Thats the problem.
Your basing the idea of legality on AMERICA'S system.
Welll .... ya? Who else's "standard" should we use? ... Australia's? England's? They went in with us and made benefits off of it.
Every country has there own opinion. If America invades a country, and a country stronger then us attacks us for doing it, and we loose, then we
would have broken the law. The law of the victor.
Only strong nations are allowed to make international laws. Only strong nations can enforce said laws.
This war is OUTSIDE of America..
Then there would never be a war? Ever? .. Amazing... it seems these more moral laws you think of are easily broken huh?
I am sure Iraq does not have a law on the books that says "America is not allowed to attack us"
And if they did, they can sue us
Understand, there is no such thing as international law, nor even international standards because they morph to every nations needs and desires.
this war is illegial. There's no 2 ways about it.
War cannot be illegal unless lost. Japan lost, so its imperialism was illegal. Germany lost, it paid the price dearly because it was illegal.
Russia won, so they could pillage and capture and imperialise what ever they could, the same with America. See where I am going?
Its against International law.
Who enforces International Law? .... The UN? .. Not without America .. NATO? ... Not without America... The Warsaw Pact may have kept us inline in a
few areas, the Soviet Union could influence against us, we invade Vietnam, they make sure we loose, they invade Afgahnistan, we make sure they loose.
If it was against the law......
Where is the reprocution?
Just because the United states congress and government declare '' its legal '' doesnt mean
Just because you political ideologies are against war, does not make it illegal.
It makes it morally wrong. That is the difference. But we are speaking legality.
that over-rules international Law
There is no New World Order.
There is no One Law.
There is no Standard of Law.
There is no Standard of Ideology.
There is no Standard of Political Action.
There is no International Law.
On the Internatioanl Scene there is only one thing -
All the worlds nations look for them selves, and for them selves only. In the event they look after another, it is only for some kind of gain, no
matter how small or big. There is no world wide regulation on actions .. IE: America breaks the International Law... who gives us the ticket? Who
arrest us? Who brings us to court? ........... The World is Anarchy ..
There is no Central government to direct all the worlds governments.
Hitlers government declared the invasions of France, Poland, Holland to be legal, and for the holocaust to be declared ' right '
And they where legal.
Until he lost. Then they where illegal.
If your giving yourself the power to deem iraq legal, then your saying the germans were justified in their ' legal ' habbbits.
Yes... that is EXACTLY WHAT I AM SAYING.... you may just begin to understand yet...
