Bush, Blair Found Guilty of War Crimes

By Press TV

November 25, 2011 --- A War Crimes Tribunal in Malaysia has found former US President George W. Bush and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair guilty of war crimes for their roles in the Iraq war.

The five-panel Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal decided that Bush and Blair committed genocide and crimes against humanity by leading the invasion of Iraq in 2003, a Press TV correspondent reported on Tuesday.

In 2003, the US and Britain invaded Iraq in blatant violation of international law and under the pretext of finding weapons of mass destruction allegedly stockpiled by former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.

The Malaysian tribunal judges ruled that the decision to wage war against Iraq by the two former heads of government was a flagrant abuse of law and an act of aggression that led to large-scale massacres of the Iraqi people.


Bombings and other forms of violence became commonplace in Iraq shortly after the US-led invasion of the country.

In their ruling, the tribunal judges also stated that the US, under the leadership of Bush, fabricated documents to make it appear that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction.

However, the world later learned that the former Iraqi regime did not possess WMDs and that the US and British leaders knew this all along.

Over one million Iraqis were killed during the invasion, according to the California-based investigative organization Project Censored.

The judges also said the court findings should be provided to signatories to the Rome Statute, which established the International Criminal Court, and added that the names of Bush and Blair should be listed on a war crimes register. 


WAR CRIMINAL TONY BLAIR IS NOT ARRESTED BUT THE ONE WHO HAD THE COURAGE OF ACCUSING HIM OF WAR CRIMES AND BRIBERY IS ARRESTED BY THE JEWISH CONTROLLED BRITISH GESTAPO!

Protester David Lawley Wakelin Storms Blair's Leveson Hearing

A protester has branded Tony Blair a war criminal after storming the Leveson Inquiry hearing where the former prime minister is giving evidence.
The man, who told reporters his name was David Lawley Wakelin, managed to evade security and access the court room through a secure corridor.

He was arrested on suspicion of breach of the peace and was held in custody at a central London police station.

According to Sky sources, he was later released without any further action.

A second man was arrested by police after eggs were thrown at Mr Blair's car as he left court.
The 49-year-old who stormed the inquiry earlier appeared to catch security at the Royal Courts of Justice off guard and was able to hurl accusations at Mr Blair before he was bundled away.

As Mr Blair looked on, the said: "JP Morgan paid him off for the Iraq war. Three months after he invaded Iraq, they held up the Iraq bank for 20 billion.

"He was then paid six million dollars every year and still is from JP Morgan six months after he left office. This man is a war criminal."

Lord Justice Leveson immediately ordered an inquiry into the security breach.

Appearing slightly stunned, he said: "I'm sorry for that Mr Blair. I would like to find out how this gentleman managed to access the court through what is supposed to be a secure corridor.
"I will have an investigation undertaken about that immediately. I apologise."

Mr Blair added: "Can I just say on the record what he said about Iraq and JP Morgan is completely and totally untrue. I have never had any discussion with them about that."

The protester was escorted through the Royal Courts of Justice by security guards and was seen being driven away in a police van.

It is understood he managed to get past security-coded doors to access the judges' corridor leading to courtroom 73.

A spokesman for Her Majesty's Courts and Tribunals Service said: "An investigation has been ordered into an incident at the Leveson Inquiry, Royal Courts of Justice. It would be inappropriate to pre-empt the findings of this investigation."

At the start of the afternoon session, Lord Leveson vowed to review security measures to guard against similar incidents.

"Considerable effort has been put into ensuring all witnesses can give their evidence in a safe and secure environment and I very much regret what has happened," he said.

"An investigation is being undertaken and I will be giving consideration to the steps that can be taken and should be taken against this particular intruder.

"Efforts will be redoubled to ensure that incidents of this nature don't recur. I repeat my apologies to Mr Blair and indeed to everyone else who was involved in or following our inquiry."

Blair Protester Tells Of His Leveson Intrusion

An activist who stormed into the Leveson Inquiry and branded Tony Blair a war criminal while he was giving evidence has said it was too good an opportunity to miss.
David Lawley Wakelin managed to evade security and access the court room where the former prime minister was sitting through a secure corridor.

