On this day August 4, 1997

U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan approves a revised Iraqi aid distribution plan under the U.N. oil-for-food program. Since late May, Iraq has refused to sell any oil until the U.N. approved the revised aid distribution plan which is designed to speed up the procedure for approving shipments of humanitarian goods.

It has always been baffling to me how the world runs. One minute we are invading these countries the next we are cutting deals with them. Do you think if the rulers and governments stood on the frontlines they would later make the same deals? It is really something to wonder about. How many good deals would we miss if that happened?
