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.

As a result, the KLWCC had been established in 2008 to fill this void and act as a peoples’ initiative to provide an avenue for such victims to file their complaints and let them have their day in a court of law.

The first charge against George W Bush and Anthony L Blair is for Crimes Against Peace wherein:

The Accused persons had committed Crimes against Peace, in that the Accused persons planned, prepared and invaded the sovereign state of Iraq on 19 March 2003 in violation of the United Nations Charter and international law.

The second charge is for Crime of Torture and War Crimes against eight citizens of the United States and they are namely George W Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Alberto Gonzales, David Addington, William Haynes, Jay Bybee and John Yoo. wherein:

The Accused persons had committed the Crime of Torture and War Crimes, in that: The Accused persons had wilfully participated in the formulation of executive orders and directives to exclude the applicability of all international conventions and laws, namely the Convention against Torture 1984, Geneva Convention III 1949, Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the United Nations Charter in relation to the war launched by the U.S. and others in Afghanistan (in 2001) and in Iraq (in March 2003); Additionally, and/or on the basis and in furtherance thereof, the Accused persons authorised, or connived in, the commission of acts of torture and cruel, degrading and inhuman treatment against victims in violation of international law, treaties and conventions including the Convention against Torture 1984 and the Geneva Conventions, including Geneva Convention III 1949.

The trial will be held before the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal, which is constituted of eminent persons with legal qualifications.

The judges of the Tribunal, which is headed by retired Malaysian Federal Court judge Dato’ Abdul Kadir Sulaiman, also include other notable names such as Mr Alfred Lambremont Webre, a Yale graduate, who authored several books on politics, Dato’ Zakaria Yatim, retired Malaysian Federal Court judge, Tunku Sofiah Jewa, practising lawyer and author of numerous publications on International Law, Prof Salleh Buang, former Federal Counsel in the Attorney-General Chambers and prominent author, Prof Niloufer Bhagwat, an expert in Constitutional Law, Administrative Law and International Law, and Prof Emeritus Datuk Dr Shad Saleem Faruqi, prominent academic and professor of law.

The Tribunal will adjudicate and evaluate the evidence presented as in any court of law. The judges of the Tribunal must be satisfied that the charges are proven beyond reasonable doubt and deliver a reasoned judgement.

In the event the tribunal convicts any of the accused, the only sanction is that the name of the guilty person will be entered in the Commission’s Register of War Criminals and publicised worldwide. The tribunal is a tribunal of conscience and a peoples’ initiative.

The prosecution for the trial will be lead by Prof Gurdial S Nijar, prominent law professor and author of several law publications and Prof Francis Boyle, leading American professor, practitioner and advocate of international law, and assisted by a team of lawyers.

The trial will be held in an open court on November 19-22, 2011 at the headquarters of the Al- Bukhary Foundation at Jalan Perdana, Kuala Lumpur.

    Dirty Little Secrets – the hidden, awkward origins of World War 2

    The unexpected views of four key diplomats who were close to events

    Just consider the following:

    · Joseph P. Kennedy, U.S. Ambassador to Britain during the years immediately preceding WW2 was the father of the famous American Kennedy dynasty. James Forrestal the first US Secretary of Defense (1947-1949) quotes him as saying “Chamberlain (the British Prime Minister) stated that America and the world Jews had forced England into the war”. (The Forrestal Diaries ed. Millis, Cassell 1952 p129).

    · Count Jerzy Potocki, the Polish Ambassador in Washington, in a report to the Polish Foreign Office in January 1939, is quoted approvingly by the highly respected British military historian Major-General JFC Fuller. Concerning public opinion in America he says “Above all, propaganda here is entirely in Jewish hands…when bearing public ignorance in mind, their propaganda is so effective that people have no real knowledge of the true state of affairs in Europe… It is interesting to observe that in this carefully thought-out campaign… no reference at all is made to Soviet Russia. If that country is mentioned, it is referred to in a friendly manner and people are given the impression that Soviet Russia is part of the democratic group of countries… Jewry was able not only to establish a dangerous centre in the New World for the dissemination of hatred and enmity, but it also succeeded in dividing the world into two warlike camps…President Roosevelt has been given the power.. to create huge reserves in armaments for a future war which the Jews are deliberately heading for.” (Fuller, JFC: The Decisive Battles of the Western World vol 3 pp 372-374.)

