    Well, he hasn't been exactly out front in the denouncing of the war, but I'll take whatever help we can get. Kofi Annan's statements to the BBC are well worth the time to read them.

    Striking another blow for the idea of the "rule of law", George?

    LOL, yes, but to give credit where it is due, I think it was those commies who drew up the US constitution who inspired all of this seditious talk. ;)

    I think the timing of this is interesting, coming as it does days before the publishing of the final report of the Iraq Survey Group, which is expected to say that not a shread of evidence of the much-hyped stockpiles of WMD, or even any production programs, has been found.

    Practically everything Colin Powell said in such emphatic tones to the UN in February 2003 turns out (as many of us suspected) to be utter ****, propaganda in the crudest form as an attempt to justify an illegal military invasion.

    Hurray for the new world order - you're either with us or you're in the target zone.

    The rule of international law, anyway -- which as we all know, counts for nothing when it isn't serving US interests.

    I saw that article, IJ. I'm going to use that in the project I'm working on.
