Rich Cream: KellyX: Rich Cream: KellyX: beta_plus: Preemptive wars are completely legal when Democrats wage them.[upload.wikimedia.org image 300x315]Funny since that was authorized by the United NationsHow does that make it legal?I dunno, Authorized by the world body that represents almost all nations on the planet with the majority agreeing on the actions and none of the permanent members with veto power vetoing it? I reckon that made it legal.If it's illegal it's illegal, whether or not the people perpetrating the crime believe otherwise. How the hell does that work?
MooseUpNorth: Satanic_Hamster: Reinstall QaddafiI suppose the details of how he means to accomplish this are something we're not allowed to ask about?
timujin: beta_plus: Just because the UN violated its own rules does not make it any less illegal.What law was broken?
chachi88: Also: Isn't Obummer taking heat for arming the Libyan Jihadis with the weapons that killed the ambassador?
Rich Cream: msimon8: It's the entire raison d'être for the UN, and the League of Nations before it. So one state can't go in and start wars as they please purpose of gaining territories. They wanted an international agreement for any international intervention. The UN has always acknowledged the necessity of armed conflict in certain situations.I get a little crazy when I see the term "pre-emptive war". And then I conflated that with the Libya thing. And then somehow I was arguing for law and order. I don't know. It all happened so fast. It was a blur.
