    News from this week -- an important conviction for crimes:

    The day after the convictions were announced, the EU announced it would go ahead with an investigation:

    Since George Walker Bush* is so comfortable with his decidering I'm sure he wouldn't mind going through a trial for war crimes.

    *I'm drawing a parallel -- suggested by Biden -- between war criminals (and the need for prosecution).  I am not suggesting Bush had anything to do with war crimes in the Balkans, or that his crimes are the same as those reported above (harvesting organs for profit from prisoners).

    Vote rape. Vote torture. Vote War Crimes. Vote with the American top 1%.

      But what else is sound is the fact that we will never know the true extent and magnitude of the war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan until they're fully investigated, and that includes investigating what crimes were facilitated indirectly by Bush's torture industry.

      Thanks for the links. Plenty of reading.

        GITMO: Forced feeding is torture.
        "Attorney General" Eric Holder should also be prosecuted for complicity in war crimes.
        President Obama, this is your legacy.
