Following the assassination of the Lebanese security chief in a car bombing and his funeral today protesters rallied outside Parliament at Martyr's Square to demand the resignation of the Lebanese government.


Different factions are now fighting each other with hand weapons and firebombs.

The Lebanese Army has been deployed and have fired on protesters with live ammunition and tear gas.  Army APCs and tanks are now rolling into square.  The Lebanese government is reportedly close to falling.

Ambulances are on the scene.

The Army now says as long as protesters protest peacefully they will be allowed to stay. 

The Lebanese government is blaming Syria for the assassination, violence.

Standoff between military and opposition supporters.

WAYNE MADSEN : CIA Continues to Influence Australian Politics

Obama's CIA scum need to be targeted for death worldwide; only after their extermination will justice be done for the murders they have committed  

Wayne Madsen Report
By Wayne Madsen
10/21/2012   

In 1975, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) organized a "constitutional coup" against Australian Labor Prime Minister Gough Whitlam. Langley used one of its old agents-of-influence, Governor-General Sir John Kerr, the representative of Queen Elizabeth II in Australia, to dismiss Whitlam's left-wing government and replace it with a pro-U.S. conservative government.


Ousted in CIA coup:  Kevin Rudd
In June 2010, CIA lightning struck twice in Australia when Australian Labor Prime Minister Kevin Rudd was ousted in a backroom coup engineered by the CIA's and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's favorite Australian politician, Rudd's deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard. Gillard became Prime Minister and Rudd was reduced in rank to Foreign Minister. Gillard, who is embroiled in a scandal involving the former parliamentary speaker Peter Slipper, survived a comeback challenge from Rudd last February.

Gillard arranged for Slipper, an independent who was lured over to the Labor coalition government, to become Speaker of the Australian parliament as a reward for his changeover. However, Slipper's assistant, James Ashby, who is openly gay, brought sexual harassment charges against Slipper. The case saw the release of some 200 text messages sent by Slipper that contain sexually explicit and vulgar passages. In one text message to Ashby, Slipper says female genitalia looks like "a mussel removed from its shell." In another Slipper writes Ashby, "Look at a bottle of mussel meat! Salty Cunts in brine! . . . Been to thw [sic] fish shop yet to buy the bottle of shell less mussells [sic]?"
There are also insinuations in Slipper's email that he was trying to engage in more than a professional relationship with Ashby. For example, Slipper wrote, "What I like bout you is your absolute honesty and openness. By comparison we politicians live in a closed secret world.''


Labrador-faced, CIA rug muncher Julia Gillard
Slipper resigned as Speaker but retains his seat in parliament as an independent. Meanwhile, conservative Leader of the opposition Tony Abbott has criticized Gillard, who in turn said the following of the opposition leader in Parliament, "The leader of the opposition says that people who hold sexist views and are misogynists are not appropriate for high office . . . Well, I hope the leader of the opposition is writing out his resignation because if he wants to know what misogyny looks like in modern Australia, he needs a mirror."

Abbott has made no secret of his dislike of Gillard and in parliament he stated that Gillard ensures control by ousting her enemies and replacing them with loyal subservients, for example, long-time Speaker of the House Harry Jenkins with Slipper and Rudd loyalists with Gillard supporters. 





Gillard, a self-proclaimed atheist, nevertheless, totally supports the theocratic Jewish state of Israel. Gillard, with the support of the Australian Labor Party's right-wing and its billionaire supporters, also supports the movement of U.S. military forces to the Asia-Pacific region and the establishment of new U.S. military bases in Darwin, Perth, the Cocos-Keeling) Islands, and other locations in the country. Gillard has initiated a program to move Australian Aborigines off their lands and into "hub centers" in order to free up their ancestral lands for mining and oil and natural gas drilling. Rudd also opposed the mining companies and their plans to displace Aborigines.


Gillard has also renewed deals to house boat refugees trying to enter Australia in squalid camps on Pacific islands such as Nauru and others in Papua New Guinea and other island chains. Like Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who has moved Canada closer to the British Crown, Gillard has revelled in the "glory days" of Australian troops fighting alongside British troops in defense of the British colonial empire.



Tuna anyone? Clinton and Gillard after "Girls Night Out"

Australia's election to a two-year seat on the UN Security Council will help to ensure that the neo-conservative U.S. foreign policy agenda will be advanced and that Palestinian interests will be ignored.

