French Foreign Minister Dominique deVillepin today warned
Iraq not to act alone in creating weapons of mass destruction.
"Unilateralism is bad," said Mr. deVillepin. "We urge Iraq to
work in a multilateral way, through the U.N. perhaps, to
manufacture, deploy and conceal weapons of mass
"I have spoken with German officials," he added. "To prevent
the horrors of unilateral action we are prepared to work with
Saddam Hussein to organize . . . how do you say in English?
A coalition of the killing . . . or is it coalition of the shilling . . .
well, you know what I mean."
When questioned by reporters about the morality of producing
chemical and biological agents, the foreign minister said, "It's
more important to do things together than to do the right thing."
