PM says UN needs to act on Iraq to survive.
"Prime Minister John Howard says the authority of the United Nations may be fatally damaged if the world body does not act against Iraq."

It is the US that is obviously posing the main threat to world peace, and the authority of the UN will be eroded if it does not act against the threat of US aggression. Howard by providing additional cover and support for US aggression is playing the part of accomplice to war crimes and crimes against humanity.

"Mr Howard has again emphasised the Government has not decided whether Australia will be involved in a war against Baghdad."

This lacks all credibility. Just as it is all but inevitable that the US will attack Iraq, having decided months and months ago to do so, it is all but inevitable that Australian forces deployed to the region will also attack.

"He says his goal is to see Iraq disarmed and that could lead to the removal of Saddam Hussein's regime."

The American goal of the war is not to "disarm" Iraq, but to overthrow the regime, to occupy the country, and to acquire control over the oil fields in the South around Basra and in the North around Mosul/Kirkuk. Howard is treating the people like mugs that couldnt understand this.
