The Iraqi war is illegal

Well, this is new. The president of Finland, Tarja Halonen, adressed the UN General Assembly last night in New York. In her speech, she critized the US for marching in to Iraq without getting a green light from the UN. Thus, the war is illegal. The remarkable thing here, in the eyes of a Finnish citizen, is that Finland takes a position on the issues of power nations. In my view, this rarely happens.
