War Crimes Tribunal Tries Bush, Blair

The tribunal will determine whether the former US president and British prime minister committed war crimes and violated international law during the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq.

The Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal is an initiative by Malaysia's former Premier Mahathir Mohamad, who staunchly opposes US-led military adventures in various troubled regions.

The hearing comes after two years of in-depth investigation, including testimonials from Iraqi war victims by the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission.

According to the Kuala Lumpur War Commission, both Bush and Blair had participated in the formulation of executive orders and directives to exclude the applicability of all international conventions and laws.

There was no faulty intelligence on Iraq's WMDS. Bush and Blair's lot cooked up a non-existant threat so the War could be semi-jusitified. Starting wars is a War Crime and they need to face criminal prosecution.
