Which Baathist policy did you approve of the most the gassing of Kurds or the murder of the 'disappeared'?

Looks like a Bad night for New Labour.

It also amazes me how you create a blog, make comments and dont even bother to defend.

Are you one of those bloggers who acts like they know whats going on but yet isnt able to defend any points being made?

The only opposition to the War in the UN were from Countries with an obvious vested interest who were trading amssively with Saddam, i.e. France and Russia. The impersonation of UN mandate of being somehow neutral makes you look incredibly naive.

The UN isnt neutral. As we both know the US, Russia, France, China and Britain vote for their own interest.

But if we are going to have an international body, we have to respect what it says and go through the proper procedures.

Have you forgotten that we had the UN in Iraq looking for WMDs, and suprise suprise they couldnt find any. So what did we do, attack!
If your going to support regime change then lets go to Iran and Saudi Arabia.

Personally I'd love to say I had any faith in the UN. It's nearly as pointless as the League of Nations.
