The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws.

Ok so Colin Powell made the case. Now the question is will the UNSC decide to pass a resolution endorsing war or will we go without them. I really think that this is still up in the air. If the UNSC refuses and we go anyway then the UN is as dead as the League of Nations though it will probably take a few years for that to become obvious. I think in the interest of preserving their influence and power the other countries should agree, but from what they are saying I'm not sure they will. Germany has painted itself into a corner as has France. I don't know what the hell China will do. They may choose to treat this presentation like the proof they were waiting for and now it's morally ok to go to war, (a figleaf for their sudden agreement in the face of reality.) Or they may not.
