    The point is not rule of law or money, it is about power.

    POWER

    Declaring martial law REMOVES them out of the game. Period.

    Politicians get threaten frequently with folks willing to air tawdry affairs (egawd, how many did Clinton go through?) And I see Senator Kennedy is still, um, err, a Senator. Sex is standard attack politics. Snore.

    Revelation of sex, bribes, whatever, would STILL keep the politician in the game (perhaps they would be responding to attacks, but still in the game).

    Martial law takes them OUT of the game. Permanently.

    That is a loss no politician wants to see.

    When war is considered to be more noble than peace - we have lost everything.
