Dear list SCR 1441 does not authorise war: another SCR would be necessary for war See the CND website http://www.cnduk.org/ See the text of the legal opinion given to CND http://www.cnduk.org/briefing/opinion.htm It states this brilliantly clearly, pointing to reassurances given at the time by the US and UK, and showing that 1441 AND the existing body of SCRs AND the UN Charter AND customary international law do not provide the basis for use of force against Iraq without a further SCR. THis is particularly relevant for Nathaniel's work.
