Interestingly, on January 20, 2003, the Radical Party launched an international appeal known as "Free Iraq" which put forward the exile option for the Iraqi dictator as the only alternative to war. Besides, one month later, February 19, a parliamentary motion containing that appeal was passed by an overwhelming majority in the Chamber of Deputies.
