Israeli PM Olmert hits back at Europe: "'Where do they get the right to preach to Israel?' he was quoted as saying in an interview published by Welt Am Sonntag. 'European countries attacked Kosovo and killed 10,000 civilians. Ten thousand and none of those countries had to suffer from a single rocket before that.'"

10,000 is a higher figure than I can recall seeing previously, but the point is valid. The US and the Western power through the barbaric Kosovo attack significantly damaged if not destroyed international law. Consequences must follow. It will be a long and hard road to rebuild international law. Bush and Blair might be compared to Mussolini. With his invasion of Ethiopia the League of Nations was virtually destroyed and 'rule of the jungle' came back in.
