"Earth to Bush: No Iraq War!"

Today, a day after the anniversary of the September 11 attacks, President Bush will address the United Nations General Assembly.

Administration officials say Bush will challenge the UN to enforce resolutions requiring Iraq to accept the destruction of its chemical and biological weapons. The US will seek a single, toughly worded Security Council resolution that would authorize military action if Iraq refuses comprehensive inspections. Bush will tell the UN that its authority will be wrecked unless it forces Iraq to comply with previous resolutions.

This is exactly why people are on the East River, across from the United Nations, right now. Activists have hung a gigantic banner that says: "Earth to Bush! No Iraq War!"

Guest:

  • Jason Mark, organizer with Global Exchange.
