    That was the reason they killed Saddam Hussein, Bush and Blair have done the same or even worse atrocities than him, so why haven't they been accused or executed?

    Because they haven't been killed by their enemies. How else would they be killed? By their own people? Not that Blair should be compared to Bush at all.

    Because calling a war illegal and branding someone a war criminal because you disagree with a war is not directly interchangable with law?

    Since when did Blair/Bush embark of a campaign of religious suppression, rigging elections, using a stasi-esque force who tortured those who vast amounts of people for the slightest of reasons etc? I don't remember Blair trying to send troops into Mayfair or Bush trying to have a Democratic state expelled from the union...


    Judging by the sudden appearence of 3 neg reps in a very short space of time I imagine someone alerted Stop the War that there was a dissenting opinion?

    Bush and Blair gave the go ahead on an illegal war which killed over a million people, of which about 90% were civillians. They say they're helping Iraq yet several years later Iraq is still in turmoil with death and destruction everywhere.
    And didn't America help Saddam Hussein supplying him with money and weapons in the 90's for their own cause, yet when America wanted to get cheaper oil they turned on him saying he is a dictator, murderer etc. Couldn't they see that whilst they were helping him?

    Your history is shockingly awful. Bush was president from 2001 onwards so I struggle to see how he personally supplied weapons. His father was President from 1989-1993 and went to war with Iraq so I don't seem much support there either. Maybe you're thinking of Reagan in the 1980s? Either way, neither should be executed.

    Because execution is inhumane, thus an execution would defeat its own purpose.

    Personally I blame the people who voted for Blair and Bush into power. So they are partly responsible for the atrocities in Iraq and Afganistan.
