Correspondents said that the speech of the president Bush called for the international support for expulsion of Hussein government and contained the purport of obtaining of UN’s support.

However, Secretary-General of UN objected to a military plan of US through speech of UN general assembly before the speech of the president Bush. He emphasized “If any country uses the military power to cope with wide threats on international peach and security, there is no substitute for the unique legitimacy provided by the United Nations.”

“We will not allow any terrorist or tyrant to threaten civilisation with weapons of mass murder," the president Bush said in the speech for the first anniversary of 9.11 terror.
