No case for war say bishops.

THE BISHOPS of the Church in Wales have claimed that the case for war on Saddam Hussein remains far from convincing.

They issued a statement to the House of Commons hours before American President George Bush turned up the heat on Iraq. In his State of the Union address, Mr Bush said Saddam has not accounted for up to 25,000 litres of anthrax, 38,000 litres of botulism toxin, 500 tons of sarin, mustard gas and VX nerve agent and upwards of 30,000 munitions capable of delivering ch emical weapons.

In his address, President Bush said: ``If this is not evil, then evil has no meaning.''

Earlier the bishops from the Church in Wa les issued their own statement against another war, declaring that US and UK Government arguments for conf lict with Iraq were ``far from con vincing''.
