Skip to comments.Nobel Winner Desmond Tutu Calls For G. W. Bush & Tony Blair To Be Tried At The Hague For Iraq War

Tony Blair and George W Bush should be taken to the International Criminal Court in The Hague over the Iraq war, Archbishop Desmond Tutu has said.
Writing in the UK’s Observer newspaper, he accused the former leaders of lying about weapons of mass destruction.
The Iraq military campaign had made the world more unstable “than any other conflict in history”, he said.
Mr Blair responded by saying “this is the same argument we have had many times with nothing new to say”.
Earlier this week, Archbishop Tutu, a veteran peace campaigner who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 in recognition of his campaign against apartheid, pulled out of a leadership summit in Johannesburg because he refused to share a platform with Mr Blair.
The former Archbishop of Cape Town said the US- and UK-led action launched against Saddam’s regime in 2003 had brought about conditions for the civil war in Syria and a possible Middle East conflict involving Iran.
“The then leaders of the United States [Mr Bush] and Great Britain [Mr Blair] fabricated the grounds to behave like playground bullies and drive us further apart. They have driven us to the edge of a precipice where we now stand – with the spectre of Syria and Iran before us,” he said.
Senility is a tough thing to watch.
And Desmond Tutu should be tried for the terrorism he did in his journey to the Nobel peace prise.
Another example of a libtard evading reality by dropping context . Bush liberated millions in Iraq from oppression and the violation of their natural rights by a brutal dictator. Bush also prevented the natural rights of Americans from being violated by an enemy, which is one of the major purposes of a rational and just government.Bush has the moral high ground.
Wow! A Rockin’ Sydney reference. Saw him open up for John Conley at the Bayfront in Corpus Christi many years ago. A strange pairing ... but it worked. ;o)

Few people are aware that this senile douchebag is also a vicious Jew-hater. I won’t even type what he as said about the Jew and Israel. I just hope he drops dead tonight.
Desmond Tutu is still p.o.’ed that Jimmy Carter stole the presidency of Zimbabwe from him and gave it to Robert Mugabe.
Tutu and that other murderous Communist Nobel thug Mandala should both have been tried, convicted and executed long ago.

Sling an AK-47 over his shoulder and I see Comrade Mugabe.Anyone else?
Sorry you didn’t. If available, you should post some links. People should know this about him as well. If you post them, I’ll do my bit to spread the word.
The Iraq War made the world more unstable than any other conflict in history??? Really???
What about World War II? What are his criteria for determining threats to world peace, and the “instability” of the entire world when a war happens????

Just like Idi Amin, who had lots more medals.
If this ignoramus thinks "stability" is so precious, he must have loved the nuclear stand-off of the cold war. The world was never more stable--everyone was afraid to make a move.
If you fear the wrath of lame FR administrators, might you share that with me via private message?
I am always up for learning politically incorrect quotes from the delusional terminally righteous world commies.
Did they also get a Nobel Prize for inventing "necklacing?"
Or is that a Pulitzer.
