I agree with virtually everything you said in your last post.  My point is
that under the US Oikoumene, the US creates the Laws, creates the
interpretation, and enforces these.  I believe Colin was simply speaking to
this "legal" framework without necessarily speaking to its legitimacy in
moral or ethical terms.  Clearly, at least to me, it is immoral and
unethical, but the fact remains that "it" is the reality.  We are forced to
operate under the terms of the power brokers to avert the war, lift
sanctions, and work for peace.  Whilst we do this, we must also work to
challenge the narrative and create a world where the "will of the
international community" is not corrupted through coercion and bribery.

yours in solidarity,
