“There are no warlike people – just warlike leaders.”
– RALPH BUNCHE (1904-1971) American diplomat
Former American military psychological operations officer Scott Bennett appeared on Press TV recently and strongly suggested high government, military and intelligence officials from the United Kingdom and United States, including Tony Blair and George W. Bush, need to become investigated for war crimes for their actions leading up to and during the Afghanistan and Iraq Wars.
Most readers are well aware of the horrific facts surrounding the Iraq War, so no need to repeat them here. However, after the worldwide media storm generated by Tony Blair’s “some elements of truth” statements to the media recently, many are anticipating imminent and increasing numbers of disclosures of truth having the potential of leading to International Criminal Court (ICC) investigations into what anyone with a modicum of awareness recognizes as the most serious, large-scale execution of war crimes on Earth in the 21st century.
Scott Bennett’s analysis arrives at the truth, and it is perhaps impossible for any person to find fault or error in his estimate of the issue. Men and women on other media outlets have in the past days called for Tony Blair’s appearance at the Hague and ICC for what they unanimously agree are clearly actions reaching the level of war crimes.
More and more people have come to accept the disturbing and sobering fact that such is the truth and no longer deniable. One woman may have said it best for all people around the world who’ve come to a full realization of the truth: “If Tony Blair’s actions associated with the Iraq War don’t make him a war criminal, there is no such thing as a war criminal.” In America, citizens following these developments are most likely asking the same questions about George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and others responsible and accountable for the Iraq War as the British now with Blair, and – unfortunately or fortunately depending on one’s perspective – coming to the same conclusion.
Jeb Bush will withdraw from the race for President in the very near future.
Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time.
