UN Iraq resolution needs 'improving'
A draft UN resolution on Iraq's future submitted by Britain and the United States needs improving, anti-war countries have said.

German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer said on Tuesday the draft offers a good basis to start from but "needs more work".

The document, sent for early negotiations on Monday, endorses a "sovereign Iraq" under an interim government being assembled by UN envoy al-Akhdar al-Ibrahimi.

It would formalise an end to the US-led occupation of Iraq more than a year after the US-led war that toppled Saddam Hussein.

1. Of course, in US news I've seen...
...they mention only that the German FP Minister says the draft offers a "good basis", leaving the "needs more work" out of the headline...

2. I Agree
Since when does a long-term formal agreement between two nations depend on one side "looking good" and squat for the other?

Maybe I'm cynical but I've seen it before.
