October 24, 2007 62nd Anniversary of the UN; UN General Assembly Must Act to Set up an International Tribunal to Try the Bush Regime

PEJ News
While hopefully the numerous campaigns to impeach President Bush, and Vice President Cheney will be successful, the Bush Regime still must be judged by an International Tribunal set up by the United Nations General Assembly. Only when the United Nations General Assembly which embodies the principle of the sovereign equality of States and true multilateralism, demonstrates that it is prepared to speak truth to power, will the United Nations receive the global respect that the United Nations disserves.

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 Statute should be modeled upon the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, which the United States supported at the U.N. Security Council, so as a matter of law it is unobjectionable.
3. There should be added to the ICTY Statute an additional crime of Crime 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 war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide against the Peoples of
5. The establishment of ICTU would provide some small degree of justice to the victims of U.S. war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide against the Peoples of
6. Furthermore, the establishment of ICTU by the U.N. General Assembly would serve as a deterrent effect upon U.S. leaders such PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH, VICE-PRESIDENT DICK CHENEY, SECRETARY OF STATE CONDOLEEZZA RICE, FORMER SECRETARY OF DEFENSE DONALD RUMSFELD AND FORMER ATTORNEY GENERAL ALBERTO GONZALES members of Congress as well as top generals that they will be prosecuted for their further infliction of international crimes against Iraq.
7. Without such a deterrent, the U.S. administration along with the U.S. Congress might be emboldened to attack other states such as Iran.

[* 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].
