all i am saying is while it has been since 1991, war has only been imminent for a matter of months, and while France and the UN obviously should have had a plan by now, issuing a deadline of 24 hours only serves to complicate the matter.
Bush is a good president. He united a nation, even the world, in the wake of 9-11, and I have great respect for a man who suffered so much derision to come and act like he did during that time. Right now, however, I just don't believe he is acting with the common interests of the American public at heart. Of course, I'm not a U.S. citizen, but that is exactly what is going down in the U.K. right now and I'll be damned if it is much different across the pond, that the majority want a war rather than want to prevent it.
