Michael: "as you probably know. Keeping land taken by conquest has been illegal at least since the creation of the UN" Mark: No it is not "illegal" as you put it. If it was then you would increase the possibility war. In Res. 242 for instance the word "inadmissible" was used, not "illegal" there was a reason for this careful selection of words. There must be a consequence to the aggressor(the country starting the won just to steal land or resources etc.). If the defender wins the war a takes land from the country that attacked it without cause, your logic would force the defender to give back the land it conquered defending itself. Thereby removing the consequence for starting a war. It would, in effect make it easier(reward the aggressor) to start a war because the aggressor country has nothing to lose. Even if they lose they get their land back, that's why it is not "illegal" to keep land conquered in war, that was why "inadmissible" was used in 242 not "illegal". Get it!