    · Hugh Wilson, the American Ambassador in Berlin until 1938, the year before the war broke out, found anti-Semitism in Germany ‘understandable’. This was because before the advent of the Nazis, “the stage, the press, medicine and law [were] crowded with Jews…among the few with money to splurge, a high proportion [were] Jews…the leaders of the Bolshevist movement in Russia, a movement desperately feared in Germany, were Jews. One could feel the spreading resentment and hatred.” (Hugh Wilson: Diplomat between the Wars, Longmans 1941, quoted in Leonard Mosley, Lindbergh, Hodder 1976).

    · Sir Nevile Henderson, British Ambassador in Berlin ‘said further that the hostile attitude in Great Britain was the work of Jews and enemies of the Nazis, which was what Hitler thought himself’ (Taylor, AJP: The Origins of the Second World War Penguin 1965, 1987 etc p 324).

    Now to see who these judges and consultants belong to before we can see any truthful results to occur from this.

      Are you serious? You are clueless if you can ask this, it isn’t as if these names are unknown.

    You have forgotten to add the Clinton administration for the illegal attack on Serbia, the mirror image of Libya
    And Cameron, Obama and Sarkozy for the illegal destruction of Libya and the killing of possibly some 50,000 civilians
    There is a nest of war criminals out there, particularly British and American using NATO as a personal slaughtering service
    Take them all down.
    And Oh! Occupy!

    All the rednecks here in the States will laugh at this and then fall back to sleep while watching the Nascar races on television.

    But I applaud this and would like to see more of it.

    I filed to the ICC against the John Howard (Australian) govenment complicity in the same crimes, but the chief (ICC) prosecutor rejected my petition primarily on the grounds that there was no international consensus on the definition of ‘War of Aggression’. The definition was to be revised in 2009, but the new definition (if reached) would not be retrospective to 2009.

    I am a total layman of the law and construed my petition with the help of Prof Francis Boyle who I have noted is a participant of the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission.

    http://lis.net.au/marijonas/howard.htm

    I congratulate the dignity and richteousness of the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal to have taken this essential course of action.

  • profnasty

    Thankyou Kuala Lumpur.
    It is of prime importance to itemize and list the warcrimes of the Bush administration.
    There is still time to try PoppaBush and Bill Clinton.
    First and foremost prosecute the brutal thug Babydoc Bush, aka George Herbert Walker Bush.
    Godspeed.

    All of the war criminals should get the same trial that Qaddafi received.

    They left out Australia’s contribution, former Prime Minister John W Howard and his cabinet, and any one else on both sides of Parliament who supported this illegal War and eventual slaughter of the Iraqi people. Hang ’em High.

    Here’s something regarding these criminals, calling for justice closer to home:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tP1jvvg6UsI

    Coming the 5th of November, 2011, Muad’Dib will be releasing His latest hard-hitting documentary about the innumerable crimes of the Ashke-Nazi Banksters.

    From their historical origins down to their planned genocidal future, Muad’Dib tracks who THEY* are, how THEY operate, and most importantly, how to get rid of them once and for all.

    Muad’Dib is calling on millions of people to peacefully surround the Houses of Parliament in London, England — on the 5th of November, 2012 — to clean it of corruption and treason, making it a day that present and future generations will never forget.

    After being wrongfully arrested and falsely and maliciously imprisoned for making His “7/7 Ripple Effect” film and defending innocent people, Muad’Dib is back with no mercy for those who’ve shown none to others.

    Cutting to the root of the problem, with the only solution. Come and be part of it.

    Comment on President Obama “When we say we will never forget, we mean what we say”, war with Islam ,” it is an understatement , not pleased with this information becoming public”. (updated in 9/19 /2011 )

    President Barack. Obama on 5/19/2011 said :“change cannot be denied” , “After decades of accepting the world as it is, in the region, we have a chance to pursue the world as it should be,”, “We must proceed with a sense of humility,” the president said. “It is not America that put people into the streets …..- it was the people themselves who launched these movements, and must determine their outcome”, “The Palestinian people must have the right to govern themselves, and reach their potential, in a sovereign and contiguous state.” ,“Our message is simple: If you take the risks that reform entails, you will have the full support of the United States.”

