Desmond Tutu: Bush and Blair Must Stand Trial For War Crimes

No wonder Obama likes him so much.

Far left loon Desmund Tutu called for the trial of George W. Bush and Tony Blair for liberating Iraq from the Saddam Hussein regime… 9 Years ago. Tutu wants them tried in The Hague.

Leftist loon Desmond Tutu pulled out of a peace conference this week in protest of Tony Blair’s participation.

Iranian Press TV News reported:

South African Nobel Laureate Desmond Tutu has called for the trial of former US President George W. Bush and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair for their role in the Iraq war.

“The immorality of the United States and Great Britain’s decision to invade Iraq in 2003, premised on the lie that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction, has destabilized and polarized the world to a greater extent than any other conflict in history,” Archbishop Desmond Tutu wrote in an article in The Observer on Sunday.

The Nobel Peace Prize winner called for the trial of the pair at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague.

Tutu added that, instead of recognizing the sophistications and issues of the world, “the then-leaders of the US and UK fabricated the grounds to behave like playground bullies and drive us further apart.”

He further argued that, the suffering and loss of the victims of the war were beyond the killing fields, “in the hardened hearts and minds of members of the human family across the world.”

Tony Blair, however, responded to Tutu in a statement saying that “this is the same argument we have had many times with nothing new to say.”

At least he didn’t bash Israel for abusing Arabs again.
