"From the standpoint of the invaded, this war was and is a brutal violation of the basic principle of international law in Art 2 of the UN Charter which strictly prohibits the threat and use of force in international relations. This war was and is a war of aggression and a crime against world peace. The US and its allies must bear responsibility for this crime."
