Blair and Bush facing mock ‘trial’

Malaysian activists are to stage a symbolic trial against ex-prime minister Tony Blair for committing war crimes

Malaysian-led activists plan to hold a symbolic trial this month against former prime minister Tony Blair and former US president George W Bush on charges of committing crimes against peace in the Iraq war.

The Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal is an initiative of Malaysia’s retired prime minister Mahathir Mohamad, who staunchly opposed the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.

Malaysian lawyer Yaacob Hussain Marican said the tribunal will convene a four-day hearing starting on Saturday to determine whether Mr Bush and Mr Blair committed crimes against peace and violated international law in the Iraq invasion.

Mr Yaacob said the effort is modelled on a 1967 Vietnam war crimes panel convened by philosophers Bertrand Russell and Jean-Paul Sartre.

    Has anyone ever thought about us just making Mexico the 51st state? It would be lot easier. You think the war in Iraq is costing US too much? Read on..

    Boy, was I confused. I have been hammered with the propaganda that it is the Iraq war on terror that is bankrupting us. I now find that to be RIDICULOUS.

      People say “Political puppets dance to their One World Government’s tune”, and I wonder why??

      :roll: So these corrupt morons found Bush guilty, what about the Legislative branch? As you know, America has three equal branches. If one branch is guilty, then the others ARE just as guilty.

      :roll: American people have been questioning their 535 congressmen and congresswomen who are the ones who wrote and approved the manual on how to treat prisoners or 911 terrorists.

      The Democrat Party has controlled both houses more often than the Republican Party – They are the upper house (the Senate) and the lower house (the House of Representatives, such as Rep. Ron Paul).

      :roll: This is also the same manual President Bushes’ successors have used for decades. Why did these bogus (political motivated) charges exclude for the following reasons:

      1. General Colin Powell who convinced the United Nations (UN) to agree with the U.S. plan, and Prez Bush got permission from the UN.

      2. Condoleezza Rice, the Secretary of State, why wasn’t she part of the trial? I don’t think she is guilty, but General Colin Powell and Ms. Rice are part of the administration.

      3. General Powell and Condoleezza Rice advised president Bush on what to do, because the president relied on their expertise.

      4. Why did they exclude the 535 Senators and Congressmen who authorized the manual and why didn’t they do something when they saw at a problem? I’m not saying they are guilty of anything, but you just can’t convict a couple and ignore the rest. Who are the ones that ran and/or influenced the trial?

      5. After all the attack of 911 with the death of 3,500 innocent citizens and collapse of the U.S. economy Bush or the president of any country has the right to retaliate.


      – In the Eutimes article: “EU rejects French call for intervention in Syria”.
      – In the Eutimes article: “Obama Administration: Israel Has “Right” to Nukes”.
      – OR recently, Turkey’s Prime minister has demanded that NATO use military intervention in Syria, without going through the United Nations (UN).

      :roll: So EVERY country has the right to nuke everyone else, and President George Bush does NOT have the right to retaliate? Isn’t that a double standard?

      Perhaps “Political puppets dance to their One World Government’s tune.” ????
