Former UN Official Warns Against Rush to War with Syria

Anybody remember Hans Blix?


The UN weapons inspector who sparred with the Bush administration in the run-up to the Iraq war is once again warning the United States against rushing to action.

Hans Blix told the Global Viewpoint Network that the United States and its allies should wait for UN inspectors to finish their analysis of allegations that chemical weapons were used in Syria before taking any action. 

"As we've seen before, the political dynamics are running ahead of due process," he said. "I do not go along with the statement by the U.S. that "it is too late" for Syria now to cooperate. That is a poor excuse for taking military action."
