    Abstract

    HOW is it that some people can go around the world and talk on how to rule the world even though they have blood on their hands? Take, for example, Radovan Karadzic, the "Butcher of Bosnia", who is now facing trial in the Hague. Would we listen to him about the rule of law, knowing full well his war crime record and the tortures he has been accused of during the 19921995 war in BosniaHerzegovina? Yet, recently former British prime minister Tony Blair, one of the architects of another war, arguably a far worse tragedy, was invited to lecture on "Rule of Law and Good Governance" during a prestigious lecture series locally.
