8 European Countries Agree With The US On Iraq



As expected, they see both the wisdom of standing up to tyranny and resent the power grab by the French and Germans in their names. Spain, Portugal, Italy, United Kingdom, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Denmark issued a joint statement recommending against yet another UN resolution, instead calling on Iraq to obey the last one or fact consequences.

"Europe has no quarrel with the Iraqi people. Indeed, they are the first victims of Iraq?s current brutal regime. Our goal is to safeguard world peace and security by ensuring that this regime gives up its weapons of mass destruction. Our governments have a common responsibility to face this threat. Failure to do so would be nothing less than negligent to our own citizens and to the wider world.

The United Nations Charter charges the Security Council with the task of preserving international peace and security. To do so, the Security Council must maintain its credibility by ensuring full compliance with its resolutions. We cannot allow a dictator to systematically violate those Resolutions. If they are not complied with, the Security Council will lose its credibility and world peace will suffer as a result.Europe has no quarrel with the Iraqi people.
