    So you are comparing Bush to the Nazis? Unbelieveable and just substantiates my claim that you have a bad case of BDS. You don't have a clue what Bush did or didn't do but are willing to buy what Amnesia International tells you but only on this issue? Where were you on the Saddam Hussein issue or the beheading of innocent civilians? Your selective outrage is quite telling. Bush didn't do anything wrong, no one was hurt and lives were saved. I really feel sorry for you but that is reality. I would take Bush back in a heartbeat over the emty suit in the WH right now.

    lol Tough to prove his innocence when he's going on a book tour with his confession. But you can still dream, i guess.

    That's not at all how it works. The jurisdiction is over the reasonable allegation of the war crime, there is no presumption of guilt. That's what the trial is for. Hell, if Bush was tried and acquitted by a fair court, I'd be thrilled. That would be justice. But I cannot imagine a realistic defense, he is clearly guilty based on well known facts that he himself has admitted to. But he has a right to his day in court.

    That might be all you and they feel they need but I believe the American people will want more than just the word of this ugly bunch.
    It's not just my opinion, it's the opinion of the US government. When the USA recognizes a sovereign nation's legitimacy, we must act accordingly. We're not talking about some failed state here, we're talking about democracies that the US and the global community at large all recognize as legitimate, uncorrupt, and freely elected, just as they treat our government as such. This is very basic stuff here.

    I'm comparing Bush to other war criminals. Pay attention.

    I don't feel sorry for this guy at all.

    Him, and people like him, are the real threat to the world. They believe in the legitimacy and naked power of a faceless and unelected authority who will have 'jurisdiction' over all our lives.

    Where have we heard this before?

    I beg to differ. People who care about justice want to see Bush tried.

    Sounds to me like a conviction without a trial on your part. I don't have a lot of respect for decisions made based upon ignorance.

    Then you should have plenty of respect for my decision based on detailed analysis of the facts. And, come to think of it, you should have no respect for your own position based on a breathtaking ignorance of the law.

    Hitler had Hess, Goering and Himmler. Bush had Pelosi and Kerry. why are you giving Bush's coconspirators a pass?
    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.

    There are ignorant people all over this country, single issue people who base their decisions based upon words vs. actual facts. GW Bush hasn't been proven guilty of torture since waterboarding wasn't defined as torture. Waterboarding hurt no one and saved lives. That is good enough for the majority in this country with only the kooks keeping this issue alive.
