In UN address: Bush to ask for money, troops in Iraq
President Bush will challenge the United Nations with a call to action for money and forces in Iraq despite differences and a refusal by many countries to make major contributions.
Bush, addressing the General Assembly on Tuesday, will argue that the United Nations needs to meet its global responsibilities or risk being irrelevant, the AP reported.
Bush will make the case that a body such as the United Nations has to show it is "actually capable of acting, and really willing to act, and not just debating," said Condoleezza Rice, his national security adviser. (Albawaba.com)
