Most taxpayers know that evading tax is a crime, but how many of us know that paying tax, council tax, fines, PAYE, can also be a war crime?

Former First Minister of Scotland Alex Salmond has already called for Tony Blair to be tried in the Hague for war crimes. It is well documented that Blair was committed to regime change (which is entirely illegal under international law) over a year before the invasion actually started.
…and the US is still trying to say al Qaeda, now exposed as a CIA franchise, aided Israel and Saudi Arabia with 9/11…

The unexploded BL-755 cluster bomb is designed to be dropped from the UK-made Tornado aircraft used by the Saudi Air Force. It was found in a village in the north of the conflict-torn Gulf nation.
Human rights NGO Amnesty International found the unexploded munition during an inspection.
The bomb is said to have been manufactured as long ago as the 1970s by a Bedfordshire-based arms company called Hunting Engineering.
Information released by the Ministry of Defence (MoD) shows that since 2014 UK military personnel have given training to 16 countries whose record on human rights is dubious to say the least.
These include countries the UK has recently attacked such as Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan; Gulf theocracies such as Bahrain and Saudi Arabia; former colonies Zimbabwe, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Burma and Sudan; and even global rivals such as China.
Burundi, Colombia, Egypt, Somalia and war-torn Yemen also feature on both lists.
The former Labour Prime Minister’s reputation is expected to be seriously “damaged” by the upcoming Inquiry, according to a senior source who has discussed the report with its authors.
It is understood that Mr Corbyn will not row back from calls he made last year for Mr Blair to stand trial for war crimes if he is found to have broken the law over the 2003 conflict.
Sir John Chilcot is due to finally release his long-delayed report on the legality of the 2003 Iraq invasion on July 6, seven years after the inquiry was commissioned.
Addressing Blair’s Iraq legacy, Corbyn warned: “The Chilcot report will come out in a few weeks’ time and tell us what we need to know, what I think we already know: There were no weapons of mass destruction, there was no ability to attack within 45 minutes and a deal had been done with Bush in advance.”
The CIA Office of Inspector General (OIG), the central intelligence agency’s internal watchdog, told Congress that the electronic copy of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s 6,700-page report and a hard disk were both destroyed last year.
CIA Director John Brennan possesses another copy of the torture report, but he has reportedly refused to send a replacement to the internal watchdog’s office.
Putin, however, went further saying that ISIS are completely fabricated by the US:
“We have all seen the staged beheading video leaked from Senator John McCain’s team. It was Russian hackers who exposed that. We also know the CIA trained ISIS. A U.S. senator exposed that. ISIS are a fraud. They are made in the U.S.A. and Russia will destroy them“.
Putin, who has been very vocal about destroying the illuminati in 2016, recently committed to sending more troops to Syria in the fight against terrorism. He has said that Russia will not stop until the job in Syria is done. Even if that means fighting the U.S. directly.
The PM said the countries’ leaders were “battling hard” to tackle the problem.
It comes after he was recorded talking to the Queen at Buckingham Palace.
An Afghan official said “bold” action had already been taken while Nigeria’s president said he would not be demanding an apology from the PM.
Asked ahead of the anti-corruption conference in London if Nigeria was “fantastically corrupt”, Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, who came to power last year on a promise to fight corruption, replied: “Yes.”
