    Tutu: Bush, Blair should face trial at the Hague

    Tutu: Bush, Blair shouldface trial at the Hague

    By DAVID STRINGER | Associated Press 6 hrs ago.

    LONDON (AP) Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Desmond Tutu called Sunday forTony Blair and George Bush to face prosecution at the International CriminalCourt for their role in the 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq

    The strange thing was that Bush and Blair all got their second term even though the WMD accusation was proved a lie. The election machine is manipulated, so be the International Criminal Court. It is used to deal with "enemy" and will never apply on its creater.

    If there is proof that Bush knew the WMD intelligence was false, why wasn't he impeached? I'm sick of that accusation, personally.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Ywan. Bush did it!

    The entire intelligence community thought Saddam, had WMD's. Including Russia, Britain, US and Israel. I mean come on. The only person who lied here was Saddam. Talk about irony, lol.

    Alzheimer's is a terrible thing. Tutu is just pissed that only Africans have stood before the ICC, and that one must have ratified The Rome Statutes to stand before it.

    Fact is, there is no basis for giving the ICC jurisdiction. The US is not a signatory and the US court system IS capable of prosecuting such crime (even if the US ratified Rome, this latter argument ends his appeal).

    The US has nothing to do with the ICC. Do you even know what the Rome Statutes and the ICC are? Claiming that the US created the ICC demonstrates flagrant ignorance.

    But watch, the same people who cry about Iran's sovereignty will claim the US has no right to such.

    It's a frequent problem in international politics. Suffering under a brutal regime makes you a martyr, not an expert on policy or politics *cough* Mr. Tutu.

    can someone say conspirocy theory?
    Where is the proof "The election machine is manipulated,"
    Where is the proof "International Criminal Court" is also manipulated?
    Who is the creater you are refering to?
