Good thing he's a philosophy professor

University of Rochester philosophy prof. Robert Holmes, during a panel discussion titled "Is Hindsight 20/20: Reflections on the Iraq War":

"We are in violation of international law in the actions that we are taking," Holmes said. "In having attacked Iraq and overthrown its government, we have committed the same violations of the U.N. Charter for which we killed many Nazis."

Umm, doesn't the esteemed prof. know the Nazis were already defeated before the United Nations Charter even came into existence?

Yeah well the Nazis certainly had it coming, after they bombed Pearl Harbor and all.
