This is all well and good...but the original action against Iraq was as unjustified as this one would be...it was a set up from the start, and we were all lied to...again. They inflamed public opinion and got us all to compound the crime with Sanctions...something as ugly as any country we have ever denounced would have done.
I have no reason to trust the United Nations any more than the United States...but forcing Bush to go before them would be a step in a better direction...I think people realize now that the Gulf War helped bring us 9/11...much to the joy of arch conservatives in this country, and elsewhere...and that more of the same will be forthcoming if we keep pushing these people to desperation.
The United Nations fucked up monumentally the first time around...let them redeem themselves if they can.
