In reference to the sign in the photo that says in part, "The US Gov. Had No Legal Mandate to Invade Iraq":

What in hell would a "Legal Mandate to Invade Iraq" be? If the author of that sign means that the invasion was not authorized by the United Nations, then I would remind them that the U.S. and U.K. did have a "Legal Mandate" to kill well over one million Iraqis through "sanctions" between 1990 and 2003. The U.S. also had a "Legal Mandate" to kill a couple of million Koreans from 1950-1953, and the Zionists had a "Legal Mandate" to steal half of Palestine from its indigenous inhabitants to set up an apartheid state. (Of course, the Zionists went well beyond their "Legal Mandate", but since they had and have the biggest imperialist power on their side -- if not in their pocket -- they never suffered any consequences.)

Law, including international law, is the formalization of the rule of the powerful. While we should expose the hypocricy of those who make the laws but don't obey them, we should do it in a way to undermine respect for law among the oppressed, not strengthen it!

' then I would remind them that the U.S. and U.K. did have a "Legal Mandate" to kill well over one million Iraqis through "sanctions" between 1990 and 2003.'

while all of the above may be true - the US/UK did not have a legal mandate to invade Iraq. simple as that.

Hypocrisy and UN is an old story - the UN is not a world government and has no more of the powers that the security council gives it. Historically, it has never become more than the sum of its parts.

International Law is a good place to start if you want to create a just and orderly world, Bush and Blair's war will either destroy the concept of international law or perhaps, in reaction to Bush and Blair's illegalities, give it new life.

This is the global question for this era.
