father of dead soldier says Blair "is a war criminal"
Richard Green (father of helicopter pilot Philip Green killed in a crash) admitted he felt highly emotional about Tony Blair's presence at the service.


quote:

"I think he's a war criminal, it's as simple as that. The man, without any consideration to the Labour parliamentary party, elected to go to war with this scabby little friend in Texas (Dictator Bush), and killed 51 of our men unnecessarily," he said. "If I have a chance to meet him on Friday, I will tell him to his face."

1. Yes, 51 British, hundreds of US, and
why does everyone forget about the thousands of Iraqis who were killed? Bush and Blair are war criminals, in my opinion, with respect to international law as it now stands. Another example, the Geneva convention does not allow bombing dozens of civilians in order to kill one or two bad guys. In dozens of such cases during the bombing of Iraq, Dick Cheney was asked for permission to do so, and every single time he said yes. Not once did this freak believe that innocent lives were worth saving.
