    Former UN inspector Blix says war illegal

    Kind of what many people always maintained...

    BBC News - Iraq inquiry: Former UN inspector Blix says war illegal

    ...an illegal war against an illegal regime in which no one emerged with their ethics intact. Does this put an end to the debate?

    No, because Hans Blix does not specialize in international law. Only the ICJ has the jurisdiction to decide if this war was illegal or not, and it clearly was not as Saddam was in violation of UNSC resolutions that had the authorization to use force to ensure compliance...

    Good thing this guy is a "former" UN inspector. Honestly I don't trust the UN as a credible source anymore. It seems they are too preoccupied with "strongly condemning the actions of Israel" and bashing any action that America does. I somewhat believe the idea of international laws are silly, especially laws that regulate war.

    Whether or not I agree with the Iraq war, there is no such thing as an "illegal" war.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I have one thing to say on this subject. And then despite all the partisan hackery that shall ensue in the next few days on this subject, I shall attempt to stop myself from talking anymore in this thread. So *drumroll*

    You're right if you believe that agreements made hold no legal bearing.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
