Jeez, John, I was almost beginning to tolerate you

After his speech on Monday, which minimally gave him the "antiwar" label he so desperately needs and so obviously doesn't deserve, but which was still a small step in the right direction, John Kerry screwed up by opening his mouth again.
"If you don't have weapons of mass destruction, believe me, Saddam Hussein is a very different person," Kerry said. "That's what kept him in power. And I believe Saddam Hussein would not be in power. This president avoided approaching this in responsible ways, and it's a tragedy."
I guess if Bush is going to be delusional, Kerry has to out-delusional him. From the sources who were right about Iraq not having WMD before the war, the word is that all such weapons were probably destroyed by 1995. So Saddam stayed in power for eight years without the weapons Kerry says kept him in power.
Kerry did not directly answer a question about whether he agrees with U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan, who called the Iraq war illegal. "I don't know what the law or legalities are," Kerry said.
Great. You're running to become the most powerful person in the world, and you don't know what the rules are. Don't they teach these clowns ANYTHING at Yale?

Here it is, numbskull:
All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations.
--UN Charter, chapter 1, article 2, section 4. An international agreement to which the US is a party to, in fact a charter member of, making it therefore, by the US constitution, the highest law of the land.

So, dimwit, how did you get this far without knowing about the UN Charter and the Constitution which you have sworn several times to uphold?
