Response to What is it with you multilateralists?
.....if you hear your neighbour is upset with you and told his wife he wants to punch you in the mouth...but you, in a pre-emptive move, go over and shoot him dead, you're telling me that's self defense? Well, that's what President Bush did...bad intel, bad pre-emptive strike, illegal invasion and occupation, this was not a self-defense move by President Bush and the US.
.....As for the UN and NATO, both organizations are places to look when trying to sort things out internationally...the UN in particular, even despite its flaws. But gaining international support in a situation like this, I believe that's important...and if you don't, and if you believe you can just do as you please, then why would it matter what others, in my case, Canada...what would it matter what we think???...D'
