"This is not a matter of inspections. It is about disarmament of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction and the Iraqi regime's compliance with all other Security Council resolutions."
"This will require a new, effective U.N. Security Council resolution that will actually deal with the threat Saddam Hussein poses to the Iraqi people, to the region, and to the world."
We must destroy them to save them. Where have we seen this before?
Apparently, he's referring to some extra requirements he made in his speech to the UN. In my opinion, if the UN caves to the demands of one madman, it will then be irrelevant.
And Bush is showing himself to be a madman. He's too insanely fixated on war to accept victory. We won. We got our guarantees. We got the inspectors. Let's move on from here.
