    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.
    I thought Bush had never been outside of the country before he became POTUS. I doubt he'll leave America again.

    I love how the UN resolution 1441 people are all of the sudden decrying the UN as irrelevant now.

    Hahahaa - that what I thought. I've seen people here, people now denouncing the UN, use Iraq and Iran's refusal to comply with UN Resolutions/UN Umbrella groups as pretext for criticisms or war. Funny how those same people cry the irrelevance of the UN in matter of US affairs or Israeli affairs

    Article is here.
    I hope they try. The faster the better.

    It would be the first opportunity to start moving to have the UN removed from US soil.

    Removing the UN would never happen under Obama, but it would set a great foundation to put the US Socialist Party against the wall.

    People may have tired of the war, but they sure aren't ready to see a president taken to task by a bunch of thugs and despots in the UN.

    Just do it.

    I hope he leaves the minute they have papers for his arrest/capture. A nice trip to France.

    If I were him, I'd do it.

    It would be a stroke of political brilliance.

    I think you are misreading people's use of the UN resolution argument, if anything else, the U.N.'s inaction speaks to it's irrelevance, and the fact that we are the only nation that follows through on the enforcement part of the contract is the concrete proof of the point. We do what we are obligated to do, while many of our citizens are tired of the U.N. not living up to it's bargain, while backseat driving the countries that tow the line, all while trying to meddle with our internal constitutional affairs, if we had a politician with more guts, they'd call it like it is and ask for articles of war against the U.N., but that ain't gonna happen.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

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

    I think the UN should prosecute Obama for war crimes. He ordered missile strikes on homes in Waziristan Pakistan. Innocent people died. Obama is a warmonger. How dare he order strikes on homes. Three innocent children were killed in those homes?

    Missiles fired from suspected US drones killed at least 15 people inside Pakistan today, the first such strikes since Barack Obama became president and a clear sign that the controversial military policy begun by George W Bush has not changed.

    Security officials said the strikes, which saw up to five missiles slam into houses in separate villages, killed seven "foreigners" - a term that usually means al-Qaeda - but locals also said that three children lost their lives
    Obama is a murderer. He has ordered these attacks which have killed innocent children. Damned American Imperialist warmonger!

    Well, "if" the UN did that, Obama would turn him over. The world wants BushCo to pay for their crimes. It is inevitable.
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    I'm not against his actions. But it is diametrically opposed to the clip below.

    I'm also waiting for the worldwide condemnation of this imperialist and his actions to pour into the streets... just thinking the Eurostani's will be consistent and lead the way.

    Is the UN going to set up a tribunal to prosecute The Obamer too?
