And he makes some interesting points, a lot of people on this site have been saying for ages.
On weapons of Mass Destruction:
Blix said that he thought the US might initially have believed Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction - although its "fabrication" of evidence
raised doubts about even that - but that Washington was now less convinced by its own claims.
"I think the Americans started the war thinking there were some. I think they now believe less in that possibility. But I don't know - you ask
yourself a lot of questions when you see the things they did to try and demonstrate that the Iraqis had nuclear weapons, like the fake contract with
Niger," he explained
On world wide effect:
"The US maintains that the war on Iraq is designed to send a signal to other countries to keep away from weapons of mass destruction. But people are
getting a different message. Take the announcement North Korea has just made. It's tantamount to saying 'if you let in the inspectors, like Iraq
did, you get attacked'.
And a lot of other good points. He must be pretty peeved to speak out in this way.
