War & Law quiz for presidential candidates
Braun, Edwards, Kerry, Kucinich, Sharpton split on legality of war acts. (A news report by the War and Law League, followed by the full text of candidates' statements.)

Congress's resolution for war in Iraq was based on White House falsehoods
Official misstatements on weapons and terrorism frightened lawmakers into approving a resolution of dubious constitutionality for a preplanned aggression that trampled on U.S. treaties. Similar wars are on the way. Will Congress be fooled again?

Why are hospitals bombed?
U.S. indifference toward international law has resulted in blasted hospitals and patient victims in three countries since 1991. Physicians protest the attacks. Hospital staffs in Iraq wage a losing struggle to cope with a high toll of civilian casualties.

The War and Law League sought for half a year to get the United Nations to prevent an attack on Iraq. One tool was this proposed resolution (in two versions: for the Security Council and for the General Assembly). Eleven of the fifteen Security Council members refused to support the aggression--carried out in March-April 2003--but no resolution against it has yet been introduced in the UN.

A PETITION TO TELL CONGRESS, "Affirm the rule of law! To attack Iraq is a crime."
This petition was circulated from July to October 2002. It was endorsed by the Fellowship of Reconciliation; Gray Panthers; Global Exchange; Voices in the Wilderness; Physicians for Social Responsibility; Veterans for Peace; the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, U.S. Section; and others.

U.S. attacked Afghan weddings several times; Bush's war is a tragedy of errors & violations of law

ABM Treaty still lives, say congressmen who sue to undo its 'unconstitutional' knifing by Bush without OK of Congress

Bush must not scrap treaties without lawful authority.
This was an issue that occupied the War and Law League in winter-spring of 2002.
