You might remember that a few Christmases ago, what I wanted was George Bush on trial at the Hague.
Close enough. And with a little luck, maybe this will catch on.
And if you’re still feeling all patriotic about the war in Iraq, I strongly suggest that you also look at the U.S. government’s human rights violations during that time, and think again.
Looking toward the future:
“If President Bush was the President of extra-judicial torture then US President Barak Obama is the President of extra judicial killing through drone strikes. Our work has only just begun.”
Which I regret to say I agree with as well.
War still sucks, regardless of its campaign value. We must endeavor to take the high road.

The only president I’ve seen who didn’t engage in some dubious military bloodshed, casual imprisonment, and other atrocities — remember Paraquat? — except for Ford.
He didn’t have many opportunities, and I could be wrong about him. I had other concerns at the time…
But the presidency does not attract individuals I’d regard as first-rate types. Frankly, Obama’s as good as we’ve gotten, and he’s supported a lot of grisly stuff. At least he hasn’t puked on any heads of state.
