War: Attacking our neighbors
Posted by kallahar on Aug.30.02 at 01:54 pm PDT.

kallahar writes ABC News has a story about how the US is about to attack Iraq again. "Critics warn that the evidence the United States needs to attack the point of no return has not been clearly defined, and has no precedent. Would the United States wait to invade until there was proof Iraq had built a chemical, biological or nuclear weapon? Or would Bush send in troops as soon as Iraq had all the components?

"The standards for invasion now are pretty cut-and-dry: If you're attacked, you can respond," said Sean Murphy, a professor of international law at George Washington University, "But if you make anticipatory self-defense the standard, you open an enormous Pandora's Box."