He was bundled out of the room and held in custody at a central London police station on suspicion for a breach of the peace.

The 49-year-old was later released without any further action.

Speaking to James O'Brien on LBC 97.3 afterwards, he said: "I stood in a bathroom for five minutes, recalculating what was going to happen to me after I got through the door but then decided that my beef with Tony Blair is too great to miss this opportunity.

"I got in and I said 'this man should be arrested for being a war criminal', and then I made a statement about my evidence to show that in my opinion he is a war criminal.

"Two guys grabbed me from behind and pretty much pulled me backwards out of the court the same way as I had come in... into a waiting police van.

"They didn't cuff me, they didn't arrest me, they didn't charge me or caution me. They took me away for a breach of the peace and asked me to stay away from the Leveson Inquiry," he added.

UK activist calls for Blair’s arrest in Hong Kong

He [Tony Blair] misled the British people, he's caused the deaths of 100,000 people at least, and there was some obligation on Hong Kong police to actually arrest him."
Tom Grundy, British activist
A British activist has interrupted former British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s speech at the University of Hong Kong, seeking to make a citizen’s arrest on him.


A British-born Hong Kong-based activist, Tom Grundy, interrupted Blair’s speech as he started to lecture on religion and globalization at the University of Hong Kong.

Grundy cited breeches of the Geneva Convention and other international codes while demanding a citizen’s arrest on Blair.

“I attempted a citizen's arrest against Tony Blair today because back in 2009 he admitted he would have gone to war with Iraq regardless of the WMD's [Weapons of Mass Destruction], and that means it's in defiance of the Nuremburg Principles, the UN Charter, the Geneva Convention, and a pending International Criminal Court, a Rome Statute”, said Grundy after he left the auditorium being threatened with police action.

“He misled the British people, he's caused the deaths of 100,000 people at least, and there was some obligation on Hong Kong police to actually arrest him”, Grundy added.

Antiwar protesters have repeatedly called for the trial of Blair for war crimes. Last month, a group of demonstrators interrupted a commencement speech by Blair at Colby College in Maine, the US, shouting “warmonger” and “war criminal”.

One week later, while Blair was giving evidence at an inquiry into his links with the British media, another protester managed to enter the courtroom and demanded Blair’s arrest for war crimes.

In November last, a symbolic tribunal in Malaysia found Blair and former US President George W Bush guilty for committing “crimes against peace” when they invaded Iraq.

Archbishop Tutu calls for 'lying' Blair and Bush to face trial in Hague Criminal Court over Iraq war

  • Nobel Peace Prize winner accuses Tony Blair and George W. Bush of lying about Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction
  • 'They fabricated the grounds to behave like playground bullies,' he says
  • Archbishop claims ousting Saddam created backdrop for Syrian civil war
  • 'The old canard we lied about intelligence is completely wrong', says Blair

Archbishop Desmond Tuttu: He claims Blair and Bush lied about weapons of mass destruction
Archbishop Desmond Tuttu: He claims Blair and Bush lied about weapons of mass destruction

Archbishop Desmond Tutu has demanded that Tony Blair be tried in The Hague over the invasion of Iraq.

The Nobel Peace Prize winner accused the former Prime Minister of lying about Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction and said that the 2003 war had left the world  more destabilised and divided than ‘any other conflict in history’.

He said Mr Blair should be subjected to a trial at the International Criminal Court, along with former US president George W. Bush.

The archbishop claimed that the US and UK-led military operation to oust Saddam  created the backdrop for the civil war in Syria and a possible wider Middle East conflict involving Iran.

He said: ‘The then leaders of the United States and Great Britain fabricated the grounds to behave like playground bullies and drive us further apart. 

‘They have driven us to the edge of a precipice where we now stand – with the spectre  of Syria and Iran before us. 

'The question is not whether Saddam Hussein was good or bad or how many people he massacred, the point is that Mr Bush and Mr Blair should not have allowed themselves to stoop to his immoral level.’ 

Calling for the pair to face justice in The Hague, he said different standards appeared to be set for prosecuting African leaders, and that the death toll during and after the Iraq conflict was sufficient evidence for them to face action.

‘On these grounds alone, in  a consistent world, those responsible should be treading the same path as some of their African and Asian peers who have been made to answer for their actions in The Hague,’  he said.

