IS TIME RUNNING OUT?….Colin Powell

IS TIME RUNNING OUT?….Colin Powell is in Asia and says we need to be patient with North Korea:

We’re not going to let time become a weapon to be used against us, essentially saying, “You must respond to what North Korea is asking because of time or because of what might happen tomorrow.”

But back home in the UN time is of the essence:

The United States and Britain plan to offer a resolution on disarming Iraq at the U.N. Security Council on Monday that will be accompanied by a demand for a vote within three weeks, diplomatic sources said Friday.

So which is it? Is time a weapon or not?
