Tutu: prosecute Bush43 and Tony Blair

A Nobel Peace Prize winner is calling for the prosecution of disgraced former Republican US President George W. Bush and sexed-up former British Prime Minister Tony Blair alleging that a conspiracy based on lies thrust war upon innocents.

From Toby Helm in The Observer:
Archbishop Desmond Tutu has called for Tony Blair and George Bush to be hauled before the international criminal court in The Hague and delivered a damning critique of the physical and moral devastation caused by the Iraq war. Writing in the Observer, Tutu also suggests the controversial US and UK-led action to oust Saddam Hussein in 2003 created the backdrop for the civil war in Syria and a possible wider Middle East conflict involving Iran.
Attorney General Eric Holder recently announced that the US will not prosecute those implicated in torture while acknowledging the likelihood of other crimes.

Bush43 has cancelled trips to Switzerland and Canada as the Center for Constitutional Rights and other human rights groups prepared to submit a 2500-page indictment of the former President of US. A publicist for the former Dick-puppet cited concern that the visits could trigger violent protests.

Yeah, right.

Wave bye-bye, W; and, think: October Surprise.

If such a prosecution occurs, the Left will have acquired a skill that the Right mastered long ago: Shooting oneself in the foot.

It's the Left's equivalent of the Birther thing, a gift that keeps on giving (to the other side).

You might be right, Stan. What should we call ourselves: war crimers? Am-Bushers?

Am-Bushers! That sounds good.

In all Vulcan detachment, I note that Tutu might in fact have a legitimate case.

But he's too late. It's a lost cause.

He'd have more fun roasting resistors ... see my Web link, above.
