Iraq: European Reaction

Many Europeans are watching with dismay as diplomacy unravels at the United Nations. Robin Cook, a member of the British cabinet, resigned to protest Prime Minister Tony Blair's support for the Bush administration on Iraq. Officials in Germany and France, as well as Russia, continued to stress their commitment to disarming Iraq through peaceful means. NPR's Sylvia Poggioli reports from London.
