    Why would you buy anything Amnesia International claims? Can you show me where al Qaeda signed onto the Geneva Convention? Wonder if any trial of Bush will include having the heads of those beheaded by al Qaeda on display?

    every member of congress that knew and did nothing is equally as culpable as Bush. I would agree to having Bush tried for his "crimes" as long as every member of congress that went along with him is tried as a coconspirator
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    Actually, it's proper to wait until Bush is out of office to prosecute him for war crimes. Prosecutions of sitting heads of state for war crimes are generally discouraged under international law.
    It's "proper" to wait? So enforcing which laws are "generally discouraged"?

    Maybe Congress should have impeached Bush, maybe they shouldn't have. But new evidence has come to light in the form of a confession from Bush himself. That's more than enough to move on a war crimes prosecution.
    And which new "confession" is this?

    I agree, the attorney general is failing in his duty. Like Ikari observe, it is for political reasons. It's a shame. But there's still hope an international tribunal will have the courage to prosecute Bush. But I won't hold my breath.

    The ICC now calls the shots for what goes on in the United States?

    I'll be looking forward to them making an arrest!

    amazing, isn't it how we have a new group of liberals who didn't know that waterboarding occurred during the Bush Administration?

    And we can add to that the leaders of Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Syria, the PLO, and so on down the line.

    Unless they're only interested in persecuting Americans, there'll be no one left to complete a jury.
