Dear Nygdan and Druden,
Perhaps the Hinzman people should request Kofi Annon/UN to testify regarding their position on this illegal war?
Even the majority of states within the United Nations agree the Iraq war is illegal and unjust.
It would be a very wise and strategic move for the Hinzman team to get the UN involved based on their comments towards the Iraq war.
Just throwing some mud from the sidelines with this thing you guys got going.

Kofi is a war criminal and should be put on trial. End of story........
