What's good for the goose...
Attack on Iraq Must Be Avoided, says Archbishop Jean-Louis Tauran, Vatican secretary for relations with states.

With respect to America's unilateralist approach, he had this to say:
"A member of the international community cannot say: 'I will do this and you will help me, otherwise you stay home,'" he said. "If it were so, the whole system of international rules would crumble. The risk would spell a jungle. It could happen that tomorrow in a dispute with another state, a country could start saying: 'I am going to put things in order.'"

Archbishop Tauran used harsh words when referring to the threats coming from Washington to use the atomic bomb in response to Saddam Hussein: "It would be better not even to echo this hypothesis, as it seems so monstrous to me."
