Malaysian War Crimes Tribunal Finds Bush and Cheney Guilty

Kuala LumpurOh, if only it were the Hague. Or better yet, the U.S. Supreme Court. I guess it’s a start, though. Via Common Dreams:

Former President George W Bush, his vice president, Dick Cheney, and six other members of his administration have been found guilty of war crimes by a tribunal in Malaysia.

Bush, Cheney, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and five of their legal advisers were tried in their absence and convicted on Saturday.

Victims of torture told a panel of five judges in Kuala Lumpur of their suffering at the hands of US soldiers and contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan. Among the evidence, Briton Moazzam Begg, an ex-Guantanamo detainee, said he was beaten, put in a hood and left in solitary confinement. Iraqi woman Jameelah Abbas Hameedi said she was stripped and humiliated in the notorious Abu Ghraib prison.

Transcripts of the five-day trial will be sent to the chief prosecutor at the International Criminal Court, the United Nations and the Security Council.

    Fight back
    Let them all know that we’re back
    And feel the knife at your back

    War act
    A fact
    The government will crash
    It’s now
    It’s dead
    Nobody can bring them back

    Malaysians should first execute their Prime Minister for killing, with C-4 no less – a Mongolian girl Atantuya. If only these 3rd world Malaysian monkeys can only see the log in their own eyes. Just look at the numbers of Malaysians illegal overstayers in Britain…!
