Ban said the situation in Iraq was a problem to be dealt with by the whole world and the United Nations would continue to make every effort on the humanitarian front.

Asked if he agreed with predecessor Kofi Annan that the Iraq war was illegal, he said it was important to "look to the future" and "not look back."

1. Not look back? Huh?
They oughta be investigating every element of this scam and bringing to justice every lying criminal that led us to blowing up an innocent country.

Yeah, it was "illegal."

2. Investigating the war's potential illegality IS looking to the future.
Making sure something like it never happens again. Once the precedent is set, the precedent is set. Countries from now on can always plead that if the US could do it, so can they.

3. So that means UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is a scumbag criminal
and should be prosecuted and executed.