    President Obama said on 1/19/2011`- in welcoming President Hu Jintao of China , “History shows that societies are more harmonious, nations are more successful and the world is more just when the rights and responsibilities of all nations and all people are upheld, including the universal rights of every human being.’’ Americans “have some core views as Americans about the universality of certain rights: freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of assembly”
    President Barack Obama soberly laid a wreath on 5/5/11 at New York’s ground zero- marking the death of the terrorist bin Laden where he inflicted his greatest damage -and the President declared “ When we say we will never forget, we mean what we say.” “What happened on Sunday (5/1/11) because of the courage of our military and the outstanding work of our intelligence sent a message around the world but also sent a message here back home” The President closed his eyes and clasped his hands at the outdoor memorial where the twin towers of the World Trade Center once dominated the Manhattan skyline. He shook hands with 9/11 family members at the site where the skyscrapers were brought down by planes commandeered by bin Laden’s followers. Nearly 3,000 people were killed. President Obama visited the Manhattan firehouse that sustained the heaviest losses on Sept. 11. “This is a symbolic site of the extraordinary sacrifice that was made on that terrible day,” the President said . The firehouse in New York’s theatre district lost 15 firefighters on Sept. 11.
    The President said on 9/11/2010, at the Pentagon, in a memorial honoring the nearly 200 victims of the attack there, about those responsible for the evil crimes of 9/11/2001 : “They might seek to spark conflict between different faiths, but as Americans we are not ”” and never will be ”” at war with Islam,” . “It was not a religion that attacked us that September day; it was Al Qaeda, a sorry band of men which perverts religion. And just as we condemn intolerance and extremism abroad, so will we stay true to our traditions here as a diverse and tolerant nation”.

    About WikiLeaks, former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said that US President Barack Obama “is, and it is an understatement, not pleased with this information becoming public”.
    About a meeting with congressmen at the White House on 6/1/2011, Jay Carney ,a spokesman for the president, said that President Obama noted that since he had taken office he had been called a job-killing socialist who created death panels and was not born in America

    With the present wide spread “Islamophobia “ in the USA ,Europe and in the world as a “result” of 9/11 /2001 and the continued discovery, particularly by the FBI and in Germany – and possibly on 7/22/2011 in Norway , of “terrorist “ plots ,
    all who value the basic and noble human values and rights-protected by all faiths and beliefs and as expressed for example in The Canadian Charter for Rights and Freedoms and in the UN Declaration for Human Rights –- – pray for the continued success of President Obama ,Representative Nancy Pelosi, Senator John Kerry , Senator Harry Reid , Representative Gabrielle Giffords and the Democratic Party in protecting these values and rights in the USA and in the world including against special interests and right wing extremists , congratulate Kathy Hochul and President Obama for Ms Hochul victory in the 26th Congressional District , in the New York elections on 5/25/11 ,
    pray for the success of President Obama in the 2012 presidential elections .

    All also pray now that President Obama will very soon publicly disclose to all Americans and to the world the names of THE CRIMINALS IN THE USA , EUROPE AND IN THE WORLD who are ultimately responsible for the evil crimes of 9/11,their real objectives in this war on Islam using Muslim “terrorists” (“jihadists” or “Islamists” ) ,as the so called al Qaeda,
    the two wars that followed in Iraq and Afghanistan – both citing 9/11 as the reason,
    the devastation that these wars have caused in these two countries ,
    the hundreds or thousands of Americans, Canadians, Germans and other NATO heroes killed ,wounded or committed suicide , including 157 from the Canadian force in Afghanistan , the latest are Bombardier Karl Manning ,although the reasons for his death on 5/27/2011 are still unknown ,his parents , fellow soldiers and friends strongly believe that it could not be suicide , and again Master Corporal Francis Roy on 6/25 although again not confirmed yet as suicide – and we all offer the sincerest condolences to their relatives, fellow soldiers and to all in Canada .
    the thousands or millions of Iraqi , Afghani Muslims and others who were killed and mutilated , tortured , wounded ,displaced …….,including the presently investigated killing of fourteen children and women ( by one Afghani count , nine civilians by NATO count) in Afghanistan by NATO forces on 5/28/2011. We all pray for the victims, for their relatives and for all affected in Afghanistan , Iraq …….and in the world .
    the present daily killing of tens or hundreds of innocents in Iraq ,Pakistan or Afghanistan to keep the US and NATO fully engaged , to claim that the President policies of disengagement are not working ,
    the resulting widespread prejudice towards the Islamic faith in the USA ,Europe ,Canada and in the world.

