Con to the question "Should the US Have Attacked Iraq?"
"Iraq does not today present an immediate threat warranting an immediate war. France appeals to everyone to act responsibly to ensure the respect of international legality. It appeals to them to maintain the Security Council's unity by staying within the framework set by UNSCR 1441.
To act outside the authority of the United Nations, to prefer the use of force to compliance with the law, would incur a heavy responsibility."
"Declaration by Jacques Chirac President of France," French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mar. 18, 2003
