Have your say! "Free Speech" or Muslim bashing? Do you support Iraq troop withdrawal? Iran invasion?

    Lancashire MP says US, Britain must not violate international law

    I quite agree, but unfortunately it's too late for that warning. International law has already been violated. PENDLE MP Gordon Prentice has warned the British and American governments that their actions in Iraq must not breach international humanitarian law. It follows concerns expressed by the International Committee of the Red Cross that it may be being breached by the allied forces . Mr Prentice is one of eight MPs to sign a Commons Motion on the issue. The motion reminds the government that "complying with international humanitarian law in Iraq is an obligation not an option". It adds: "We endorse the ICRC view that killing of non-combatants or those no longer fighting, torture of non-combatants and combatants and the taking of hostages whether Iraqi or foreign, are all prohibited."
