War criminal Tony Blair knighted

Former British PM Tony Blair has been Knighted by Queen Elisabeth. Given his aggression vis-a-vis the innocent people of Iraq, this is highly offensive. In view of Blair’s disregard for international law and basic morality, he should instead be prosecuted by a British court of justice. This would demonstrate to Iraqis and right-minded people worldwide that his role in the 2003 invasion of Iraq constituted a crime against humanity.

A UK petition (www.change.org) for Tony Blair to be removed from his knighthood has now received over 1.1 million signatures. (Editor’s note)
