Aha. Johannes beat me to it. Anyway. A report issued by the New York-based
Center for Economic and Social Right cited a range of authoritative legal
sources to dismiss the case for the legality of war against Iraq. Professor
Thomas Franck said the aggression "makes a complete mockery of the entire
system" of international law. Specifically, CESR Executive Director Roger
Normand said "It is the height of hypocrisy for the U.S. and U.K. to base
war on Resolution 1441 when they are fully aware that France, Russia and
China approved that resolution on explicit written condition that it could
not be used by individual states to justify military action. This war
violates every legal principle governing the resort to force. It clearly has
little to do with disarmament, democracy, human rights, or even Saddam
Hussein, and everything to do with oil and power."