A few of the leaked U.S. State Department cables identify the role that the U.S. embassy in Canberra played in ousting Rudd and replacing him with the more pro-American Gillard. Rudd's Employment Participation Minister, Libyan-Australian Mark Arbib, was a frequent guest of the embassy where he passed along confidential information about the Cabinet in-fighting between the right-wing forces allied with Gillard and Rudd loyalists. It is just the kind of information that would have permitted the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA), with its massive surveillance capabilities in Australia, to target the e-mails, cell phone calls, and social networking communications of the involved Australian government parties and pass along the intelligence to Gillard and her loyalists. The Defense Signals Directorate (DSD) is NSA's counterpart in Australia. After Rudd's failed attempt to seize back power from Gillard last February, Arbib abruptly resigned from the government and the Senate.



The CIA owns Gillard, Australia, Australians
Senator Don Farrell, another right-wing Labor supporter of Gillard, met with a U.S. embassy official in June 2009, a year before the coup against Rudd, and informed the American about the plot to oust the Prime Minister. President Barack Obama, apparently did nothing to warn Rudd of the plot against him and there is every indication that the Obama administration, particularly Mrs. Clinton, was in Gillard's court. Farrell told the newspaper The Australian that he had more than one conversation with the U.S. embassy but said he couldn't recall the exact details of the conversations.

A U.S. embassy Canberra cable, dated December 23, 2009, describes the members of the right-wing New South Wales "praetorian guard" being courted by Rudd to forestall the coup by Gillard:

Rudd has unprecedented power for a Labor leader; one MP told us he had never seen a Labor Caucus as subservient to its leader, noting Rudd's control over promotions. Another told us she was surprised at marginal seat holders' acquiescence on the ETS. However, powerbrokers confide the factions will assert themselves when Rudd's popularity wanes. Possibly aware of this, Rudd in 2009 further courted New South Wales factional heavyweights Anthony Albanese (New South Wales Left) and Mark Arbib (New South Wales Right) and elevated Senator Joe Ludwig (Queensland Right - Swan's faction) to a more senior position in Cabinet. Ludwig is the son of powerful Queensland Right union official Bill Ludwig. One theory is that Rudd is developing a 'praetorian guard' based on the historically powerful New South Wales Right to head off any challenge from GILLARD; that it was no accident that Rudd promoted Arbib, Bowen and Clare (all from the New South Wales Right). Bitar, who is close to Arbib and succeeded him as New South Wales General Secretary, became ALP National Secretary in late 2008."

In fact, by promoting the New South Wales right, Rudd sealed his own fate in keeping his "friends close and enemies closer."

Another cable, dated July 27, 2009, describes a Melbourne U.S. Consulate meeting with a Gillard loyalist: "(SBU) Consul General met with Richard Marles, federal Member for Corio and Australia's new Parliamentary Secretary for Innovation and Industry on July 13. A rising star in the Australian Labor Party (ALP), we provide bio notes on this recently promoted Parliamentarian . . . Before his recent promotion, Marles served as the Chair of the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs, and was a member of the House of Representatives Employment and Workplace Relations Committee. He spoke highly of fellow leaders like Shorten and described having a close relationship with Deputy Prime Minister Julia GILLARD and a 'friendly' relationship with Kevin Rudd."

After Gillard's coup, Marles became the Parliamentary Secretary for Pacific Island Affairs and the Parliamentary Secretary for Foreign Affairs.

An embassy cable dated June 23, 2008, indicates that Gillard was being groomed during the Bush administration even though she had a political past in which she described herself as a "socialist" and a "feminist.":

"GILLARD THE PRO-AMERICAN


(C/NF) Although long appearing ambivalent about the Australia-US Alliance, GILLARD's actions since she became the Labor Party number two indicate an understanding of its importance. Poloffs had little contact with her when she was in opposition but since the election, GILLARD has gone out of her way to assist the Embassy. She attended a breakfast hosted by the Ambassador for U/S Nick Burns who visited Canberra just days after the election. At our request, she agreed to meet a visiting member of the National Labor Relations Board, after prior entreaties by the board member's Australian hosts had been rebuffed. GILLARD is now a regular attendee at the American Australian Leadership Dialogues (AALD), and will be the principal government representative to the AALD meeting in Washington at the end of June. (COMMENT: Although warm and engaging in her dealings with American diplomats, it's unclear whether this change in attitude reflects a mellowing of her views or an understanding of what she needs to do to become leader of the ALP. It is likely a combination of the two. Labor Party officials have told us that one lesson GILLARD took from the 2004 elections was that Australians will not elect a PM who is perceived to be anti-American. END COMMENT)

