Then why did the US agree to that in the first place, and why did the ultimatum refer 
the 1998 UN referendum? Sounds like someone in the US state department goofed, and
that's why George III has to redraw the line in the sand. I agree with you about the
presidential palaces (I saw a map showing Buckingham Palace's grounds superimposed on
the Iraqi presidential palace, and all I could say was I didn't realize Buckingham
Palace was so tiny! :-)

Security Council resolution, which was drafted by the U.S.
