George W. Bush's press conference

John Robb conveys George W. Bush's press conference yesterday, including:

9/11 awoke the US to the threat of terrorism...

Shame on us for being asleep the first time the WTC was bombed in 1993.

The UN, as an organization that promotes collective security, is not working. Here's why:

  1. The UN sponsored inspections of Iraq have not worked over 12 years.
  2. The unanimous acceptance of UN resolution 1441 last September stated that this was the last chance for Iraq to disarm.
  3. Given that Saddam's Iraq continues to flout the inspections and the UN's will, the UN seems unable to bring closure on this issue.

The problems I have with this are that during these years:

  • The inspectors announced when they were voluntarily pulled out that the inspections were not working. Nothing was done back then.
  • Vice Preseident Cheney as the the head of Haliburton was raking in millions of $USD rebuilding Iraq's oil capabilities, not to mention Iran and Libya.
