This time it's different : Jack Straw

British Foreign Secretary Jack Staw argues that he was once a peace protester, but with Saddam and Iraq now, its a different story.

Even at this late stage, I hope and pray war can be avoided. But without the credible threat of force, which the US and ourselves have ensured, there would be no inspectors in Iraq today, and the removal of that threat now would open up an even greater danger to the region. It has never been more vital than now that the international community comes together to uphold the authority of the United Nations and to enhance the cause of peace and security in Iraq and elsewhere.
