This is no surprise, the shrub put a lot of diplomatic effort into getting most countries to sign a treaty which basically says "It's not a war-crime if Americans did it".

Even if the International Court of Justice indicts Bush for his crimes, he can safely travel to Australia, as we've agreed to exempt _all_ Americans.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Good! You can keep him.

I think the only thing Congress accomplished is incriminating themselves in aiding and abetting war crimes -- simply more crooks to hang. Congress can pass no law legalizing torture because our Constitution prohibits that.

If we look at the Nuremberg Trials as an example, we'll also be able go after the propagandists who passed on the lies that enabled war crimes -- Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, Roger Ailes, Rupert Murdoch, etc.

Rank and file Nazi party members were also imprisoned and "retrained." So we can go after Republican Party Members -- even people who have written letters to editors or posts on internet forums could be prosecuting for aiding and abetting war crimes. Precedent has been sent. Be sure to save your archives Snaggy!

A felony conviction would bar people from voting and tip political scales for years. This could be a new world here in the new world.
