Where are the weapons of mass destruction?
The real question might be, "Were there ever any"? Not a single
confirmed finding has been made of weapons of mass destruction,
chemical, biological, or nuclear, the supposed existence of which
was the formal, casus belli and, as the heart of UN resolution 1441,
the sole legal justification for the war. . . .
Colin Powell presented questionable material to the UN Security
Council in February. Spy satellite images of a "weapons site" before
and after a UN inspectors' visit were taken weeks apart. And the US
now admits that intelligence material "proving" Iraq acquired
fissile material from Africa was forged by a Western intelligence
agency, possibly MI6 or Mossad.
["To initiate a war of aggression, therefore, is not only an
international crime, it is the supreme international crime differing
only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the
accumulated evil of the whole." -- International Military Tribunal
at Nuremberg, 1946]
["All Members shall refrain in their international relations from
the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or
political independence of any state..." -- U.N. Charter, Chapter I,
