    Dust off the Nuremberg Files

    Anwaar Hussain, writing this piece, from the Information Clearing House makes a good case for prosecuting the war criminals in charge of the illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq:

    According to a August 2002 report by the UN sub commission, laws which are violated by the use of DU shells include: the Universal Declaration of Human Rights; the Charter of the United Nations; the Genocide Convention; the Convention Against Torture; the four Geneva Conventions of 1949; the Conventional Weapons Convention of 1980; and the Hague Conventions of 1899 and 1907, which expressly forbid employing 'poison or poisoned weapons' and 'arms, projectiles or materials calculated to cause unnecessary suffering'. No legal genius, then, is required to indict George Bush, Tony Blair and a few other coalition leaders with violating: * The United Nations Charter * The 1945 Nuremberg Charter * International humanitarian law * The Geneva Conventions The main indictments could be further buttressed by certain other charges.
