High Noon in Europe

Buckley, Jr., William F.
February 2003
National Review;2/24/2003, Vol. 55 Issue 3, p58
This article argues that the U.S. faces a military challenge in its Iraq offensive, without the backing of France and Germany. It was reported that France and Germany were early on put off by U.S. President George W. Bush, because he had said shortly after taking office that the Kyoto Treaty was dead. The language was probably unwise, but Bush's decisiveness was in wholesome contrast to former U.S. President Bill Clinton's evasions from the issue. President Bush will either ignore the call to go to the United Nations (UN) to authorize military action against Iraq, or he will go to the UN and live with a French veto.
