Is this country’s foreign policy renegade? Does it disobey Article 2.3 & 2.4 of the United Nations Organisation Charter:
All Members shall settle their international disputes by peaceful means in such a manner that international peace and security and justice are not endangered.
All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations.
Is it barbaric to to send its often ill-trained and ill-equipped young soldiers to be killed and to kill civilians in other countries?
C3000 enhances the statement made by MP John McDonnell in the recent Commons debate:
“The most civilised form of defence is actually securing peace and preventing conflict.”
