hopefully Blair heeds

"Tony Blair last night faced fresh pressure to abandon the threat of war against Iraq when 16 eminent academic lawyers warned him that the White House doctrine of 'pre-emptive self-defence' has no justification under international law.

Not only do all the UN security council's existing resolutions on Iraq - including 1441 passed unanimously in November to enforce disarmament on Saddam Hussein - fail to provide such authority, there are currently no grounds for passing a new one to give the 'clearly expressed assent' to a war that Mr Blair still seeks, the lawyers declare." - from The Guardian
