It is completely obvious to all people of good faith that the government of the USA, and much of the oligarchy of the USA were culprit of activities punished by the Nuremberg Tribunal, when they committed in Iraq:
Crimes against peace:
(A) Planning, preparation, initiation or waging of a war of aggression or a war in violation of international treaties, agreements or assurances;
Participation in a common plan or conspiracy for the accomplishment of any of the acts mentioned under (A).
[Thanks Dominique Deux for the reminder.]
When the “Jihadists” of ISIS conquered Mosul, American made helicopters started to fly in their support. Obviously, they were piloted by ex-officers of Saddam Hussein’s army. Supporting the “Jihadist” army. Thus the present battle in Iraq is a direct counter-attack against the fascist dictatorship installed in Baghdad by Bush and his ilk. Bush’s war is going on. And the USA is not winning.
By brandishing the name “Bush”, for an aircraft carrier, the USA’s oligarchy has chosen to flaunt one of its plutocratic symbol: the Bush’s dynasty.
Yes, George Bush is now an American nuclear carrier: American carriers used to be named according to Revolutionary, or otherwise democratic battles (Yorktown, Lexington, Midway, etc.). Now the carriers are named after American plutocrats, and a pedigree involving collaboration Hitler (Bush), apparently even better, being president without election (Ford. Or is that for helping Hitler?) is best.
American plutocrats play very hard on the international scene.In their own interest. They don’t hesitate to impose internal American law worldwide. The same American law that makes the USA into the largest Tax Haven for Plutocrats, in the universe, by far.
See for a recent example the usage of American law against the giant European bank BNP. On June 5, Obama claimed that American justice was independent, and that it was not the case in other countries. Here is Obama, with characteristic Washington hypocrisy:
“I do not pick up the phone and tell the attorney general how to prosecute cases that have been brought. I do not push for settlements of cases that have been brought. Those are decisions that are made by an independent Department of Justice. Perhaps it is a different tradition than exists in other countries, but it is designed to make sure that the rule of law is not in any way impacted by political expediency.”
When U.S. attorneys make final decisions, Obama said, “I’ll read about it in the newspaper just like everybody else.”
However, in 2003, the violations of International Law by the oligarchy of the USA were extensive throughout the leading society of the USA. Media such as the New York Times fabricated evidence of Weapons of Mass Destruction.
Applying a country’s own law to violate International Law is grave.
The USA, in a revealing act, is sending the giant nuclear aircraft carrier “George Bush” into the Persian Gulf, in apparent support of Iran. George Bush! Got it? USA sends carrier USS Plutocrat to Persian Gulf! Guess what? American companies got the green light to prepare for sanction busting with Iran.
While BNP is sued for doing just that.
BNP: Indians, Red Skins, best when dead. American style Justice, in the highest, most efficient, free market tradition. Department of Justice and U.S. Cavalry, hand in hand.
American plutocrats, tax dodging USA corporations, plutocrats: good guys.
Principles of the Nuremberg Tribunal, 1950
Principles of International Law Recognized in the Charter of the Nuremberg Tribunal and in the Judgment of the Tribunal. Adopted by the International Law Commission of the United Nations, 1950.
Introductory note: Under General Assembly Resolution 177 (II), paragraph (a), the International Law Commission was directed to “formulate the principles of international law recognized in the Charter of the Nuremberg Tribunal and in the judgment of the Tribunal.”
Any person who commits an act which constitutes a crime under international law is responsible therefor and liable to punishment.
The fact that internal law does not impose a penalty for an act which constitutes a crime under international law does not relieve the person who committed the act from responsibility under international law.
The fact that a person who committed an act which constitutes a crime under international law acted as Head of State or responsible Government official does not relieve him from responsibility under international law.
The fact that a person acted pursuant to order of his Government or of a superior does not relieve him from responsibility under international law, provided a moral choice was in fact possible to him.
Any person charged with a crime under international law has the right to a fair trial on the facts and law.