In a speech to the American Australian Leadership Dialogue (AALD) in 2008 in Washington, Gillard avidly supported the strengthening of the ANZUS military alliance between Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. Gillard, in a message to Labor Party leader Mark Latham, described the AALD as a "CIA re-education camp." Latham also revealed that Gillard told him that he should stand by for "emails explaining George Bush is a great statesman, torture is justified in many circumstances and those Iraqi insurgents should just get over it."

It is clear that Kevin Rudd was the second Australian Prime Minister ousted in a CIA coup and that Australia is an independent commonwealth in name only.

BREAKING : White House Now Denies Agreement on U.S., Iran Nuclear Talks

New York Times on the hook - will they call bullshit on Obama?   

Politico
By Jennifer Epstein
10/20/2012  7:15 PM EDT

The Obama administration is denying a report that the United States and Iran have agreed to one-on-one talks that could be a last-chance opportunity to avoid war over Iran's nuclear program.


Citing senior administration officials, The New York Times reported Sunday that Iranian officials have agreed to negotiations, but not until after the presidential election, so that they know whether they're negotiating with President Obama or Mitt Romney.

But National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor pushed back against the Times's story.

"It’s not true that the United States and Iran have agreed to one-on-one talks or any meeting after the American elections," he said in a statement.

"We continue to work with the P-5 on a diplomatic solution and have said from the outset that we would be prepared to meet bilaterally. The president has made clear that he will prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, and we will do what we must to achieve that," Vietor added. "It has always been our goal for sanctions to pressure Iran to come in line with its obligations. The onus is on the Iranians to do so, otherwise they will continue to face crippling sanctions and increased pressure."

The Times report came barely more than 48 hours ahead of the third and final presidential debate, which will focus on foreign policy. Signs that Iran is willing to negotiate on its nuclear program could be helpful to Obama, who has long favored a diplomatic resolution to tensions with Iran and has implemented new sanctions aimed at forcing Tehran into negotiations.

U.S. Aircraft Carrier Cruises disputed Asian Seas

Insane Obama in effort to enhance "tough guy" image with brain-dead, death-cult American voters may just provoke China into attacking, sparking WWIII; the real joke is on U.S. idiot voters, who will get the same mayhem and destruction regardless of who is elected   

Associated Press

ON BOARD THE USS GEORGE WASHINGTON (AP) —
A U.S. aircraft carrier group cruised through the disputed South China Sea on Saturday in a show of American power in waters that are fast becoming a focal point of Washington's strategic rivalry with Beijing.
China navy now state of the art, capable of doing massive damage
Vietnamese security and government officials were flown onto the nuclear-powered USS George Washington ship, underlining the burgeoning military relationship between the former enemies. A small number of journalists were also invited to witness the display of maritime might in the oil-rich waters, which are home to islands disputed between China and the other smaller Asian nations facing the sea.

The visit will likely reassure Vietnam and the Philippines of American support but could annoy China, whose growing economic and naval strength is leading to a greater assertiveness in pressing its claims there. The United States is building closer economic and military alliances with Vietnam and other nations in the region as part of a "pivot" away from the Middle East to Asia, a shift in large part meant to counter rising Chinese influence.

The Vietnamese officials took photos of F-18 fighter jets taking off and landing on the ship's 1,000-foot- (305-meter-) long flight deck, met the captain and toured the hulking ship, which has more than 5,000 sailors on board.
Deluded loser, coward Obama does not care if he starts WWIII - as long as he stays in power

The mission came a day after Beijing staged military exercises near islands in the nearby East China Sea it disputes with U.S ally Japan. Those tensions have flared in recent days.

