Serbia has handed over its Bosnian Serb Commander Radovan Karadžić to International Criminal Tribunal on charges of genocide under perhaps European Union’s pessure. When will President Bush be tried for the war crimes commited under his leadership in Iraq, Afghanistan, and at the Guantánamo Naval Base ?
Mr. Bush himself has acknowledged that after the U. S. invasion of Iraq no weapons of mass destruction were found, and there was no evidence that Saddam Hussein was linked to the September 11 attacks. Similarly, in February 2006 the United Nations Commission on Human Rights issued a report saying that the detention facility in the Guantánamo Bay should be closed down and the excessive force against the detainees amounted to torture.
Thousands of innocent people have suffered in the haphazard air-strikes in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan’s tribal areas during the unsuccessful American attempts at taming the Al-Quaeda. Ironically, the so-called civilized worlds fail to see their own “democratic autocractism” that has only pesuaded even more extremism arouond the globe.
