We here in the UK have extradited Christopher Tippin to the US for crimes he supposedly committed by conspiring to sell missile parts to Iran. In order to trade with a country such as Iran you need to have a permit from the government. So given that we haven’t charged him can we assume he as not committed a crime here in the UK? So why are we allowing the US to have him.
Well the Americans think if he broke American laws he should be tried in the US. Taking that to its logical conclusion why was an American soldier , who murdered 16 Afghanis in Afghanistan (this is against the law in Afghanistan) spirited away to Kansas for trial in the States. Are all American soldiers issued with ruby slippers so they can just click their heels and magically find themselves back in the homeland.
Surely the act of taking a criminal out of a country to escape their justice is, in itself, a criminal act? This makes the American military including their Commander in Chief, the POTUS, criminals for their complicity in this crime. So why are we giving this British citizen to this Band of ‘criminal’ Brothers to be tried for committing a ‘crime’, when they themselves are criminals.
For crimes against the Afghan State Judiciary
What is the point of having a British passport if those we elect to look after our interests hand us over to the first bunch of crooks that ask?
It’s about time we told these criminal upstarts that we want our colonies back, after all they didn’t win the war of independence we simply needed to go and sort out the French.
