"International lawyers and activists converged at a conference titled The Iraq Commission, in Brussels, Belgium, April 16 and 17, with the primary aim of bringing to justice government officials who are guilty of war crimes in Iraq."

"The conference represents the most powerful and most current organized attempt in the world to bring justice to those responsible for the catastrophe in Iraq, and included powerful international lawyers like International Court of Justice lawyer Curtis Doebbler and Louie Roberto Zamora Bolanos, a lawyer from Costa Rica who successfully sued the government of his country for supporting the war in Iraq.

Their goal for the conference was to begin taking concrete steps toward international lawsuits that will bring former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair and former US President George W. Bush, along with those responsible in their administrations, to justice for the myriad war crimes committed in Iraq.

“I was very misinformed and uninformed about the goals of our mission, about who our enemy was and about the danger that we posed to civilians,” Caputi said of the context for his actions. “My command told us that all civilians had left Fallujah and that the only people who remained in the city were combatants. This was not true, though. The Red Cross estimated that up to 50,000 civilians remained trapped in the city. But nobody in my unit knew that.” "

Tony BLiar is a fkn War Criminal of The 1st Order !!! The Neoliberal b-s'ing Neocon s-o-b can't even walk anywhere in the streets of Britain without serious and a very real risk of a 'Citizen's Arrest' !! I will forego future Karma to curse his hideous soul to eternal damnation in this life and any others he has to come !

George 'Dubya' Bush too deserves all the opprobrium that people can muster and his new Presedential Lie-bury in Texass fools no one either. That these bastards are still free is an indictment of Democracy !

War Criminal - ''Tony Blair Rejects 'Bizarre' Claims that Invasion of Iraq Caused the Crisis'', by Tracy McVeigh and Mark Townsend :

"The civil war in Syria with its attendant disintegration is having its predictable and malign effect. Iraq is now in mortal danger. The whole of the Middle East is under threat." said Tony BLiar. Hmmm & see ...

How about due justice for Iraquis?

How about Bush, Blair and their ilk tried for murder?

Sounds beautiful to me. Finally.

Doesn't it to you... Mr. Poetic Justice?

Ya know...you asked me not to bother you once, and I didn't. Yet you keep answering my posts.

Be good, and do me the same favour, okay?

Don't bother me.
