NYT: U.S. May Drop Quest for Vote on Iraq in U.N.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 7 The Bush administration has run into such stiff opposition at the United Nations Security Council to its plan for the future government of Iraq that it has pulled back from seeking a quick vote endorsing the proposal and may shelve it altogether, administration officials said Tuesday.

Two weeks after President Bush appealed at the United Nations for help in securing and reconstructing Iraq, administration officials said, his top aides will decide soon whether it is worth the effort to get a United Nations endorsement.

2. Yes, why lift a finger to help our troops in Iraq
when you can win a few votes by cozying up with Sharon.

3. As I predicted
And the arrogant, Orwellian, spin continues:

"We don't want to play this game for a long, long time," said a senior administration official, reflecting a certain exasperation with the Security Council. "This is as much a choice for the Council as it is for us. They can be multilateral and be part of it, or they can tell us to do it ourselves."
