Scenes some would like to see ...

Just for fun for on Monday morning:



Trial Picture

Defendants in the dock at the Ango-American War Crimes Trial of 2010, held at The Hague under the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court.

Of the 20 defendants shown here -- the so-called "Republican Guard" -- only one (Alan Greenspan, second row, second from right) was found not guilty, on the grounds that the destruction of the American economy and the global financial crash of 2008, while regrettable, did not constitute war crimes as defined by the Geneva Convention.

Another defendant (Ari Fleischer, front row, extreme right) received only a light sentence, as the court determined that lying to the American people was too common a crime to merit more severe punishment.

In a more controversial decision, former Secretary of State Colin Powell was spared any prison time at all, after the judges ruled that being seated between former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Richard Myers for the entire eight-month trial constituted "punishment enough."

Former Vice President Richard Cheney (second row, extreme left), who feigned narcolepsy throughout most of the trial, was committed to the newly established United Nations Hospital for the Criminally Insane, as was former National Security Advisor and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice (next to Cheney), who insisted on being addressed as "Mrs. Bush" during the the trial.

The remaining defendants were sentenced to life terms at the Guantanamo War Crimes Penitentiary -- the same facility used to imprison the remaining leaders of the Al Qaeda terrorist organization, whose own war crimes trial began shortly after this picture was taken.

Methinks some folks are rather hostile towards this thread ... :eek:


What's wrong with you people? Don't you think Bush should be impeached and be bound over for war crimes against humanity? ;)

I'm not hostile, I quite liked it. I just imagined your brain is a mass of images like that...

Personally I think Bush should be taken back to the jungle to be reunited with his birth parents...

No, I just hope you posted it in private so that nobody could catch your "onanization". I prefer pr0n, myself.

In some ways I'd love to see it attempted, and have people actually try to prove something. But the foregone conclusion is that Clin-Ton was pure as the driven snow and had no responsibility in these affairs. It would be a kangaroo court if you had your way...

Why do you hate laws?

Laws

I like laws.

Laws that can result in an impeachement procedure.....

Come on.... Bush is insanely stupid; he shouldn't be president of the USA!!!

David.

EDIT: I'd definitely walk over to the ICC to watch that trial if it ever took place, llad!

Wishful thinking and patently untrue. Unless you want to pretend that the first Prez who got an MBA is insane & stupid.

"Crazy like a fox" would be appropriate; for all of Kerry's nuanced and erudite thought, he came off looking like a total putz. Shrub's "Aw, shucks" routine resonated with the voters.

On a completely separate note, that is some of the worst photoshopping I have ever seen. I had to stop looking after about the second face.

Yeah pretty weak photo-shopping but hey; I thought it was pretty funny....

But jmervyn: you can't possibly think Bush jr. is an intelligent guy; no matter what kind of a degree he gets?!?!

I'm not sure 'crazy like a fox' is really it. Generally I'd expect people who are 'crazy like a fox' to at least know which way round to hold a book.

Saying that, your right about Kerry. I might not agree with some of the stuff Bush says, but I'd much rather talk to him than Kerry. I wonder if he came from the same cloning facility as Al Gore...

Define intelligence. Then explain why intelligence is important in a leader.

I don't think he's a rocket scientist, but then we're approaching the whole smarts vs. morals left-right debate ground. That's been done to death hereabouts. I'm more interested in how the administration works, and the GOP has had the upper hand more often than not from what I've seen & read about their cabinets. Dems tend to think that having one really smart guy as an overlord is a good way to run a gov't...

Would you settle for cunning?

EDIT - Namy, speaking of Photoshopping...

I've said it before and i'll say it again, I don't think Harvard is quite at the stage that it will give out free, unearned, masters degrees. And to get one you need to have a slightly higher IQ than the average.

Personally, i'd like to see some better arguements as to why Bush is an idiot. Sure he speaks kinda funny (accent anyone?) and makes the odd mistake when speaking in public (as have the most intelligent scientists, philosophers and mathematicians in their time) but beyond making great material for Dead Ringers they don't much water as evidence to me.

Sure, he may not get into Mensa, but then neither will most of us. And yet, there are very few here that I wound not call intelligent, and none that I would call stupid (though I may often call them grossly mistaken ;)).

Intelligence

Well, you're right that intelligence probably isn't the most important trait to have as a president; in that sense cunning might be an asset. If he is; I don't know.

And BTW Dead Ringers do a great job at making fun of W...... great show!

But..... I can't believe he got that MBA!!! He comes across as being pretty stupid to me.... OK it became pretty popular to dig some "idiot-facts" up about the pres. but he can't be smart; didn't they just "help" him out on that title; I thought all he did over there at Harvard was drugs..... or is that another lie? That's just what we here in Holland hear!

And now you see just what the right-wingers in the U.S. are saying about a press bias. The fact that this man, who is more of an intellectual than people like Teddy Kennedy or Al Sharpton (who you may not even know of), is ridiculed on a constant basis is just part of normal politics for the U.S.

Do you really think that Chirac planted the stupidity remark for no reason? Carter is a far greater moron, but he's a darling of the left.

Sharpton, isn't that the black christian guy from NY? Reverent or something?

Reagan wasn't too bright either, was he now?

But..... ah well, people just like to make fun of him.

It does help trying to make him less credible/fit for presidency (not knowing what country he's in. Reading books upside down.)

David.

p.s.: I just don't like his foreign policy, that's all.

Its probably a blessing in disguise, its the smart leaders you've got to worry about...

And to be honest its to role of the media to make fun of the political leaders. At least Bush provides funny incidents, I suspect if Kerry had got in, these 4 years would have been very dull indeed.

I many ways it proves his human and in general people like that. And apparently his fluent in Spanish, which I supose it means theres at least one language he can speak well.

Who knows 10 years time you could have Arnie as president...

Christian is a substantial misnomer in many people's opinion. But yes, he is referred to as the Rev. Al Sharpton. Perhaps the Rev. Ian Paisley would have been a better comparison.

And one logically would wonder why you need to make fun of our President and impeach his credibility so badly. And you're in Holland - so what's the excuse for the American media? Trying to increase sales? FOX, WABC (radio) and others have made a mint doing the opposite.

DaviddeJong said:

You're kidding me. I never would have guessed.
On a more serious note, do you have any real idea of what his foreign policy really is, or are you just regurgitating what the media claims it is? Most Americans settle for the latter, which is why people like Mikey Moore claim we're the 'stupidest people on the planet'...
