WAR ON TERROR: No Iraq war..yet.


US Secretary of State Colin Powell yesterday played down speculation of an imminent attack on Iraq.

He said America wants to see "regime change" in Baghdad but President George Bush has yet to be given military options.

Mr Powell also tried to damp down talk that the US would be prepared to "go it alone" to overthrow dictator Saddam Hussein.

He said America was in constant talks with its European and Middle Eastern allies.

But he declared Saddam had to allow UN weapons inspectors into his country immediately - with no "funny business or conditions" - to ensure he was not developing weapons of mass destruction.

And he warned: "What we might do in the future I do not know."
