ADRID, May 6 - Spain's new prime minister said on Thursday that he would never send Spanish soldiers back to Iraq, even if foreign troops there were put under the authority of the United Nations or NATO.

In an interview at Moncloa Palace, Mr. Zapatero dismissed the creation of a peacekeeping force under the United Nations as "rather improbable or utopian" because of the unstable security situation in Iraq.

Similarly, he rejected the idea of a NATO-led force similar to the one that exists in Afghanistan, saying that it was more likely that a force assembled by the Arab League "could give the Iraqis peace of mind."

iMay282004 Surprised UN 'Respects' Choice of New Iraqi Leader

1 hour, 41 minutes ago

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The United Nations was caught off-guard on Friday when the Iraqi Governing Council announced it had chosen Iyad Allawi to lead the interim government taking office June 30 but "respects" the choice, U.N. officials said.

Although Allawi, a British-educated Shi'ite neurologist, had been high on the list put forward by U.N. envoy Lakhdar Brahimi, the U.N. official was not present when the choice was made, chief U.N. spokesman Fred Eckhard said.

"I assume this choice will hold, but the process isn't over yet," he said. "Let wait to see what the Iraqi street has to say about this name."

May302004 Iraq council hopes to fill out Cabinet

9 minutes ago

In an effort to accelerate the formation of a new government to lead Iraq into the post-occupation era, Iraq's Governing Council is to meet Sunday to try to reach consensus on the remaining Cabinet positions.

UN officials say Brahimi hoped to find candidates outside the council, a U.S.-appointed advisory body whose members are regarded as pro-American by most Iraqis. The U.S. sought to enhance the legitimacy of the future government by including the UN in the process.

Jun012004 Iraq's new government introduced amid barrage of violence

5 minutes ago

BAGHDAD (AFP) - Iraq's first post-Saddam_Hussein era government was unveiled after bitter negotiations between the US led-coalition and the outgoing Governing Council, while insurgents launched several deadly attacks to mar the ceremony.

Brahimi, who had been drafted by the coalition to assemble the government, alluded to the nasty business of choosing the lineup in the public ceremony Tuesday.

"I believe that those who were chosen to perform this mission will be qualified and effective and capable," Brahimi told the audience, which included US overseer Paul Bremer.

But not everyone was so optimistic.

Brahimi's boss UN Secretary General Kofi Annan complained

"the process wasn't perfect" and predicted "lots of hard work ahead."

Brahimi was thought to have been undermined by both the US-led coalition and the council.

...
DaVis "...My feeling is twofold: I don't think we are going to straighten out this country any time soon; it's going to be a very long haul. On the other hand, vast areas of Iraq are very peaceful and have been rid of a disgusting and repressive government.

The other thing is, everyone talks about Iraq not being stable, but when it was stable it attacked Israel in 1967 and in 1973, it attacked Iran, it attacked Kuwait, it fostered terrorism in the Middle East.

Who wants a stable Iraq? It's better for us and, in a way, better for the world that this government has been weakened and destroyed.

Does it leave a mess behind? Yes.
Do we owe it to the people of Iraq to try our best to clean up that mess? Yes.
But is that mess our fault? No. It's a very complicated situation..." -P.J. O'Rourke
