Global Message


  • Saddam Hussein's regime now claims that Iraq would comply unconditionally with UN demands.

  • While this is evidence that world pressure can force the Iraqi regime to respond, it is also a return to form.

  • Repeatedly, Iraq's version of "without conditions" has meant deception, delay, and disregard for the United Nations.

  • Saddam Hussein has repeatedly violated 16 UNSC resolutions designed to ensure that Iraq does not pose a threat to international peace and security.

  • Today the President will again consult with Congressional leaders about Iraq, while Secretary Rumsfeld testifies on Capitol Hill and Secretary Powell continues his discussions with UN leaders.\
