That is how they have been operating from the start. Against international law. There was one hiccup in the plan, however.

The UN resolutions were punishments to Turkey for not following the line exactly as it was laid out. Otherwise the USA and UK would have never gone along with it in the UN. If the first invasion was the "expected" reaction to the Greek coup (whose planning was well-known to insiders) then the second invasion was a surprise. And that's why the resolutions went through in the UN. If they had thought this through they should have, one, never used the UN to inflict this punishment, or two, supported the UN resolutions and shown that time does not absolve crimes.
