Bush, Blair, Obama, And Cameron Are The War Criminals!

THAT the chief prosecutor at the International Criminal Court (ICC) is seeking arrest warrants against Libyan leader Muammar Gadaffi, his son and his brother-in-law, on charges of committing war crimes raises bourgeois cynicism to new heights.

It shows the masses of the world that this Court is just another fake bourgeois institution for promoting the struggle of the US, UK and EU capitalists against those nations whose natural resources they covet and whose people they wish to enslave.

Once again the victim is the criminal while the terrorist capitalist states, that are about to smash the entire Libyan infrastructure, are the liberators, the heroes of capitalism.

After their ‘democratic’ mass murder of the Iraqi people and the Afghan people, Bush, Obama, Blair, Brown and Cameron, the political leaders, plus their military facilitators, are not only free, but have been showered with honours and money as a reward for their butchery.

That the victim should once more be sought by the highest bourgeois court, at the behest of the executioners, will only cause massive anger all over the world, and with it many more supporters for the liberation struggle of the Libyan and other peoples.

In the case of Libya it is crystal clear who is daily raining bombs and missiles down, killing hundreds if not thousands of innocent men, women and children. It is most certainly not Gadaffi.

In Iraq, even before the illegal invasion of that country by US and British imperialist troops, it is conservatively estimated that over half a million Iraqi children died as a direct result of the sanctions applied against that country since 1990.

In the words of Madeleine Albright, a US Secretary of State of the period, this death toll was deemed ‘a price worth paying’ to get rid of Saddam.

Today, her successors consider that a sea of Libyan corpses would be a price worth paying for getting rid of Gadaffi.

The invasion of Iraq in 2003 was achieved by a massive ‘shock and awe’ bombing and missile campaign against a virtually defenceless country, resulting in hundreds of thousands of civilian deaths.

Under the occupation atrocities committed by US and British troops were a regular occurrence.

George Bush and Tony Blair, who lied about weapons of mass destruction to cover their murderous tracks, face no charges from the ICC. The US does not even recognise the ICC.

Far from facing a jury, Bush whiles away his time on his luxury ranch while Blair is made a ‘peace envoy to the Middle East’, another milestone for bourgeois cynicism.

The issue is that the real war criminals must be put on trial, and the criminal system that they serve and which breeds them as its servants must also be put in the dock, and sentence duly carried out.

The only court that will judge them and deliver a sentence worthy of the crime is the court of the world socialist revolution.

This is now developing at a tremendous speed in every continent.

The way to deal with the war criminals, and the criminal capitalist system that breeds them, is through building sections of the International Committee of the Fourth International in every country, capable of leading the world socialist revolution to its victory.

This victory will expropriate the world’s pirates, the bankers and capitalists of the planet, and bring in a planned world-wide socialist economy that will be developed to satisfy people’s needs, and will put an end to the law of the jungle that is capitalism, and to the atrocities that make up its daily life.
