Global Reaction to Secretary Powell-s UN Address

Hosted by
Yesterday, Colin Powell made America-s case to the UN Security Council, saying that tape recordings, satellite photographs and statements from unnamed informants proved that Saddam Hussein has breached Council resolutions. Powell said that calls for -serious consequences,- and that means war. However they answer that question, and whatever their reservations may be, will America-s allies be able to resist the growing pressure for military conflict? We get international reaction from pundits and journalists around the world, including one who interviewed Chief Weapons Inspector Hans Blix earlier this week. (This program is an abbreviated version of To the Point, broadcast earlier today.)
