missing the point again

After bypassing the “irrelevant” UN in March, the Bush Administration now wants to have UN forces in Iraq, but without ceding or sharing any power with the other countries. In other words, the Administration is looking for mercenaries to help fight the war. Is it any wonder that France and Germany have said no?

    You mean the power to dissagree and argue and snarl the whole thing up, right? ‘Cause that’s exactly what would happen with the UN in charge.

    Just ask the Kosovars what happens when the UN “organization” (sic) gets ahold of a country. That is, when the UN actually DOES something, instead of sitting on their thumbs like during the genocide in Africa.

    Mercenaries? What about those non-American, non-British troops there right now? Are you calling them mercenaries? To their faces? I wouldn’t.

    Nope. In my opinion they are scared to death of terrorism, and actually resent us doing something about it and “riling up” those evil bastards. Funny how terrorist acts in those two countries somehow stopped a few years ago…

    Nevertheless, I hope they change their minds…perhaps after greater disaster when the Bush admin. has to backtrack farther and rescinds its absurd demands.
