Blair & Bush To Be Tried For War Crimes

KUALA LUMPUR, 20 October 2011

On November 19-22, 2011, the trial of George W Bush (former U.S. President) and Anthony L Blair (former British Prime Minister) will be held in Kuala Lumpur. This is the first time that war crimes charges will be heard against the two former heads of state in compliance with proper legal process.

Charges are being brought against the accused by the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission (KLWCC) following the due process of the law. The Commission, having received complaints from war victims in Iraq in 2009, proceeded to conduct a painstaking and an in-depth investigation for close to two years and in 2011, constituted formal charges on war crimes against Bush, Blair and their associates.

The Iraq invasion in 2003 and its occupation had resulted in the death of 1.4 million Iraqis. Countless others had endured torture and untold hardship. The cries of these victims have thus far gone unheeded by the international community. The fundamental human right to be heard has been denied to them.

      What is leaders of free nations present better targets for "righteoud indignation" than the evolutiionary throwbacks and barbarians of the various an fawned over petty dictators and genocidal maniacs of the 2nd and 3rd world sideshow that seems to so impress the media and most of the so-called "progressive" (regressive) lunatics who cry like little girls each and every time anyone makes mention of the treachery and butchery of the (mostly) African and Asian thugs, murderers, rapists, and pedophiles who plunder the UNARMED populations of the world.

     There's nothing of much value in the general exostences of either Bush or Blair, but they are the least of the world's criminals. Either one of them can come and stay at my place. I'll defend them on general principle, since the smarmy cohort that might be inclined to wish either man ill is made up of people I wouldn't piss on if they were on fire, I would consider it an honor to do whatever might be necessary to rid the entire world of their worthless presence.

     Isn't it about time the folks who stand for real justice and some return to reasoned thought and action actually STOOD UP?

Tried for War Crimes by tiny Kuala Lumpur - a mouse with bigger balls than the industrial First World lions.  Well, at least it is a start.  Maybe - just maybe - I will live to see justice for the Iraqi people done (but I really doubt it).
