Tenth Anniversary of the invasion of Iraq:An international tribunal set up by the UN General Assembly must finally  to try  the  Bush Regime

 
versions of the petition are after the English [on the petition site The French and Spsnish has to be edited- the correct version is in this posting}
 
 

In Canada, on March 17,  2011 rather than arresting Bush as a war criminal, the police arrested a citizen calling for Bush to be put on trial. John Boncore (Splitting the Sky)  who died recently attempted to arrest Bush in Vancouver; John was arrested  but Bush continues to jet set around the world on speaking tours

 

Over the years, the United States has supported the setting up, by the United Nations, of tribunals to judge leaders of other states. To avoid, the perception of Bias, the United Nations General Assembly must be prepared to invoke Article 22 of the Charter of the United Nations, to set up an International Tribunal to try the Bush Regime. No state or state leader is above the rule of international law, particularly those states justifying aggression on the grounds of self-defence, under Article 51 of the UN Charter, or of preventive/pre-emptive aggression.


While the numerous campaigns to impeach Bush had unfortunately was unsuccessful, and while attempts have been made to arrest Bush under various National laws has, up to this point have  failed, the Bush regime still must be judged, by the international community, for war crimes, crimes against the peace, and crimes against humanity. A Petition to UN General Assembly to set up International Tribunal to try the Bush regime has been circulated widely. Previously, on March 8, 2007 on International Women’s day, the Petition to the UN General Assembly was submitted, in the six UN official languages, to the former President of the UN General Assembly. 
“If the real justice is in order, people like George Bush who are committing crimes throughout the world should be put on trial. (March 8, 2009).”

On March 8, 2007 on International Women’s day, the following Petition to the UN General Assembly was submitted, in the UN official languages, to the President of the UN General Assembly. During the week of March 5-9, the petition was discussed with representatives of delegations or NGOs from over seventy member states of the United Nations, and it was distributed widely. Prior to March 5, the petition, in the UN official languages, was personally sent in the appropriate language to Ambassadors at the UN missions in New York.


The petition in English, French and Spanish follows:

ENGLISH PETITION TO THE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY TO SET UP AN INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL TRIBUNAL TO TRY PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH, VICE-PRESIDENT DICK CHENEY, FORMER SECRETARY OF DEFENSE DONALD RUMSFELD, SECRETARY OF STATE CONDOLEEZZA RICE, AND ATTORNEY GENERAL ALBERTO GONZALES

1. The U.N. General Assembly has the authority to set up such a tribunal by a majority vote as a “subsidiary organ” under U.N. Charter Article 22.
2. The United States has supported the U.N. Security Council setting up Tribunals against other state leaders, so as a matter of law it is unobjectionable.
3. The Bush Regime is guilty of Crimes Against Peace, as defined by the Nuremberg Charter (1945), the Nuremberg Judgment (1946), and the Nuremberg Principles (1950), and as codified by U.S. Army Field Manual 27-10 (1956) paragraph 498.
4. The purpose of the ICTU (International Criminal Tribunal against the United States under the Bush regime) would be to investigate and prosecute United States regime under George W. Bush for war crimes, crimes against humanity and against the Peoples of Iraq
5. The establishment of ICTU would provide some small degree of justice to the victims of U.S. war crimes, crimes against humanity and against the Peoples of Iraq
6. Furthermore, the establishment of ICTU by the U.N. General Assembly would serve as a deterrent effect upon U.S. leaders, and members of Congress as well as top generals that they will be prosecuted for further infliction of international crimes against Iraq, Afghanistan and other states.
7. Without such a deterrent, the U.S. administration along with the U.S. Congress, and their allies might be continue to be prepared to attack other states
[* Since the USA has refused to become a party to the Rome Statute for the International Criminal Court, this is the only effective legal redress the rest of the world has against US Officials.]



This petition should be sent to president or prime minister of your state

ESPANOL

PETICIÓN A LA ASAMBLEA GENERAL DE LAS NACIONES UNIDAS PARA ESTABLECER UN TRIBUNAL INTERNACIONAL CRIMINAL PARA LLEVAR A JUICIO A GEORGE W. BUSH, PRESIDENTE; DICK CHENEY, VICE-PRESIDENTE; DONALD RUMSFELD, EX SECRETARIO DE DEFENSA; CONDOLEEZZA RICE, SECRETARIA DE ESTADO; Y, ALBERTO GONZALES, FISCAL GENERAL.

