Former President George W. Bush as well as other members of his administration have been convicted in absentia of war crimes in Malaysia. This is the first time that something of this magnitude has occurred. Although Malaysia has been the only country to deliver a guilty verdict, they are hoping that more countries follow their example. In fact, former President George W. Bush canceled his trip to Switzerland, due to possibly being charged with war crimes. He can’t be arrested on American soil, so staying put seems the smartest decision at this point. If more countries vote the administration guilty of war crimes, then there would be no choice but to hold a trial and see if they would be convicted in the International court.
This past Friday, a five panel tribunal delivered a unanimous guilty verdict after a week long trial that, unsurprisingly, was not covered by American media. The witnesses included several ex-Guantanamo detainees that gave testimony on the conditions and human rights violations that were systematically carried out under orders of the Bush administration.
Former President Bush, Former Vice-President Dick Cheney, Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and the legal advisers Alberto Gonzales, David Addington, William Haynes, Jay Bybee and John Yoo that crafted the legal ‘justification’ for torture that basically said, ‘we can if we want to even if it’s illegal’ were the defendants. None were present, of course, but international war crime trials do not require the presence of the accused. The trial was run according to the standards set by the Nuremberg Trials to convict war criminals after World War II.
Professor Gurdial Singh Nijar, who headed the prosecution said, “The tribunal was very careful to adhere scrupulously to the regulations drawn up by the Nuremberg courts and the International Criminal Courts”.
President Lamin told a packed courtroom: “As a tribunal of conscience, the tribunal is fully aware that its verdict is merely declaratory in nature. The tribunal has no power of enforcement, no power to impose any custodial sentence on any one or more of the 8 convicted persons. What we can do, under Article 31 of Chapter VI of Part 2 of the Charter is to recommend to the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission to submit this finding of conviction by the tribunal, together with a record of these proceedings, to the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, as well as the United Nations and the Security Council.
The problem that I have with all of this, is not that Bush is getting in trouble, because I very much dislike the man, but rather that he is getting in trouble for doing the same thing that other countries are doing to our war prisoners. They are WAR prisoners and were intending on killing many of us. Why should we treat them with dignity and respect? Furthermore, would they treat US with the same respect we’re expected to give?

Whipped, forced to drink bleach and attacked with sex toy: Gang of seven tortured man for four days over rent payment
A married couple who were part of a gang which tortured a man for four days and forced him to drink bleach are facing jail.
The 21-year-old victim became so desperate to end his ordeal that he begged his seven captors to kill him following a row over rent payments.
He was also handcuffed, whipped with a wet cane and had salt rubbed in the wounds, ordered to strip to his underwear, and told to roll over with his legs in the air like a dog.
He finally resorted to stabbing himself five times, puncturing a lung, leading his captors to eventually call for an ambulance to the house in Crawley, West Sussex.
The fact that seven people participated in this disturbing incident is rather pathetic. The fact that many of them were in their late 30′s and early 40′s, just goes to show that they were worthless pieces of shit that shouldn’t have been allowed to live that long. Another thing that was mentioned was the fact that a 20-year-old guy, Scott Smith, not only filmed and humiliated the victim, but he also invited a 13-year-old to join in on the brutal attack.
Even more so, I highly doubt this had anything to do with rent, but was a rather great excuse in their minds to torture and humiliate someone other than themselves since they’re all probably use to being humiliated. I wish there was a way to torment the shit out of these people while in prison because the normal abuse will most likely be tame for these sick fucks. I mean, their victim had to stab himself, almost to death, just to stay alive. And honestly, I’m sure his plan was to kill himself so that the torture would end. Thankfully, he’s okay and the abusers are all either, in prison, or will be on their way shortly.
If you’re like me, this issue is far more important than we realized. Apparently around 80 beers that were previously used in restaurants as entertainment, are now being released back into the wild, after admitting they had a problem. Well, they didn’t admit it per se, but it did become quite obvious to those supplying the bears with booze (and the restaurants accountants I presume).
After reading more into this, I learned that Ukraine and America are much more similar than I had realized. Both have drunken citizens that find it hialrious to get animals intoxicated as well. The only difference is we couldn’t possibly find, tame, and then sit down in a restaurant with drunk bears, that shit’s just crazy! They’re scary enough while sober, I can’t imagine the terror they’d invoke while shitfaced. And, now, neither will Ukraine.
Ukrainians are being deprived of their entertainment because, as Environment Minister Mykola Zlochevsky put it, “How long can we tolerate animal torture in restaurants where drunken guests make bears drink vodka for laughs?”
We see where their devotion lies, the safety of animals and not with entertaining their countrymen. Way to screw that one up, Ukraine!
In case you haven’t been to Ukraine to see a drunk beer, or aren’t planning a trip before this form of entertainment (much like sacrifices) is gone forever, here:
