War Crimes Tribunal in Malaysia convicts Bush and Cheney of crimes against humanity
George W. Bush and several other members of his administration have been found guilty of war crimes by the Kuala Lumpur Foundation to Criminalise War.
In a unanimous vote on Saturday the symbolic Malaysian war crimes tribunal, part of an initiative by former Malaysian premier Mahathir Mohamad, found the former US President guilty of war crimes and crimes against humanity.
Seven of his former political associates, including former Vice President Dick Cheney and former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, were also found guilty of war crimes and torture.
Press TV has reported the court heard evidence from former detainees in Iraq and Guantanamo Bay of torture methods used by US soldiers in prisons run by the American forces.
One former inmate described how he had been subjected to electric shocks, beatings and sexual abuse over a number of months.
A high ranking former UN official, former UN Assistant Secretary General, Denis Halliday, who also attended the trial, later told Press TV that the UN had been too weak during the Bush administration to enforce the Geneva Conventions.
He said: “The UN is a weak body, corrupted by member states, who use the Security Council for their own interests. They don’t respect the charter. They don’t respect the international law. They don’t respect the Geneva Conventions…A redundant, possibly a dangerous, and certainly corrupted organization.”
A war crimes tribunal against a US President has all of the power and authority of two kids wearing paper sheriff stars and carrying cap guns. I'm sure Bush, Cheney, and the rest of that gang have that Malaysian resolution framed and hung next to ones from all of the other countries that have indicted them.
No need to down a plane over that.
A plane crashes and it's everything but an airplane crashing. Plenty of airplanes have crashed and where never seen again. Cities, civilizations, cultures, races, species, landmasses and even entire planets have been destroyed and have so to say "disappeared".
