Chapter 6, 7, 8 of the UN Charter, Resolutions, World Bank etc...
CHAPTER VI: PACIFIC SETTLEMENT OF DISPUTES
The parties to any dispute, the continuance of which is likely to endanger the maintenance of international peace and security, shall, first of all, seek a solution by negotiation, enquiry, mediation, conciliation, arbitration, judicial settlement, resort to regional agencies or arrangements, or other peaceful means of their own choice.
The Security Council shall, when it deems necessary, call upon the parties to settle their dispute by such means.
The Security Council may investigate any dispute, or any situation which might lead to international friction or give rise to a dispute, in order to determine whether the continuance of the dispute or situation is likely to endanger the maintenance of international peace and security.
Any Member of the United Nations may bring any dispute, or any situation of the nature referred to in Article 34, to the attention of the Security Council or of the General Assembly.
A state which is not a Member of the United Nations may bring to the attention of the Security Council or of the General Assembly any dispute to which it is a party if it accepts in advance, for the purposes of the dispute, the obligations of pacific settlement provided in the present Charter.
The proceedings of the General Assembly in respect of matters brought to its attention under this Article will be subject to the provisions of Articles 11 and 12.
The Security Council may, at any stage of a dispute of the nature referred to in Article 33 or of a situation of like nature, recommend appropriate procedures or methods of adjustment.
The Security Council should take into consideration any procedures for the settlement of the dispute which have already been adopted by the parties.
In making recommendations under this Article the Security Council should also take into consideration that legal disputes should as a general rule be referred by the parties to the International Court of Justice in accordance with the provisions of the Statute of the Court.
Should the parties to a dispute of the nature referred to in Article 33 fail to settle it by the means indicated in that Article, they shall refer it to the Security Council.
If the Security Council deems that the continuance of the dispute is in fact likely to endanger the maintenance of international peace and security, it shall decide whether to take action under Article 36 or to recommend such terms of settlement as it may consider appropriate.
Without prejudice to the provisions of Articles 33 to 37, the Security Council may, if all the parties to any dispute so request, make recommendations to the parties with a view to a pacific settlement of the dispute.
CHAPTER VII: ACTION WITH RESPECT TO THREATS TO THE PEACE, BREACHES OF THE PEACE, AND ACTS OF AGGRESSION
The Security Council shall determine the existence of any threat to the peace, breach of the peace, or act of aggression and shall make recommendations, or decide what measures shall be taken in accordance with Articles 41 and 42, to maintain or restore international peace and security.
In order to prevent an aggravation of the situation, the Security Council may, before making the recommendations or deciding upon the measures provided for in Article 39, call upon the parties concerned to comply with such provisional measures as it deems necessary or desirable.
Such provisional measures shall be without prejudice to the rights, claims, or position of the parties concerned. The Security Council shall duly take account of failure to comply with such provisional measures.
The Security Council may decide what measures not involving the use of armed force are to be employed to give effect to its decisions, and it may call upon the Members of the United Nations to apply such measures. These may include complete or partial interruption of economic relations and of rail, sea, air, postal, telegraphic, radio, and other means of communication, and the severance of diplomatic relations.
Should the Security Council consider that measures provided for in Article 41 would be inadequate or have proved to be inadequate, it may take such action by air, sea, or land forces as may be necessary to maintain or restore international peace and security. Such action may include demonstrations, blockade, and other operations by air, sea, or land forces of Members of the United Nations.
All Members of the United Nations, in order to contribute to the maintenance of international peace and security, undertake to make available to the Security Council, on its call and in accordance with a special agreement or agreements, armed forces, assistance, and facilities, including rights of passage, necessary for the purpose of maintaining international peace and security.
Such agreement or agreements shall govern the numbers and types of forces, their degree of readiness and general location, and the nature of the facilities and assistance to be provided.
The agreement or agreements shall be negotiated as soon as possible on the initiative of the Security Council. They shall be concluded between the Security Council and Members or between the Security Council and groups of Members and shall be subject to ratification by the signatory states in accordance with their respective constitutional processes.
When the Security Council has decided to use force it shall, before calling upon a Member not represented on it to provide armed forces in fulfilment of the obligations assumed under Article 43, invite that Member, if the Member so desires, to participate in the decisions of the Security Council concerning the employment of contingents of that Member's armed forces.

