No, I don't think being a moron is a criminal offense. Its hard to charge someone with crimes when they have the people who make the laws at their disposal, and America views international law as a kangaroo court.

What crimes has he committed? Yeah he is a horrible president, but everything that he has done has been legal.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 7/11/08 - 9:28:12 AM EST (GMT-5)
No. Wouldn't they have done it already?
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 7/11/08 - 9:48:58 AM EST (GMT-5)
No. Once he's out of office, people will forget about Bush and start hating McCain...

Because the dem's are campaigning against Bush again. The "Hate Bush" rhetoric isn't going to get them elected...

No .. George Bush had been around for quite a while now and as a sign of respect they should not do that too him , altough that we all hate him.

He illegally invaded Iraq for starters. He allowed the CIA to set up secret prisons that defied the Geneva Convention. He refused to let the Red Cross visit Guantanamo detainees. He made up his own law that the president can supercede Congress, basically making the checks and balances portion of the Constitution null and void. Plus there's a lot of evidence he was involved in the Valerie Plame CIA scandal as well. With all the crimes we do know he's committed, just imagine how many we don't know about.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 7/11/08 - 1:54:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
There isn't even any evidence that the Plame thing was illegal. The Iraq invasion was not illegal. The "secret prisons" did not violate the Geneva convention- - besides, that is not a criminal issue. What law did GWB "make up" that supercedes congress?
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 7/11/08 - 1:55:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
^ what law did he break when he invaded Iraq? What law did he break? why would you have to let the red cross into guantanamo? wouldn't that be a little silly? i mean if I had a bunch of important prisoners in my basement I am not going to let some people who i don't know/can't trust in to make sure that they are being fed well...

you can't be arrested for changing the balance of power in government. if he did something unconstitutional then he could have been impeached, but clearly congress didn't think he had crushed them enough to do that.

as for the geneva convention you have to remember that there is no international law that the us (or any other country) is subject to except by its own compliance (although sanctions can be implemented to attempt to compel compliance). he wouldn't be arrested for that

I repeated my first sentence twice by mistake, not for emphasis. just seems silly and like I slipped into a shirill voice by mistake. haha

Saddam violated the ceasefire agreement that stopped the Gulf War. This gave the US full authority to continue hostilities against Iraq...

It is nice that you actually found 1 legitimate news source (out of the 4 links you posted) though. If Annan felt so strongly that the war was illegal, why didn't the UN pass any sort of resolution sanctioning the US for the actions?

They haven't even gotten a consensus on impeachment in the past 7 years- - nobody is going to bother with Bush once he's out of office...

Bush hasnt commited any crime nor any war crime
so they cant charge him with anything

I believe you misunderstood my point (although I didn't thoroughly read all those links). it is a war, some other country saying that it is "illegal" doesn't mean anything. the us is a sovereign nation. what that means is that it is subject to no laws but its own. unless invading iraq went against an american law, then it wasn't illegal in any meaningful sense.

unethical, imprudent, you could argue that. illegal, not so much.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 7/12/08 - 1:40:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
Actually, if the UN says it's illegal, it is. We go by their rules. Or at least, we used to.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 7/12/08 - 5:55:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
why would that happen?

Kofi Annan never had the authority to speak as the UN. His opinion on the legality of the war is political rhetoric unless the UN actually holds a vote on the issue and passes a resolution against GWB or the war...
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 7/13/08 - 1:52:24 AM EST (GMT-5)
the only way this could happen is if they find some irregularities in his income, just like Capone.

If they were to charge him for any crime.. it would be a crime against humanity. Nothing he has done was humane in anyway. guantanamo? EVen if they were prisoners of war, they have prisoner rights. WHats happening there is illegal and inhumane.. Anyone who doesnt see that is blind and biased. As for Iraq... his claimed reason was that iraq had weopons of mass destruction which was no there. None of the iraqis asked help from USA... yet they have to be heros and save the day.. which they didnt. Why do you think soldiers are killed there...coz they are liked and appreciated??? ofcourse not! Bush has brought nothing but hatred and shame to the US. He has even bestowed upon his people the hate that he has taken from all other citizens of diff. countries. Now not only bush is hated... even americans are. Coz they have chosen to re-elect him! Keep up the good work people!!!

No. I don't think it will do anything but further polarize the US into two extreme groups.

It seems that you were wrong in your assessment of who would become president...