Archbishop Tutu, a long-time critic of the Iraq war, won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 for speaking out against apartheid in his native South Africa.
Last week he pulled out of a South African conference on leadership because Mr Blair was attending.

In response to the archbishop’s remarks, Mr Blair said that it was right to get rid of Saddam because of the human rights abuses he perpetrated, and he argued that Iraq was now a better place.

He said: ‘I have a great respect for Archbishop Tutu’s fight against apartheid – where we were on the same side of the argument – but to repeat the old canard that we lied about the intelligence is completely wrong, as every single independent analysis of the evidence has shown.

‘And to say the fact that Saddam massacred hundreds of thousands of his citizens is irrelevant to the morality of removing him is bizarre.’

He added: ‘I would also point out that despite the problems, Iraq today has an economy three times or more in size with child mortality rate cut by a third of what it was. And with investment hugely increased in places such as Basra.’ 


Yesterday, former Lib Dem leader Menzies Campbell declined to back Archbishop Tutu’s call for a Hague trial.

He said: ‘When any question of crime is discussed in any jurisdiction, you have to ask yourself whether an act was committed and whether that act was committed with criminal intent.

'Although I believe that George W Bush and Tony Blair were wrong ...  I don’t believe they did so with any malign intention.’

How a barman tried (and failed) to make citizen's arrest on Tony Blair as the former PM dined in London restaurant


A barman has described how he tried to carry out a citizen’s arrest on Tony Blair for ‘crimes against peace’ while the former Prime Minister was out having dinner.

Twiggy Garcia approached Mr Blair at a trendy restaurant in Shoreditch, east London, and attempted to apprehend him in front of his family.

The part-time music producer claimed he put his hand on Blair’s shoulder and told him: ‘Mr Blair, this is a citizen's arrest for a crime against peace, namely your decision to launch an unprovoked war against Iraq.'

‘I am inviting you to accompany me to a police station to answer the charge.’

Mr Garcia made the bold move due to a site which offers a £2,150 bounty for anyone who ‘arrests’ Mr Blair for crimes against peace.

He said Mr Blair responded by engaging him in a debate about Syria and Saddam Hussein, before the former PM’s son alerted a security guard. Mr Garcia decided to then leave the restaurant ’to avoid any trouble’.

He told Vice magazine: ‘My heart rate increased when I found out he was in the building; there was a eerie presence, which some of the other staff noticed too.

'I went over to him, put my hand on his shoulder and said: “Mr Blair, this is a citizen's arrest for a crime against peace, namely your decision to launch an unprovoked war against Iraq. I am inviting you to accompany me to a police station to answer the charge."

'He said, “No, shouldn’t you be worried about Syria?” and I replied that I can only address things that are within my grasp at any one time.
Mr Blair and his family had been eating at the trendy Tramshed restaurant in east London when Mr Garcia attempted …

'Then he asked me, “But don’t you agree that Saddam was a brutal dictator and he needed to be removed?” and I replied “Not by an illegal war.” Then he started talking about how lots of people died in the 1980s.'

Mr Garcia made the attempted citizen’s arrest after learning that Mr Blair was eating at Tramshed, a trendy East London restaurant where he was working at the time.

He said attempting to arrest Tony Blair was ‘something I have wanted to do for a few years’, as he believes ‘Blair is responsible for the mass murder of Iraqi civilians after taking our country into an illegal war.'

Perhaps realising he would have difficulties in justifying what he had done to his employer, Mr Garcia decided to quit his job ‘there and then’ when he walked out of the restaurant that night.

Mr Garcia is the fifth person to have attempted an arrest on Tony Blair, who now works as a Middle East peace envoy.

A spokesperson for the former Prime Minister dismissed the incident, saying there was ‘nothing to report’.

They said: ‘Mr Blair did offer to discuss the issue – that offer was declined and the individual walked off. Nothing else happened. Everyone is fine and they had a great time.'

Mr Garcia was inspired to approach the former Prime Minister after reading website arrestblair.org.
This site encourages people to try and arrest Blair for 'crimes against peace.'

The arrests are largely symbolic, but a bounty is offered to those who attempt it should it be reported in the media.

