When something like this [2003 invasion of iraq] takes place, the international law professionals have a complicated task. There is a fringe that just tells the truth: look, it's a violation of international law. But most have to construct complex arguments to justify it as defense counsel. That's basically their job, defense counsel for state power.
The media is uncritical, and their so-called the concept of objectivity translates into keeping everything within the beltway. However, iraq was quite different. Here, there were flat-out lies, and they sort of knew it. They were desperately trying to make connections between saddam hussein and 9/11.
The united states of america is a threat to world peace. Because what [america] is saying is that if you are afraid of a veto in the security council, you can go outside and take action and violate the sovereignty of other countries. That is the message they are sending to the world. That must be condemned in the strongest terms.
I don't see any sign of god in this world, in the place where we live and things we know. It can all be explained to my mind perfectly satisfactorily without god. But in the great darkness beyond this little spark of light where i live, of course there may be all kinds of things. There may be a god. So i'm really an agnostic.