China claims nearly all of the South China Sea, where the U.S. says it has a national interest in ensuring freedom of navigation in an area crossed by vital shipping lanes. Vietnam, the Philippines and several other Asian nations also claim parts of the sea. The disputes attracted little international interest until the late 1990s, when surveys indicated possible large oil reserves. American rivalry with China has given the disputes an extra dimension in recent years.
Obama thinks he can challenge China in it's own back yard and get away with it:  Chinese will hand any U.S. fleet it's ass in short order causing thousands of U.S. casualties

The U.S. Navy regularly patrols the Asia-Pacific region, conducting joint exercises with its allies and training in the strategic region. The trip by the George Washington off the coast of Vietnam is its third in as many years. A second aircraft carrier, the USS John C. Stennis, has also conducting operations in the western Pacific region recently, according to the U.S. Pacific Fleet.

Capt. Gregory Fenton said the mission was aimed in part at improving relations with Vietnam and ensuring the U.S. had free passage in the South China Sea.
Obama a deluded, power mad, frightened little boy who's cowardice and abject egotistical stupidity will cost America in the end

China's military buildup, including the launch of its own carrier last year and rapid development of ballistic missiles and cyber warfare capabilities, could potentially crimp the U.S. forces' freedom to operate in the waters. The United States doesn't publicly take sides in the territorial disputes among China and its neighbors.

"It is our goal to see the region's nations figure out these tensions ... on their own, our role of that to date is to conduct freedom of navigation exercises within international waters," Fenton said in an interview on the bridge.
The Chinese will not take one ounce of shit from Obama or his fascist criminal followers, and have stated so publicly on several occasions

Although claimant countries have pledged to settle the territorial rifts peacefully, the disputes have erupted in violence in the past, including in 1988 when China and Vietnam clashed in the Spratly Islands in a confrontation that killed 64 Vietnamese soldiers. Many fear the disputes could become Asia's next flash point for armed conflict.

Vietnam is pleased to accept help from its one-time foe America as a hedge against its giant neighbor China, with which it also tries to maintain good relations.

Still, the Hanoi government reacted angrily to recent moves by Beijing to establish a garrison on one of the Paracel islands, which Vietnam claims. The United States also criticized the move by Beijing, earning it a rebuke from the government there.

"China will take this (cruise) as another expression by the United States of its desire to maintain regional domination," said Denny Roy, a senior fellow at the East-West Center in Hawaii. "The U.S also wants to send a message to the region that it is here for the long haul ... and that it wants to back up international law."

While most analysts believe military confrontation in the waters is highly unlikely anytime soon, they say tensions are likely to increase as China continues pressing its claims and building its navy.

U.S. Committing Holocaust for Regime Change in Iran : Analyst

Murdering scumbag Obama does not care who he kills - as long as he gets the votes:  Americans also responsible as their taxpayer money used to finance innocent children deaths in Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan; if the shoe fits, have the balls to wear it   

PRESS TV
10/20/2012

A prominent political analyst says the US-led sanctions against the Islamic Republic are “jeopardizing the lives of millions of patients” in Iran by trying to achieve the “grand delusion” of installing a pro-West regime in the country.


These Iranian children are victims of Obama's sanctions
“The US-led sanctions against the Islamic Republic which directly and painfully target the population have created an inconceivable situation for those whose very lives depend on the medicine adversely affected by these barbaric sanctions,” Iranian author and Middle East expert Dr. Ismail Salami wrote on the Press TV website.

“The sheer idea of imposing illegal sanctions against the Islamic Republic and jeopardizing the lives of millions of patients is indeed an act of brutality which runs counter to the very true spirit of humanity as well as to international humanitarian laws,” he added.
Citing a recent article published in a leading US daily, Salami said the West is “sharply aware of the devastating inhuman effects” of the sanctions on the sick people in Iran.

The Washington Post article, titled ‘Iran, Sanctions Take Toll on the Sick’, details how drug shortages are particularly affecting “cancer patients and those being treated for complex disorders such as hemophilia, multiple sclerosis and thalassemia, as well as transplant and kidney dialysis patients."


Murdering psychopath Clinton responsible for Iran children's deaths
In a letter to the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in August, Fatemeh Hashemi, head of Iran's Charity Foundation for Special Diseases, called for UN action to prevent the sanction-induced damages to six million Iranian patients suffering from such intractable diseases as thalassemia, hemophilia, kidney conditions, multiple sclerosis (MS), cancer, etc.

