as mentioned by devilwasp
firstly you break UN law by invadeing iraq wich you justify by using your constitution.


Uhhh, really?
Try that it is still debatable and IF it was an "illegial invasion," what nation-states are lining up to press the issue?
Jusitification can be found in multitudes of places, but then again, "justification" is a relative term, isn't it?


Resolution 678, passed on Nov. 29, 1990, authorized member states to "use all necessary means to uphold and implement Resolution 660 (1990) and all subsequent relevant resolutions and to restore international peace and security in the area." (Resolution 660, passed on Aug. 2, 1990, demanded that Iraq withdraw from Kuwait.)

Some Bush administration officials have argued that because Iraq has not complied with the cease-fire terms of Resolution 687 (a subsequent relevant resolution), which required it to disarm and cooperate with weapons inspectors, among other things, member states still have sufficient legal authority to use force ("all necessary means") against Iraq.

probably no states are pressing charges because they are afriad the US will say "that has terrorists in it!" and start an invasion, just an observation.
also the peace of the area was not threatned by a ton of unusable ore. or where they going to lob stones at kuwait?
