5th Aniversery of the Iraq War

To repeat a statement being repeated (no doubt) ad nauseam across the Internet, to state that the invasion of Iraq in 2003 was illegal does not make it so. It has not been brought to a relevant body of law for clarification, or can it necessarily be clarified given that international law does possess the relevant bodies as state legal systems possess. There are legal arguments pro and contra apropos the legality.
These statements issued from the doubtful mouths of people like Baroness Tonge are to my mind related more to their nonsense on Israel’s “collective punishment”, “genocide” and “war crimes” and attacks on the legality of the current war against Islamist terrorism. These are statements of opinion, not established fact.
