War crimes are being committed by the Western powers and
their goons in Libya.

That is all.

2. It is a war of aggression. There is hardly any doubt at this point.

5. AGs don't issue deployment orders
And if the anti-war base won't demand an accounting who will, the pro-interventionist opposition?

We'll be told that if we don't turn a blind eye to the wars of luxury that we'll help elect a president that will engage in wars of luxury.

7. No, but AG's who take the Geneva Conventions seriously could proceed
with an indictment of War Criminals.

Remember it was Al Gonzo who originally insisted that the GCs were quaint.
My narrow point is that Eric Holder is treating the GC's the same way now.

I frankly agree that accountability is a necessary condition to any President's eligibility for re-election.

6. I'm thinking of Ghengis Kahn when I look at the siege of Bani Walid
With thousands of rebels, hundreds of tanks and NATO planes laying siege against only 100 soldiers.
