UN resolution to give Saddam last, last chance
"The second resolution on Iraq, which diplomats are referring to as "Iraq's last, last chance" to disarm, is expected to be presented tomorrow. It states that Iraq is in "material breach" of resolution 1441, which gave Iraq a "last chance" to rid itself of weapons of mass destruction.

"The second resolution also reminds Iraq that the consequences of remaining in material breach are serious. Essentially, this means that Saddam must immediately disarm, or go into exile, or else the US will lead a military attack on his country.

"US officials do not doubt that the second resolution will be passed, despite the French President, Jacques Chirac, saying this week that his country was not yet ready to vote for it."
