[casi] New SCR

[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ]

The following paragraph comes from an article relating to the current UN
Security Council pending resolution.  I was wondering if something was happening
behind the scenes which encouraged Germany, Russia, France, and Syria to switch
positions and vote in favor of this.  I understand that the PR folks claim
this SCR will not send Euro troops but it was my understanding that that was the
motive behind the US proffered SCR.  Does anyone know of any specifics on
this topic.

Hope you are all well.

French officials said the European support would not translate into the funds
and troops sought by the United States to ease the burden of American forces
in Iraq. U.S. officials expressed hope that it would translate into additional
EU money for the country's reconstruction.

~Just 10% of our military budget spent yearly on the United States could give
every high school graduate a college education for four years.

~The proposed $48 billion increase in military spending for next year (2004)
is bigger than the total military budget of any other country on earth.
