*******DON'T FORGET TO BOOKMARK THIS THREAD*******

* Unfortunately, this Stop the War thread is in followup to SI's Don't Start the War thread.

WHEREAS President Bush has forced war upon the Iraqi people;

AND WHEREAS America's sons and daughters who serve in the military are now placed in grave danger, they are ordered to fight an unnecessary, immoral and illegal war;

AND WHEREAS the very vast majority of the world's population and the very vast majority of world's leaders do not want this war, they, too, consider it illegal and have overwhelmingly demonstrated opposition;

AND WHEREAS the case to justify this war has not been made by the Bush Administration, and this war does not meet the doctrine of a just war;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that we call upon President Bush to bring our military sons and daughters home, that their courageous efforts be replaced with the full involvement of the United Nations (UN), that the UN establish permanent weapons inspectors and permanent peacekeepers into Iraq and that a long term and comprehensive policy of containment, not war, immediately take effect.

CONSIDERATIONS:

In 1946, the Nuremberg Tribunal rejected German arguments of the "necessity'' for pre-emptive attacks against its neighbours. "To initiate a war of aggression,'' said the tribunal's judgment, "is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.''
