UN Resolution 1546: let's see if the doubters now 'fess up'

The unanimous vote in the Security Council is welcome. What we now need to see is certain nations putting their point-scoring behind them (e.g. France and some others) and waking up to real-life politics (e.g. Spain), to demonstrate that they really are pleased that a tyrant is gone from Iraq and they really do wish to see the Iraqi people in a position to create a working democracy.

UPDATE: (Thursday 10JUN04 11.47 BST) Well it didn't take France long to make clear that it's up to no good, did it?
