    Good thing.. It only means that if Bush ever goes overseas he will be arrested and put in jail.. Good thing that moron will be confined to the US..

    Lets hope the US does the same, with exception of Texas, and let him stay there, and only there the rest of his life.

    Maybe we should pull out of the UN if they go through with this... say in 2013 when an Adult is back in the WH.
    And the criminals also say the justice system is a joke.. Recognize the irony of that?

    I am sure however that government and many people in places like Iran, North Korea, Zimbabwe and so on shares your view that the UN is a joke...

    When it comes to doing anything of good to countries and people the UN is pronounced "un", not "Yoo-en".
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    I agree. Although I feel Bush screwed up I do fully support the war on terror and believe it must be won. We were forced to act because the UN isa POS organization that cannot do a freaking thing.

    I do wish we could pullout of the UN and kick their sorry usless dead beat asses out of the country. But unfortunatly politically it carries weight and we have to be a member whether we like it or not.

    That so-called official can kiss our American asses before that ever happens.
    I am surprised more die hard Bush bashers haven't jumped in this thread to defend the anti-American idea of the UN prosecuting our former president and his appointees.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The rest of the world. Meaning they can never leave the US without getting arrested.. If that is what you mean?

    Except perhaps a few crappy countries that will not enforce it.

    If he was convicted in the UN trials or in the Hague as a war criminal I think non of the European countries would not arrest him.

    Perhaps he could travel relatively freely in some African countries.

    Re: Official: UN may prosecute Bush administration, regardless of US action

    I think the "Pinochet scenario" where Bush is interned while in a European country (although I doubt the UK be the one to do it) could possibly happen.

    If that happened I really doubt Obama would risk war or even severely strained relations with the EU to get Bush back. There would be a distinct chance of trial.

    What would be best is if Bush was seized while traveling in Eastern Europe somewhere. This would avoid the more obvious bull**** people would raise if it happened in Western Europe. Additionally, Eastern European countries contained (and probably continue to contain) CIA "black sites", so arresting Bush over that would be a strong grounds for the initial proceedings.

    What would make A LOT more sense is snatching Cheney while he's traveling. I REALLY doubt anyone in the US would get too upset about that.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?
