It acknowledges that both countries are "occupying powers" and makes reference to the "vital role" of the U.N. in reconstruction. However, the text of the resolution indicates that the U.S. and Britain are not simply asking the U.N. to "get out of the way," but are asking the U.N. Security Council to grant them extensive authority to run Iraq, to sell the oil, and to use the proceeds as they see fit. Instead there is a need for the Secretary General to be more involved. There should be more regular supervision of the occupying powers; the oil fund should be supervised by a monitoring and advisory board that reports back to the Security Council periodically.
