  3. I am so heartened that you are mentioning this ‘unmentionable’ in these waning hours of possibility. DS is irrevocably on record as advocating for the proper protocol and the rule of law, all along.

    Impeachment is clearly the correct, the legal, the constitutional thing to do. Now is the time. Now will always be the time, until it’s too late, and then it will need to be the time for indictment (by any other name).

    This administration conducted EPIC crimes against humanity, and must never be let rest (Ya HEAR that Rummy? Yer goin’ DOWN, you vile miserable mass-murdering, torturing miscreant! BE AFRAID! It’s eternal HELL ON EARTH for you hideous horrible half-wit mass-murdering goons– do you, and Woulfovitz realize what you did?? CONDI?

    May they never, ever rest, ever. May they suffer the pain of incineration in hell (for once I find myself wishing such a myth actually exists) as did countless innocents in life, who died horrible deaths, and suffered unimaginable wounds, simply for your arrogant abuse of militarism, and meddling in a known tinderbox of jihadist violent disease.

    You KNEW this would happen. YOU Neocons are to blame (as is each and every civilian who ever once supported this war).

    WE who marched in the streets were RIGHT (you all were wrong). WE said NO, you said WAR.


    Dennis would clearly (not) concur, but apparently even he seems more interested in economic issues than further hunting down these psychopaths. Hmmmm. Musta been some heavy intimidation to get Dennis to dance on O’reilley as he did (if only in a few words).

    No amount of economic vicissitude takes precedent over warcrimes. Think about it. We are not talking about problems paying the mortgage, we’re talking about bombing weddings with unfathomable fire and shrapnel by mistake (so much for ‘surgical strikes’) with no provocation.

    I would contend that people don’t really realize the horrific consequences for the civilians of Iraq that our complicity in this war conspired to create.

    Precedents must not allowed to be set, but more importantly, all this horror for naught must be confronted and taken to ask.

    Without accountability, there can be no morality nor ethics to the failing experiment of the USA.

    • New name, I see. Thank for your commentary, Impeach Now.

      War crimes, torture, lying to get us into war, the list goes on and on. Someone/everyone involved need to be held accountable. Why the Dems won’t proceed, I don’t know?? Maybe the illegal wiretapping has been used on them, perhaps?
