Discussions of the unlawfulness of the Iraqi invasion, the lawfulness of the International Community response, and the Iraqi arguments made against the military response are presented here. The key United Nations resolutions issued during the 1991 Gulf War - explained and reprinted here - formed the foundation on which the 2003 war against Iraq was justified.

Additional topics and coverage include:
Alternative enforcement mechanisms, legal issues, and considerations on the maintenance of peace and safety in the region
Reparations, war crimes trials, and permitted reprisals
Legal issues under the United States constitution
A postscript on controlling the scourge of war - toward a more peaceful future
A photo-journal of the author's attendance on the Freedom Flight documenting the destruction in the area and the warm welcome of the local citizens.
