    You're post is foolishness, of course.

    The information on the nature of Militant Islam is freely available. The serious student is advised to begin with a study of the Koran, Hadith and current popular movements in Traditional Islamic regimes, and to set aside the comfortable, and objectionable modern tendency amongst the fearful to invent imaginary evils instead of confronting actual ones.

    Courage is essential to survival in a hostile world, after all. A few moments of honest reflection will reveal the wisdom of this fact to all but the most intransigently timid.

    A Perusal of the history of Islamic conquest is from the Middle Ages forward is also not to be neglected.

    Carry on.

    I said that for ME it's not a right vs left issue.

    And it's hardly just the die hard Bush bashers, Cindy Sheehans, etc. that are calling for it too. But go ahead and keep thinking that.
    We live at a time when emotions and feelings count more than truth, and there is a vast ignorance of science.

    Call it what you will, but I don't think Islam is anything you need courage to face. It's just a religion. Like Christianity, Judism, Hinduism, etc. And if you're going to make a case for something, like going to war, it is up to YOU to present your evidence. It is not up to me to find it for you. Especially, when the evidence in question doesn't exist. If it did, produce it. If it didn't, then ****ing drop it!

    Now don't go off in a huff.

    The evidence is as I took pains to express, readily available and indeed it is up to you to avail yourself of the painfully abundant data.

    Since you lump all religions together, you have made it clear that you are not yet ready to employ serious consideration of these issues. Perhaps some later maturity will incline you towards a study of the differences between for instance, Protestantism, which is generally not involved with decapitating hostages, and Militant Islam, which is.

    I understand, we all have things that are fearful to face.

    The course of wisdom though, is to allow the more courageous, and informed to deal with the more painful and difficult issues that civilization faces.

    Please feel free to comment when you have addressed certain obvious and prominent vacuities in your awareness, where these issues are concerned.

    I neither right nor left and while I don't support war crimes trials, and I don't not support them either, I certainly don't think Bush and Cheney are innocents or have not done very bad things.

    Certainly not all non-leftists love Bush or the neocons.

    Slander? Hardly, just truth.

    As far as International law, that largely fictional body of silliness, I can hardly prevent the World Community® from presenting a case. I assume that if they have one to make they will, and they won't need Mr. Annan's questionable help to do so.

    Of course they won't. They're too spineless to mount a serious campaign to get him in the dock. The best we can hope for is that Bush gets his war criminal ass gunned down on the street or shoed to death by angry Iraqis.
