Why isn't Bush being tried for war crimes?
Where and by who would he be tried?

1. For the same reason that Oliver North is not doing hard time.
There are never consequences for the pukes. And until that changes, they will continue to do the evil things that they thrive on.

4. North should have been let out last year. 15 years would be about right.

2. Because any country that tries it will end up on the wrong end...
of cruise missiles or possibly nukular weapons because it you ain't with 'em, you're against 'em.

3. because 2000 was a coup, not an election
and he controls enough power to threaten his enemies with anthrax and other forms of death at the hands of "terrorists."

or of course by the more conventional assisted "suicide."

5. The International Criminal Court In the Hague
This is what justice for the BFEE would look like:

The International Criminal Court is in the Peace Palace in the Hague:


The trial would be here, I believe:



This is the prison wing, current home of Slobodan Mislovitch and some
members of his regime.

6. And the prison wing even recycles. Progressive and scenic.
How did the Ugly Americans take control over the world, anyway? We are just such dumb brutes doing such a poor job of things.

Can the UK take us back, please?

7. Under The Federal War Crimes Act Of 1996, Ma'am
There is little doubt he and the chiefs of the regime are liable for Federal criminal charges, as that act forbids "grave violations" of the Geneva Accords, which there is no doubt have occured in various U.S. detention facilities over the last several years.

8. Because the unpatriotic GOP controls all three branches of the
federal government.

9. Prescott and George H. W need to be charged as well.
How the Bush family tries to pretend they are so cultured when they are the butchers.

Prescott at Auschwitz during WWII.

GHW at Paris, France with the Iranian terrorists, Oct. 18, 1980

and there are many more examples.

We need to have the Bush family totally ruined by this info. No more ignorance of it.
