We were in Lebanon for a peacekeeping mission. We are in Iraq because Saddam committed numerous acts of war against the U.S..
The Taliban didn't exist during the Afghan-Soviet war.Did you just mention Taliban? Is it the same Taliban that the US armed, financed and trained against the USSR?
And S.Ossetia put a big one on the "international community" that thinks nothing of bombing civilians in Belgrade and concealing atrocities committed against civilian Serbs. Where is your "international community" with regard to the US war in Afghanistan and Iraq?
Your "international community" needs to get its act together if it wants to engage in righteous posturing.
As for Transdnistra, do you know that not only they have Russian money and Russian flag, and Russian passports, they are waiting with anticipation to become part of Russian Federation, especially if Romania will get its way and will annex what is now called Moldova.
The U.N. Charter grants a nation-state the right of self defense when attacked.Where is your "international community" with regard to the US war in Afghanistan
U.N.S.C.R 678 granted member nations "all necessary means" to enforce resolution 660 and "all subsequent resolutions", and Iraq violated nearly every single subsequent resolution.and Iraq?
So what? It was legally obliged because they said they were legally obliged. The U.S. could pass a law making it legally obligatory to grant citizenship to the Kurds as well.After the fall of the Soviet Union Russia was LEGALY obliged to grant its citizenship to ANYONE who was born in the USSR and members of their families.
It's called a hypothetical question. By your logic IF the U.S. granted citizenship to the Kurdish then the U.S. would have a right to invade Iran for failing to recognize Kurdish independence and sending in troops to prevent their secession.So why the US doesn't grant its citizenship to Kurds?