“Although medicine is not included in the list of the sanctions, the aftermaths of the sanctions, the impossibility of transferring money through the banks as well as the appalling atmosphere created thus has cast its cumbersome shadow upon medicine and healthcare in Iran and has austerely affected the import of medicines in the country. As the head of an institute dealing with the lives of six million patients, I hereby implore you to exert all your endeavors to champion human rights in lifting the sanctions as they are political in nature and prove to the inexcusable detriment of the patients in Iran,” Hashemi said.

"We feel the shortage mainly for cancer and MS drugs. Of course, thalassemia and dialysis patients are also the targets of these hardships. All these problems stem from the sanctions the US has imposed on the banking sector and the difficulties in transferring foreign currency," she added.


Obama dreaming up new ways to kill Iranian children
In an October report to the UN General Assembly, Ban warned that the Western embargoes against Iran have mainly targeted the livelihood of the ordinary Iranian population.

“The sanctions imposed on the Islamic Republic of Iran have had significant effects on the general population, including an escalation in inflation, a rise in commodities and energy costs, an increase in the rate of unemployment and a shortage of necessary items, including medicine," the UN chief said on October 6.

In a recent speech, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei blasted the illogical Western sanctions as “barbaric” and described them as a war against a nation.

“The West is angry and they have used Iran’s nuclear energy program as a pretext [to impose sanctions]. They claim that they will lift the sanctions if Iran backs down on its right to nuclear energy. They are lying. Out of spite and revenge, they decide to impose illogical sanctions against Iran,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

The illegal US-led sanctions against the Islamic Republic are based on the unfounded allegation that Iran is pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program.

Iran rejects the allegations and argues that as a committed signatory to Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of International Atomic Energy Agency, it has the right to use nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.


Trailing in polls behind spastic Romney, Obama now attempting to enhance "tough guy" image with psycho American redneck voters using the dead bodies of children in Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan

“The West is well aware that Iran has never sought a nuclear weapons program, nor does it ever wish to do so. However, they appear to be incapable of finding a better excuse than Iran’s nuclear energy program to go ahead with their barbaric sanctions with the ultimate goal of installing a US-friendly regime in the country,” Salami said.

He added that the “grand delusion entertained by the US officials [for regime change in Iran] indicates how very removed from reality the Washington officials are and how infernally adamant they are on bringing about this change at whatever cost, even the lives of millions of people.”

“In cahoots with the US, the West is willingly or unwillingly exterminating the Iranian patients through these illegal sanctions. Indeed, they will be held accountable for the human loss they are inflicting upon the Iranian nation: surely, the eyes of God are watching them and they are held in divine abhorrence.”

Human Rights Violations Rising in U.S.

Decent, moral, Patriot Americans need to leave in order to have the option of fighting another day; the war for the soul of the U.S. has been lost... for now   

PRESS TV
10/20/2012

The United States has one of the worst human rights records in the world, according to a report by Russia’s Foreign Ministry.


Obama's corporate killer pigs now completely out of control
The report, which the ministry has submitted to the lower house of Russian State Duma for deliberations, denounced the US for its dismal human rights record, citing child molestation, invasion of privacy, police brutality and restrictions on the freedom of expression.

The report noted that “hundreds of thousands of children” are maltreated in the US every year, which has led to 1,600 deaths in 2010 alone.

“About one police officer in 100 has been involved in criminal abuses, including sexual harassment, indecent behavior or rape,” it said.

“The US remains the country with the largest prison population in the world - 2.2 million,” the report underlined.

The Russian report also criticized a US legislation authorizing “special services” to keep tabs on all private electronic messages without any judicial order.


Coward Oakland pigs targeted U.S. Marine Scott Olsen and Marines in general as potential leadership threats and quickly backed down when Marines threatened to destroy them if attacked again or innocent civilians harmed

Press TV has conducted an interview with Paul Larudee, political commentator, to further discuss the issue.

The following is an approximate transcript of the interview.

Press TV:  Police brutality, secret rendition programs, breach of privacy, restrictions to freedom of expression this is merely the tip of the iceberg because Russia right now is only focusing on what is taking place on American soil. Do you agree with this assessment?

Larudee:  Actually the points that you are citing are the most dramatic aspects of US human rights violations and actually I would say that they are pretty well-known not so much necessarily in the United States where to a large extent they are not even believed but certainly in the world they are but it goes much beyond that because the United States is planning for the Utah Data Center which is a small town actually devoted entirely to the gathering of data and surveillance on mostly American citizens but on people around the world and it is designed to create the possibility of knowing what everyone does at virtually every moment of their lives through their electronic activities which can be as simple as using a bank card.


