Second UN resolution abandoned

03.17.03

So it’s starting to look like war is looming, inevitable, and that it will begin sometime this week, as allies the U.S., Britain, and Spain abandon a second UN resolution.

“The co-sponsors of the resolution have agreed they will not pursue a vote on the draft resolution,” British Ambassador Jeremy Greenstock said. “The co-sponsors reserve the right to take their own steps to secure the disarmament of Iraq.”

Meanwhile, the White House said U.S. President George W. Bush would address his nation at 8 p.m. ET Monday (0100 GMT Tuesday).

This is the final countdown. We’re in it now, folks.
