| Iraq's U.N. Ambassador Says 'the Game Is Over'|
Wednesday, April 09, 2003
UNITED NATIONS — Iraq's U.N. ambassador said Wednesday "the game is over" and he expressed hope that the Iraqi people will be able to live in peace.
Mohammed Al-Douri's comments to reporters outside his residence were the first admission by an Iraqi official that U.S.-led coalition troops had overwhelmed Iraqi forces.
"My work now is peace," he said. "The game is over and I hope the peace will prevail. I hope the Iraqi people will have a happy life."
Al-Douri said he has had no communications with Iraq for a long time because of the war.
Earlier, the ambassador told Associated Press Television News: "This is a war and there will be a winner and someone who is a loser."
When asked what he thought about the scenes being broadcast from Baghdad, he said, "Well I don't know really, I watch the television like you."
