Our President Bush has made the position of the United States abundantly clear: if Iraq continues to disregard U. N. Resolution 1441 (disarm weapons of mass destruction), or if Sadaam Hussein, and his entire family, do not voluntarily proceed into exile, Iraq will face military action. That military action will come, if not from the U. N., from the United States and its allies, particularly Great Britain and Australia. Should the U. N. fail to act decisively and quickly, it will surely weaken. Obviously, the preference of the United States is for the U. N. to act. The outspoken resistance to military force by U. N. Security Council members France, Russia and China ironically serves to strengthen the Iraqi position of disregard for U. N. Resolution 1441 and the U. N. in general.

N. and serve to weaken that international body. Considering Hussein’s adamant stance regarding the use of weapons of mass destruction and the blatant disregard for the U. N., military action, on some front, is eminent. That eminence has been such since the unprovoked attack on Kuwait in 1991. Present military action is only bent on bringing that exercise to a conclusion. Yes, the possibility of the United Stated going to war with Iraq is a foregone conclusion. The course of action chosen by the United States and its allies, regardless of the U. N., is to oppose regimes of tyranny that have little or no regard for human rights, human values, or human life. Sadly, military action is all those regimes understand. Hopefully, the eminent action will serve to diminish other regimes of tyranny and terror. …
