Well I did not get voted up or down, so thought I would add a bit more detail, to my post.
I wrote "There is another universal language, it is the language of 'logic'"
I consider the language of 'logic' to be boolean algebra.

According to Wikipedia, the first Gulf war ended on 28 February 1991.
I remember reading at the time, when the allied forces had reached the Iraqi borders, that both Generals Schwarzkopf and De la Billiere wanted to carry on to Baghdad, capture Saddam and have him tried as a war criminal, they were ordered not to by Colin Powell, I do not think Powell was running things, but was acting under orders from Bush the elder.
I find it hard to imagine, that an American President would not want international rule of law, sadly, the only explanation that makes any sense to me is, George Bush the elder, was told to end it there, by a cabal in the shadows, who did not want international law, and did not believe all men are cousins (whether they want to be or not) these people have far more power than is democratically realised.
How else can we explain the 12 years after, when the west tortured the Iraqi people by denying them international justice.
