"armed attack" against Iraq and thus triggered Iraq's "inherent
right" of individual and collective self-defense under U.N. Charter
article 51. Not surprisingly, no U.N. Member State came to the defense
of Iraq. Rather, Iraq became the first victim of this Nazi Doctrine of
Preventive Warfare propounded by Bush Jr. and Tony Blair. From the
perspective of international legal history, it is Bush Jr. and Blair who
constitute the real "axis-of-evil"- along the lines of Hitler and
Mussolini. In this regard, Article 6 of the 1945 Nuremberg Charter
provides in relevant part as follows: . . . . The following acts, or any
of them, are crimes coming within the jurisdiction of the Tribunal for
which there shall be individual responsibility: (1) Crimes against
peace: namely, planning, preparation, initiation or waging of a war of
aggression, or a war in violation of international treaties, agreements
or assurances, or participation in a common plan or conspiracy for the
accomplishment of any of the foregoing; . . . . Leaders, organizers,
instigators and accomplices participating in the formulation or
execution of a common plan or conspiracy to commit any of the foregoing
crimes are responsible for all acts performed by any persons in
execution of such plan.
