This video from Parliament in London, England says about itself:
Nick Clegg during the PMQ’s on 21st July  whilst standing in for David Cameron … calls the Iraq War Illegal…. Well done Nick for saying what many of us think.
George W Bush and Tony Blair starting the Iraq war in 2003 was illegal; as most people in the world think, including the Deputy Prime Minister in the British David Cameron administration, Nick Clegg.

David Cameron has been warned that UK air strikes against Isis in Syria could be illegal under international law.
Officials in the House of Commons Library have cast doubt on the Prime Minister’s view that Isis targets could be bombed in Syria as well as Iraq on the grounds that the Assad regime in Syria is “illegitimate.”
In a briefing paper for MPs, officials said: “Action in Syria will be difficult to justify legally without a request for assistance from the Assad government, and it is unlikely that the West could be seen to be responding to such a request.
“The British Government has said that any action in Syria will comply with international law, and the most likely way to achieve this would be to claim that military action is for humanitarian purposes, using the Responsibility to Protect doctrine. This remains controversial, however, without a United Nations Security Council resolution to authorise it.” …
Downing Street said the Prime Minister’s view had not changed since his previous comments. It denied that a decision on military action had been delayed until after Thursday’s referendum in Scotland to avoid alienating voters who opposed the 2003 Iraq war. …
The Commons Library report warns: “Given that the full-scale invasion and occupation for several years from 2003 onwards struggled to pacify Iraq, air strikes alone are not likely to succeed. Isis controls large amounts of territory, population and natural resources and is consequently far better funded than the Sunni resistance which so troubled US forces after the 2003 invasion.
“What is more, air strikes are likely to result in civilian casualties as Isis forces hide among the civilian population. This is conceivably their aim – to provoke the West into military action which hurts Muslim civilians, thus supporting their narrative of the West’s ‘war on Islam’.”

Chelsea E Manning writes from Fort Leavenworth jail in the USA:
How to make Isis fall on its own sword
Degrade and destroy? The west should try to disrupt the canny militants into self-destruction, because bombs will only backfire
Reblogged this on Arlin Report and commented:
Airstrikes may be illegal? So, are beheadings!
Indeed. Beheadings are illegal. Whether by ISIS. Or by the Saudi government:
Or by Ukrainian government armed forces:
Or by the ‘moderate’ Free Syrian Army: doing beheading themselves:
or selling hostage journalists to ISIS for beheading:
