Pro to the question "Should the US Have Attacked Iraq?"
"The war can be seen as morally legitimate on grounds of basic human rights as embodied in the Universal Declaraction of Human Rights, which is the ethical basis for the international world order. This body of moral priciples was ignored by the United Nations Security Council in the case of the Iraqi people in favor of adherence to statutory international law."
