Do you really think the U.S. who used chemical warfare in VietNam, who use depleted uranium in their ordinance and who failed to sign on to the ICJ really give a shyte about "international law"...
Shake ur head dude your eyes are stuck...
To some extent I do feel that circumventing international law is acceptable. I do not however condone the blatant acts as perpatrated by the US nor Israel. Yet I still stand behind Israel, as I see most of their acts as pre-emptive self defence. Where as the US is acting out of corporate greed in most cases.
The invasion of Iraq, in my eyes, was just as illegal as Saddams launching of scuds into Israel. Only because I believe it had little to do with a regime change, but more over a lot to do with a change in corporate agenda in Iraq. If they had just gone in, made a big mess, but had not changed Iraqs laws to open it up to foreign exploitation and only removed Saddam. I might be more inclined to accept their propoganda. But seeing as they waltzed in, created a new set of rules and laws that allowed US exploitation, well you get the picture.
I'm a challenger Mikey, not all laws are created in the right mind set, nor do they all serve the greater good, so from time to time, they must be bent, but for a just cause. In the case of Iraq, I do not feel they meet the burden of proof.
I could quote Cretien her, but I'm not in the mood for a laugh that big, lol.
