Blair war criminal: "Tony Blair is facing a formal complaint to the international war-crimes tribunal by a panel of senior international legal experts for unlawfully waging war in Iraq. The panel of eight law professors, including experts from Oxford University and the London School of Economics, is studying evidence that alleges Britain has broken international treaties on war and human rights in Iraq... The panel will meet in London on Saturday to decide whether the evidence is strong enough for a formal complaint to the chief prosecutor at the International Criminal Court in The Hague... The inquiry's organisers think it highly likely the panel will find enough evidence to justify a complaint, but it remains unclear how the court will react."

The concept of "warcrimes" trials is compromised by Victors' Justice, but Blair, Bush and Howard certainly should be made to face court, even if it is an ad hoc court with no power to convict. The evidence, the documents, the truth is what is important.
