Given that BP is behind yet another environmental disaster is it time that company executives be prosecuted as ordinary criminals. As well as the looming environmental disaster on the SE US coast several poorly paid Mexican oil workers lost their lives. BP should not escape prosecution by hiding behind sub-contractors but its executives should face charges of culpable homicide as well as having all their assets stripped to help pay for the environmental clean up. Surely we need such harsh measures to prevent greedy business execs putting profit before safety of both people and the environment.
As for the question should leaders be held accountable for the deaths caused by sovereign armies in illegal conflicts. Then YES....TOO DAMN RIGHT THEY SHOULD. Blair and Bush are war criminals.
