46. ok, lets take a different approach....

Do you agree or disagree with Robert Jackson's comment about aggressive war? Remember, this was the basis for the findings at Nuremberg.

"To initiate a war of aggression, therefore, is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole."



Do you agree that the war against Iraq is a war of aggression? If you don't, how was Iraq a threat to the U.S.?


If the war against Iraq is a war of aggression, then it is "the supreme international crime" and its authorization was tantamount to U.S. conspiracy to commit a crime against humanity.

How is that not a betrayal of the U.S.?
