  •  Let's be honest with the Security Council (0+ / 0-)

    it's utterly broken and was not really my point. America made a case (one made of lies and thin air), Russia did not.  And I don't ever remember the US or the media threatening nuclear war if it didn't get it's way like some very visible Russian media has recently.

      If knowledge is power and power corrupts, does that mean that knowledge corrupts?

    •  And sure, Bush went through some motions (0+ / 0-)

      That's far, far from getting the blessing of the international community. Not even the same ball park.

      •  we'll disagree there as I don't remember (0+ / 0-)

        much in the way of protests against Bush's actions. I definitely do not remember sanctions or threats of sanctions.

        •  Not much protest? (3+ / 0-)

          There were massive protests world wide.

          Some of our closest allies, France, was vehemently against it.

          And again, what you said was that it had the blessing of the international community. It most certainly did not.

          There were no sanctions, no. If the international community had any consistency there would have been. But because the US is the most powerful country in the world there were not. For the same reason there are only token sanctions on Russia.
