>>A nation does not require the approval or consent of the United Nations to defend itself. Glad we agree on that.<<
That was not the question. And you still haven't answered it and it is plainly obvious that you never will.
>>Regarding my question relating to whether or not Clinton had UN backing or authority to act in Kosovo. The rather inane reference "Clinton's fault" is rather mystifying. Well 282RA he didn't because as in Rwanda he knew that the UN would not act and people were dying so he took the matter out of their hands and used the NATO military alliance - rather clever because that effectively removed the French, the Russians and the Chinese from the decision making process, in that their UNSC vetoes were of absolutely no use to them.<<
Translation: Clinton didn't go to the UN so Bush didn't have to either. Ergo, it's all Clinton's fault.
But don't fret. You'll have a new President Clinton to whine endlessly about in a few months.
As for the rest of your points, I didn't read them because I didn't read most of your original post to which I was replying. Sorry.
