because according to the UN charter and international law, pre-emptive strikes or pre-emptive wars are considered a category of illegal war of aggression.

I see him as a capitalist.. He is no different from Fox in his efforts to make money.
He endorses an extreme left view and denies all else in his material. I'm sure he's quite intelligent, but hes got money to make.
He's wrong on this issue. This isn't a war they were forced into, it's a voluntary military and not a draft. If you don't want to go to war don't join the military..

In regards to the legality of this war:
The United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan said in September 2004 that: "From our point of view and the UN Charter point of view, it [the war] was illegal."
Except we all know why Kofi was against the war - his son was getting huge kicbacks from the oil for food programme
Canada harbored cowards from the United States during the Vietnam "War" because they weren't largely involved in the conflict like the US was and this is aside the fact that the people of Canada are more liberal than the people of the United States.
I'm not sure that I like the use of the term "coward". Aside from the fact that US citizens shouldn't have been forced to fight in a pointless war, I would like to point out that being afraid for your own life isn't something that should be criticised by anyone.
