I remain unconvinced.
I know JohnP. You're so pro this illeagal occupation that you could be G. W. Bush himself.
As to the UN sanction breaking, if that was true, then why was Scott Ritter so out-spoken and saying it's not true? He was the best quallified to say this and he did on a regular basis. If it was true, why didn't the US go back to the UN to get another resolution that would have made your (Bush) war leagal. I'll answer that one for you. The US knew that there was no evidence and therefore wouldn't have got the green light. Like Scott Ritter points out, the sanctions had done thier job by the end of the first gulf war, and the only purpose they were serving was to starve the population.
