Democrats.com is pounding the impeachment drum. AfterDowningStreet.org is clambering for a reason to exist. Together, they are trying to turn December 10 from Human Rights Day into Impeachment Day. Check it out here.
While I’m all for giving the buggers their due, for forcing accountability up the bung holes of government, the time for impeachment is past. There simply is not enough time left in G. Warmonger Bush’s presidency to pull it off. It would take at least a year to gather all the information and prep it for litigation. There’s quite a bit out there. Just sifting through all his crimes to parse out the strongest arguments would take months. By then we’d have only a year left to affect the impeachment - or less, perhaps. We’d be cutting things thin enough for the remaining Republicans to shuffle their feet a bit and, before we know it, the dude’s back at the ranch, smirk and all.
No. Impeachment is not an option. But there’s more than one way to skin a fat cat. I’d like to wait until the perps are out of office, then try them for war crimes. We can practice on Rummy. Are their statutes of limitation to human rights abuses? For war profiteering? I’m sure the Geneva conventions revisionism is prime fodder for litigious inclinations. On top of that, let’s sue the war profiteers, then give the money to military families adversely affected by Our National Sham(e). Let them that got us into this pay for the right to use American blood to leverage personal profit.
Sue them. Try them. Lock them up. See what their money buys them in prison.
