    Oh, that won't require a tin foil hat. Eisenhower told us 52 years ago that this would be the danger of the MIC. But just look at the support war gets on this board despite that.

    UNITED NATIONS U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Tuesday warned that any "punitive" action taken against Syria for an alleged chemical weapons attack last month would be illegal without Security Council approval or a sound case for self-defense.

    The U.S. and France have blamed Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime for the alleged Aug. 21 attack and are considering military action in response. Such a strike would almost certainly occur without the approval of the Security Council, where Russia and China have consistently used their veto power to block action against Assad's regime. The Obama administration argues that a chemical weapons attack cannot go unpunished because of the council's inaction.

    "As I have repeatedly said, the Security Council has primary responsibility for international peace and security," Ban said at a news conference. "The use of force is lawful only when in exercise of self-defense in accordance with article 51 of the United Nations Charter and or when the Security Council approves such action.

    He also warned that a military strike against Syria could unleash more turmoil and bloodshed in a crisis that has already killed more than 100,000 people.....snip~

    Nah.....But this was the First time it was released today about the action being illegal. World Wide. So now all are getting the UN doesn't want to see any Strike By the US and the French.

    Might have to do with France running around saying they need to punish someone.

    I would think it precarious for rebels to try to follow the rules of war. That would almost certainly lead to their losing the conflict.

    Mornin Jog. Well the rebels that all have taken the Pledge against the US. I don't think they care about anything other than being in Power. So I doubt they will listen anytime soon.
