The irony of war with Iraq

Our main excuse to attack Iraq is because it does not respect United Nations Security Council Resolution 1441 on disarmament. In a nutshell, one can say that force is now required to enforce the UN's will on the Middle East. However, the United States does not feel that it needs UN support in order to invade Iraq. So, essentially the US Military Forces are going to go into Iraq, against the UN's will, in order to make Iraq obey the UN. Does anybody else see the irony in this?

I was really sick yesterday, and I still haven't gotten over it today. My brother just built a new home (which is absolutely beautiful) in north Orem up in the foothills, and he needed help moving all of his stuff in. So, there I was, hefting boxes left and right with a fever, sore throat, and runny nose. It was a nightmare. I suppose I could have just told him I was sick, but I had offered my help on Sunday and I didn't want to back out at the last second when he was counting on my help. I went home and tried sleeping for the evening but people kept calling who wanted to move in to my condo at La Jolla (I just listed it yesterday afternoon). I literally got a call every 15 minutes. It was out of control. Finally, at about 11:00 pm I called Rachel because I was feeling like total crap and I needed someone to talk to. She decided to come over and bring me chicken noodle soup and medicine! What a sweetheart!!!
