A question on a point of law...

...obviously, since congress granted Monkey Boy the authority to go play cowboy around the world, there's no legal standing there, and since he and his crew feared getting the Milosoviching they knew they would ultimately so sorely deserve, they ran away screaming from the World Court issue, there's no chance for any relief in that corner ---


-- y'think it might be possible to use that Sam Watterston Law and Order standby -- "Depraved Indifference to Human Life" to prosecute for 1,683 counts of Murder 2? Or at the least, 1600+ counts of "reckless endangerment" (2d Degree Manslaughter)

'Cause when you're hiding out behind a wall of security 7000 miles away, shouting "Bring 'em on" is a "Let's you and him fight" cry -- the kind of craven crap this poor excuse for human protoplasm has been doing all his life...

JULY 2, 2005 -- 2d Anniversary of “BRING ‘EM ON”

By Stan Goff

On July 2, 2003, George W. Bush, caught up in his own bluster, uttered the words, “Bring ‘em on,” in response to a reporter’s question about the dismaying frequency of a supposedly vanquished foe in Iraq.

On that day, only 65 American troops had been killed since May, when George W. Bush was flown onto the deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln to deliver a victory speech, backgrounded by a huge sign that stated, “Mission Accomplished.”

A lot has happened since them.

Most significantly, no mission has been accomplished, and the Iraqi resistance apparently accepted his challenge to “Bring ‘em on.”

Over 1,748 American corpses who used to be fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters, grandsons and grand-daughters, nieces and nephews, friends and neighbors, have been flown out of Iraq. Most estimates are that more than 15,000 Americans have been wounded, many severely. And the human cost for Iraqis themselves – death, grief, and pain – is currently incalculable but certainly measured in the hundreds of thousands.

It’s easy to talk trash from the White House, where its chief resident has attended one funeral while in office – that of the Pope. No dead soldier’s family has had him cross its threshold.

Stan Goff is more than adequately articulate on the meaning of that/this day in our history.
