News Analysis

  • Last week, weapons inspectors carried out their duties without interference. This has achieved the following:
  1. Strengthened the image of inspectors as a credible, well-intentioned team to counter Saddam's accusations of them being US collaborators seeking an excuse for war.  
  2. It has given the US more time to both continue its military build-up as well as persuade more countries to join the campaign against Saddam.
  3. And most importantly, it attempts to give Saddam a false sense of security in the hope that he reveals less of his arsenal of weapons on the 8th December, making it easier for inspectors to prove him in 'material breach'.
  • In the meantime, the UK government is continuing its campaign to make the idea of regime change more acceptable. They are now making direct appeals to Muslims in Britain, explaining how dangerous Saddam is. The Foreign Office is due to publish a report detailing Saddam's human rights violations.

  • The US government has welcomed an extensive study, produced by a group of various Iraqi opposition groups and individuals, that details the transition to democracy as post-Saddam Iraq is mapped out.
