15-0


After two months of intense negotiating, aka backroom deal-making, the UN Security Council has voted 15-0 in favor of a resolution setting a new inspections regime for Iraq with tight deadlines, and stating any non-compliance is a "material breach" of the resolution, setting the stage for military action.

So, three days after getting what he wanted from American voters, George W. Bush has gotten what he wanted from the United Nations, answering in full all the critics of his "unilateralist" Iraq policy.

A good week, I'd say.
