Archbishop Desmond Tutu: George Bush, Tony Blair Should Be Tried for War Crimes

For the invasion of Iraq, which the Nobel peace prize laureate also says could have triggered the civil war in Syria and cause a wider conflict with Iran. No word on the current U.S. president


Archbishop Desmond Tutu has called for Tony Blair and George Bush to be hauled before the international criminal court in The Hague and delivered a damning critique of the physical and moral devastation caused by the Iraq war.

Tutu, a Nobel peace prize winner and hero of the anti-apartheid movement, accuses the former British and US leaders of lying about weapons of mass destruction and says the invasion left the world more destabilised and divided "than any other conflict in history".
