A question for Kofi Annan: if the Iraq war was illegal because it did not have approval of the security council, what about Kosovo?

the kofmeister says "It is indeed tragic that diplomacy has failed, but there are times when the use of force may be legitimate in the pursuit of peace." (March 24, 1999)"

guess this wasnt one of those times, eh. ;)

guess not :)

I dont think "legal" or "illegal" is a useful concept when appplied to this war - I wish liberals would drop it as a criticism. What is legal, anyway? Who decides (apparently not the security council according to the kofmeister) when the use of force is legitemate in the pursuit of peace? Are we supposed to just stick with whatever Kofi Annan tells us?
