Matt Eisenbrandt in Embassy Mag : The case for Canadian prosecution of George W. Bush

"The government has recently taken a very public position that Canada should not be a safe haven for alleged torturers and war criminals. To open its doors yet again to Mr. Bush sets a disturbing double standard."

For his sake, bush II better just slowly throw himself at the feet of the RCMP officers who come to arrest him or he'll end up tasered to death.

Or is it crazy to imagine that our national police force cares about international law and arresting war criminals?

Alison said...

Yes it's crazy. They know their job is to protect Bush&Bill from the protesters.

thwap said...

Yeah. Killing innocent people without power is more their speed.

Shit. I'm pretty narrow. I just noticed: $600 a head?

Who but a fucking greed-head asshole scum-bag would pay six-hundred bucks to watch a stammering moron drool into a microphone?

Fuck-faced monsters.

Alison said...

Thwap : Who indeed. See update.
