Rage Against The Machine: 'George Bush Should Be Tried As A War Criminal'

Zack De La Rocha Rage Against The Machine frontman Zack De La Rocha has called the US president George W Bush to be tried as a war criminal. De la Rocha's comments came during the band's headlining set at the T in the Park Festival in Scotland last weekend.

Addressing the crowd, he said: "They said we had said George Bush should be assassinated. We did not say that. We said he should be tried for being a war criminal."

De La Rocha added that the US government was now afraid of the people who had elected them.

"If in protest to their war you burn down the American embassy...it's up to us, generation after generation to beat the system which perpetuates war. Wake up," he said.