1. La Asamblea General de las Naciones Unidas tiene la autoridad de establecer dicho tribunal por un voto en mayoría como un "órgano subsidiario" bajo la carta de las Naciones Unidas, artículo 22.
2. Como los estados unidos han supportado otros tribunales contra otros estados, por tanto, es irrefutable como materia de ley.
3. Al Estatuto del ICTU debe agregársele el crimen adicional de Crímen Contra la Paz, tal como está definido en la Carta de Nurenberg (1945), el Juicio de Nurenberg (1946) y los Principio de Nurenberg (1950), y tal como está contemplado en el Manual de Campo 27-10 de la Armada de los Estados Unidos (1956) en su parágrafo 498.
4. El propósito del Tribunal Criminal Internacional contra los Estados Unidos bajo el régimen de George W. Bush (ICTU por sus siglas en inglés) sería el investigar y llevar a juicio al Gobierno de los Estados Unidos por sus crímenes de guerra, crímenes contra la humanidad y contra de la población de Irak
5. El establecimiento del ICTU proveería algún grado de justicia a las víctimas de los crímenes de guerra perpetrados por los Estados Unidos, los crímenes contra la humanidad y econtra la población de Irak
6. Adicionalmente, el establecimiento del ICTU por la Asamblea General de la ONU serviría de escarmiento a los actuales líderes de los Estados Unidos, que junto a miembros del Congreso y generales al mando, y otros estados estarían al tanto de que serían juzgados por su recurrente perpetración de crímenes internacionales
7. Sin tal escarmiento, la administración de los Estados Unidos junto con su Congreso puede y otros estados estar incitada a perpetrar ataques contra otros países

* Como los Estados Unidos de América rechazó ser parte del Estatuto de Roma para la Corte Internacional, esta es la única vía legal que el resto del mundo tiene para corregir las acciones de los oficiales de los Estados Unidos



Esta petición debe ser enviado a sus estados

FRANCAIS

PÉTITION DESTINÉE À L’ASSEMBLÉE GÉNÉRALE DES NATIONS UNIES POUR L’INSTAURATION D’UN TRIBUNAL PÉNAL INTERNATIONAL VISANT À INSTRUIRE LE PROCÈS DU PRÉSIDENT GEORGE BUSH, DU VICE-PRÉSIDENT DICK CHENEY, L’ANCIEN SECRÉTAIRE À LA DÉFENSE DONALD RUMSFELD, DE LA SECRÉTAIRE D’ÉTAT CONDOLEEZZA RICE ET DU PROCUREUR GÉNÉRAL ALBERTO GONZALES.

1. Selon l’article 22 de la Charte des Nations Unies, l’Assemblée générale peut créer, suivant un vote majoritaire, les organes subsidiaires qu'elle juge nécessaires à l'exercice de ses fonctions.

2. Como les États-Unis ont donné leur appui par tribual pour juger autres etats, au sens de la loi, on ne peut s’objecter à ce Tribunal.

3. Il faudrait ajouter au statut du TPIE un crime contre la paix, tel que celui-ci est défini par la Charte de Nuremberg (1945), par le Jugement de Nuremberg (1946), par les Principes de Nuremberg (1950) et l’article 27-10, paragraphe 498 de l’US Army Field Manual (1956).

4. Le but du Tribunal pénal international contre les États-Unis sous l’administration Bush (TPIE) serait d’enquêter sur les crimes de guerre, les crimes contre l’humanité et le contre les peuples d’Irak et de les traduire en justice

5. La création d’un TPIE rendrait à très petite échelle — justice aux victimes des crimes de guerre, des crimes contre l’humanité et des génocides perpétrés par les Américains contre les peuples d’Irak

6. De plus, la création d’un TPIE par l’Assemblée générale des Nations Unies aurait un effet dissuasif à l’égard des dirigeants américains, y les membres du Congrès ainsi que les hauts généraux, et aussi autres etats; ils sauront qu’ils pourraient être jugés s’ils commettent d’autres crimes en autres pays.

7. Sans un tel effet dissuasif, l’administration américaine de concert avec le Congrès, et autres etats pourraint se sentir autorisés à attaquer d’autres États


* Étant donné le refus des États-Unis d’Amérique de devenir membres du Statut de Rome de la cour pénale internationale, la création d’un TPIE constitue l’unique recours légal et efficace que détient le reste du monde contre les dirigeants américains.

Prière de faire parvenir un exemplaire au Président ou Premier ministre de votre pays.
