    Blair gives Saddam 'last chance' to disarm(Filed: 25/02/2003) Saddam Hussein must provide "100 per cent" compliance with United Nations demands on disarmament if he is to avoid war, Tony Blair has told MPs.   Tony Blair, flanked by Jack Straw and Gordon Brown, addresses MPs "This time, Saddam must understand - now is the time for him to decide," the Prime Minister said in a Commons statement."Passive rather than active co-operation will not do. Co-operation on process but not on substance will not do. "Refusal to declare properly and fully what has happened to the unaccounted for weapons of...

        U.S. Says It's Deadline Time for Iraq to Disarm Feb. 23 — By Hassan Hafidh BAGHDAD (Reuters) - The United States warned on Sunday it was deadline time for Iraq to disarm or face war as Baghdad said it was seriously considering U.N. demands to begin destroying its al-Samoud 2 missiles by March 1. "We are reaching that point where serious consequences must flow," said Secretary of State Colin Powell, using Washington's language for war as the missiles became a major test of Iraqi compliance with the United Nations. Powell, a driving force behind a new U.S....
  • What If Iraq Disarms?

    Vanity Question
    What if Sadaam Hussein actually reveals ALL of his WMD's and turns them over for destruction, and comes completely clean? Perhaps this is unlikely, but doesn't it expose a weakness in U.S. strategy that exists because we chose to go the disarmament route, when our real interest is in regime change?If the Iraqi's really came clean, there would be an enormous pressure to admit the inspections "worked." The U.S. would say this proved Sadaam's deceit, but wouldn't a full confession be the type of "true change of heart" that we have been saying Iraq must demonstrate?I think it was Senator...

    TEHRAN, Jan 14 (AFP) - Iran supports US efforts to disarm Iraq of weapons of mass destruction but not its aim of imposing regime change in Baghdad, a top Iranian security official said Tuesday. "If the US goal is to disarm Iraq of weapons of mass destruction, all regional countries agree," said Hassan Rohani, head of Iran's Supreme Council for National Security in talks with Finnish Foreign Minister Erkki Tuomioja. "But if the US wants regime change in Baghdad, it is in violation of the UN charter and all the regional countries are opposed to that," he said, quoted by...

    WASHINGTON: Former US president Jimmy Carter, this year's Nobel Peace Prize winner, called on Friday for disarmament by the United States, which has taken the lead in urging such countries as North Korea and Iraq to destroy their weapons of mass destruction. "One of the things that the United States government has not done is to try to comply with and enforce international efforts targeted to prohibit the arsenals of biological weapons that we ourselves have," Carter said on CNN's Larry King Live programme broadcast late Friday. He also called for more stringent efforts by Washington "to reduce and enforce...

    President Bush (news - web sites) says he'll try diplomacy "one more time," but he does not think Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) will disarm — even if doing so would allow the Iraqi president to remain in power. "We don't believe he's going to change," Bush said as skeptical allies debated his proposed U.N. resolution that would force Saddam to rid Iraq of weapons of mass destruction or face consequences, possibly military action. "However, if he were to meet all the conditions of the United Nations (news - web sites) — the conditions that I've described very clearly...

    <p>WASHINGTON — In an "important speech" to the nation Monday night, President Bush explained that Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein poses a unique threat that must be addressed now rather than later.</p> <p>"The threat comes from Iraq. It arises directly from the Iraqi regime's own actions, its history of aggression and its drive for weapons of terror," Bush said. "The threat from Iraq stands alone because it gathers the most serious dangers of our age in one place."</p>

    CRAWFORD, Texas (Reuters) - The Bush administration on Friday played down a British suggestion of a deadline for Iraqi compliance with U.N. arms inspections, demanding Iraq disarm "now" and ruling out talks. "The United States position is that the Iraqi regime needs to abide by its obligations -- there is no room for negotiations or discussion -- they need to do so and do so now," White House spokesman Scott McClellan told reporters with the president on his August vacation. With transatlantic tensions emerging over potential U.S. military strikes to oust Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, Britain said on Thursday it...
