    Hey, even a giant U.S. troop buildup for months doesn't seem to work much less a warning for the U.N.

    Oh Yes it does.

    Even by Kofi's "own" admission, they would not have gotten as far as they did, had the US not had troops off their shore. Same with Blix, etc. They all acknowledged, that it was the US force threat that actually got Saddam to do as much as he did. But, could not bring themselves...to actually "do it". ie...acutally enforce the resolution they agreed to. Just too "risky"..as they said.

    same reason they aren't in now. too much danger. Too much risk..etc.

    There are UN statements that say just that...prior to OIF. That it would just be too dificult to act. Therefore..best not too. Same as Dafur, same as everything else.

    Even now, knowing that if Iraq fails...it could be very bad for them...they won't send troops in. Just too risky. They would rather blame Bush..and deal with the insurgency in their own countries...than have to "really" own up to some international responsibliltiy. But, of course..French "colonies" are different. And of course Kofi..would back them up..on the back end..should they have to act uniaterlally.

    What a crock of HORSE ~~~~!

    Please note that no actual warning has been issued. Annan is currently "urging" one. At this rate...

    I just heard on the radio that the UN passed a resolution "demanding" a peace agreement by the end of the year. Human Rights Watch is pissed, as this resolution is weaker than the previous two. The earlier ones mentioned government culpability. This one doesn't even mention the government.
