I feel sad that after a very well attended Press Conference (see picture) chaired by me as Chairman of the Kuala Lumpur Perdana Global Peace Organisation to condemn the visit of the war criminal Tony Blair, almost nothing has appeared in the print and electronic media in this country.

It looks as if Malaysia supports the criminal action of this former British Prime Minister who lied to his Parliament, to the British people and the world that Iraq had Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) which could hit Britain in a matter of minutes.

On the basis of this lie he joined George Bush of the United States to launch a massive war against Iraq, killing hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis and destroying their cities, the electricity and water supply.

When no WMDs were found in Iraq, this war criminal claimed that he and Bush unleashed their killers against Iraq to rid it of (President) Saddam Hussein and to make Iraq and all the countries in West Asia democratic.

Saddam has been caught together with his Cabinet members and hanged after trial by a kangaroo court.

But the killings in Iraq has not stopped. It is five years plus and the Iraqi people, from babies to old people, the healthy and the sick, are being killed or savagely wounded every day.

Whatever Saddam may have done, nothing that he did can compare with the death and destruction caused by Blair and Bush.

If Saddam is regarded as a criminal for the harsh way he built up his country, if Radovan Karadzic is a criminal because of the thousands of Bosniaks he massacred, then Blair together with Bush must be condemned as worse criminals, for the senseless and pointless war of aggression they launched i.e. for mass killings of innocent people that they ordered to be carried out without an ounce of mercy, with no compassion for the Iraqi people.

Blair is truly a criminal who was rejected even by the British people.

It is disgusting to see this criminal of the highest order being welcomed in Malaysia and worse still to talk on the rule of law when he broke all international laws and the laws of his own country by deliberately lying and sending young British soldiers to die in a war of aggression.

The conspiracy of silence by Malaysia's media is to be condemned for you are lending support to a War Criminal whose criminal acts must not go unpunished.

Yet you have seen how readily the United States and its cohorts condemn the President of Sudan, Omar Bashir, for alleged war crimes in Darfur when there is no evidence that he deliberately issued orders to war against anyone.
