Jewish World Review March 11, 2003 / 7 Adar II, 5763
http://www.jewishworldreview.com | Stymied by French and Russian opposition, U.S. President George Bush gave the order today to withdraw all U.S. troops from the Persian Gulf region.
The executive order marks the end of U.S. efforts to enforce United Nations resolutions demanding that Iraq get rid of weapons of terror.
"We've done all that we can," said a dejected-looking Mr. Bush. "I guess we were just wrong. I have to agree with the verdict of the Security Council, after all the United Nations is boss."
Iraqi President Saddam Hussein applauded the U.S. move, calling it a "victory for justice and multi-national unity."
U.N. delegates from France and Russia called on
President Bush to come to the United Nations and
formally apologize for distracting the Security
Council from its important work of passing
resolutions condemning Israel.
