The Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission was established to oversee and investigate complaints from victims of wars and armed conflict in relation to crimes against peace, war crimes, crimes against humanity and other like offences as recognized under International Law. In November 2011 the tribunal tried in absentia former US President George W. Bush and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, convicting both for crimes against peace in connection with the 2003 Iraq war.

Sundus Shaker Saleh, an Iraqi single mother and refugee living in Jordan filed a complaint in March 2013 in San Francisco federal court alleging that the named officials schemed since 1998 to invade Iraq by using 9-11 to mislead and scare the American public into supporting a the war. She argued that the waging of the 2003 Iraq war constituted a "crime of aggression" against Iraq, applying the legal theory that was used by the Nuremberg Tribunal to convict Nazi war criminals after World War II. The case has been brought to court by Comar Law, who are acting pro bono.
Israel is widely accused of committing war crimes, for example by the United Nations, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch. USA repeatedly exercises its veto power over the UN Security Council to prevent forceful actions in this regard.

|Robert McNamara||“LeMay said, "If we'd lost the war, we'd all have been prosecuted as war criminals." And I think he's right. He, and I'd say I, were behaving as war criminals. LeMay recognized that what he was doing would be thought immoral if his side had lost. But what makes it immoral if you lose and not immoral if you win?”||Robert McNamara|

|UK/Army||“The British army operated rules of engagement in Iraq and Afghanistan that at times allowed soldiers to shoot unarmed civilians who were suspected of keeping them under surveillance, a Middle East Eye investigation has established.|
The casualties included a number of children and teenage boys, according to several former soldiers interviewed by MEE.
Two former infantrymen allege that they and their fellow soldiers serving in southern Iraq were at one point told that they had permission to shoot anyone seen holding a mobile telephone, carrying a shovel, or acting in any way suspiciously.
The rules were relaxed, they say, in part because of concerns that unarmed individuals were acting as spotters for militants, or were involved in planting roadside bombs.<a href="#cite_note-4"></a>”
