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, Roger Stroope Austin College Sherman Texas, USA www.austincollege.edu _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
