Should George W Bush be tried for war crimes?
Forget his job title for the moment... that's not going to last much longer... Isn't there a law that states there is no limitation on certain crimes or criminal acts to bring the perpetrator to "justice"?

Of course. He has repeatedly violated the Geneva Convention. And he knows he will be tried. Everyone in his cabinet knows they will eventually go to jail. That's why they're cutting and running... More

He should resign for violating his Oath of office, but he's not man enough for that.

I hope you include Cheney, Rice and the rest, they are as much to blame. Bush was hardly the mastermind here.

There are NO WAR CRIMES committed by George Bush...I guess if you had one to tell us about you would share it with us, but let's face it, this is just a "hate George Bush at all costs" question with no validity or truth attached...you libs should really lose the hatred and try reality every so often.
Answered By: makrothumeo2 - 9/20/2007
Perhaps in your question, you should've sited instances in which you believe he should be charged. We cannot forget his title for the moment, as his actions are all governed by what he must or chooses to do as President.

Name one war crime. You can't. You probably think Hillary will do better. She is more corrupt than her husband. You libs need to grow up and start thinking for yourselves. What you see on TV is not real life.

We've been through this before. He can no more be prosecuted for war crimes than you can. There are no war crimes. Making mistakes does not constitute a crime.
Answered By: carly - 9/20/2007
Only if the democratic senators who also voted for the war, based on the same intelligence Bush received, are also tried. If you want to impeach Bush for anything, it should be failure to protect our borders... Other than infastructure, this is the main purpose of our government.

He has not commited a war crime. Look at the links, he is not guilty of any of them. Sorry, you just have to wait until Jan '09 for him to leave office.

Yes, and after he is convicted of waging aggressive war against Iraq (which was a charge several nazis were convicted of), he and the rest of the high ranking members of his administration should all be tossed into a Supermax prison for the rest of their lives and kept in solitary confinement.

Absolutely not! George Bush has fought for freedom for all! Unlike other presidents, Bush acted. Saddam and his boys, and God knows who else, would take young girls and r**e them for days. They would kill members of families just because one member disagreed with their desires. Saddam used chemicals to wipe out... More

No. He has done what he felt was best. Perhaps he has been advised incorrectly but he did act in what he felt was in the best interest of our country. Many other presidents have done similar things.

Wow, it's so hard for me to take this seriously. Hmm, let me see, do you know the definition of war crimes? Besides, how can he commit war crimes when he's been given the approval of Congress to wage this war? And you can't say it's because the UN didn't approve, because international law states that the US doesn't... More
Answered By: Mark J - 9/20/2007
I see from the most of the answers that people love to remain deceived about the real cause of war. So they don't see any harm in sending our troops to kill people that have done nothing to America. Where is the evidence that Iraq or Afghanistan had anything to do with "terrorist" attacks?

Have all of you previous answerers forgotten how hard Bush fought to try to make torture legal? Even when the anti-torture bill passed by such a wide margin he couldn't veto it, he issued one of his usual signing statements, saying, "I'll enforce it as I see fit." In Bush-speak that means he won't enforce it at all... More
