The Bush Regime must be judged by an International Tribunal set up by the UN General Assembly Joan Russow, PhD, Global Compliance Research Project

In Canada, on March 17, rather than arresting Bush as a war criminal, the police arrested citizens calling for Bush to be put on trial.

While the numerous campaigns to impeach Bush have unfortunately been unsuccessful, and while attempts have been made to arrest Bush under various National laws has, up to this point failed, the Bush regime still must be judged, by the international community, for war crimes, crimes against the peace, and crimes against humanity. A Petition to UN General Assembly to set up International Tribunal to try the Bush regime has been circulated widely. Previously, on March 8, 2007 on International Womens day, the Petition to the UN General Assembly was submitted, in the six UN official languages, to the former President of the UN General Assembly. The current president of the UN General Assembly Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann has indicated that Bush should be put on trial:

If the real justice is in order, people like George Bush who are committing crimes throughout the world should be put on trial. (March 8, 2009).

Over the years, the United States has supported the setting up, by the United Nations, of tribunals to judge leaders of other states. To avoid, the perception of Bias, the United Nations General Assembly must be prepared to invoke Article 22 of the Charter of the United Nations, to set up an International Tribunal to try the Bush Regime. No state or state leader is above the rule of international law, particularly those states justifying aggression on the grounds of self-defence, under Article 51 of the UN Charter, or of preventive/pre-emptive aggression.


On March 8, 2007 on International Womens day, the following Petition to the UN General Assembly was submitted, in the UN official languages, to the President of the UN General Assembly. During the week of March 5-9, the petition was discussed with representatives of delegations or NGOs from over seventy member states of the United Nations, and it was distributed widely. Prior to March 5, the petition, in the UN official languages, was personally sent in the appropriate language to Ambassadors at the UN missions in New York.


The petition in English, French and Spanish follows:

ENGLISH PETITION TO THE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY TO SET UP AN INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL TRIBUNAL TO TRY PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH, VICE-PRESIDENT DICK CHENEY, FORMER SECRETARY OF DEFENSE DONALD RUMSFELD, SECRETARY OF STATE CONDOLEEZZA RICE, AND ATTORNEY GENERAL ALBERTO GONZALES

1. The U.N. General Assembly has the authority to set up such a tribunal by a majority vote as a subsidiary organ under U.N. Charter Article 22.
2. The United States has supported the U.N. Security Council setting up Tribunals against other state leaders, so as a matter of law it is unobjectionable.
3. The Bush Regime is guilty of Crimes Against Peace, as defined by the Nuremberg Charter (1945), the Nuremberg Judgment (1946), and the Nuremberg Principles (1950), and as codified by U.S. Army Field Manual 27-10 (1956) paragraph 498.
4. The purpose of the ICTU (International Criminal Tribunal against the United States under the Bush regime) would be to investigate and prosecute United States regime under George W. Bush for war crimes, crimes against humanity and against the Peoples of Iraq
5. The establishment of ICTU would provide some small degree of justice to the victims of U.S. war crimes, crimes against humanity and against the Peoples of Iraq
6. Furthermore, the establishment of ICTU by the U.N. General Assembly would serve as a deterrent effect upon U.S. leaders, and members of Congress as well as top generals that they will be prosecuted for further infliction of international crimes against Iraq, Afghanistan and other states.
7. Without such a deterrent, the U.S. administration along with the U.S. Congress, and their allies might be continue to be prepared to attack other states
[* Since the USA has refused to become a party to the Rome Statute for the International Criminal Court, this is the only effective legal redress the rest of the world has against US Officials.]



This petition should be sent to president or prime minister of your state

PETICIУN A LA ASAMBLEA GENERAL DE LAS NACIONES UNIDAS PARA ESTABLECER UN TRIBUNAL INTERNACIONAL CRIMINAL PARA LLEVAR A JUICIO A GEORGE W. BUSH, PRESIDENTE; DICK CHENEY, VICE-PRESIDENTE; DONALD RUMSFELD, EX SECRETARIO DE DEFENSA; CONDOLEEZZA RICE, SECRETARIA DE ESTADO; Y, ALBERTO GONZALES, FISCAL GENERAL.

