CNN.com – U.S. confident of international support on Iraq – Jan. 24, 2003 “I don’t think we’ll have to worry about going it alone,” said U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell. “If it can’t be solved peacefully and if the U.N. should fail to act — and I hope that is not the case — then the United States reserves the right to do what it thinks is appropriate to defend its interests, the interests of its friends and to protect the world.

They finally said it! It’s out in the open. The US Government believes it is the saviour of the world. The Superman complex grips the White House.

Of very special interest here is the “Quickvote” panel on the lower right of the article – the results are skewed 60/40 against the US entering a war without broad world support. Ver ver innarresting..
