This just in … Canada charges president for war crimes!
The article was absolutely hilarious …
… protester justified Bush’s arrest with a hypothetical analogy. “Let’s say I heard that my ex-convict neighbor is stockpiling weapons in his apartment. I call the police but they don’t act swiftly enough. So, in order to protect my family from this threat, I take matters into my own hand and break into my neighbor’s home while torturing and killing members of his family. Of course, I do not find any weapons.”
“If justice is to be served, regardless if my claims had proven true, I would be thrown in jail forever for acting like an insane, murdering, vigilante cowboy. All we ask is that George W. Bush – who did the same exact thing in Iraqi on a larger, more horrifying scale – be likewise held accountable.”
But by the time I really thought about it the site was already down (DUH!) … however, I did manage to find a cached version on Google and saved a PDF version for everyone.
Another spoof along these lines can be found here.
— Now, we all know that Bush left Canada just fine after a relatively successful visit. Canada is stepping up a bit and asserting itself as a nation a little more (good to see) … but this is definitely the first step to thaw the chilled border, something I believe is important to both countries. [But … you have to love the humor that ensues]