The website says the intention of the campaign is to encourage attempts to arrest the former prime minister, to remind the public justice has not yet been done and to 'show the mass murder he committed will not be forgotten.'
It adds campaigners wish to put pressure on the authorities to prosecute Blair for a crime against peace.
Mr Garcia said he had not planned to approach Blair but decided to take the opportunity when he walked into the trendy east London eatery.
Speaking with Vice, he said: 'My heart rate increased when I found out he was in the building; there was a eerie presence, which some of the other staff noticed too.
'I went on the arrestblair website to see how to perform a citizen’s arrest.

Diary: moves begin to impeach Tony Blair

Any regrets about Iraq? Perhaps crossing George Galloway and Simon Heffer
Tony Blair

• Few unbreakable rules in politics and journalism, but one is that when Simon Heffer speaks, wise types listen. This is easier on some occasions than others, for the Heff, as familiarity permits us to call him, is teller of unpalatable truths. And so yesterday, when he declared that Tony Blair must be impeached by parliament, it was inevitable that someone would do his bidding. He took us to war on a lie, said the Heff. "Impeachment is the right tool for a former prime minister accused of such behaviour." It is easier than it sounds, for conviction can be obtained by a simple majority, "at which point a sentence can be passed, which could in theory involve Tony Blair being sent to prison". This was catnip to Blair's longtime pursuer George Galloway, and yesterday the Bradford West MP began the formal process with the clerk of the Commons. A select committee must now progress the matter. The ball is rolling; does Blair have friends in the House sufficient to stop it? Already this is the stuff of history. Could anyone else have provoked a joint enterprise between George Galloway and the Heff?

• The milk of human kindness flows from the Department for Education, and the beneficiaries will be our schoolchildren. Wasn't it great that, mindful of nothing save for the health of our young 'uns, Michael Gove moved to prescribe what appears to be milk availability in every school? Only it isn't. Existing free schools and academies will be exempted; for having given them autonomy, he can't retrospectively fiddle with their contracts. And it isn't quite the gift it appears. Margaret Thatcher snatched away free supplies of milk; Gove now orders schools to sell it. A headteacher disinclined to embrace fresh diktat from Whitehall need stock only a single carton to comply. And then there is the announcement itself, apparently brought forward. No general briefing under embargo. Most paid to monitor the doings of the Gove-ite empire knew nothing about it until the mid-afternoon appearance of the announcement on the website. Gove has had a bumpy time recently – a cockfight with Theresa May, the troublesome decision of his acolyte Dominic Cummings to publicly rubbish David Cameron. A cynical soul might think he was keen to create a distraction.

• Further to the Guardian's investigation into the middle-class annexation of representative politics, one is reminded of the recent example of a prospective Labour councillor who advertised for someone less time-poor to do his campaigning for him. All was well until this diary blew the whistle. The advert was withdrawn quite quickly; somehow he found the time and will to campaign for himself. And then there is the tale of the bashful, well-to-do candidate who, asked to state his qualifications, said he had studied "languages at a college in the Midlands". It transpired he read classics at Oxford.

• This just in, on the BBC – its "bias", its alleged embrace of everything that tickles tummies in the Labour party and here at the Guardian. Off we'll go to the 40th anniversary conference of the energetically right-of-centre Centre for Policy Studies, the thinktank founded by Thatcher's go-to man for illiberal, often mad ideas, Sir Keith Joseph. Indeed, this is the Margaret Thatcher Conference on Liberty 2014. Looking forward to the session on "New media and liberty": it's chaired by the Today programme's Justin Webb. Just hope those bias-obsessed brutes at the Mail and Telegraph go easy on him.

• For today's event, in London's Guildhall, is a worthwhile event; and we are not the only ones who think so. In this time of retrenchment and penny-pinching, the cash-rich, democracy-lite City of London Corporation sponsored the rightwing bash to the tune of £45,000.

• Raised eyebrows, finally, as the Catholic charitable organisation Caritas Social Action Network tells of its parliamentary reception. The diary date is 5 November. A small body of committed Catholics at the heart of the Palace of Westminster. We look to Cardinal Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster and the keynote speaker, to keep the Queen's peace.
