On September 12, 2002, Bush, speaking before the General Assembly of the United Nations outlined the complaints of the United States against the Iraqi government, detailing Iraq's alleged noncompliance to the terms of 16 resolutions of the Security Council since the Gulf War in 1990.
The United States characterized this as a ploy by Iraq and continued to call for a Security Council resolution which would authorize the use of military force.
Under furious debate was whether a further Security Council resolution (the so-called "second resolution") was necessary to authorize war, or whether 1441 and preceding resolutions sufficed to legitimize military enforcement of the UN's disarmament aims.

In favour of this view is the fact that previous resolutions legitimizing war under Chapter VII used much stronger terms, like "…all necessary means…" in Resolution 678 in 1990 and that Resolution 1441 stated that the Security Council shall "remain seized of the matter."

 An Analysis of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1441 -- Institute for Public Accuracy (IPA)
The newresolution of the UN Security Council is a charade, a device to obscure.Nevertheless it is transparent enough that one can point out the trip wires,hoops and hurdles (combined with dangerous ambiguity) placed so that Iraq mustinevitably fail to avoid material breach.
In 1998, when the UN Security Council passed aresolution endorsing Kofi Annan's negotiated stand-down with Iraq, theresolution called for 'severest consequences.' At that time, every Councilambassador except that of the U.S. said explicitly that use of the term did notconstitute an automatic authorization of the use of force for any country orgroup of countries.
The ceasefire was not basedon Iraq's acceptance of the provisions of resolution 687: it was based on'official notification by Iraq to the Secretary-General and to the SecurityCouncil of its acceptance' of that resolution (resolution 687, para.

 Patrick McLain, Settling the Score with Saddam: Resolution 1441 and Parallel Justifications forthe Use of Force Against Iraq*, 13 Duke J. of Comp. & Int'l L. 233 (2003)
By finding Iraq to be in "material breach," Resolution 1441 represents a concession by the other members of the Security Council to allow the United States to make the strongest case yet for implied authorization for force.
Second, the United States acknowledges that Resolution 1441 requires the Security Council to convene in the event of Iraqi noncompliance, and, under such circumstances, the United States would appreciate the unambiguous legal cover that a new resolution explicitly authorizing force would provide.
Under this conception of Resolution 1441, the convening of the Security Council is little more than a formality; force may be used even if the Council decides not to authorize it.

As the nation's largest grassroots organization focusing on the work of the U.N., it is UNA-USA's hope that the U.S.-U.N. relationship will remain constructive given the challenges we may face ahead.

 ASIL Insights: Security Council Resolution 1441
            The United Nations Security Council, in Resolution 1441 (November 8, 2002), unanimously deplored Iraq’s lack of compliance with Resolution 687 (1991) on inspection, disarmament and renunciation of terrorism in Iraq, and went on to make several decisions under Chapter VII of the U.N. Charter.
[1]   The full text of Resolution 1441 is available on the U.N. web site, < http://www.un.org/Docs/scres/2002/sc2002.htm >.
            Finally, the United States government has argued, wholly apart from Resolution 1441, that it has a right of pre-emptive self defense to protect itself from terrorism fomented by Iraq.  For discussion of pre-emptive self-defense in the terrorism context, see the ASIL Insight, “Pre-emptive Action to Forestall Terrorism” (June 2002).

We also know that there are no true, just, or fair reasons behind the adoption of this resolution in the name of the security council, after the well known understanding agreement between the representatives of Iraq and the UN Secretary General and the press statement issued jointly by Blix, ElBaradei, and the Iraqi representatives.
We hereby inform you that we will deal with resolution 1441, despite its bad contents, if it is to be implemented according to the premeditated evil of the parties of ill-intent, the important thing in this is trying to spare our people from harm.

 Preparations for 2003 invasion of Iraq
Political preparation for war began in earnest during the period of weapons inspections in Iraq over the winter of 2002-2003, carried out by a team led by Hans Blix with the authority of UN Security Council Resolution 1441.
It further argues that the U.S. is legally justified in taking military action by previous UN resolutions, most notably 1441 which states that "serious consequences" would result from a failure to disarm on Iraq's part.
Subsequently, both the U.S. and the U.K. accused France of effectively blocking the negotiations by threatening to veto the proposed resolution "whatever the circumstances", but France maintained that its position had been intentionally misconstrued.

Iraq responded to Resolution 1441 by denying it has weapons of mass destruction, indicating its intention to cooperate with the weapons inspectors, and stating it would later issue an analysis of why this resolution violates the United Nations Charter, prior Security Council resolutions, and other provisions of international law.
It remains to be seen when and how the United States will unilaterally decide that Iraq has breached the terms of Resolution 1441, and use that as a pretext to strike.
The resolution further declares that “false statements or omissions in the declarations submitted by Iraq” and “failure by Iraq at any time to comply with, and cooperate fully with the implementation of this resolution shall constitute a further material breach of Iraq’s obligations.

But Mr Bush stressed the urgency of the resolution, saying he was not willing to wait two months for the UN Security Council to approve a new text - the time it took to approve Resolution 1441.
It would be the Security Council's "last chance" to show its resolve to disarm Iraq, he warned.
