OK I was thinking. I think we can all agree the UN is slow and worthless to our efforts to disarm Saddam in the fashion that we'd like. So it appears that we are just going to go in there and disarm him outside of UN authority. This is illegal mind you. NOw I am Saddam and I see just how worthless the UN is. Do you think for one minute I am going to have them strip me of my defenses so I can lean on them to protect me? Take Kuwait for example by the time the UN got in there their women had been raped their oil well's on fire, dignity taken, the country looted... Would you render yourself defenseless to the point where you had to depend on the UN? Talk about GUN Control. IF the US of all countries can just attack Iraq outside of UN authority whats to stop anyother country from doing so? I mean are we attacking N. Korea? Hence the dictators defense... And the reason why we can't go in without UN authority. What good would the resolution be if we did?
