To do one's duty is always a good thing...

Reader comment on item: Iraq's Weapons & The Road to War

Submitted by Alain Jean-Mairet (Switzerland), Jun 3, 2003 at 10:23

It is all good and well, of course, if the U.S. now makes efforts for explaining (pretending?) that it had (U.N.-) juridical sound reasons for attacking Iraq. It is a necessary act, a tribute to politeness and correctness.

But after (what one can consider) the repeated fiascos of the U.N. I’d prefer some new ideas, some vision of an international consensus or structure that is bearing more potential future than the mere comeback to the old, WWII-inspired, thing.

Oh well.
