Unfortunately for your argument, the fact that the US congress played along with an illegal invasion does not make it "legal": The US does not make
up the entirety of the world. This wasn't Arkansas we invaded: it was a sovereign foreign state. So yeah, it's the world's business, too. And the
world legal entity for invasion is the UN, which did not give approval for an illegal war of aggression against Iraq by the US, period. Which is why
Bush had to bribe a few other states into his "alliance", or "coalition of the willing" (to invade illegally) which is now composed of us.
And, mark my words, ignoring war crimes, ignoring Geneva Conventions, ignoring the 935 fully documented lies told to justify the invasion of Iraq for
Israel does not make it legal, and will come back to bite us on the ass in ways you can't begin to comprehend.
For instance, economic wars will be conducted, and we will, no we are, sinking into Third World status daily, while Bush wants another damn $70
billion to piss away in the desert. Yep, that one trillion we spend on our military yearly evidently is for the golf course upkeep for generals, not
to actually conduct defense against real threats to our shores: See 9/11/01. Where were they, anyway? Odd, that, very odd.
McCain's insane rhetoric about "bomb bomb bomb bomb Iran", which is also just for Israel's sake, if elected, will trigger events his incompetent
administration will be unable to foresee...just like the delusional "we'll be greeted with flowers..." we got from this unelected and thoroughly
inept administration. Uh Huh, that's why more US military personnel were killed in 2007 than any other year since this insanity began. They want us
there? Delusional much??
Do you think we have the franchise to invade like Hitler did Poland? Can you explain the difference?
Wars of aggression are illegal, period, no matter what "justification" you have made up in your mind.
Illegal, end of story.
News flash: Beijing invades D.C., says alupang asked them to come and clean up the town, so they are "justified" as alupang is a US citizen.
Explain the difference, please.
