    "The Iraq war 'has destabilized and polarized the world to a greater extent than any other conflict in history,' wrote Tutu, who was awarded the Nobel prize in 1984.

    "'Those responsible for this suffering and loss of life should be treading the same path as some of their African and Asian peers who have been made to answer for their actions in the Hague,' he added.

    "The Hague, Netherlands, based court is the world's first permanent war crimes tribunal and has been in operation for 10 years. So far it has launched prosecutions only in Africa, including in Sudan, Congo, Libya and Ivory Coast."

    Tutu: Bush, Blair should face trial at the Hague - Yahoo! News

    The US invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq have enhanced al-Qaeda recruitment from Pakistan to Yemen, and that was predicted long before the actual crimes occurred.

    "Like the 1998 attacks on Sudan and Afghanistan, the invasion of Afghanistan in 2001 again led to a big increase in recruitment and financing for networks of the al-Qaeda style. The war in Iraq had the same effect.

    "Just this morning the State Department conceded that, as they politely put it, they were mistaken, in other words, lying outright, in their report a couple of months ago claiming that terror had been reduced thanks to Bush.

    "In fact, it had sharply increased, they now concede quietly, which had been known before.

    "And one of the reasons for the increase was the war in Iraq. Furthermore, it was predicted in advance that that was going to happen. It wasn’t any surprise. Intelligence agencies and analysts were predicting, if you invade Iraq, you’re going to increase terrorism, for pretty obvious reasons."
