AlJazeera: Clinton undermines Bush gang over Iraq
Former US President Bill Clinton said America should not dominate Iraq and should instead grant the United Nations a greater role in restoring security in the war-torn country.

His outspoken views will cause fury among the Bush Administration which wants to maintain overall control of the occupied country.

We should play a role and spend a lot of money there, but we shouldn't dominate, Clinton said during a brief visit to the United Arab Emirates, Reuters reported.

What we need is for the UN to nominally supervise the security situation and NATO to be used as an instrument, he said during a question-and-answer session at the American University of Dubai, where he launched a scholarship programme.


Israel ought to be prepared to give up the West Bank and East Jerusalem. International forces should be invited to enforce agreements and see through a transitional period, Clinton said.
