    That's all it takes, really...pressure and time.

    •  Arguments that annexation has occured in the past (0+ / 0-)

      so it's legit now totally ignored the big changes that have occurred in the international system, especially after 1945 and the establishment of the UN.  Norms of proper behavior, international laws, and practices have changed; the international system is not as it was even 150 years ago.

      Sorry, but there is no basis in this day and age to argue that colonizing and/or annexing land taken by force is in any way, shape, or form acceptable or legal.

      Perhaps there is some heavy cognitive dissonance at work here, Flyswatterbanjo
