U.S. Sees Possible Failure at U.N. over Iraq
The United States acknowledged on Wednesday it might fail to win Security Council backing for action to disarm Iraq, but Baghdad said the effort was a waste of time because Washington was determined to find any pretext for war.
British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw echoed growing signs of U.S. impatience. “The international community can’t wait forever,” he told reporters in London. <Um, the ‘international community’ the Secretary speaks so pompously of consists of two countries – the US and UK>
White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said the outcome would be “either an agreement or a failure to reach agreement, and it could be either one right now.” <Your tax dollars at work! He actually gets PAID to say stuff like this>