The Security Council Committee established pursuant to resolution 1518 (2003) was established on 24 November 2003 as the successor body to the Security Council Committee established pursuant to resolution 661 (1990) concerning Iraq and Kuwait.
The Committee was established to continue to identify senior officials of the former Iraqi regime and their immediate family members, including entities owned or controlled by them or by persons acting on their behalf, who are subject to the measures imposed by paragraph 23 of resolution 1483 (2003). To that end, the Committee updates the lists of individuals and entities that have already been identified by the Committee established pursuant to resolution 661 (1990).
In resolution 1518 (2003), the Security Council also decided that the mandate of the Committee would be kept under review, and that the Council would consider authorizing the Committee to undertake the additional task of observing Member States’ fulfillment of their obligations in connection with the arms embargo on Iraq as reaffirmed in paragraph 10 of resolution 1483 (2003).

SECURITY COUNCIL COMMITTEE ESTABLISHED PURSUANT TO RESOLUTION 1518 (2003)
9 June 2006
Letter dated 9 June 2006 from the Permanent Representative of Iraq to the United Nations addressed to the President of the Security Council
I have the honour to enclose herewith a letter from Hoshyar Zebari, Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Iraq, regarding the Security Council review of the mandate of the multinational force and the arrangements for the Development Fund for Iraq and the International Advisory and Monitoring Board (see annex).
I would appreciate it if the present letter and its annex could be circulated as a document of the Security Council.
I am also aware that the time is ripe for a review of the mandate of the Development Fund for Iraq and the International Advisory and Monitoring Board. The Government of Iraq notes the important role played by the Fund and the board in ensuring and demonstrating that the oil resources of Iraq are being used transparently for the benefit of the Iraqi people. We recognize that the Fund and the Board play a meaningful role in confirming for donors and creditors that Iraq is managing its resources and debts responsibly to the best benefit of the Iraqi people. To that end, the Government of Iraq welcomes the continuation of the current arrangements for the Fund and the Board as extended by the Security Council in resolution 1637 (2005).
(Signed) Hoshyar Zebari Minister for Foreign Affairs
*** STILL cannot locate anything saying they MUST RV prior to the removal of Chapter 7. However, my husband said he has seen the document as well and that it was removed from the UN website. He thinks it was removed because it gives us rock solid proof of when the RV will happen and they realized it would give us a heads up and so they removed it from the UN site...

Thanks Red... Ten years to get there affairs in order... And they still have not done so... Why?... When one thinks about it the reality of it makes no sense whatsoever... This is why I believe the Almighty was in control of this whole affair all along... This chaos, deception, and confusion was allowed to be done for a reason... The importance of this event taking place cannot be over emphasized... Once it is allowed to happen, this will be a catalyst for a timeline which we will have until the process of a dramatic change takes place in our world... The final stage of bringing down the "old order" and putting in its place the "New World Order." Bush 41 spoke about it quite often in his speeches during his tenure as president... Many of them are on YouTube... He was pretty bold about it, and his predecessor Clinton toned it down because people began to ask questions...
When this age is over Red, and all things, good and evil are revealed, people will be shocked to what was really going on... That which the majority of the public was not privy to... But once Jesus does return, the forces of evil will be revealed.. Including those who were in league with them.. Those who we admired and respected... Then will people truly come to the realization that these people were granted power, and money for a price.. And most people were used, and told their roles were for one reason, when the reality of it was quite different...
It is Satan's world... And will be so until Jesus Christ returns... Wise as the serpent, yet gentle as doves...
