Annan says U.S. will violate charter if it acts without approval

Secretary General Kofi Annan warned today that if the United States fails to win approval from the Security Council for an attack on Iraq, Washington’s decision to act alone or outside the Council would violate the United Nations charter.

So if Bush does attack Iraq without U.N. approval, then that makes him, quite literally, a war criminal.