1. La Asamblea General de las Naciones Unidas tiene la autoridad de establecer dicho tribunal por un voto en mayorнa como un "уrgano subsidiario" bajo la carta de las Naciones Unidas, artнculo 22.
2. Como los estados unidos han supportado otros tribunales contra otros estados, por tanto, es irrefutable como materia de ley.
3. Al Estatuto del ICTU debe agregбrsele el crimen adicional de Crнmen Contra la Paz, tal como estб definido en la Carta de Nurenberg (1945), el Juicio de Nurenberg (1946) y los Principio de Nurenberg (1950), y tal como estб contemplado en el Manual de Campo 27-10 de la Armada de los Estados Unidos (1956) en su parбgrafo 498.
4. El propуsito del Tribunal Criminal Internacional contra los Estados Unidos bajo el rйgimen de George W. Bush (ICTU por sus siglas en inglйs) serнa el investigar y llevar a juicio al Gobierno de los Estados Unidos por sus crнmenes de guerra, crнmenes contra la humanidad y contra de la poblaciуn de Irak
5. El establecimiento del ICTU proveerнa algъn grado de justicia a las vнctimas de los crнmenes de guerra perpetrados por los Estados Unidos, los crнmenes contra la humanidad y econtra la poblaciуn de Irak
6. Adicionalmente, el establecimiento del ICTU por la Asamblea General de la ONU servirнa de escarmiento a los actuales lнderes de los Estados Unidos, que junto a miembros del Congreso y generales al mando, y otros estados estarнan al tanto de que serнan juzgados por su recurrente perpetraciуn de crнmenes internacionales
7. Sin tal escarmiento, la administraciуn de los Estados Unidos junto con su Congreso puede y otros estados estar incitada a perpetrar ataques contra otros paнses

* Como los Estados Unidos de Amйrica rechazу ser parte del Estatuto de Roma para la Corte Internacional, esta es la ъnica vнa legal que el resto del mundo tiene para corregir las acciones de los oficiales de los Estados Unidos



Esta peticiуn debe ser enviado a sus estados

PЙTITION DESTINЙE А LASSEMBLЙE GЙNЙRALE DES NATIONS UNIES POUR LINSTAURATION DUN TRIBUNAL PЙNAL INTERNATIONAL VISANT А INSTRUIRE LE PROCИS DU PRЙSIDENT GEORGE BUSH, DU VICE-PRЙSIDENT DICK CHENEY, LANCIEN SECRЙTAIRE А LA DЙFENSE DONALD RUMSFELD, DE LA SECRЙTAIRE DЙTAT CONDOLEEZZA RICE ET DU PROCUREUR GЙNЙRAL ALBERTO GONZALES.

1. Selon larticle 22 de la Charte des Nations Unies, lAssemblйe gйnйrale peut crйer, suivant un vote majoritaire, les organes subsidiaires qu'elle juge nйcessaires а l'exercice de ses fonctions.

2. Como les Йtats-Unis ont donnй leur appui par tribual pour juger autres etats, au sens de la loi, on ne peut sobjecter а ce Tribunal.

3. Il faudrait ajouter au statut du TPIE un crime contre la paix, tel que celui-ci est dйfini par la Charte de Nuremberg (1945), par le Jugement de Nuremberg (1946), par les Principes de Nuremberg (1950) et larticle 27-10, paragraphe 498 de lUS Army Field Manual (1956).

4. Le but du Tribunal pйnal international contre les Йtats-Unis sous ladministration Bush (TPIE) serait denquкter sur les crimes de guerre, les crimes contre lhumanitй et le contre les peuples dIrak et de les traduire en justice

5. La crйation dun TPIE rendrait а trиs petite йchelle justice aux victimes des crimes de guerre, des crimes contre lhumanitй et des gйnocides perpйtrйs par les Amйricains contre les peuples dIrak

6. De plus, la crйation dun TPIE par lAssemblйe gйnйrale des Nations Unies aurait un effet dissuasif а lйgard des dirigeants amйricains, y les membres du Congrиs ainsi que les hauts gйnйraux, et aussi autres etats; ils sauront quils pourraient кtre jugйs sils commettent dautres crimes en autres pays.

7. Sans un tel effet dissuasif, ladministration amйricaine de concert avec le Congrиs, et autres etats pourraint se sentir autorisйs а attaquer dautres Йtats


* Йtant donnй le refus des Йtats-Unis dAmйrique de devenir membres du Statut de Rome de la cour pйnale internationale, la crйation dun TPIE constitue lunique recours lйgal et efficace que dйtient le reste du monde contre les dirigeants amйricains.

Priиre de faire parvenir un exemplaire au Prйsident ou Premier ministre de votre pays.
