Outgrowing the U.N

This article focuses on various forthcoming United Nations resolutions related to Iraq. Mexico is threatening to vote with the wrong people in the forthcoming U.N. resolutions on Iraq. The first resolution would authorize a resumption of inspections in Iraq for forbidden things, like poisons and nuclear weapons. Only if that inspection were unsuccessful would a second resolution authorizing military action be considered. France and Russia are demanding approval of planned United States policies in Iraq. Aware of this, the U.S. is greatly stressing the need to get a vote from those countries in the United Nations Security Council who are there rotationally, without a veto.
