Kissinger warns against toppling Saddam
Overthrowing Iraqi President Saddam Hussein militarily could alienate US allies and set a precedent that would not be in the interests of the US, according to a Monday opinion article by former US secretary of state Henry Kissinger.
"America’s special responsibility, as the most powerful nation in the world, is to work towards an international system that rests on more than military power - indeed, that strives to translate power into cooperation," Kissinger wrote in an opinion column published by The Washington Post.
