Re: Congratulation, President Obama!!!Mar 21st, 2011
Part of the reason why George W Bush lied or misconstrued the evidence in making his case for the war in Iraq was because of international law, to avoid the technical war crime of engaging in an unauthorized aggressive war against a sovereign member of the United Nations. They made the legal case that they were enforcing UN resolutions the UN was refusing to enforce. Saddam Hussein had two unauthorized aggressive wars under his belt by then, as well as a couple of attempted genocides. Bush's worst crimes were through incompetently handling the post-invasion and allowing the humanitarian crisis that unfolded. But the United States' worst crime in Iraq, I think, is invading it 12 years too late, which was more a failing of the United Nations really.
Oh, that's going to piss off some people I'm sure.
I know you didn't. My question was directed at EagleSmack.
I'm afraid I don't follow you.
