Global Message


  • For more than ten years, the regime in Iraq has built the case against itself with continual failure to meet the demands of the UN. And for the past four years, Saddam Hussein has been able to pursue weapons of mass murder unchecked by UN inspections.
  • Repeatedly, Iraq's version of "without conditions" has meant deception, delay, and disregard for the UN. This weekend, the regime again tried to limit the sites open to investigation.
  • Saddam's regime has repeatedly violated 16 UNSC resolutions designed to ensure that Iraq does not pose a threat to international peace and security.
  • We will continue to work with the UN and member nations toward a strong Security Council resolution that demands Iraqi compliance with their UN obligations and make clear the consequences of non-compliance.
