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.
Along with the South Afircans stealing billions and murdering whites and each other?
Tutu is one moron that never impressed me much. I don’t understand why the commie libs have a love affair with him. I’ve always thought that he was a jerk. Your typical commie freeloader.
I wonder if he would be willing to investigate whether Syria has those WMDs ... ::crickets::
TU TU....time for you to STFU....
What about Obama for killing bin Laden for no reason or without authority?
Is every Nobel Peace Prize winner an anti-American communist idiot? I guess heinie kissinger wasn’t actually a commie, but he sure sold out South Vietnam.
Screw Tutu! I am surprised he isn’t one of the keynote speakers at the dimwits convention
Did Al Gore, Barack Obama and Jimmy Carter, who also won Nobel Peace Prizes, second his motion?
FU TU TU
Once again, whatever you do, do not imagine Tutu and Jimmy Carter as boyfriends.
“Don’t mess with my Tu Tu
Don’t mess with my Tu Tu
Now you could have the other woman
But don’t mess with my Tu Tu”
What’s that girl from FACTS OF LIFE know about Iraq?
What can you expect from a guy named after a ballet dancer’s skirt?
Whenever I see the term “Nobel Winner”, I stop reading and tune it out.
The Nobel prize has become nothing more then a political joke.
Well, if a leftist from some 3rd world country ask for it, it’s a done deal.
Why does anyone give a sh!t what these lefties think any longer?
You two slay me - - !