    The criminals of 9/11/2011 , are very likely responsible before that for the war in Bosnia ( 1992-95) ,and for the ethnic cleansing of non – Serbs , which left more than 100,000 people dead and drove another 1.8 million from their homes ,both nearly all from the Islamic faith ,including in 7 /1995 , for the” Srebrenica massacre “, the slaughter of around 8,000 men and boys ,all of the Islamic faith ,in the Bosnian enclave , which was the worst mass killing to occur in Europe since World War II. With the arrest of the “Butcher of Bosnia” in 5/26/2011, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen of Denmark greeted Ratco Mladic’s arrest saying “General Mladic played a key role in some of the darkest episodes of Balkan and European history, “Almost 16 years since his indictment for genocide and other war crimes, his arrest finally offers a chance for justice to be done.”

    The criminals of 9/11 are very likely also responsible for the rig explosion disaster in the USA in 2010 , for the human, ecological , environmental and economic devastation it caused, and with the very extremely criminal Israeli government – for the plot to divide Sudan – as the “only” way to prevent social injustice – with the 1/ 9/2011 referendum on secession , the resulting division of Sudan on 7/9/2011 and for presently stirring up ethnic and religious conflicts to further divide North Sudan- as they tried to do also in Iraq and Libya.
    They are also very likely responsible – with the very extremely criminal British and French governments – for the present, clearly endless, civil war in Libya leading very likely to Libya’s breakup and loss of the control of its natural resources , including by the present suddenly escalated NATO bombardment of government forces, killing of civilians and trying to kill the Libyan leader ,while claiming to be only enforcing UN Security Council resolution authorizing the use of force to protect Libyan civilians. and by the enforced no-fly zone – leading to hundreds already killed there by both sides and by NATO ,
    , and for the International Criminal Court singling out the leaders of Sudan and , on 6/27/2011 , Libya for arrest warrants with charges of “crimes against humanity”,
    .

    They are also very likely responsible for the murder of envoy Richard Holbrooke , for the present climate of hate in the USA leading to the shooting rampage in Arizona on 1/8/2011, killing of six and critically injuring Rep. Gabrielle Giffords – who , thanks to God , is now recovering . Her husband Cap. Mark Kelly was the commander of the Endeavour last space shuttle – in NASA’s 30 years space program – from 5/16/2011 to 6/01/2011. Endeavour landed on Earth ,at Cape Canaveral in Florida on 6/01 and we all pray for the returning hero astronauts thanking God for their safe return – and as Pope Benedict XVI told them on 5/21 in historic phone call : the space fliers are “our representatives spearheading humanity’s exploration of new spaces and possibilities for our future” admiring their courage, discipline and commitment and one of the hero shuttle astronauts told the pope “ Holy Father, I felt your prayers and everyone’s prayers arriving up here “.

