If the U.N says so

An involuntary chuckle at the start of this Boston Globe article: “Senator John F. Kerry, questioned repeatedly last night about his position on the Iraq war….” Questioned repeatedly? Why? Isn’t it clear? Kerry would have done nothing, unless he did something, but only if it’s OK with the United Nations: “Kerry did not elaborate, though he said that if he had been president, he would have gone to war in Iraq if the UN supported the offensive.”

Therein lies my problem: what would President Kerry do if there was a threat and the United Nations did not give its imprimatur? Would he do nothing? Whatever his answer, you can bet it will sag with conditions, provisions, and equivocation.
