Is invasion to iraq in the name of terrorism justified

Yes

The invasion of Iraq was legal Greg Hunt. "Yes, this war is legal". The Age (Aus). March 19 2003 - "There are three requirements if Security Council members the United States, Britain and Spain are to lead an international coalition to enforce the council's resolutions on Iraq. First, there must be a clear and unequivocal duty on Iraq to comply with council resolutions. Second, there must be a clear and unequivocal breach of that duty. Third, there must be a legitimate and continuing authority for enforcing those actions. All are present."





No

The Iraq War will be illegal after UN authorizations expire on January 1, 2009 The UN has authorized the continued presence of coalition forces in Iraq. But, if it lets its current authorization expire on January 1, 2009 - as it is scheduled to - than it will have fully lost authorization and international legal legitimacy in Iraq, and should leave.
