Saddam Hussein's execution is now a _MAJOR_ violation of the Geneva Convention!
Bush & Cheney should be escorted to the Hague as soon as possible to stand trial for murders of untold number of Iraqis, 3k American deaths, waste of taxpayers' money, and much more.

Discuss.

2. Since US is still a party to the Convention
I say we begin by storming the White House and declare a citizen's arrest on Chimp and Vader, and any SS that still have loyalty on them.

6. why? it was a "fair" trial wasn't it? and besides, didn't we hand him off
to iraqi's before he was killed? bushie's hands never touched the rope.

(and maybe that was why we turned him over to the iraqi's two seconds before he was executed)

7. Is there anything hard that can be used? I mean are there
articles that cover this? I'm not familiar with Geneva. I felt something wasn't kosher but if BushCo have painted themselves into a corner, let's take advantage of the opportunity.
