    I'd rather we didn't waste the money.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    No. I mean what Article 5 crime or crimes would you have him tried for?

    No, he's dead, and nothing we do is going to change that. It would just be a waste of money.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Well, if we can accept juristiction via ratification...

    At a minimum, crimes against humanity (5b), like the Ocampo Six.


    ps. Thanks for the copy of Rome, I didn't have one.
