Everyone talks about these International Laws and treaties, but I was wondering, doesn't the ruling body that makes laws for it's citizens (in a free country) have to be approved (elected) by the citizens? And if not, do they not have the right to question the tyranny imposed upon them? I do not think that Iraq has ever agreed to these "laws" and I think they have a "right" to do whatever they wish to do, just like any other nation. The US can back out of treaties and International conventions (Prisoners of war in Cuba, Anti Ballistic Missle treaty, etc.) anytime they want, thus so can any other nation. Just because the US has more money than GOD is no reason to believe America is righteous in any way. The US has murdered more people than Iraq ever has, so maybe we should think about that before we let the US take over the entire world under the blanket of the true American religion--MONEY...

Iraq is a signatory to the nuclear non-proliferation treaty.

http://www.state.gov/www/global/arms/treaties/npt3.html

The ABM treaty has a clause allowing either signatory to give 6 months notice and withdraw. So we did.

http://www.fas.org/nuke/control/abmt/text/abm2.htm

Article XV:

1. This Treaty shall be of unlimited duration.

2. Each Party shall, in exercising its national sovereignty, have the right to withdraw from this Treaty if it decides that extraordinary events related to the subject matter of this Treaty have jeopardized its supreme interests. It shall give notice of its decision to the other Party six months prior to withdrawal from the Treaty. Such notice shall include a statement of the extraordinary events the notifying Party regards as having jeopardized its supreme interests.


As far as "Prisoners of War" in Cuba, we disagree that anything we have done is a violation of (I presume you mean) the Geneva Convention.
