Journalist attempts citizen’s arrest for war crimes
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, May 28, 2008

Whatever happened to the credo "journalists report the news, they don't make it"?
The Telegraph newspaper reported that Guardian columnist George Monbiot, a critic of the Iraq war, tried to arrest the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations as he was exiting the stage at the Hay Literary Festival. The Telegraph earlier reported that Monbiot would try to arrest Bolton for war crimes.
The aptly named Monboit (which is French for Moonbat) said:
"This was a serious attempt to bring one of the perpetrators of the Iraq war to justice, for what is described under the Nuremberg Principles as an international crime..."
Mmmm ... more likely described under the Monbiot Principles for lunacy.
... Monbiot was blocked by two security guards, and Bolton was ushered away even as Monbiot attempted to dart after him once he was released. Monbiot reportedly said he was "disappointed" he was unable to make the arrest.
I can imagine he was. I also imagine he regards himself as an unbiased journalist of the highest order as well.

The only thing missing is him running after Bolton yelling "Citizen’s Arrest! Citizen’s Arrest!".

I can only shake my head at the justifications these alleged adults use for things like this.

It’s almost too bad the guards intervened. Bolton’s ’stache alone could take Monbiot.

I would seriously have liked to seen Bolton "f" him up.

Uh, uh. Not possible. Only westerners can be war criminals. At least I can’t think of any exceptions in our lifetime.

Slobodan Milošević?

Or have Serbs now become Westerners (because to consider them otherwise would disrupt the Narrative)?
