Tony Blair is the biggest mass murderer of modern times and is responsible for the deaths of over a million Iraqis, Afghanis and hundreds of British people, and must be put on trial for crimes against humanity and hanged as a war criminal, British National Party foreign affairs spokesman Arthur Kemp told a packed meeting in Leicestershire this past weekend.
Addressing a crowd of around 100 to mark the launch of the anti-war campaign in the region, Mr Kemp said an independent poll conducted by the Opinion Research Bureau in Iraq had estimated the number of civilian deaths in Iraq resulting from the invasion at 1,033 million.
“That puts Mr Blair into the same league as Pol Pot and Idi Amin, two of the greatest mass murders since World War II,” Mr Kemp said.
“The BNP is dedicated to ensuring that Mr Blair is arrested and placed on trial for crimes against humanity in front of an International Military Tribunal to be seated in London, after the death penalty is reintroduced in this county,” he said, receiving much applause.
“The war in Afghanistan is completely illegal and also based upon a lie. Recently, the head of the CIA, Leon Panetta, admitted that there were no more than 50 Al-Qaeda terrorists in Afghanistan.
“Why then invade an entire country? Most of the people involved in the terrorist attacks of 9-11 were Egyptians and Saudis, so why invade Afghanistan?” he said.
"As was the case with Iraq, the public was fed a pack of lies about the reasons for the war. They were told that Afghanistan needed to be invaded to combat terrorism, but even the head of MI5 has said that the wars have caused terrorism in Britain, and not subdued it.
“Mr Blair must be joined on the dock by all the politicians who voted in favour of these wars, the bureaucrats, military and civilian, who prepared the forged documents and fake evidence which was used to justify these wars. This includes Iain Duncan Smith, the then Tory leader who actually criticised Mr Blair for not invading fast enough,” Mr Kemp said.
“The blood of hundreds of British soldiers lies on all these peoples’ hands, and they must be brought to justice.”
