U.S. should not act alone against Iraq, James Baker
Former Secretary of State, James Baker said Sunday the political and economic cost of ousting Iraqi President, Saddam Hussein could be great if the United States acts alone and urged the Bush administration to first seek to build a wide international coalition.
Baker, who published his views in an opinion piece in The New York Times, is the latest in a series of public figures and former U.S. officials voicing reservations about unilateral U.S. military action to topple Saddam.
The War on the Right about the wisdom of an Iraq War continues. Poppy vs. Junior? Having James Baker do an op-ed in the NY Times is definitely bringing in the heavy artillery.
