2. IANAL but, sounds right to me.

4. I love this quote
from the Independent story:
<<Mr Blix demolished the argument advanced by Lord Goldsmith three days before the war began, which stated that resolution 1441 authorised the use of force because it revived earlier UN resolutions passed after the 1991 ceasefire.>>
