Con to the question "Should the US Have Attacked Iraq?"
"I think [the Iraq war] was a mistake. This is a blow struck at international law, at the United Nations, at relations and alliance and partnership between the United States and other countries. And, of course, public opinion was ignored. Unilateral action, on the part of any country, and even a country like the United States, the most powerful country, is just not enough for security. In a global world, where all problems -- terrorism, the environment and all the other problems effect all of us -- security can only be common security, universal security."
