Dzurinda: Saddam mocks the world

PRIME Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda said that Iraqi president Saddam Hussein has been mocking the democratic world for 12 years, and that if peaceful attempts to solve the conflict failed, military action against Iraq would be justified.

Explaining the cabinet decision to allow flyovers of US and multinational coalition aircraft in the event of an armed conflict in Iraq, Dzurinda said: "We acted in this way so we could live with our consciences. We did not make the decision according to polls, but on the basis of what is the best for the future of Slovakia, Europe, and the world."
