Jordan’s King Abdullah warned of “immense instability” in the Middle East if the United States moves against Iraq. During his State of the Union speech Tuesday night, President Bush cited the danger Iraq, along with Iran and South Korea, poses to the world. On CBS’ “The Early Show” on Thursday, Abdullah also said Bush is “working and has been working with the international community behind the scenes to try and get Arafat into a position where America can play a much stronger hand.”
