Nelson Mandela, today before the South African Parliament:

"We live in a world where there is enough reason for cynicism and despair. We watch as two of the leading democracies, two leading nations of the free world, get involved in a war that the United Nations did not sanction. We look on with horror as reports surface of terrible abuses against the dignity of human beings held captive by invading forces in their own country. We see how powerful countries -- all of them so-called democracies -- manipulate multilateral bodies to the great disadvantage and suffering of the poorer developing nations."
