It turns out that Tony Blair came close to being indicted for war crimes.

Taken from the above article it states;

While on a speaking engagement in Malaysia organized by "Success Resources Company", former British Prime Minister Tony Blair was the object of an articulate protest movement demanding his indictment for war crimes.

This was no ordinary protest. Tony Blair has been accused of war crimes in a legal initiative led by the country's former Prime Minister, Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.

A War Crimes Tribunal as well as a War Crimes Commission were setup integrated by renowned jurists. Documentary evidence of war crimes committed by Blair and Bush has been carefully compiled and collected since 2006. The prosecution is led by several of Malaysia's most prominent lawyers.

The article goes on to describe who Mr. Matthias Chang and Mr. Zainur Zakaria tried and were prevented from serving the indictment. The Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission have now indicated that this is the beginning of a global campaign to ostracise people who they believe are war criminals and urge people around the world over to adopt similar campaigns against Bush and Blair.

I'm always amazed at what the press and news channels decide to use as news and what they simply ignore. Here's a great example.

A friend of mine pointed this story out. They did a search for this story using a number of search engines . BBC d id not seem to have the Story at all(BBC's most recent Malaysian news story of any kind was from February ) . They also tried Google search for Tony+Blair+Malaysia, and on the first two pages of results (filtered for UK Sites only) only Yahoo.co.uk of what we might think of as mainstream media outlets mentioned it. Strange.....

Todays link is to the very enjoyable Guy Fawkes blog at http://order-order.com/ One of the most popular blogs on the internet. Its like a private eye take on politics.
