    Nonsense. Let's put criminals on trial for their crimes. If we want to hold Rwandan torturers accountable, then we have to hold American torturers accountable too.

    Yes, really. All war criminals should really stand trial, really. Anything else I can clear up for you?

    War crimes. You people are a joke. The "Greatest Generation" dropped two atomic bombs in Japan on civilian cities. Hitler massacred millions and millions of civilians as a matter of policy and machine. Today, our presidents waterboard 4 people and kill some civilians via legitimate military targetting and the weaker of our society wish in vain to drag the nation through the gutter. Pathetic.

    The problem is that civilians today tend to believe whatever is presented in front of them and are absolutely hungry to self-flaggilate in order to prove to the world how better they are. In the end, they just look foolish in their quest to brand everything a war crime.

    Civilians die in all wars, but calling them collateral damage is revolting. Dead babies are not collateral damage, just dead babies. We have stepped up to take Great Britans place in the world. The English have apparently gotten tired of wasting all their money fighting for corporation greed. But not to worry, we will take on the burden. Corporate wars are immoral, and ought to be illegal. The real reason for the war in Iraq was that their oil profits were given to the people of Iraq. World oil corporations could not tolerate that. The first thing we did in Iraq is privatize their oil. Killing civilians or soldiers for that is wrong. If you think I am wrong about the reason for the war, go back to the first thing we did, privatizing the oil.

    Well, let's look at this. You began with a self-righteous tone about what is and is not collateral damage. Dead babies are just dead babies, right? To the military mission, civilainsdeaths are unfortunate and we have spent billions of dollars perfecting precision weapons to alleviate this burden of war. But in the end, dead babies are collateral damage.

    For over ten years, we watched and insured dead babies throughout Iraq via UN sanctions because we were too stupid as a Western people to finish the Gulf War. No care for those babies? After 9/11, a man named Osama Bin Laden (remember him?) used our decrepit mission over Iraq as an excuse for 3,000 dead Americans. Whether you wish to attribute this to corporate greed or not, this war had to be finished once and for all. But in your quest to hate on the war in Iraq (merely part two of the same war), you completely dismissed the little dead babies in Iraq throughout the 90s,didn't you? You seem to be a humanitarian of convenience. Very leftist of you.

    It's obvious from this one post that you haven't thought about the entire event at all. Just passing on the rhetoric of the anti-war protestor's bumper sticker.

    Depends. What is the argument for Bush being a war criminal?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    No. Bush tortured people, and excused torture. If I were seeking prosecution I would start there. Did Obama do this? If so, bring him up. Bush started a needless war. Not sure that is a "WAR CRIME" per sa, but it should be a crime of some sort. If Obama starts one the same war, charge him under whatever law that shoud fit.
