    Who knows, we blew the **** out of so many places with him. Though he didn't quite bog us down in an area for over 10 years. So I guess that's something.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    No such thing as "international law", as far as I'm concerned.

    I'm all for prosecuting him if an investigation turned something up. Our leaders should not be above the law. And the United States acting with unilateral military power only makes the world more chaotic, not less.

    It's not up to anyone else either, unless you want to travel to the Hague and hang out in kangaroo court.

    International "tall poppy syndrome" runs rampant, evidenced in the fact that everyone has all the answers for the United States...and nobody has the balls to put up or shut up.

    Must be fun to be comfortably snarky behind the weeds.

    well there you have it
    don't want to be compliant with a law
    voila! simply pretend that such law does not exist
    see how easy that was
    too bad it doesn't work that way

    Interview with Scott Ritter

    It was very clever how the US and the UK manipulated the UN and set Iraq up.....



    Personally, I don't think Bush knew or saw the real intelligence until long after the damage was done. I think he was manipulated just like the UN and Saddam were and by the very same people.

    Shortley after Bush took office the US was supposed to ratify the International Criminal Court Treaty. He was advised by John Bolton not to sign it....


    John R. Bolton - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In short, GWBush can't be tried as a war criminal by the ICC. Nor can John Bolton, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Dick Cheney, Don Rumsfeld, Elliott Abrams, Richard L. Armitage, William J. Bennett, Paula Dobriansky, Robert Kagan, William Kristol, R. James Woolsey, Robert B. Zoellick and the Neocon list goes on.....
    Hussein set himself up. He was more scared of Iran than us, so he made sure we all were convinced he had WMDs. He said so himself.
