[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] It would be funny if it weren't so tragic. The BBC has an article (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/2269462.stm) today about the 'US threat to stop Iraq inspections'. They report Colin Powell as saying that the Security Council must spell out to Iraq the serious consequences if it fails to co-operate with the inspectors!!! But they fail to explain how Iraq can co operate with the inspectors if the US goes out of its way to prevent the inspectors doing their job! The article also juxtaposes the following two quotes beautifully: Saddam Hussein insisted that Baghdad does not possess chemical, biological or nuclear weapons. and The White House called the statement disappointing. I *bet* the White House is disappointed. Now it's just going to have to go to war and forget about appearing as the Christian Crusader that it wants us to believe it is. _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
