Episode Summary

Leslie Gelb
Tonight, President of the Council of Foreign Relations, Leslie Gelb. Jon begins tonight reporting on the new date now picked for war, March 17th, St. Patricks Day. Jon notes the insanity that as the war begins, Americans will be partying at the same time. Jon then reports on the continued U.N. vs. U.S. debate over whether the U.N. will authorize war with Iraq in a segment called "Slowdown: Iraq". Regardless, the U.S. will still go to war disregarding the U.N.'s guideline. Incidentally, that's why the U.S. is invading Iraq in the first place. Finally, Jon looks at Broadway's orchestra strike in a segment called "The Music Ban". Jon talks with Senior Theatre Analyst Stephen Colbert about this story.moreless

      • Jon Stewart: The United States has been lobbying hard to win the nine UN security council votes it needs to gain passage of the March 17th deadline resolution. But if France and Russia follow through on their promise to veto the measure the US will be forced to wage any war on its own. In other words if the UN does not authorize force against Iraq for disregarding its guidelines, the US will unilaterally attack Iraq, thus disregarding the UN's guidelines!
        Of course we'll claim the UN is too weak to enforce its own resolutions which we are attacking Iraq for violating while in turn violating the UN.
