    Blair and Bush should be taken to the international criminal court over their involvement in the Iraq crime.  Here are Desmund Tutu's exact words concerning their roles in the invasion of Iraq. No need to you that he is a man of god and nobel price. Any thoughts?

      I know what you are talking about, but how about posting a link to Desmund Tutu's words for the benefit of others?

    Are people that lazy that they require a link or does it mean that it is a toxic info? Why would I do that? Voltairenet.org, if interested!

      voltairenet.org is a hate group that has recently set its aim on the US, period. It had its origins in Paris fighting what it perceived to be a violation of the separation of Chruch & State but has since set its sites on simply trying to decry the US as some sort of World Dictator. If one visits their site it is truly amazing how we've managed to control nearly every country of the world and are the reason for all evil things within it.

    Can you read French, Spanish or any other languages used in the website? A "hate group" based upon what? If you analyze the US foreign policy in what way isn't it close to a world dictator? What do I see that you don't? So far, the US were involved in many coups before the creation of this website, Perkins himself unvealed the deceitfulness of the US. I mean come on, be critical, a little bit!
    How is it that no US newspapers wrote about the non-aligned movement in Tehran?

    John Perkins wrote a book which he knew would have an appeal with the aim to guess what, make money. And he did. Which is why he owns a yacht and other such nice things. His book is 200 pages of his personal fantasy with absolutely no evidence to back up any of his claims.

    Lies, he had money before. The CIA hires patriotic people in financial needs to make some money. The rest of the world has a different intake about the involvement of the US in worldwide military coups. It's not because, yourself, you are limited that the rest of us are too. Does it mean that Naomi Klein is wrong too and tapped in the same financial well? Why don't you ask people from Argentina, Chile, Congo, Sierra Leone...?

    I would say yes she is. Klein's views are completely debunked on the following site but just her basic principle is false as she talks about "capitalism" and then uses examples of "state capitalism", two entirely different things that she clearly does not even understand the differences between. The proceeds from one of her books did go to one of her favorite charities. All other proceeds have benefited her personally. You figure it out.

    Here's a piece form the Guardian, there are also a couple more articles there relating to Tutu'S stance on Iraq. And i think Tutu is absolutely right, Blair and Bush should be tried at the Hague!

      Hi Hollie,
      You neglected to include your source but I did some researching of my own. It is difficult for me to give any credence to a man's opinion when he completely discounts the atrocities Hussein committed against his own people (stating they have no relevance) but wants to condemn Blair and Bush for their actions (based on intelligence information which was perhaps flawed but that was not known at the time). The two views side by side are beyond hypocritical and smack of an agenda other than truth. One might also consider that suddenly Syria has this nice stockpile of chemical weapons. Hmm...I wonder if they were imports from a certain country.

        After many research, little sassysue reached the following conclusion, that we can't believe a man that discounts Hussein's atrocities. But, now, everybody knows where Hussein is as well as Bush and Blair. If he paid for what he committed (not by a court of law but a good old day pure lynching) why Bush and Blair are still enjoying fresh air breezes?
