Who's on the High Road?
Great New Dem Daily today about the responsibility of the UN to enforce its own resolutions. Here's the money graf-

since President Jacques Chirac's admission that there are no circumstances under which France would allow U.N.-sanctioned
military action to occur. "Whatever happens, France will vote no," he told reporters in a domestic television interview. Aside

Saddam Hussein after 12 years of unenforced resolutions, and it looks like the United Nations may simply refuse.
