The US government is using a new sales pitch for its latest UN resolution. The new line is that we’re going to war regardless, and this is the last chance for other countries to pretend that they support us. The Bush administration claims that this is the chance for the UN to prove its legitimacy, but the entire exercise has already proven that the UN is illegitimate. It’s clear that the US is operating outside the will of the rest of the world, and the UN has been utterly powerless to do anything about it. This ought to be my last post on whether we go to war or not, because I think that question has already been decided (not that it really matters, I doubt Dick Cheney subscribes to my RSS feed).
