The Buck Stops Here

The President—whoever he is—has to decide. He can't pass the buck to anybody. No one else can do the deciding for him. That's his job.
Harry S. Truman

Tonight President Bush sounded a lot like Harry Truman. During his speech tonight he said we are going to call for a vote to disarm Iraq with force even if we don't have the votes. Twelve years of passing the buck on what to do about Iraq's infractions is going to stop. If UN is to exist in the future, France, Germany, and Russia will either vote to enforce the resolution or get out of the way. Maybe then Saddam will decide to flee and avert a war.
