212 Points | Nearly 11 years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the international avatars of arms control are again at center stage. TeamBush was not about to "trust, but verify" the Iraqi regime's latest mammoth, 12,000-page report to the United Nations that claimed Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction. (See p. 20.) Predictably, some in Hollywood began protesting. A new group organized by actors Mike Farrell and Anjelica Huston called Artists United to Win Without War sent an anti-war letter to the White House. Celebrities who signed the letter included Oscar-winners Kim Basinger, Jessica Lange, and Susan Sarandon-as well as actors Matt Damon, Ethan Hawke, Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman, and Laurence Fishburne. Actor Ed Asner told UPI the president had to go to war to please the right wing: "If he defuses it, he'll look like a wuss to the hard-liners and the fundamentalists."
