George W. Bush lied to the American people. He claimed that Hussein was a massive threat to the world and hence Iraq should be invaded. The Iraqi War was not approved by the UN, against it's duty. However, his main aims were to ransack Iraqi oil and expand American hegemony- it was clear when Hussein was only executed for the massacre of 100 or so Shiites. After the war, all the Iraqi oil fields were occupied by Americans. Furthermore, Bush authorized the use of inhumane methods ie. Torture to make innocent victims suffer. His deprivation of Iraqi's rights has caused the rise of terrorism and a new war in the Arab world. For justice and prosperity, George Bush must be found guilty in the ICC.
President Bush lied to the people about Hussein's weapons of mass destruction. His major aim was to expand the American hegemony and take over Iraqi's oil. The war was not approved by the United Nations and hence is absolutely unjustified. After the Iraqi War, all the oil fields in Iraq were occupied by American firms. There were also numerous human rights abuses and atrocities committed by American troops. The deprivation of Iraqis has therefore, led to the rise of more terrorist groups and even more suffering in Iraq. Justice must be done to the Iraqi people.
President George W Bush is one of the few world leaders who has been able to start multiple wars for little reason other than finances, and not receive any sort of punishment or inquiry. As Presdient he pulled our nation into multiple conflicts where it was not needed, and has almost ruined our economy beyond repair.
I believe George W. Bush should be charged with war crimes, along with the succession of people responsible for the torture used during our last two wars. As the head of the country at the time I personally feel that George W. Bush should be held responsible for these tactics.
I think 911 was a terribly unexpected emotional blow to every American. No one ever dreamed an attack like that could happen here. I don't think any President could be prepared for what happened that day. George Bush was strong, and took steps that were deemed appropriate and necessary throughout the rest of his term in office.
George W. Bush should not be charged with war crimes. He acted on the information he was given from what were reported to be reliable sources and made decisions based on that information and the advice of other officials in his cabinet. He asked for legal advice from legal advisers and made the best decisions that could be made with the information at his disposal.
While the Bush Administration may have misled the American public about whether or not Iraq had weapons of mass destruction I don't believe we should hold the President criminally responsible for a war that was approved in both the House and the Senate, I think it would set a very bad standard if we did so.
