For anyone else who may be following the thread, here is a link to UNSCR 1441
passed 8 November 2002. It states in part;
Recalling all its previous relevant resolutions, in particular its resolutions 661 (1990) of 6 August 1990, 678 (1990) of 29 November 1990, 686 (1991) of 2 March 1991, 687 (1991) of 3 April 1991, 688 (1991) of 5 April 1991, 707 (1991) of 15 August 1991, 715 (1991) of 11 October 1991, 986 (1995) of 14 April 1995, and 1284 (1999) of 17 December 1999, and all the relevant statements of its President,
Recalling also its resolution 1382 (2001) of 29 November 2001 and its intention to implement it fully,
Recognizing the threat Iraq’s non-compliance with Council resolutions and proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and long-range missiles poses to international peace and security,
Recalling that its resolution 678 (1990) authorized Member States to use all necessary means to uphold and implement its resolution 660 (1990) of 2 August 1990 and all relevant resolutions subsequent to resolution 660 (1990) and to restore international peace and security in the area,
Further recalling that its resolution 687 (1991) imposed obligations on Iraq as a necessary step for achievement of its stated objective of restoring international peace and security in the area
Please read the whole resolution. It lays out clearly that the authorization to use force passed in 1990 was still in effect.
Since the USA guarantees this (in bold above) and since we're all pressured by the USA ("you're either with us or against us"), then...
It has been proven that the US guarantees were wrong...as everyone but Britain suspected, but the USA never appologized for destroying a sovereign country and killing 500,000+ people...
