Südafrika: Friedensnobelpreisträger Tutu fordert Prozess gegen Bush und Blair in Den Haag

[Spiegel] Der Friedensnobelpreisträger Desmond Tutu fordert einen Strafprozess gegen George W. Bush und Tony Blair. In einer Zeitung wirft er den ehemaligen Machthabern vor, sie hätten den Irak-Krieg mit einer Lüge begründet. Blair spricht von einer "Fehlmeldung".

Why I had no choice but to spurn Tony Blair - I couldn't sit with someone who justified the invasion of Iraq with a lie
[Guardian] The immorality of the United States and Great Britain's decision to invade Iraq in 2003, premised on the lie that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction, has destabilised and polarised the world to a greater extent than any other conflict in history.

Instead of recognising that the world we lived in, with increasingly sophisticated communications, transportations and weapons systems necessitated sophisticated leadership that would bring the global family together, the then-leaders of the US and UK fabricated the grounds to behave like playground bullies and drive us further apart. They have driven us to the edge of a precipice where we now stand – with the spectre of Syria and Iran before us.

If leaders may lie, then who should tell the truth?
