"The U.S. Military rounded up Nazi scientists and brought them to America. It had originally intended merely to debrief them and send them back to Germany. But when it realized the extent of the scientists knowledge and expertise, the War Department decided it would be a waste to send the scientists home. Following the discovery of flying discs (foo fighters), particle/laser beam weaponry in German military bases, the War Department decided that NASA and the CIA must control this technology, and the Nazi engineers that had worked on this technology.
There was only one problem: it was illegal. U.S. law explicitly prohibited Nazi officials from immigrating to America--and as many as three-quarters of the scientists in question had been committed Nazis."
Here are a few of the 700 suspicious characters who were allowed to immigrate through Project Paperclip. ARTHUR RUDOLPH; During the war, Rudolph was operations director of the Mittelwerk factory at the Dora-Nordhausen concentration camps, where 20,000 workers died from beatings, hangings, and starvation. Rudolph had been a member of the Nazi party since 1931; a 1945 military file on him said simply: "100% Nazi, dangerous type, security threat..!! Suggest internment."
But the JIOA's final dossier on him said there was "nothing in his records indicating that he was a war criminal or and ardent Nazi or otherwise objectionable." Rudolph became a US citizen and later designed the Saturn 5 rocket used in the Apollo moon landings. In 1984, when his war record was finally investigated, he fled to West Germany.

I think your blowing this way out of proportion, that picture you posted alone shows your attitude. I think it is still a bit of a stretch to say that bush is akin to adolph hitler. Hitler murdered millions of people in ways such as gas chambers, incenerators,hangings, etc.
did bush not get approval from the UN?
Even if he did not, take into consideration that the UN's existence rests largely on the shoulders of the US.
So if the US decided to take action against another nation why should a body that the US mainly supports have to approve it?
There was also evidently some insurgents in iraq with connections to bin laden. They communicate every once in a while.
There were weapons discovered in iraq but not of the number indicated by the intelligence.
Now keep in mind the terms of his surrender after Gulf War 1, which he did not abide by.
As was the Treaty of Versailles a temporary peace treaty from WW1 through WWII
1991-2003 was a decade long "second chance' for Saddam.
Therefore it was totally legal in that reason alone......PERIOD.
If you remember the build up to hostilities the Lawyers where checking into this and they did find the clause in the UN document that allowed this to happen, it is just the UN didn't like it.

The fact is the U.S. was at as state of war with Iraq and they violated the cease-fire agreement. Therefore it was completely legal to resume hostilities by any measure.
You can criticize the war in myriad ways, but you can't truthfully call it illegal.
