Putin wants U.N. to take lead in Iraq
GLENEAGLES, Scotland - British Prime Minister Tony Blair may want to change the subject from the divisive issue of Iraq, but U.S. President George W. Bush and other G-8 leaders can't seem to get enough.

A Kremlin official said Wednesday that Russian President Vladimir Putin would push the Group of Eight to work toward giving the United Nations a leading role in Iraq, as well as setting a possible timeframe for U.S.-led forces to leave Iraq.

The Kremlin official, who declined to be identified in accordance with Kremlin press rules, also said the G-8 should work to make the political process in Iraq more inclusive, in line with the recommendations of last month's Brussels meeting on Iraq hosted by the European Union and the United States.

2. I agree also
For the sake of the Iraqi people some solution has to come from some other source rather than the incompetency exhibited by the present US administration.

3. Putin( Former KGB) is more reasonable than the Chimp!
Can you believe the Russians have a better president than we do, and he is a dictaor and a former KGB head? Did you ever think the day would come when the head of the KGB was more humane than the Unites States President?

5. I bet you are right and
that's why Putin is pushing this. He will probably fail to get the UN to sub for US but even in losing this push, Putin further marginalizes the US to the world. We have become an anathema to the world.
