U.S. and British warplanes have bombed more than 80 targets in
Iraq's southern "no-fly" zone over the past five months, conducting
an escalating air war even as U.N. weapons inspections proceed and
diplomats look for ways to head off a full-scale war.
. . . The United Nations does not recognize the no-fly zones or the U.S.
assertion that it is enforcing U.N. resolutions.