Coward U.S. corporate pigs now using terror tactics learned from Israeli trainers
 
But what they do with people when they find them doing something that they consider suspicious is terrible and we cannot depend on the law to defend us anywhere in the world. Of course, the United States acts outside the law as well in the cases of extraordinary rendition that you are talking about but even within the law they make up the law sometimes as they go along and really what we need is political action in groups to band together in order to defend ourselves which is what is happening now in the United States, it is not we don’t depend on law, the role of law anymore.

Press TV:  Well I will come back to that, but not only all these go against the US constitution but is also calling to question the moral high ground that the US takes when it comes to human rights now doesn’t it?

Larudee:  I have to say that the moral high ground of the states is something upon myth. When the United States dominated the world economy and consisted 50 percent of the world economy just after World War II it had few serious enemies and therefore it could allow itself the luxury of not worrying about threats. Now it worries about threats everywhere because it is on the decline and therefore I think this is one of the reasons that human rights violation are on the rise in the United States.

Press TV:  Last year we saw the start of the Occupied Movement which sort of was a grassroots movement to stand up against this very injustices that are taking place in the US, the government going against the US constitution and taking back American rights bit by bit but many argue that the US has become a police state. Is there any hope considering that on an international arena the US simply is not adhering to any calls?

Larudee:  Well in fact you put your finger on it. The United States has by far the largest incarceration rate of any county in the world has more than 2 million people behind bars, many of them for political reasons.


Drug and steroid addled coward Oakland pigs destroy, loot Occupy camp

 But the Occupy Movement indicates that you can push people only so far that the United States in its entire history has never had a general strike throughout the country the way you have in other countries France and Italy and Spain and others, the people have banded together and done this.

That hasn’t yet happened but the Occupy Movement was a step in that direction and even though in many cases the Occupy Movement is not focused as times get more difficult and as the sides begin, the authorities begin to wage war on a more massive scale with an increasingly impoverished population, I think you are going to see real serious resistance in the United States and you are going to see the creation of ...or a lot of people have accused it of being fascist but I think that pales by comparison with what we will eventually see here.

A prominent international lawyer says former U.S. President George W. Bush, and former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair stand guilty of crimes against peace, war crimes and torture, Press TV reports.


Bush attempts to cover Blair with phoney "Peace Medal"
In November 2011, the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal, in which Francis Boyle, a professor of international law at the University of Illinois, led the prosecution team, convicted Bush and Blair of crimes against peace and humanity, and genocide over their roles in the Iraq war.

On May 11, 2012, the tribunal also found Bush, former US Vice President Dick Cheney and former US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld guilty of the crime of torture.

“We will keep after Bush and Blair for sure for crimes against peace, war crimes and torture in general,” Boyle told Press TV in a recent interview.

“We got them both convicted of a Nuremberg crime against peace,” he added while referring to the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 and the principles of international law recognized in the Charter of the Nuremberg Tribunal.

According to Principles of the Nuremberg Tribunal, planning, preparation, initiation or waging of a war of aggression or a war in violation of international treaties, agreements or assurances are crimes “punishable” under international law.


Rice and Cheney will be joining Bush and Blair in the dock at the Hague for their War Crimes trials

In September, Archbishop Desmond Tutu said Blair and Bush should be taken to the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague over their roles in the Iraq war.

“We are making efforts now to do this,” Boyle stated, adding, “We tried to get Bush in Switzerland, but his lawyers advised him not to go to Switzerland. I tried three times to get Bush in Canada, but unfortunately the Canadian government protected Bush.”


So will Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Franks, Powell, Perle, Petraeus, Perino and the rest of Bush's criminal administration

“The wheels of justice might turn slowly, but they do turn.”

Boyle also criticized the ICC for its failure to bring to justice US, UK and Israeli criminals.

“So far, they are just going after black thugs from Africa and not dealing with this wholesale mass murderers and criminals from the United States, Britain and Israel,” he said.

Boyle condemned the Israeli regime for “inflicting outright genocide on the Palestinians in Gaza,” adding that there will be hearings in November in Malaysia on the issue of Palestine.
