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?

The People’s Chilcot Tribunal

There is a growing sense of anticipation in relation to the publication of the Chilcot report. However, after years of lies and obfuscation, it is reasonable to be sceptical about the recent media claims that the soon to be released Chilcot report will provide a genuinely scathing critique of the process that led us into the Iraq War.

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.

Exclusive: Hezbollah Captures CIA Officer in Aleppo, Commanding al Qaeda

Veterans Today now has two confirmed sources that an American CIA agent was captured this week near Mount Simeon, outside Aleppo.  The American was part of a group commanding an operations room Jabat al Nusra, al Qaeda’s “franchise” in Syria.  The CIA has denied the claim, but it has already floated an offer through 3rd party sources to buy their man back.

…and the US is still trying to say al Qaeda, now exposed as a CIA franchise, aided Israel and Saudi Arabia with 9/11…

Illegal UK-made cluster bombs found in Yemeni village attacked by Saudis

Banned UK-manufactured cluster bombs have been found in a Yemeni village targeted in Saudi-led coalition airstrikes, leading to calls for the UK to come clean on its weapon sales and military support to Saudi Arabia.

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.

‘Tony Blair lied on Iraq and will be exposed by Chilcot report’ – Corbyn

Former Prime Minister Tony Blair’s lies about weapons of mass destruction and his secret war pact with former US President George W Bush will be exposed by the Chilcot Inquiry, Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has said.

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.

Blair bombshell

War fan Tony Blair could face charges over his role in sending British soldiers to Iraq. A cross-party group of MPs wants him prosecuted if the Chilcot report shows he lied to get support.

One route is to have him ‘impeached’ – following trial by the House of Lords. The Lords hasn’t actually had a go at this in 210 years though, so the International Criminal Court is likelier.

Likelier still, of course, is for nothing to come of this. The capitalist establishment, in Britain and internationally, backs Blair’s belligerence.

All the bosses’ wars kill workers and benefit only the rich. Saying otherwise is the lie at the core of all imperialist conflict.

The Socialist hopes Blair does face justice. But we say send all the establishment warmongers – and the capitalist system which requires war – down alongside him.

Putin: ISIS Was Made In The USA, And We’re Going To Destroy Them

President Putin has delivered a scathing attack on the American government, accusing U.S. intelligence and government officials of creating and perpetuating ISIS.

Vladimir Putin says he will destroy ISIS, even though he knows it is a U.S. creation

When asked by a reporter on Monday about how Russia views America’s role in combating terrorism in the Middle East, Putin responded by saying:

Most of the terrorism we see in the Middle East is because of U.S. foreign policy. But worse than that, al-Qaeda and ISIS are actually a U.S. invention, and the latter of the two Russia is currently dealing with in Syria”.

His remarks come just weeks after Presidential candidate Rick Santorum admitted that ISIS were allowed to rise to power by President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, when their administration ordered the CIA to arm and train them in Jordan in 2012 in order to destabilise the Syrian government.

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.

Cameron praises Nigeria and Afghanistan’s corruption

 Nigeria and Afghanistan have taken “remarkable steps forward” on corruption, David Cameron told MPs – a day after calling the countries “fantastically corrupt”.

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.”
