Edited on Fri Dec-15-06 05:22 AM by SoCalDem
Prince Pissypants and his band of thieves? Could they 'extradite' him for trial, or would he have immunity retroactively?

The damage he has caused is worldwide. EVERY westerner is less safe because of the shitstorm he started in the middle east.

every time I see a "real" newscast I am always startled by the HUGE numbers of angry youngish men..thousands of them.. mostly unemployed, hyper religious, and mad as hell..

I wonder just how fast we COULD bug out when they all decide that enough's enough, and they decide to throw us out of Iraq?

With most of our forces vulnerable and outnumbered or hunkered down in the Green Zone, it does not take a vivid imagination to see how easily we could get trapped, and surrounded by those angry men.. :scared:

1. I'd love to see that happen. Prosecuted and convicted, then justice would be served.
This crew has created a very dangerous world, for everyone, Eastern and Western alike.

2. If Bush keeps going the way he is we ...
might not need the world court. I think you could already make a good argument the man is guilty of treason. All that needs to happen now is for overwhelming public outrage to make it politically possible. A massacre of American troops in Iraq caused by his callous indifference would probably do it.

3. I think.....
....as far as the World Court goes - crimes would only be prosecuted if they have been committed after we signed on to it. Kinda like the laws we have that if you committed a crime 50 years ago and get caught today you'll be tried under the laws as they were at the time the crime was committed, but not sure about that.
