Addressing the U.N. Security Council on January 20, 2003, Secretary of State Colin Powell said, regarding the need to approve resolution 1441 against Iraq: ” ‘We cannot fail to take action that may be necessary because we are afraid of what others might do. …However difficult the road ahead may be with respect to Iraq, we must not shrink from the need to travel that road.’ ”
