UN loses patience with the American way: The Guardian reports on the debate in the United Nations General Assembly over the US occupation of Iraq, including excerpts of speeches by Bush, Chirac and Annan. Bush even raised the issue of WMDS and links to terrorism, but there is scant sympathy for the US position in the Assembly. Chirac, supported by much of the UN, has dictated tough terms for the US: let the UN take charge, end the occupation, handover sovereignty in months. If Bush cannot accept these terms, he risks total disaster.
