yah! right! Idiot! http://www.opinionjournal.com/editorial/feature.html?id=110005145 REVIEW & OUTLOOK Blix's Endorsement Another foreign leader for Kerry. Sunday, May 30, 2004 12:01 a.m. Hans Blix has never made a secret of his opposition to the war in Iraq, but recently the former chief U.N. weapons inspector and Swedish diplomat has dropped all pretense of, well, diplomacy. His frequent public statements are confirming that the Bush Administration was right to suspect that he was so opposed to the war that he'd have given Saddam Hussein the benefit of every doubt and more in order to prevent it. Mr. Blix told a Danish newspaper last month that Iraqis have suffered more from the war than they did under the reign of Saddam Hussein. In a recent interview with a French newspaper, he said President Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair "may have been sincerely convinced there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq like some were convinced of the existence of witches in the 18th century." In a speech in Chicago in March, he said the war in Iraq has only made the threat of terrorism worse. And he recently dismissed as no big deal the explosion in Iraq of a roadside bomb containing sarin gas. Then on Tuesday a friend sent us the following excerpt from an interview published Monday in the Italian newspaper La Stampa: Q: "Are you tracking the U.S. Presidential campaign?" Mr. Blix: "I place my trust in the multilateralism of Democratic candidate John Kerry. And in any event, I think that the whole world should vote on 2 November because so much depends on the outcome of that vote." Mr. Kerry remarked in March that foreign leaders were privately supporting his candidacy. Mr. Blix has now revealed the kind of foreigners he was referring to.
