Which threat was present?Given the situation, going into Iraq was the right thing to do. As I stated before, it wasnt until it was clear that GWB was actually going to do something about Iraq was there ever any question about the threat posed by Iraq --- and so, the 'questions' raised once there was a significant chance of war indicate any number of things, not the least of which was a lack of REAL desire for people to actually DO something about the monsters they are so happy to otherwise complain about.
Consider, for a moment, had the international community been more serious about Iraq from 1993-2001, with a degree of backbone and an urgency of action regarding the threat that everyone agreed was present, there might not have been a war in 2003.
It was a violation of international law. But thank you for admitting that much.How does that, in and of itself, make the war "illegal"?
