Bring Tony Blair to trial for war crimes

The Blair War Crimes Foundation has set up a petition to President of the United Nations General Assembly and the UK Attorney General to bring Tony Blair to trial for war crimes. I already signed a few days ago but want to draw this to attention of more folk,

Already the move is supported by John Pilger, Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, Ken Loach, Noam Chomsky, Richard Dawkins, Lindsey German, Ben Griffin, Dr Nawal Saadawi, Haifa Zangana, Dr Kamil Mahdi, Bruce Kent, and other citizens who want to see the UN General Assembly and the UK Attorney General uphold the UN Charter, the Geneva and Hague Conventions, and International Law, and to indict Tony Blair for war crimes. Please consider adding your name.

Laughable, pitiful, ignorant idea.

Tony Blair is a hero and deserves high praise and thanks for his courage in releasing the Iraqi people from Saddam's murderous regime. You will note that there are 700 or so signatories to this stupid petition. Bedfellows such as Pilger should put any sane individual on their guard.

Any "trial" of this great leader of the free world would last a day, perhaps an hour.

People who think in these terms are lacking in basic understanding of international law, and need to get back to looking at the facts on this and on earlier UN resolutions.

As well as the fact that most of the deaths in Iraq were NOT caused by the coalition forces, but by insurgents with an agenda, and not an agenda to SAVE Iraqi people.

You remember the insurgents, don't you? Suicide bombers from Iran and other parts of the Middle East? At it weekly? Even daily? Easy to forget now that Iraq is settling to become a beacon of hope and democracy in that troubled region.

Thank you, Mr Blair for all you have done.

I am very proud of you.
