Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Alex Downer, Australian Foreign Minister, says that it wouldn't make sense to give the UN control of postwar Iraq.
Although he has previously called for the UN to play a big role in post-war Iraq, he now says it should not lead the interim administration.
"You would go from foreign control of Iraq in the form of the United States, to foreign control of Iraq in the form of the United Nations - it's much better to go from the first stage to the point where Iraqis are controlling their own country," Mr Downer said.
