Drift into War with Iran Out of Control, Says UN
The UN’s chief nuclear weapons inspector yesterday warned against the use of force against Iran, in what UN officials said was an attempt to halt an “out of control” drift to war.
His outspoken remarks, which drew a parallel between Iran and Iraq, appeared to take aim at the US and Britain. They followed comments on Sunday night by the French foreign minister, Bernard Kouchner, who said: “We have to prepare for the worst,” adding “the worst is war”.
“I would not talk about any use of force,” Mohamed ElBaradei told reporters at the International Atomic Energy Agency headquarters in Vienna. “There are rules on how to use force, and I would hope that everybody would have gotten the lesson after the Iraq situation, where 700,000 innocent civilians have lost their lives on the suspicion that a country has nuclear weapons.”
There has been a string of reports out of Washington that the Bush administration is running out of patience with diplomacy and is intensifying its plans for air strikes as a means of halting Iran’s disputed nuclear programme.
We did not listen to the world before. We are not listening to the masses now. Should I expect W to listen now?
