Isn’t it great? “New powers to prosecute war criminals living in Britain who have committed atrocities dating back to 1991 were unveiled today by the justice secretary, Jack Straw.”(1) That is right the same Jack Straw who, as British Foreign Minister in 2003, supported the Iraq War. Yes, that very same war that has led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocents and was illegal in international law. Of course, the extent of the myopia, which Jack Straw, and people like him, suffer from is so severe that Jack probably doesn’t realise that the new powers to prosecute war criminals would, in an ideal world, be envoked to send Jack, along with Tony, a few other Brits, and quite a few Americans, to jail.
