Iraq and the case for Australian war crimes trials: Part 1
by C. Doran, and T. Anderson
The release of the Chilcot Report in the UK and Andrew Wilkie's (Federal independent member for Dennison and former intelligence analyst in Australia's Office of National Assessments) public statement: “... Prime Minister John Howard took Australia to war on the basis of a lie and stands accused of war crimes. That he has never been held to account, and that his Foreign Minister Alexander Downer is now Australian High Commissioner to London, is quite simply outrageous..." has brought Australians' attention to the travesty of our country participating in the US led invasion of Iraq.
Below is posted a section from the article, "Iraq and the case for Australian war crimes trials" called Australian responsibility: cluster bomb deaths of civilians from the journal, Crime, Law and Social Change with permission of the authors, Chris Doran and Tim Anderson. This will be followed up by a another section called, Australian responsibility: the assault on Fallujah that will be posted next week.
