LONDON - Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Desmond Tutu called Sunday for Tony Blair and George Bush to face prosecution at the International Criminal Court for their role in the 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq
Tutu, the retired Anglican Church's archbishop of South Africa, wrote in an op-ed piece for The Observer newspaper that the ex-leaders of Britain and the United States should be made to "answer for their actions."
The Iraq war "has destabilized and polarized the world to a greater extent than any other conflict in history," wrote Tutu, who was awarded the Nobel prize in 1984.
"Those responsible for this suffering and loss of life should be treading the same path as some of their African and Asian peers who have been made to answer for their actions in the Hague," he added.

Totally bogus premise. And what of 9/11? And what of Obama’s foray into Libya or Africa?
I thought he was dead and gone.
No, the old pious fraud is still running interference for the ANC goons.
He may have a point but I submit it was Sadam Husein who got that whole ball rolling by invading Kuwait.
I think his slip is showing in that he tries to paint this as a racist concession , mentioning only “Asian and African peers.” The highest profile Hague trials I know of were of the white European Serbs.
Has Mr. Tutu forgotten the Treaty of Versailles?
And how’s the human rights of your precious ANC doing..? you communist stooge.
Hey TUTU....take care of your own backyard DICTATORS and KILLERS at the ANC who are RUINING South Africa!! STFU.
Et tu, Tutu? F U
My God needs no defense by mortal men - He is a big boy who stands on His own...
Wow, and he’s a Nobel Peace prize winner, just like Obama and Arafat. Why don’t you look in your own back yard, you J.O.
Tutu wrote the above because he preferred the world do the morally convient thing; ignore the horrors committed by Saddam Husein.
War happens because people like Tutu allow horrors to accumulate until somethjing has to be done.
That's different and merely mentioning it is racist/S
But Phil Donahue loves him!!!
Tutu is a failed peacenik in the mold of Jimmy Carter....his ridding of white apartheid in South Africa only brought in worse Black Apartheid for both blacks and whites.
Bush and Blair are far from war criminals. If they are war criminals, then what was Franklin Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson?
Bush and Blair’s only problem was that they were too concerned with peacenuts like Tutu....and not executing the military action stronger...Bush’s “Islam is a religion of peace” comments showed a lack of committment to truly eradicate Islamic Terrorism
So-so Tutu blows smoke. How many divisions you got to make the bust for you, Tootsie?
Well I’ve figured it out ... why are ALL Episcopalians a little “nuts?” Bad wine.
