Minju Joson Accuses Former U.S. President of His Monstrous War Crimes
Pyongyang, May 21 (KCNA) -- The War Criminal Tribunal in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, formed a chief justice with its jurists and law experts and held a hearing on torture and war crimes committed by Former U.S. President Bush II and his seven assistants from May 7 to 12.

Minju Joson Monday observes in a bylined commentary in this regard: This clearly shows the will of the international community not to pardon those who committed hideous war crimes against humanity no matter how much water has flown under the bridge, the commentary notes, and goes on:

Still fresh in the memory of world people are the shuddering human rights abuses perpetrated by U.S. troops in Abu Ghraib Prison in Iraq and Guantanamo naval base, shocking the world.

These being hard facts, Bush II did not assume any legal responsibility for those hideous crimes against humanity.

But he is still at large though he earned an ill fame as a hideous war criminal and the U.S., the world's worst human rights abuser and chieftain of genocide, is busy waging "an anti-terror war." This cannot but be a tragedy of the international community.

Both international law and the UN Charter have no provision stipulating that the U.S. cannot be brought to an international tribunal as it is a "superpower". In the international community each country is equal and the U.S. is just a member of this community. The U.S. deserves a stern punishment if it committed crimes against humankind.

It will certainly judge on behalf of justice the U.S., the root cause of all the misfortune and sufferings on earth.