    The criminals of 9/11 are also very likely responsible for the very suspicious ruling by a federal judge on 5/25/11 that that accused of committing the crimes against Rep Giffords , killing six and injuring twelve others – is not mentally competent for trial, and before that ,in Germany for a similar suspicious ruling about that accused of trying to assassinate Wolfgang Schauble ,on 9/12/1990 , who was one of the most popular politicians in Germany and there were speculations that he will be chosen as the Chancellor ,severely injuring Schäuble’s spinal cord and face and leading to his paralysis and using of a wheelchair ever since, for the suspiciously poor results of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian- Democrat Union , Christian Social Union and Vice Chancellor Philipp Rosler Free Democrats FDP in the State elections in Hamburg on 2/20/11 , in Saxony-Anhalt on 3/20/11 , in Rhineland-Palatinate ,Baden-Württemberg on 3/27/2011 , in Bremen on 5/22/11 , in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania on 9/4/11 and in Berlin on 9/18/11.
    They are also very likely responsible – with very extremely criminal republican leaders – for threatening in 12/2010 to block an extension of middle-class tax cuts unless President Obama gave in and extended tax cuts for the rich too , for trying to block the U.S. budget in the U.S. Congress on April 8 ,2011 , forcing cuts to serve only the ultra rich at the expense of all other Americans – and trying again in 5/2011 , and again on 5/31/2011, to keep “ America hostage” ,using blackmail, by refusing to raise the debt ceiling which should have been raised by Aug. 2 – when the Treasury Department said it will run out of room to meet all the government’s obligations without further borrowing , failure by Congress to increase that cap ”” which past Congresses have done as a matter of course no matter which party was in control ”” would have forced a U.S. default. a step that could have inflicted major economic damage on nearly all Americans and would have the potential for turmoil in world financial markets and international economies , UNLESS President Obama agreed to their extreme right agenda of deep spending cuts while refusing to raise taxes on the ultra rich – and while the Democratic Party holds both the White House and the Senate.
    They are also very likely responsible for the present very serious ,still existing , economic problems, that followed these wars in Iraq and Afghanistan , in the USA ,Europe – including Greece ,Ireland ,Portugal ,Italy and Spain – and in the world – particularly the present severe economic crisis facing the Socialist governments as in Greece ,
    and for the scandals facing Germany’s Bavaria’s conservative Christian Social Union and former defense minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg -Once Germany’s most popular and promising politician – forcing him to resign in 3/1/2011 and facing the Socialist Party in France and the International Monetary Fund leader Dominique Strauss-Kahn forcing him also to resign in 5/2011, – and succeeding ,by blackmailing and arm-twisting the US , Chinese , German …. governments – in 6/28/2011 in replacing him, as leader of the IMF, by Christine Lagarde , the Finance Minister in the present criminal French government which stands against every noble value that President Jacques Chirac and PM Dominique de Villepin Socialist government fought for.

    Addendum :
    ————–

    They are also very likely responsible for the rise of the anti-Islamic right – wing populist parties in the USA and in Europe , including in France ,Denmark , the Netherland ,Sweden and Finland , as 38 percent of Germans ,for example as shown by recent survey ,believe Islam doesn’t fit into a German lifestyle and represents a threat to German values – in Denmark, where the Danish People’s Party has 25 out of 179 seats in Parliament, in the Netherlands, where the criminal Geert Wilders’s Party for Freedom won 15.5 percent of the vote in the 2010 general election , in Sweden where the far-right Democrats entered Parliament for the first time after winning 5.7 percent of the vote in the general election in 9/2010
    and by the fact that in France –. With the next presidential elections less than a year away, some polls place Marine Le Pen [and The National Front (FN) party ] , whose father in 2002 lost the elections to President Jacques Chirac – in second place, ahead of unpopular present president and just behind Martine Aubry, the socialist politician who announced her candidacy in 6/2011 following the withdrawal of Dominique Strauss-Khan.

    The present prejudice against the Islamic faith is recently demonstrated by the horrific crimes of U.S..soldiers , of the so called “Kill Team “ ,against civilian Afghanis , by the burning of the holy Koran in Florida on 3/20/2011 causing the killing of tens of innocents in Afghanistan , by the arranged – by the International Free Press Society , the Canada Christian College and by the criminal Canadian government , cross-Canada speaking tour in 5/2011 for the criminal Dutch politician Geert Wilders ,who calls for a ban of the Holy Koran and calls Islam a fascist religion ,and who a Dutch court- in a bizarre ruling – on 6/23/2011 acquitted on all charges relating to anti-Islamic statements he made.

    The criminals of 9/11 are also very likely responsible , with the north Korean regime ,for the present violations of the nuclear” non-proliferation” treaty in the world . They are also very likely responsible for the irresponsible disclosures of “WikiLeaks” , for the decision on 7/6/2011 of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) voting not in favor of Munich for the 2018 winter Olympics…..
    The criminals of 9/11/2001 – while pretending to be champions of human rights and international law – are also definitely responsible before that and since at least 1986 until this instant , for crimes against humanity , forced involuntary biomedical experimentation on humans – using Muslim “guinea pigs” with microelectrodes implanted in their brains without their knowledge or consent – and involving very extremely evil obscene criminal complete invasion of privacy ,robotization , programming , torture, , trying to destroy or at least corrupt their Islamic faith and decent human values , holding them hostages in agent criminal countries trying to force them into complete corruption and ethical devastation and using them to intimidate and blackmail others of the Islamic faith , murder ….
