Iraq War "Blatant State Terrorism": Nobel Laureate
"The crimes of the United States have been systematic, constant, vicious, remorseless, but very few people have actually talked about them."
"You have to hand it to America. It has exercised a quite clinical manipulation of power worldwide while masquerading as a force of universal good. It's a brilliant, even witty, highly successful act of hypnosis."
"How many people do you have to kill before you qualify to be described as a mass murderer and a war criminal?" Pinter asked.
"One hundred thousand? More than enough, I would have thought. Therefore it is just that Bush and Blair be arraigned before the International Criminal Court of Justice," he added.
Pinter, son of a Jewish dressmaker in Hachney, east London, is known for his campaigning against the US-led war in Iraq, calling Bush a "mass murderer" and Blair a "deluded idiot".
