Architects of Iraq War ADMIT It Was Illegal

“International Law … Would Have Required Us to Leave Saddam Hussein Alone”

The chief American prosecutor for the Nuremberg war crime trials – Robert H. Jackson – stated:

To initiate a war of aggression, therefore, is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.

Forget third-hand allegations … the architects of the Iraq war admit that they initiated a war of aggression, not a war to defend America from imminent attack.

Influential Pentagon hawk Richard Perle conceded in 2003 that the invasion of Iraq had been illegal:

International law … would have required us to leave Saddam Hussein alone“, and this would have been morally unacceptable.

Indeed, U.S. government officials have admitted that everyone knew that Iraq didn’t have weapons of mass destruction.

A top Bush administration adviser –  Philip Zelikow said that the Iraq war was launched to protect Israel.

And the following Bush officials admitted that the Iraq war was launched for oil:

  • George W. Bush
  • Key war architect – and Under Secretary of State – John Bolton
  • Former Bush speechwriter David Frum (referring to Dick Cheney)
  • A high-level National Security Council officer
  • 4 Star General John Abizaid, the former commander of CENTCOM, with responsibility for Iraq
  • Many others

Of course, this is “old news” (#15) … except that the U.S. did the same thing in Libya, and is now doing the same thing in Ukraine, Syria and elsewhere.

    And all reasons to drag everyone involved into a court room, and charge them with international war crimes, and torture as well.
    Every single one involved

      Every single one, nick. Putin has already shared some of the information and more was received from intel and military sources in country and abroad. We know about the Israeli eagerness to deceive the world and create a Zionist nuclear arsenal led to the overworking of the Dimona reactor in the Negev. Perhaps because of a welding flaw or the use of copper coated welding rods rather than the required steel, a part of a fuel rod assembly broke free during a refueling while hot and running. The resulting flash-over nearly blew up the whole place. The French technicians brought in to advise the Israelis recommended pumping the containment full of concrete and welding the doors shut. The Israelis choose to proceed with a clean up even though it exposed their workers to dangerous radiation. However, the reactor could not be fully repaired because the structure was so loaded with neutrons. The only way Israel could develop a nuclear arsenal was to beg, borrow, and steal. Part of that was financed by sales of nuclear devices and materiel on the international black market.

      Their time is close at hand. Will you make sure to share this information so there enough people aware of the deceit, villainy, and treachery of tribal terrorist who have live among us. Victor Ostrovsky who wrote an expose’ on Mossad called them “sayanim”. They’re not really semitic, but they make such claims nevertheless.

    • bobbyalpy

      Fuck you Matt you great ass.

  • Ed Chan

    When are we going to arrest the war criminals?

    • whiteaglesoaring

      When you share this information above with all those you know and they’ve shared it with others, there will be enough people to turn loose more of the classified information needed to begin the arrests, indictments, and trials…if others do the same. Sit on it and you’re part of the problem.

    • bobbyalpy

      You’re not….ever:0)….what’s more is we’ll be kicking off another soon enough and you will not be stoping that one either.

    ‘“International law … would have required us to leave Saddam Hussein alone“, and this would have been morally unacceptable’.

    So Perle was prepared to admit that it is not only permissible, but necessary to disobey the law if the law is immoral. That has some interesting consequences for the US regime.

      The cruise missile used on the Pentagon on 9-11 was also stolen from the US inventory, launched from a Dolphin-class Israeli submarine offshore while the USN stood down.

      35 of 50 members of the Able Danger team investigating the theft of nukes from the US arsenal were killed when the cruise missile hit exactly that part of the Pentagon they were called to for an emergency briefing
      by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Myer, (who did not
      show up for the meeting and did not die.) hmmmm

    Their time is close at hand. All that is needed is for enough people to
    know that their country has been dishonored before the world, their jobs
    and investments evaporated, their economy decimated, their young people
    killed, maimed, psychologically raped, or genetically damaged for a
    bunch of dual-loyalty, Israel-firsters, committing treason for a nation
    that had used nukes made in Hanford WA, decommissioned in Amarillo TX
    and stolen by Israel with the help of Dick Cheney and other zionists,
    remanufactured and brought back to the US in diplomatic pouches, held at
    the Israeli embassy in NY, delivered to the Israeli employees of Urban Moving Systems
    that got started in business with a $478,000 loan from Small Business
    Administration, who loaded them into 5 vans that delivered them from Ft.
    Lee NJ to the parking lot of the WTC, parked them over the 3 Freon
    tanks buried there, and left them to explode and change the Freon to
    deuterium fluoride which amplified the power from around 1.5 kT to
    nearly 100 kT, based on tests that had been run on a mockup of the WTC
    at the Idaho National Laboratories.

    The Bush Crime Syndicate set the wheels in motion to depose Saddam and destroy his country, even though Saddam was a long-time CIA asset. People like UN inspector Scott Ritter repeatedly refuted the WMD claims of the neocons, as well as Susan Lindauer, CIA intel analyst. They were pushing against the winds of war, and got swept away. The nation was duped into this ill-fated adventure, and the blood of our families soaks the sands of Mesopotamia for no good reason.

    Where’s the source for the quote “To initiate a war of aggression, therefore, is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime….: All I can find is this website and this other one about the nazis. http://avalon.law.yale.edu/imt/judnazi.asp

  • bobbyalpy

    Lol…people.Much as you might stretch,much as you might try this war will never be declared illegal.Wether you choose to believe it or not we had at least two nations on the security council that agreed that Sadam had weapons.if they weren’t there a year later when we finally arrived…oh well.Years earlier Sadam had ACTUALY attempted to arrange the assassination of George H.W. Bush.That is a clear cut act of war and we had the right to act on that at any time.The Kurds who LOST NOT ONE AMERICAN TO IEDS OR ATTACKS IN THEIR ZONE,were fucking brutalized like chattel!They are perhaps the only Muslims in all the Middle East we could trust and that we felt kinship with.If you don’t see that we were within our rights not only to invade Iraq,but to kill that shit Sadam and grant relief to the kurds than you are stupid.THERE’S NO FIXING STUPID.Futhermore,The United States is a Sovreign nation and has full authority to make war as it pleases,against who it pleases and that is not done by referendum.In other words you do not get to vote on war.All you smug little peckerwoods are doing is going on and on about an issue that is already determined and that you have no power whatsoever to change.Not even the current president can alter the outcome.
