The United States and Britain are stepping up military deployment.

By February 2003, the deployment is basically ready, which can be said to be on the line.

The next question is not whether to launch the arrow, but when to launch the arrow, whether to obtain the authorization of the United Nations and stand at the commanding height of morality.

The United States and Britain can’t wait to take military action against Iraq, but European countries led by France and Germany are strongly opposed to the use of force.

There are differences among the three most important international organizations – the UN Security Council, NATO and the EU.

During the cold war, the UN Security Council was divided.

Europe is now opposed to the use of force by the United States against Iraq, contrary to the Suez Canal Crisis in 1956, when the United States forced Britain and France to abandon their plans for military action against Egypt.

Of course, it is not isolated.

Many European countries have expressed their support for the United States, especially those Eastern European countries that are about to join NATO or the European Union.

These countries do not like France and Germany to dominate the EU, and the Bush administration took advantage of this to ridicule France and Germany for representing the old Europe.

Britain is a strong supporter of the United States and has led a camp in support of the United States, which has exacerbated the differences within Europe.

On March 11, 2002, US Vice President Cheney visited the UK.

After meeting with him, British Prime Minister Blair said that it was absolutely right for the United States to emphasize the continuation of the war on terrorism and the elimination of weapons of mass destruction, and then released the evidence believed to show that Iraq has weapons of mass destruction.

On November 8, after the United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 1441, Blair said in London that Iraq must abide by the resolution, otherwise it will be subject to military attack.

On January 20, 2003, British Defense Secretary Hoon announced that the British government would send 30000 more British troops to the Gulf region, including 26000 ground troops and 4000 officers and soldiers of three assault brigades, to participate in a possible military attack on Iraq.

Australia is the strongest supporter of the United States after Britain.

On September 13, 2002, Australian Prime Minister Howard said that Australia would fully support US President Bush’s statement on Iraq at the United Nations and could no longer ignore the potential threat of rogue countries such as Iraq.

On January 28, 2003, after chairman Blix of the United Nations Nuclear Regulatory Commission and chairman ElBaradei of the International Atomic Energy Agency submitted the weapons verification report on Iraq to the Security Council, Howard said that although Iraq has cooperated in procedure, it has not cooperated in essence.

The Australian government insists that Iraq does have chemical and biological weapons, He also acknowledged that Australia is formulating an emergency plan for the war against Iraq.

In addition, Japan, Israel, the Netherlands, Romania, Macedonia, Bulgaria and Croatia have publicly expressed their support for the United States.

Some other countries conditionally support the United States in resolving the Iraq issue by force, but under the pressure and influence of the United States in international affairs, these countries said that they could support the United States in using force against Iraq if they were authorized by the Security Council within the framework of the United Nations.

Countries holding this position include Canada, Norway, Iceland and other countries, mainly within NATO.

However, the overwhelming majority of countries in the world oppose the US position.

France and Germany, which have always been allies of the United States, have a firmer stand against the use of force by the United States and will not give in at all.

France has always been opposed to the US military settlement position on the Iraq issue.

French President Jacques Chirac has publicly stated on many occasions that he advocates that the use of force against Iraq must be supported by the United Nations Security Council and opposes the unilateral use of force against Iraq by the United States.

On October 25, 2002, following the new draft resolution submitted by the United States and Britain to the United Nations Security Council, France also circulated an informal draft to the members of the Security Council, emphasizing the maintenance of Iraq’s sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity and simplifying some working procedures for weapons verification in Iraq.

France cooperated with some other countries to promote the adoption of resolution 1441 by the United Nations.

On February 10, 2003, France, Germany and Russia issued a joint statement calling on the international community to achieve the goal of disarming Iraq by peaceful means in accordance with the spirit of all resolutions on Iraq since the adoption of UN Security Council Resolution 687.

Germany is another important ally that firmly says “no” to the United States.

The German government made full use of the public anti American sentiment and adopted an uncompromising position on the Iraq issue.

Germany has worked closely with France in the international political arena such as the United Nations and NATO and adhered to the position of peacefully resolving the Iraq issue.

On February 13, 2003, Germany and France reiterated their position of giving more time to the United Nations Iraq weapons inspectors, while NATO member states are still in a serious dispute over the preparation for an armed attack on Iraq.

German Chancellor Schroeder said in a speech to the German parliament that the weapons inspection work must continue in order to accurately find out what weapons Iraq has.

France reiterated the same position, and the French government said that Iraq’s attitude towards weapons inspectors is changing in a good direction.

Throughout the Iraqi crisis, China and Russia have also not advocated the use of force against Iraq and have adhered to the position of mediation against Iraq.

China and Russia have contributed to the adoption of resolution 1441 by the UN Security Council.

On January 14, 2003, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister sartanov visited Iraq to find a peaceful solution.

On February 10, Russia, France and Germany issued a joint statement opposing the use of force against Iraq without the authorization of the United Nations Security Council, hoping to give weapons inspectors more time to complete the verification task.

On February 24, 2003, the United States, Britain and Spain submitted a draft resolution on Iraq to the Security Council, claiming that the weapons report submitted by Iraq on December 7, 2002 “contains false statements and Omissions”, and Saddam “missed the last opportunity for peaceful disarmament”, believing that military means can be used to implement the resolution, Members of the Security Council are requested to vote after UNMOVIC chairman Blix submitted the third weapons verification report on March 1 (no later than mid March).

On the same day, France, Germany and Russia also submitted a memorandum to the Security Council on continuing and strengthening the verification of weapons in Iraq, pointing out that “the conditions for the use of force are not ripe”, stressing that priority should be given to the peaceful disarmament of Iraq through the verification mechanism, and requesting the Security Council to extend the weapons verification work for at least another five months.

On March 4, 2003, US Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld signed an agreement to send another 60000 troops to the Gulf regionThe surveillance plane searched Iraq for Saddam’s whereabouts.

The signal interceptor of “grey Fox” can intercept the signal sent by Saddam’s best friends using encrypted communication equipment.

As long as there is communication between these people, whether encrypted or not, they can’t escape the ears of “grey Fox”.
