Add to the list another leader calling for the prosecution of these war criminals who have been holding Iraq, our soldiers, and this nation hostage for years now...It will definitely take many folks like this man---In foreign countries---To get this ball rolling, as we know there is ZERO accountability in our gov or their croney-laiden, corrupted court system...It will take International Tribunals, where they can't dictate and bend laws and people to their will...But then the trick will be capturing and enforcement after trial...


"It was a opportunity for students to put a range of questions about war crimes and the international situation.

"He said that people have to stop killing each other and use arbitration, negotiation and discussion as an alternative to violence, war and killing."

On the war in Iraq, Mahathir spoke about "the thousands dying, the economic war, the power of oil and how we could utilise some of these tools to have a leverage against the people who commit countries to war," Shafiq said.

You beat me to it. I just read this story in the paper and was about to post the link.

How pleasing it would be to see Johhny Howard tried and punished for his part in the crime.
