Bush: Saddam is patron of terror

President George W. Bush used his weekly radio address Saturday to press the point that Saddam Hussein is a direct threat to the United States because he could provide weapons of mass destruction to terrorists. “The attacks of September the 11, 2001 showed what the enemies of America did with four airplanes,” Bush said. “We will not wait to see what terrorists or terror states could do with weapons of mass destruction. We are determined to confront threats wherever they arise.” The radio address came as the United States and Britain seek a new United Nations resolution setting a deadline of March 17 for Saddam Hussein to disarm and presumably opening the way for military force if he does not. But as debate on the resolution begins in the Security Council next week, Bush faces growing opposition to his war plans across the world, at home and in the United Nations.
