How else are the UN madated resolutions to be enforced without the threat (or actual use) of force? Saddam lost a war against a coalition of over 30 countries in 1991, and signed a cease-fire forcing him to accept conditions laid down by the UN. All have been ignored, broken and disregarded. Is he to be rewarded for this by saying "oh, well..."? After the rape of Kuwait, should he be left in power and allowed to rearm for another try? Or be allowed to possibly give poison gas to a terror cell for use in New York or London? To build missles that can carry anthrax to Isreal and Saudi Arabia? Were those UN resolutions just a joke in the first place, we didnt REALLY mean it? It sends a clear message, much like the failed League of Nations in the 1930's that a determined agressor can indeed circumvent the authority of the democratic nations of the world, without fear of consequence. Saddam proved he is not responsible nor trustworthy enough to leave to his devices. What should be done about it?
