POWELL AT THE UN….Colin Powell’s

POWELL AT THE UN….Colin Powell’s presentation to the UN seems to have been pretty impressive. The French ambassador then followed Powell with a pre-written speech that probably doesn’t mean much, but listening to it sure taught me one thing: those UN translators are really good. Wow.

My guess is that the French and Russians will posture a little bit more and then throw in their lot with the U.S. Whether that’s for political reasons or because the new evidence truly convinces them, I don’t know, but I don’t think they’ll hold out too much longer.
