Bush-Terror, The 'Supreme International Crime'
By Ghali Hassan
11/17/04 "ICH" -- Since the Bush Administration took power in 2001, the world have witnessed a cabal of extremists and fanatics wreaking havoc on defenseless nations such as Iraq, Palestine and Afghanistan in complete violations of international law, international organizations, and justice. They are destroying not only the international system for peace and justice, but progressive legislations in the United States.
The destruction of Iraq continues with total disregard for international law. "The crime hereinafter set out are punishable as crimes under international law: wanton destruction of cities, towns, or villages, or destruction not justified by military necessity" (Nuremberg convention Principle VI, 1945). According to this definition, the Bush Administration's destruction of Fallujah, Ramadi, Tall Afar, Najef and Samarra constitutes war crimes for which the Nazis were tried and executed. To initiate a war of aggression is, very simply, the "supreme international crime" condemned at Nuremberg.
According to Francis Boyle, Professor of Law at University of Illinois, "In international legal terms, the Bush Administration itself should now be viewed as constituting an ongoing criminal conspiracy under international criminal law in violation of the Nuremberg Charter, the Nuremberg Judgment, and the Nuremberg Principles, due to its formulation and undertaking of aggressive war policies that are legally akin to those perpetrated by the Nazi regime".
