Bush, Blair found guilty of war crimes in Malaysia tribunal Posted by Laura Tyco ⋅ November 22, 2011


Former US president George Bush and his former counterpart Tony Blair were found guilty of war crimes by the The Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal which held a four day hearing in the Malaysia.

The five panel tribunal unanimously decided that Bush and Blair committed genocide and crimes against peace and humanity when they invaded Iraq in 2003 in blatant violation of international law.

The judges ruled that war against Iraq by both the former heads of states was a flagrant abuse of law, act of aggression which amounted to a mass murder of the Iraqi people.

In their verdict, the judges said that the United States, under the leadership of Bush, forged documents to claim that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.

They further said the findings of the tribunal be made available to members of the Rome Statute and the names of Bush and Blair be entered into a war crimes register.

Both Bush and Blair repeatedly said the so-called war against terror was targeted at terrorists.

Lawyers and human rights activists present here say the verdict by the tribunal is a landmark decision. And the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Foundation said it would lobby the International Criminal Court to charge former US president George Bush and Former British prime minister Tony Blair for war crimes.



Read the Rules

Bush and Blair should be on trial at The Hague, World Court for their crimes against humanity.

Good question. Maybe when they go to prison - - and in reducing the time in it, they may speak out and tell the court their accomplices... let's hope the international court will get them this time because back in 1996, G. Bush got away with the war crime verdict issued by the International court. I personally saw the verdict (a pdf file) from http://bushcommission.org and lately that site had been removed and I am still looking for the file on the net. I found part of it at: http://beirut.indymedia.org/ar/2006/09/5646.shtml http://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2006/09/bush_war_crimes/ (you might want to copy and paste any content as the sites above may be removed again - - I tried the final verdict links and they were not accessible.). Anyway, thanks for your comment.

And let's assume that some rather important and powerful folks are following your post here (say the CIA or the FBI or Nancy P. or Harry R.)and when G. Bush starts to name accomplices, your name suddenly appears on the list......you still think this is the best way to go winwin.

PS - I really didn't mean go, what I mean was GO.

And you would stand up, support to the death our Constitution, wouldn't you. All those freedom of speech, assembly, etc etc.

Yet you would find guilty and condemn a fellow citizen in a foreign court even though you did not extend him the right-requirement to be present or to be represented by counsel??

Even Wikipedia would get this one correct. Goggle one word - HYPOCRITE.

President (change) Obama has assassinated American citizens without due process by ordering drone strikes on them.

I agree with you are saying. I can only hope this brings about talks about having an internationally sanctioned court bring up charges for what has been done.

Yes, him and Cheney are American. But the reality is that both should be brought up on criminal charges. Why should our leaders differ than any other leader out there?

Why should big bankers?? they are leaders (financial) Why should the governors?? they are leaders (state) Why should the school board?? they are leaders (local) Why should YOU? d i f f e r

You may think you are drawing a line in the sand, but sooner or later that line will wash away and another one will be drawn. See you in Kuala Lumpur. What's good for the goose must surely be good for the gander.

I don't understand what you are trying to say here. Rather confusing.

Are you asking if anyone else should be treated differently if in the same situation. My answer, of course not. We need laws (and a governmental body) that will be upheld regardless of who you are.

We should not be allowed to pick and choose which laws pertain to who.

[-] 0 points by ronjj (-241) 12 years ago

No, what I am trying to say is that all attention seems to be "some kind of justice" through any means including an internationally sanctioned court.
I merely asked if you, as an individual, would subject yourself to the same justice system as you are calling for a fellow citizen to be put into regardless of what level of leadership you may or may not hold.

[-] 1 points by JonValle (133) 12 years ago

If my crimes were against the international community, then yes.

I'm not saying said parties are guilty or not. If the international community feel that their concerns are founded to the point that they should be brought to an international court, I feel that they should be allowed to.

What I do not agree with is any country saying "Hey, you're a war criminal according to our courts, therefore we're going to get you and prosecute you, even though you aren't an American."I think any crime that an outside citizen does to any country should be brought to a international court.

Who gives a shit? Who cares if the UN didn't pass a final resolution either. In America we are bound my our laws, not those of any other country. Our Congress and President approved it period. Both parties in fact.

Um yes but they can only create resolutions or laws for within US borders only. Not any other sovereign state. If Australia decided that the US should not have nuclear weapons does that give them the right to invade? Fuck no! The US has no right to police anything outside its own borders period.

On that i agree.
