No surprises for Bobert & Co., but I am completely with wilco48 on this one.

Post 911, both current US and UK governments took stock and saw with respect to Iraq, and the total lack of action on the part of the United Nations, a threat that potentially could only get worse with the passage of time.

Yes it did require the exercise of leadership, the courage of conviction and strength of purpose to bring the situation to a head - They were not responsible for the war, for reasons best known to himself, credit for that belongs to Saddam Hussein - he could after all have co-operated fully first with UNSCOM & IAEA, or latterly with UNMOVIC & IAEA - please do not ignore that fact.
