DIPLOMACY IS OVER. AND TONIGHT PRESIDENT BUSH WILL TELL THE WORLD THAT SADDAM HUSSEIN HAS ONLY ONE OPTION LEFT TO AVOID WAR. COLIN POWELL/SECRETARY OF STATE The only way to avoid the serious consequences is for Saddam Hussein and his immediate cohorts to leave the country. IRAQ IMMEDIATELY REJECTED THAT IDEA, AND VOWED TO FIGHT. THE END OF DIPLOMACY CAME AFTER THE US, SPAIN AND GREAT BRITAIN PULLED THEIR RESOLUTION CALLING FOR MILITARY ACTION - BEFORE A U.N. VOTE. THOSE AMBASSADORS SAY THE VOTE WOULD HAVE BEEN CLOSE, AND THEY BLAME THE DIPLOMATIC FAILURE ON A VETO THREAT FROM FRANCE.
JOHN NEGROPONTE/U.S AMBASSADOR TO U.N it's most regrettable, as we said earlier, that in light of the explicit decision of one country to exercise its veto it was not possible to move this resolution forward. THE DECISION LEAVES A CLEARLY DIVIDED SECURITY COUNSEL. EVEN THOUGH WAR SEEMS IMMINENT, THOSE OPPOSED TO MILITARY ACTION URGED A MEETING WEDNESDAY FOR A LAST-DITCH EFFORT TO ACHIEVE A PEACEFUL END TO THE CONFLICT. GUNTER PLEUGER/GERMAN AMBASSADOR TO U-N If there's one percent chance to avoid war do 100 percent effort
THE PRESIDENT HASN'T SAID HOW LONG HE'LL WAIT BEFORE GIVING THE ORDER FOR WAR, BUT HE'LL REPORTEDLY GIVE SADDAM AND HIS FAMILY 48 HOURS TO LEAVE...AND IF HE DOESN'T WAR COULD START ANYTIME AFTER THAT. AS, CBS NEWS, WASHINGTON NOW BACK TO YOU.))
