Here Boy, Have A Snausage!

Chrétien begs U.S. not to act without UN

In a speech likely to be perceived by some in the Bush administration as a lecture, Mr. Chrétien noted that the U.S. was the primary force in the formation of the UN and hinted that much of the world doubts its motives as it barrels towards war with Iraq.

"The price of being the world's only superpower is that its motives are sometimes questioned by others," he said. "Great strength is not always perceived by others as benign. Not everyone around the world is prepared to take the word of the United States on faith."

He immediately clarified that Canada supports the U.S., saying it is "essential that the United States can count on support from around the world."

Will he shake an admonishing finger at us too?
