NEW YORK, Sept. 12 ó Making his case against Saddam Hussein to world leaders, President Bush told the U.N. General Assembly on Thursday that ìaction will be unavoidableî against Iraq, unless the United Nations enforces resolutions requiring Baghdad to disarm. Bushís speech followed an address by U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, who warned the United States against taking unilateral military action to topple Saddam......

I was at work but watched off of I thought it was a great speech and he even delivered it well which at times seems a little difficult for him to do, lol.

Kofi Annan should do something about Iraq if he doesnít want the US to, in my opinion. Otherwise, what purpose does the UN serve other than passing meaningless ëresolutions.í Not to mention Iraq has ignored previous UN resolutions. Yet, the UN (aka paper tiger) does NOTHING. Doesnít the ICC treaty give the UN the authority to go after Saddam also?

Anyone else watch it?

"If you strike, the UN will strike the USA " ?

I didn't watch it but I did see parts of it on MSNBC, he sounded very firm and confident in what I heard. I just heard on the news about hour ago that Colin Powell is supposed to meet with the UN as well to set an ultimatum for Iraq
I don't know all the details at the moment though....

i wouldn't say he gave the speech ~well~. i don't think that man is capable or good oratory. he just sounds like a moron. but at least he didn't screw it up or choke on a pretzel or something ....

anyway, just really wanted to say that the ICC doesn't give the UN the capability to go after saddam. and the US shat on the ICC treaty anyway.

- qo.

I've encountered that same look, that same posture during so many business presentations by 'rookies'. You could see the WHEEL(singular) spinning - "Don't look like your reading, sound firm". He mangled the language in the usual fashion- syntax & tense errors ad infinitum, but what I found more telling was when he finished the speech, he sat in his chair, shoulders slumped, letting out a big sigh so noticeably, even the Associated Press reported on it!
Idiot Boy drops ultimatums, manages a slogan or two, and his supporters go into Pavlovian overdrive. Can the expectations on a president be set any lower? Does managing NOT to soil himself at the podium now count as being Churchill like?
It's not a video game, flesh & bone will be torn asunder, it won't be Afghanistan where we've had more deaths from Friendly Fire than from the already vacated enemy.
As our distinguished Republican Senator from the Heartland said, "If Mr. Pearle & the rest of them are so eager for war, let them be on the first transport out!"

If Clinton was still in power Afghanistan would be untouched, Al-qaeda would be blowing more stuff up and bin laden would be laughing his ass off !!
I think apponents of President Bush have greatly underestimated him and use a veil of insults to cover their mistake.
