British ministers: Attack on Iraq to take place after U.N. vote; Baghdad continues to destroy missiles
British ministers told The Telegraph that Washington and London are ready to launch military action immediately after the United Nations Security Council votes on a second resolution, regardless of its outcome.
Senior ministers said that Tony Blair was ready to launch military action, irrespective of whether Britain, the United States and Spain secured a majority vote for a second resolution in the UN.
Such a step would almost certainly trigger ministerial resignations, the newspaper added.
Meanwhile, Iraq continued to destroy its arsenal of Al Samoud 2 missiles on Sunday, U.N. and Iraqi officials said.
Iraq also plans to destroy a casting chamber for the missiles at a site south of Baghdad on Sunday, U.N. and Iraqi officials said. (Albawaba.com)
