Crimes Against Humanity……

Afghanistan……

Precise figures for the total number of civilians killed in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are hard to establish.  From a

variety of sources including the World Health Organisation, citations from Wikipedia and official government statistics put the figure at around 2 million.  Considering the 9/11 hijackers were neither trained in, funded by, or citizens of either country, this has been a heavy price to pay in wasted human lives.  President George W. Bush announced within 24 hours of the 9/11 attacks that Osama Bin Laden and the Al Qaeda network were responsible despite having no evidence with which to back up this claim.  The invasion of Afghanistan was done on the basis that the Al Qaeda networks had training camps there and were in the advanced stages of planning another attack on American soil.  It soon became clear that any activity in Afghanistan was limited and on a small scale.  After the initial air bombardment in the north of Afghanistan failed to route out Osama Bin Laden, ground forces were deployed and 68,000 US troops are still occupying the country 10 years later with casualties now in excess of 2000.  It was known by US intelligence that Osama Bin Laden was not in Afghanistan when the attacks began and the Taliban offered to hand over Bin Laden to the US if it presented them with proof of his involvement in 9/11; proof which the Americans did not have and, have not to this day provided to the Taliban, their own citizens or the rest of the world.  The official FBI poster does not indict him with the attacks of 9/11 as, by their own admission, they have not one shred of evidence linking Osama Bin Laden to 9/11.  Bin Laden also suffers from Diabetes and Renal Failure, for which he requires Insulin injections and Dialysis; not something easily accessible in a third world country whist hiding from the rest of the world in a cave.  Osama Bin Laden was in Pakistan, a fact which the US Government was well aware of.

Iraq……

Saddam Hussein and Iraq were not implicated in the 9/11 attacks in any way whatsoever.  He provided no funding or

practical help to Osama Bin Laden a man whom he reportedly disliked.  It is now a matter of public record that ‘Operation Iraqi Freedom’ was agreed between President Bush and Prime Minister Blair long before the ‘sexed up’ dossier appeared at a Downing Street meeting.  The substance of the dossier was that Saddam Hussein had the ability to launch a biological attack against UK soil in 20 minutes.  It was this claim that led to the invasion of Iraq by UK and US forces, beginning with ‘Shock & Awe’, an opportunity for the US military to demonstrate the fire power available to it at a moments notice and was done for the benefit of the rest of the world rather than in the pursuit of neutralising the ’20 minute’ threat to the UK.  In the same way that the Bush administration knew Osama Bin Laden was not in a cave in Afghanistan, Blair and the Cabinet knew that the ’20 minute’ warning was completely false.  This makes President George W. Bush and Prime Minster Tony Blair ultimately responsible for the deaths of over 2 million innocent civilians.

Iran……

Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, continues Sabre rattling at the United Nations over the Iranian’s alleged

Vanunu the Whistleblower

desire to build a nuclear weapon.  According to the International Atomic Energy Agency, Iran could produce enough fissionable material for a single warhead by 2013.  Netanyahu has proposed that the west intervene when the Iranians have reached 90% of that target.  This is a clearly ridiculous stand by the Israeli Prime Minister as Iran, which is a signatory to the non-proliferation treaty and as a sovereign state is fully entitled to use nuclear energy, would be highly unlikely to build and launch one single warhead against any of its neighbours.  Ironically, Israel does not allow inspections by the IAEA and denied having a nuclear program until Mordechai Vanunu blew the whistle on Israel in 1986, for which he received an 18 year prison sentence, 11 and a half of which he spent in solitary confinement……

Extraordinary Rendition and Torture……

The ‘Extraordinary Rendition’ of UK citizens is state sponsored kidnapping.  UK citizens have been unlawfully abducted by covert operatives of a foreign government, flown out of the UK to undisclosed ‘black’ sites and been subjected to torture by their captors.  This is illegal under UK law, EU law and International law.  Some of the victims of ‘Extraordinary Rendition’ have eventually ended up at GuantanamoBay, where they have not been charged with any crime, tortured and deigned access to legal representation.

Gitmo

Any Cabinet Minister and, ultimately, the Prime Minister are responsible if they had prior knowledge of an ‘Extraordinary Rendition’.  They must be complicit as it is not possible for an aircraft to enter our airspace, land and leave British airspace without clearance from either civilian or military air traffic control.  This, in turn, makes them responsible for any action taken against the individual subsequently.

The International Criminal Court……

Criminals

Both Bush and Blair knowingly invaded Afghanistan and Iraq under false pretences needlessly causing the deaths of tens of thousands of innocent civilians.  This amounts to an act of unprovoked aggression for which they should be tried.  Complicity in the extraordinary rendition, torture and illegal detention of civilians without charge is a crime.  The extrajudicial execution of civilians by unmanned ‘Predator’ drones in a countries sovereign territory is not only a crime; it is an act of war……
