Arrest warrant for Putin? It’s been around for a long time for Bush and Blair
In November 2011, a lawsuit was held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, which concluded that George W. Bush and Tony Blair should be tendered for arrest. The charge was “crimes against peace”. The criminal trial of former U.S. President George W. Bush and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair before the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission (KLWCC) ended with a guilty verdict against the defendants. Bush and Blair were placed on the official list of war criminals wanted worldwide. It was due process, with prosecutor, defense counsel and judge. This is how it should be done before an arrest warrant is issued.
The transcript of the proceedings does not lack clarity. It should be noted that this tribunal was not held in a kindergarten playground. After all, the presiding judge was Federal Judge Datuk Abdul Kadir Sulaiman. In his ruling, he states, “The Tribunal unanimously concludes that there are sufficient grounds for suspicion to conclude that President George W. Bush and Prime Minister Anthony Blair committed a crime against peace by deciding to invade, conquer and bring about the overthrow of Saddam Hussein in Iraq.”
The U.S. has disregarded the UN Charter
In the reasons for the judgment, he states:
“Nothing in the United Nations Charter enabled the actions of President Bush and Prime Minister Blair to be justified. The idea that the United States of America and Great Britain were threatened by Iraq is absurd. From our perspective, the doctrine of pre-emptive first strike is a doctrine without limits. Both the U.S. and Britain are guilty of abusing human rights against Saddam Hussein. Attacking Iraq for possession of weapons of mass destruction has no basis in international law. The United States, with all its power, nevertheless does not have the right to change international law. The invasion of Iraq was an unlawful act of aggression and is an international crime. The characteristic of the United Nations (UN) is thus also at stake. The two defendants took the law into their own hands. They acted fraudulently and therefore have been found guilty according to the indictment.”
During the trial, the lead prosecutor, Prof. Gurdial Singh Nijar, who teaches at the University of Malaya’s Faculty of Law, noted that intelligence reports submitted to both the U.S. and U.K. committees clearly showed that 9/11 was merely a pretext, as plans for the invasion dated back to 1998.

The war against Russia was planned for a long time
At this point, it is appropriate to point out the parallels with the current war in Ukraine. The plans for this also go back at least to 2014. As Merkel, Hollande and Poroshenko had proclaimed, the Minsk agreements were a sham and in reality they only served to arm Kiev for the war against Russia. However, it needs to be assumed that planning for this war existed years earlier and was pursued with NATO’s eastward expansion and the coup on the Maidan.
As courageous and upright as Malaysia has behaved, it has led to nothing. At least to nothing that could have impressed Bush or Blair in any way. But is it there to be relegated entirely to the realm of conspiracy theories that two Malaysian Airlines planes, MH 370 and MH 17, went missing under mysterious circumstances in 2014 and that it may have been an act of revenge by the convicts? Yes, it is one thing to issue an arrest warrant and another to execute it. That brings us back to the arrest warrant against Russian President Putin and Russian Commissioner for Children’s Rights, Maria Lvova-Belova. They are accused of deporting Ukrainian children to Russia, against their will and the will of their parents.
Double standards again and again
At this point, a reminder of 1975 is in order. At that time, when the US army had to flee from Vietnam, Operation Babylift was quickly carried out. Thousands of Vietnamese children, including infants, were packed into airplanes and brought to North America. The fact that a few hundred died in a plane crash was certainly “collateral damage” to be tolerated even then. This action was celebrated everywhere as a great humanitarian achievement of the Americans. These children, for the most part, have no idea to this day who their biological parents were. Details here (in German).
Regarding the children brought from the territory of the former Ukraine, it should be noted that they come exclusively from the areas that broke away from Kiev. They were saved from the danger of losing their lives due to the continuous shelling of the Ukrainian army directly into the civilian centers. One could say that this was an action that is under the heading, “imminent danger” and rapid relief. Let’s not forget, since 2014, 14,000 civilians, including many children, have died there as a result of shelling. Shelling that has no military purpose whatsoever and only serves the purpose of terrorizing the “renegade” population. Just as civilian areas in Crimea have been repeatedly shelled by Kiev’s henchmen in recent times. This is also a crime against every convention of the UN and also against the law of war. But why get upset about it? After all, it is “the good guys” who are committing these crimes on an ongoing basis.
Who else is “Ukrainian”?
The next point is that these children cannot be Ukrainian children. They come from the new republics, which want nothing to do with Kiev, as has been established with the referendum. They, their parents, have renounced Ukrainian citizenship and acquired Russian passports. At the moment, the Russian army is still moving exclusively in the area of the new republics.
The arrest warrant against Putin disregards international law
The arrest warrant against Putin is a propaganda farce. It shows how desperate the West is. And how arrogant. Everyone knows that this action can have as little effect as the solidly executed action of the Malaysian government in 2011. So there are voices in the West, too, who note that you can’t arrest a sitting president at all, according to international law. They know that with this propaganda action they are already violating international law again, at least trying to “stretch” it. How is it to be judged there if the German Minister of Justice wants to have Putin arrested as soon as he enters the territory of the FRG? Or the chancellor’s snappy sayings that “no one is above the law”? The chancellor trying to pull his neck out of the noose with dementia, (pardon, of course, forgetfulness), as far as his role in financial scandals is concerned. Just like the entire clown team in Berlin, for whom it goes without saying that all U.S. presidents are above the law.
Neither the U.S. nor Russia has recognized the International Criminal Court in The Hague. Washington itself, however, has gone one step further. As Der Spiegel reported in 2002, the U.S. is even threatening the Netherlands with military action should it dare to indict a U.S. citizen there. Yes, the indictment as such would be enough. This Spiegel article is worth reading.
In this way, the gentlemen in Washington are saying that they see themselves as being above the law. Can Chancellor Scholz receive applause in Washington? And how would it look if Moscow wanted to act according to the same maxim? Oh yes, that is of course something completely different. Quod licet Iovi, non licet bovi! What Jupiter is allowed to do, cattle are not allowed to do! But Moscow has already announced that they will initiate criminal proceedings against those involved in this propaganda act. No, they do not want to invade the Netherlands, as the U.S.A. have threatened. They will take the legal route and respect international law. But maybe it was just the West’s goal to kill Putin in this way, by laughter. Then the world would be all right again?
