Are they all war criminals?

ARTHUR MAX, Associated Press (3/3/11) writes …

  • The International Criminal Court will investigate Libyan leader Moammar Kadhafi and his inner circle, including some of his sons, for possible crimes against humanity in the violent crackdown on anti-government protesters, the prosecutor said Thursday.
  • “No one has the authority to attack and massacre civilians,” the prosecutor said.

LMW COMMENT …

  • Kadhafi’s behavior has been and remains atrocious, resulting in the deaths of many innocent civilians.
  • So was the behavior of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, when they invaded Iraq, a country that had never attacked the U.S. This was clearly a war of choice, sold to Congress and the American people and then waged under demonstrably false pretences. They lied about WMD and hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians and soldiers died as a result.

      There is no question that Lyndon Johnson’s lies about Vietnam were as bad as the Bush/Cheney lies about Iraq.

      The Lies continue and are not limited to a single political party. The US kills innocent people around the world every day. Claiming that they are all “suspected terrorist” and we the US does not need to abide by international law. No jury no trial no facts to stop the war machine. The president has even stated he has the authority to order the killing an American citizen because he is a suspected terrorist.
