A 'Crime of Aggression'...among other things...

Ah, yet more evidence of the mendacity of our current business and deep unease within the legal establishment. It is interesting that at some level even the government knew what it was doing was wrong and feared some kind of legal comeback in the ICC and had the lawyers prepped and ready.

The true weakness of the government's position on the Iraq war can be summed up in its refusual to publish the legal advice given to it prior to the war. Which then leads me to assume that while it backed the war in Iraq it was by no means definite backing and had many many caveats. As Lenin noted the establishment is not happy about what has happened and I think we will see further leaks and whispers before this is all over.
