BTL: European Leaders Harshly Critical of Bush 'Axis of Evil' Speech ...

European Leaders Harshly Critical of Bush 'Axis of Evil' Speech Fears expressed that U.S. unilateralism will undermine fight against terrorism

Interview by Between the Lines' Scott Harris.

In his State of the Union address delivered before Congress on Jan. 29th, President Bush singled out three nations: Iraq, Iran, North Korea, and their terrorist allies who he stated "constitute an axis of evil -- arming to threaten the peace of the world." The president went on to say that the U.S. must act against these regimes to deny them "the materials, technology and expertise" to make weapons of mass destruction.

While the president did not specify what actions America would take to achieve his goals, the governments which Mr. Bush threatened reacted with anger and charged that the accusations leveled against them were baseless. But long-time U.S. allies in Europe were also critical of the bellicose tone of the speech. French Prime Minister Lionel Jospin warned that neither American unilateralism or military means alone will reduce the threat of terrorism. Chris Patten, the European Union's commissioner for international relations and former chairman of Britain's Conservative Party, accused the Bush administration of a dangerously "absolutist and simplistic" stance towards the rest of the world. This criticism comes as U.S. military advisors have been deployed to the Philippines and speculation grows about a future U.S. assault on Saddam Hussein's regime in Iraq.
