George W. Bush and his gang of neocon warmongers
have destroyed America's reputation. It is likely to stay destroyed, because
at this point the only way to restore America's reputation would be to impeach
and convict President Bush for intentionally deceiving Congress and the American
people in order to start a war of aggression against a country that posed no
threat to the U.S. America can redeem itself only by holding Bush accountable.
As intent as Republicans were to impeach President Clinton for lying about
a sexual affair, they have a blind eye for President Bush's far more serious
lies. Bush's lies have caused the deaths of tens of thousands of people, injured
and maimed tens of thousands more, devastated a country, destroyed America's
reputation, caused one billion Muslims to hate America, ruined our alliances
with Europe, created a police state at home, and squandered $300 billion and
America's reputation is so damaged that not even our puppets can stand the
heat. Anti-American riots, which have left Afghan cities and towns in flames
and hospitals overflowing with casualties, have forced Bush's Afghan puppet,
"President" Hamid Karzai, to assert his independence from his U.S.
overlords. In a belated act of sovereignty, Karzai asserted authority over heavy-handed
U.S. troops whose brutal and stupid ways sparked the devastating riots. Karzai
demanded control of U.S. military activities in Afghanistan and called for the
return of the Afghan detainees who are being held at the U.S. prison in Guantanamo
Bay in Cuba.
Abundant evidence now exists in the public domain to convict George W. Bush
of the crime of the century. The secret
British government memo (dated July 23, 2002) leaked to the Sunday Times
(May 1, 2005) reports that Bush wanted "to remove Saddam, through military
action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence
and facts were being fixed around the policy.
But the case was thin.
Saddam was not threatening his neighbors, and his WMD capability was less than
that of Libya, North Korea or Iran.
The [UK] Attorney-General said that
the desire for regime change was not a legal base for military action. There
were three possible legal bases: self-defense, humanitarian intervention, or
UNSC authorization. The first and second could not be the base in this case.
Relying on UNSCR 1205 of three years ago would be difficult."
This memo is the mother of all smoking guns.
Why isn't Bush in the dock?
Has American democracy failed at home?
