bush confesses to being a war criminal, but no one will believe him
Poor ol' george, he's confessin' all over the place but to no avail, apparently no one takes him seriously. I saw it happen today at his weird press conference, the president was asked what Iraq had to do with nine eleven, and his one word answer was, "Nothing".

Poor guy, I'll bet the Jonbenet murder confessor guy can relate, a reporter asked him if he was innocent and his one word answer was, "No".

If Iraq had nothing to do with nine eleven, did all of our soldiers die for nothing? And what about all those non combatant Iraqis that died by the tens of thousands, you know, the collateral damaged, did they also all die for nothing?

I'd say that is more or less confessing to many, many war crimes. The president also went on to say that Saddam had once possibly thought about making weapons of mass destruction, and that our nation was safer with Saddam behind bars. And then he said that as it turned out, there were no weapons of mass destruction, after using that phrase six hundred and eleventy trillion times and stating it as the reason for the fucking war.

Again, this is a public confession to starting a war full of torture and other atrocities, and thousands of lives shattered forever, and thousands of crippled and ruined in it's wake. The man publicly stated today that he started a war based on lies, which should at least qualify as a war crime, in a world that made sense.

But no one seems to believe the president any more than they believe the suddenly infamous John "I killed Jonbenet" Karr, who appears to be the most desperate man in the world, and who seems absolutely determined to confess.

I mean, what the hell does a man have to do around here to get arrested for war crimes and tyranny anyway, jeez?!?

1. It all happened right here on our television
It would be the easiest war crime trial in history. It would make Nuremburg look like a hassle.

2. I hope someone saved that part of
the press conference this morning. We should send it to The Hague.

4. Power of Attorney
He'd give Cheney PoA and then his confession wouldn't be worth anything (if PoA does that, I'm not sure it does).

6. He admitted to killing 30,000 Iraqis last year and didn't even get...
...a follow up question about it. I wouldn't expect too much out of our media.

7. Great *strategery*




He acknowledges the fact that everyone knows that he is the lying village idiot from Crawford. So now he can say anything he wants to and get away with it.

8. Saddam: The Most Expensive "Arrest" in History...
Since the goal apparently was to put him 'behind bars'...

Any real "Justice" would have to involve at least the equivalent of having Bush/Cheney share Saddam's cell.
