17. It made good propaganda.
But I don't think for a minute that Iraq's violations of UN resolutions were, or would be a moral justification for invading Iraq, if there weren't other good reasons for going in (and I'm not saying there were).

Now about 181. It doesn't justify Israel, didn't create Israel, and was quite likely little more than a smokescreen to cover the British abandonment of the Jews and the Palestinians. It is as irrelevant to a discussion of rights and wrongs as any other UN resolution. Is that clear enough for you?

Please people. Don't put words in my mouth just to score points. It's not fair; it's not honest, and it just makes you look bad in the end. And don't try to claim I'm being inconsistent unless you've got me on record saying two different things.
