I am waiting for the transcript of the Senate Committee Armed Services hearings "To receive testimony on U.S. policy and military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan." so I can quote Wolfowitz.
Wolfowitz mentions a UN resolution as the excuse we will use to keep our troops in Iraq. Remember, the lie is that we are going to allow democracy. Now if most Iraqis want us out and we are supposed to hand over sovereignty, then how can we keep our troops there against the wishes of the Iraqi people. Simple, we use a UN resolution as an excuse. I don't see a Resolution that actually gives us this authority but then again the US claimed it has UN authority because of UN resolutions for the "no fly zones" and there was no UN resolution for that either.
