Con to the question "Should the US Have Attacked Iraq?"
"The world community said that they had not finished their inspections, and that's why the U.N. did not authorize an attack on Saddam, did not support it at the time.
The president said that it was so urgent that we use military force that he was going to cut off the U.N. inspections. It was our president who made a decision to initiate an attack with great urgency, who cut off the inspections of the U.N. and forced those inspectors to leave before their work was complete.
The U.N. wanted more time. And there was no great immediacy, there was no great imminence of a threat that should have caused this president to cut off those inspections, begin the attack before the inspections could be completed."
