    Zyphlin, you have got to stop coming into threads after me and saying what I meant to say and saying it better and more clearly. It's really annoying. :P

    That six month war against a nation with WMD is finally over.

    Or is it? What happens now? Does Iran try to take over? Do the Islamic nutters take over Iraq?

    Sigh....
    Exactly, what you said was that the Swiss were going to arrest and prosecute him, you're source says "Human rights groups said they had intended to submit a 2,500-page case against Bush in the Swiss city on Monday for alleged mistreatment of suspected militants at Guantanamo Bay, the U.S. naval base in Cuba where captives from Afghanistan, Iraq and other fronts in the so-called War on Terror were interned."

    Also your source says "Swiss judicial officials have said that Bush would still enjoy a certain diplomatic immunity as a former head of state."

    The closest it comes to saying what you said is this "Dominique Baettig, a member of the Swiss parliament from the right-wing People's Party, wrote to the Swiss federal government last week calling for the arrest of Bush for alleged war crimes if he came to the neutral country." That is not the same as the gov't intending to arrest and prosecute him, its exactly the same as if a Congressmen calls for the arrest of the President of Iran as he visits UN.

    On what charge(s) whould he be tried?

    None, didn't think; anyway, don't get too excited. We'll be going back in a few years.

    The Swiss weren't going to anything.

    They know they don't have the authority.