The crimes hereinafter set out are punishable as crimes under; international law:
A) Crimes against peace:
1) Planning, preparation, initiation or waging of a war of aggression or a war in violation of international treaties, agreements or assurances;
2) Participation in a common plan or conspiracy for the accomplishment of any of the acts mentioned under (1)
B) War crimes: Violations of the laws or customs of war which include, but are not limited to, murder, ill-treatment or deportation to slave-labor or for any other purpose of civilian population of or in occupied territory, murder or ill treatment of prisoners of war, of persons on the seas, killing of hostages, plunder of public or private property, wanton destruction of cities, towns, or villages, or devastation not justified by military necessity.
C) Crimes against humanity: Murder, extermination, enslavement, deportation and other inhuman acts done against any civilian population, or persecutions on political, racial or religious grounds, when such acts are done or such persecutions are carried on in execution of or in connection with any crime against peace or any war crime.
Complicity in the commission of a crime against peace, a war crime, or a crime against humanity as set forth in Principles VI is a crime under international law.
AMERICAN “JUSTICE” IS A CRIMINAL ACCOMPLICE:
A large portion of the leading oligarchy of the USA committed the crimes in bold above, either in preparation, during, and consecutively to the invasion of Iraq.
Moreover the Department of Justice of the USA, that Obama’s mouth is so full of, is certainly, by not pursuing these crimes, an accomplice under the Nuremberg Trial principles, as described above.
IDIOCY IS NO EXCUSE FOR A WAR CRIME CONSPIRACY:
When Obama speaks about the independence of the Department of Justice, he sounds like someone who believes only idiots listen to him. Why does he think that President Kennedy made his own brother Attorney General? Because the oligarchy of the USA was, at the time, pervaded with various satanic principles, such as institutionalized racism (school, voting, laws), mixing it up with the mafia (as in Cuba), and a state solidly held by people who had enabled Nazism (such as the Dulles brothers, ex-employees of Bush, Harriman and company, who held State and the CIA).
Well, sorry, too much thinking is obviously against the best interest of Obama. Some are just obsessed by their skins, not the highest principles.
This is exactly why those with the highest principles have to come to the fore. Be it by just stating the obvious: by refusing to prosecute criminal individuals of the highest order, the USA is in danger of flaunting the highest criminality as the highest principle.
But what else to expect from a country that claims to be a democracy, while naming a carrier after a president nominated by Richard Nixon? What about the USS Al Capone, as we are at it?
Morality, often, albeit not always, wins. Or let’s say, it’s one of the largest weapons in any army’s arsenal. It could be a vile morality, such as the one of Saddam Hussein’s regime: it worked, better, for Iraq than the murderous chaos Bush replaced it with. Or it could be that Genghis Khan’s imposed on Mongolia, so efficient, wars were won, one after the other.
When Gbagbo, the Ivorian president, had turned into a bloody dictator, Mr. Obama, the one who does not interfere with Justice, so he claims when it’s convenient to him, proposed Gbagbo a golden exile in the USA, complete with “Visiting Professorships” (in the fully appropriate Plutocratic universities).
Bush is more than a vicious man, or a plutocrat. He has become a supremely hypocritical moral principle, and symbol, that plutocrats can get away with anything, including mass murder, and deliberate mass lying to wage a war of aggression. As long as Washington takes their orders.
(The evidence for mass lying is now to the fore: the head of British intelligence reported to PM Blair that Bush, as early as September 2011 wanted to attack Iraq, and was actively doctoring intelligence, thanks to “weasels“. The memo was published by the Times. So why is not Blair on trial?)
The problem is that infernal morality has no bearing on physics, or chemistry.
Along 1500 kilometers the Pacific coast of the USA, it was just announced that acidifying waters are dissolving the shells of tiny sea snails. War against the Earth: what could go wrong?
Why don’t we dissolve the fundamental cause of this, the plutocratic morality, instead? Judge Bush.
