Why is that? There are federal laws that cover war crimes. I would think that he would be prosecuted under federal law, which likely encompass violations of international law. Personally, I would like to see him tried in an international court, preferably one that takes the Nuremburg Principles into account. He wouldn't get a fair trial in the US. Reality is that no US court would prosecute a President for war crimes.If Obama wanted to pursue the previous administrations war crimes he would have to turn GW over to the Hague.
Hell yeah, the guy is a ****ing war criminal, responsible for the death of hundreds of thousands of innocent people, 1/3 of these were children.Is that what you want?
Of course not, for the reason I stated. He committed similar war crimes, give or take. And he's still committing them because Bush hasn't been charged.Obama clearly does not.
That's irrelevant, criminals need to be prosecuted. Otherwise the crimes are repeated by future administrations who would act under the premise that they can get away with genocide. These war criminals reflect badly on the nation and the Presidency without being charged of any crimes.It would reflect badly on the Presidency and the nation.
That's your prerogative, I don't believe in letting war criminals off the hook, for any reason.As much as I would like to see GW rotting in jail, I have to agree.
The politicians protect their own.
