    And radical Islamists and states that support them are good for global stability?

    That's an emotional argument. Other than a fruitcake US Congressman talking about bombing Mecca, no government offical in the West has spoken of using strategic nuclear weapons in the war on radical Islam.

    The US has certainly played the diplomatic track and is letting regional powers be part of the solution on N. Korea and letting Europe take the lead on Iran so that good cop/bad cop or carrot/stick inducements can be used there. The US used diplomacy against Iraq, but I think it was relatively clear that France and Russia weren't interested in seriously enforcing UNSCRs against Iraq, even after 12 years of non-compliance.

    Exactly. Fruitcakes are everywhere wether it is US,India,Israel or Iran. North Korea is not Iraq ;it aint going to be easy, they have got Nuclear weapons. I dont know wether they have mated them though. France and Russia might have oil contracts there; if Iraq wasnt complying to the sanctions then why did it take US 10yrs to attack Iraq.

    I like the way US plans to take on IRAN, it is a very matured approach.
    My dad was a politician so have too much of that in my blood.

    If you want to believe that's the same thing, I can't stop you.
    "Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have."
    "The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'"

    In the case of Iraq one nation didn't call Iraq evil, primarily the U.S. and Britian called Iraq's regeime evil, and other nations agreed with little discussion. Italy, Spain, Poland, the Ukraine, Japan and others agreed while France, Germany and Russia disagreed. Russia is a very confused nation under Putin, Germany was in the middle of an election run up and France was simply France.

    Multilateral means more than one so just how many more nations do you want till it meets your criteria of multi lateral? I think your were simply looking for 100% support, thats a tall order for any war.

    True to an extent. but it would have been better if the security council approved it, as it was for enforcing the same security council laws US attacked Iraq.

    I'll decide. As will any clear-thinking adult on the planet.

    The past 100 years have clearly shown that there is a large group of nations who are governed by principles based on maximal freedoms and initiatives of their citizens, and a group of nations who are governed by principles based on oppression and power consolidation.

    I'll put a UK, U.S., and France in charge of a Sudan, Syria, and China any day of the week.

    Sure it would have been better, but with France, Germany, and Russia all bought off by Saddam, final explicit approval wasn't going to happen.
