Response to It's not self defense when you initiate the attack..
Taking out Spain leaves 48, but they were on board at the start. How is 18 out of 26 in NATO not international support?
If my neighbor punched me in the mouth almost daily(shoot at allied aircraft), if my neighbor without warning killed the neighbor on the other side(invade Kuwait) and attempted to kill yet another neighbor (ballistic missiles shot at Israel), gave sanctuary to friends of his that had killed relatives of mine (Abu Nidal) and increasingly was seen to have contact with still others that have pledged to kill me and my family and had shown the ability to do so; yes, I would consider it self defense if I shot the SOB first.
You still ignore the fact 1441 called for consequences for non-compliance. There is legal cover in that. We did not act without legal grounds and we did not act without international support.
