Hello,

Please help me with the query below.
Thank you.

1. Bertrand Ramcharan, the acting high commissioner for human rights, acknowledged that the removal of Saddam Hussein represented "a major contribution to human rights in Iraq" and that the United States had condemned the conduct and pledged to bring violators to justice.
"Everyone accepts the good intentions of the coalition governments as regards the behavior of their forces in Iraq," he said in a 45-page report issued at the agency's headquarters in Geneva.

Can it be rephrased: The behavor of their forces in Irag regard everyone as accepting the good intention of the coalition governments?

2. Gracious in defeat to his Polish hosts, he asserted that nothing had been settled as regards the final group placings.
How to explain ?

3. The dictates of conscience, however urgent, thus have no validity as regards the person who experience them.

The behavor of their forces in Irag regard everyone...

In your sentence, behavior is the subject and regard is the verb. It is grammatically incorrect because the verb form should be 3rd person singular: regards

It is also semantically incorrect.
Behavior can not think. Thus, it is not an appropriate subject for the verb regard.

2) The Polish team won the contest. They were the host. But he said that even though his team lost, the final rankings were not yet determined.

As for the third, it seems to be a tenet of the belief system of Kenneth Williams. I cannot give a simple paraphrase.
Hi,

How about giving a paraphrase to #1?

"Everyone accepts the good intentions of the coalition governments as regards the behavior of their forces in Iraq,"

Paraphrase:
The coalition governments have soldiers in Iraq. (There have been occasions when the soldiers behaved badly.)
Everyone accepts the statement that the coalition governments wanted their troops to be on their best behavior..
Hi,

Thanks a lot Alphecca Stars.

Oh, I see "as regards" used to show "in matters of the behavior of their forces in Irag."

That means that Where "the behavior of their forces in Irag" is concerned, the coalition government has its good intentions, and that is accepted by everyone.

1. the good intentions of the coalition governments in response to = as regards the behavior of their forces in irag

Please check it.

2. This case is cleared up by CJ.
bepleasedThe offenders were dealt with firmly though fairly.
The punishment was firm (somewhat [harsh / strict] ), but it was [fair / just] because the offenders deserved it.

though = but.

CJ

The following is my review.
Please provide your rememdy for my poor lines.

This type of order in "though" is used to show the pattern: Though firmly, fairly.
The logic intrinsic meaning is that fairness attended on the particular purpose to spite the result of which too firm could not be honored by. or ...on the particular purpose against what too firm might be expected (to be an undeserved punishing).

Yes, that is correct.
When one has good intentions as regards behavior, it means that they will take care to behave properly.
