Con to the question "Should the US Have Attacked Iraq?"
"The United States has no right, however, to invade another state because of speculative concerns about that state's possible future actions. The current international order does not support a special status for the United States or a singular right to exempt itself from the law. To maintain a legal order that restrains other states and to uphold the rule of law, the United States should continue its conservative commitment to limits on the unilateral use of force, and reject a reckless doctrine of preemptive self-defense."
"The Myth of Preemptive Self-Defense," The American Society of International Law, Aug. 2002
