Blair may have to face ICC if he attacks Iraq
"There is a 100 percent certainty that Blair will be investigated by the ICC for war crimes if he attacks Iraq," said Phil Shiner of the Public Interest Lawyers firm in Birmingham... Nicholas Grief of Bournemouth University, who specialises in international law, said November's U.N. Security Council Resolution 1441 on Iraq did not authorise the use of force."

Australian PM Howard could and should also be called to account by the ICC if he participates in illegal wars and war crimes, such as an unprovoked and unauthorised attack on Iraq. Bush will be immune because, for obvious reasons, the US has consistently failed to sign on to the ICC treaty.
