THE WARRANT OF ARREST FOR SUDAN'S PRESIDENT

1. The Star reported the following today which has a bearing on the case against former President George W. Bush.

2."A leaked Red Cross report on CIA "torture" of detainees offers fresh ammunition to demands that officials from the Bush administration be prosecuted for their conduct, rights groups said on Monday".

3.Providing the most detailed account yet of the treatment of detainees under former President George W. Bush, the 2007 report by the International Committee for the Red Cross describes beatings, sleep deprivations, extreme temperatures and "suffocation by water", of 14 suspected Al-Qaeda members.

4.The abuse described by the detainees including being slammed into walls, and deprived of sleep and solid food for days, "constituted torture", the Red Cross document said.

5.Other methods "constituted cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment", it said.

6.The ICRC blames all these on officials in Bush's Government.

7.But the International Criminal Court puts the blame on the President of Sudan because he was in "control" of the forces which were alleged to commit the war crimes and crimes against humanity.

8.So, why should the President of the United States be allowed to put the blame on his officials? If action is to be taken for the crimes committed by officers of the Bush administration, the action, the warrant of arrest should be served on Bush. Everyone knows that all policies including legalising torture were initiated by Bush.

9.The ICRC must blame Bush and consider him culpable. The ICRC must demand that action be taken against Bush and not his officers.

1. Ya saya akui tidak dapat buat roket ke angkasa, atau kereta boleh terbang atau boleh berubah jadi bot. Apakah semua orang yang fasih berbahasa Inggeris semua boleh buat roket. Tetapi yang belajar berkenaan dengan roket sains memang boleh. Setakat ini belum ada yang tidak belajar sains dalam Bahasa Inggeris yang mencipta roket. Orang Cina dan India pun mengguna ilmu sains yang terkini yang terdapat dalam Bahasa Inggeris untuk roket mereka. Aahli roket Jepun pun mengguna hasil kaji selidik dalam Bahasa Inggeris untuk menjayakan program roket mereka.
