The Epic Crime That Dares Not Speak Its Name

Pilger is on the nail head once again here.
The RAF man refusing to go along with a war of aggression may yet be the only way forward in the persuit of Blair.

If he wins his right to refuse the military will all have to refuse to go on co-operating with this Government in fighting in Iraq. Then the Government of Blair must surely fall.

The rats who went along with his conspiracy will be falling over each other to be first off the sinking ship.

The Epic Crime That Dares Not Speak Its Name: "The question of legality deeply concerns the British military brass, who sought Tony Blair's assurance on the eve of the invasion, got it and, as they now know, were lied to. They are right to worry; Britain is a signatory to the treaty that set up the International Criminal Court, which draws its codes from the Geneva Conventions and the 1945 Nuremberg Charter. The latter is clear: 'To initiate a war of aggression... is not only an international crime, it is the supreme international crime, differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.'
