...What he doesn't tell us is how he's going to grapple with the situation. He doesn't give us the kind of Cuban Missile Crisis type ammunition to tell us what he so knew that we must act now.
Nor, frankly, does he deal with what I think are the differences between the United States as the President articulates our policy, and the rest of the international community. We want regime change. The rest of the international community wants enforcement of the resolutions.
Now, if you enforce the resolution and in the process you get regime change, that's quite different from the objective of regime change. And what we have done by taking a regime change approach in this administration and the last one, has given Saddam Hussein an opportunity to say, why should I cooperate? They're not going to lift the sanctions no matter what I do. And it's those kinds of issues, it seems to me, which he has got to grapple with.
...if regime change comes out of enforcement of the resolution, you won't get any objection from I think anyone. But if your objective is to simply change the regime, it is very difficult for the international community to agree that we are ought to introduce this new concept.
the total number of resolutions against Israel would now equal 95 instead of 66.
