The criminal conspiracy of the Bush administrations and the protection of Iraq’s children

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

US/UK efforts led to the devastation and ruination of Iraq from 1991 through aerial bombardment and economic embargo and then military invasion and occupation (2003-11) which led to the deaths and ruination of large numbers of Iraqi civilians. This period (1990-2011) witnessed the US/UK policy viz. Iraq abrogate the Nuremberg Charter, Judgment and Principles, a repudiation of the very legal mechanisms and norms intended to constrain such state actions. It is suggested that, following such mass casualties, that all US and UK government officials should be held fully accountable under international law for the commission of such grievous international crimes.
