Saddam is not going to following new UN resolutions
Iraq announced that it would not follow the new resolution from the UN Security Council, no matter what it might say. The official statement from an Iraqi radio station said that the decision to reject any new resolutions of the world community was made during talks with Saddam Hussein’s participation.
Senior Iraqi officials also took part in the talks. However, it was not reported where the meeting actually took place. A Baghdad radio station reported that the American government was trying to make a fake, provocative resolution with the help of the UN Security Council. Iraq claimed that it would not deal with any new decisions regarding.
American and English pressure on certain members of the UN Security Council (Russia, France, China) is growing stronger. The USA might do something to prevent the return of international inspectors to Iraq if the UN Security Council does not pass another resolution on Iraq. This was stated by Colin Powell Friday.
The United States called upon the approval of a new war-threatening resolution concerning Iraq. America claims that this document should be passed if Iraq does not destroy its mass destruction weapons. Donald Rumsfeld supported Powell. The US Defense Secretary said that the majority of Iraqi mass destruction weapons is buried underground. Rumsfeld also added that a large part of the weapons is hidden near schools, hospitals, and mosques.
Air raids on those objects will inevitably result in numerous casualties. America does not have any other way out, since it will have to deal with Saddam and his "A-bomb" in the future. Donald Rumsfeld said that it would be a more dangerous and more expensive thing to wait.
Powell’s statement at the UN Security Council was like an ultimatum to Russia, France, and China – the three countries that are in opposition to the USA and Great Britain. His words sounded like an ultimatum against the background of Saddam Hussein’s recent statement on Iraq’s willingness to grant entry to UN inspectors. Those three countries, especially Russia, believe that sending international inspectors back to Iraq is the major issue of all in this respect. Russian Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov stated that a new resolution on Iraq would only exacerbate the situation.
