    Regime change is no basis for war

    The Independent has this analysis of the attorney general's advice on invading Iraq:

    GOLDSMITH MEETS THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION "I have also had the opportunity to hear the views of the US administration ... They maintain that the fact of whether Iraq is in breach is a matter of objective fact which may therefore be assessed by individual member states." ANALYSIS This sheds some light on the mysterious visit by Lord Goldsmith to see the Bush administration in February 2003. It hints that Washington strongly tried to persuade a sceptical Attorney General that war without further UN backing would be legal.
    According to the Bush regime, torture and abuse are also "legal" and necessary" in the so called "post 9/11 world", so an American view on the legality of invading Iraq was hardly a balanced one, or indeed a true legal opinion. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
