I'm not quite up to date on my facts but as far as I know, President Bush is addressing the UN to try and get approval for actions against Iraq. I think it's good that he's taken the initiative to consult the UN before doing anything.
Living in a country like New Zealand, I get an aweful lot of mixed feelings about this whole thing. I guess in the USA you guys are subject to biased media and propaganda and have your own set opinions from being a part of the country and culture that was attacked a year ago yesterday. For me in a different country and culture it's very different. Sometimes we even get both sides of the issue.
My opinion on a solution: UN weapon inspectors should keep trying to be allowed into Iraq, the very fact that they're not letting them in is fairly provocative in my eyes and pretty much heavily suggests that they're hiding something right? Now of course a country isn't going to be too happy about it's industries being searched and inspected but the UN is fairly nuetral and the consequences of denying them entry is pretty huge, war against America, hmmm, I know what I would choose.
Also, I think it's fairly unusual that Bush and the USA has such little support this time. In the attacks last year, there was much support from around the globe, this time there is Britain, Spain and Australia. A lot of countries, especially big, powerful ones like Russia, China, Pakistan have voiced rather strongly that they don't agree. Should attacks go ahead then that is a lot of potential anti-USA sentiment out there, probably not such a good thing. I think the whole issue has monstrous potential to go very horribly wrong.
What's your guys $0.02?
