On Sunday Saudi Arabia said it would not allow the U.S. to use its facilities for any attack on neighboring Iraq, even if a strike was sanctioned by the United Nations. Meanwhile, in Baghdad a senior Iraqi diplomat has told Democracy Now! that he believes if the United Nations Security Council voted today on Washington’s Iraq Resolution, at least two nations, France and Russia, would veto it. The comments come in the latest installment of Democracy Now!’s Iraq journal filed from Baghdad by Jeremy Scahill and Jacquie Soohen.
