Jack Straw

"But Britain went to war in Iraq, as a last resort, because Saddam Hussein was still defying the international community after 12 years of discussion and 17 UN resolutions."

Jack Straw said this yesterday, a line that no doubt originated on this side of the pond. How come these guys always pull out the UN quotes when they serve them? If defying UN resolutions is an international crime that can get your country invaded, then when do we attack Israel? Every time a politician says something like this any self respecting journalist should jump all over them for hypocrisy.
