THE EXTRA UN RES WAS JUST FOR TONY AND COLIN:

Blair: Bush did not seek UN backing (Press Association, January 29 2010)

United Nations backing for the Iraq war would have made "life a lot easier", Tony Blair has said.

But the former prime minister said US President George Bush decided the UN Security Council's support "wasn't necessary". [...]

Despite continuing discussion over the threat posed by Iraq at the time, Mr Bush had decided the resolution was not needed. "His view was that it wasn't necessary but he was prepared to work with one," said Mr Blair.
