  1. Al Kyder says:

    Urged. !!

    I demand he be Hanged, like Nuremberg, as a war criminal.

  2. F. Beard says:

    Do it Canada!

  3. Francois Harvey says:

    That will never happen. Canada is a de-facto vassal state. Stephen Harper is neo-con minded. All opposition is divided. Canada as you used to know it is dead.

  4. Marjorie Adam says:

    Fat chance. Dick Cheney was welcomed to Vancouver with open arms in order to promote his book justifying his war criminal activities. They ‘great and the good’ turned out to hang on his every word at the prestigious Vancouver Club and not one of these self-aggrandising ‘elite’ looked in the least bit embarrassed when caught on camera. Quite the contrary!

  5. Robert Mockan says:

    A possible solution to international law being ignored when convenient, would be international bounty hunters. This was suggested originally by critics of how 9/11 resulted in the US attacking sovereign countries without probable cause, murdering innocent civilians, and destroying municipal services, health care facilities, schools, and so on.
    These acts were all war crimes.
    9/11 should have been investigated as a criminal act, of course. The fact it was not and instead used to justify war, by the political “leadership”, is one of the strong basis for “conspiracy” theories it was a false flag operation.
    Maybe time has come for international bounty hunters, even taking the subjects dead or alive. (Oh, wait, we already have that with drone attacks, except that usually always means killing the subjects).

  6. Paul says:

    Won’t happen. Though I wish it would. Arresting Bush would shine the light on Harpo’s Government as being an accomplice to this horror. If we arrest Bush we’ll have to arrest Harpo and Peter Mackay as well.

    I can dream can’t I….They’re all zioterds.

    Paul

  7. Uptic says:

    How did Dick Cheney make out just last month .. ?

  8. generation debt says:

    Can they also arrest Obama for indefinite detention violating habeous corpus as well as crimes against humanity for his war crimes in Libya.

  9. Dementia 5 says:

    Stephen Harper is a Royalist working his hardest to restore the British monarchy’s image and branding in Canada. Do you sincerely believe he will let anyone arrest Bush? lollllllll

  10. Apocalypto says:

    Pfft. Why don’t Americans take out their own trash? It’s even worse than that. Americans are about to vote in new trash. Really sad.

    America has fallen into the gutter.

  11. JonnyJames says:

    Harper is a sycophantic lickspittle who bows down to the Bush crime family, and the US Empire. The Queen appears on the currency, but the US Empire tells Canada when to jump. Canada will eventually privatise their NHS, continue to provide cannon fodder for NATO occupations and do as they are told. Don’t expect any arrests of high-ranking officials in Canada.

  12. Bill says:

    The Canadian government does what the US tells them to do. They busted and gave up Marc Emery as fast as they could.

  13. JonnyJames says:

    As Dr. Paul Craig Roberts and others have stated, the ‘rule of law’ in the US does not exist. The neo-aristocracy is exempt from the law – they have privelege. No banksters, war criminals, financial terrorists – none of the world’s most destructive criminals. The US is a rogue state – a declining imperial power that will cause more wars and destruction before it dies.

  14. trooper dave says:

    If the rules of Nuremberg were applied then Bush should have been hanged. So should Blair. The number of sleaze bag bottom feeding politicians both side of the Atlantic who should have swung from a rope could have been televised and saved the public from Pop goes the X factor dancing on f*****g ice crap.

  15. trooper dave says:

    The war was a public beating by the bully of the world.

  16. trish says:

    @ trooper dave

    the nuremberg trials were more of a d & P show. many of the most powerful nazis that used slave labour to run their factories, went onto to keep their wealth and power and played roles in the govt that came to power after the war.

  17. Canuckistan says:

    Maybe some brave journalist will throw a shoe at him. Oh, I forgot, he can duck shoes pretty good. :-)

  18. trooper dave says:

    @trish. The elites have spats and fights with each other but they ALWAYS protect each other from the masses. Maybe this is why Ukraine is being dissed by the big boys as they have jailed an ex-leader for acting recklessly to the detriment of the Ukraine public. The elites should never be held to account for anything they do by the cattle public

  19. What-me-worry? says:

    Amnesty International has become one of the best ‘urgers’ on the planet. Toothless with no balls and sadly lacking government support in any meaningful way – just like grandma.

  20. Paolo7219 says:

    I sincerely hope Canada has the backbone to arrest George W. Bush. I feel as part of his punishment, the Bush daughters should be sent into combat areas in Iraq/Afghanistan/Pakistan. Have them disarm IED’s. After all, this is the President who had and has no qualms whatsoever sending 5500+ Americans to their deaths in those countries. It’s time for George W. Bush to have some REAL skin in the “game” of war. Obviously, I know this will not happen–the Bush daughters are safe– but it would be doing justice to a war criminal (Bush) and honor those who were sent into combat. I submit that their lives are as valuable as the Bush daughters. And this sentence for Bush (which of course will never be carried out) is NOT any more cruel than what Bush has inflicted on the whole country.

  21. Casper S. says:

    I for one am urging Don Quixote to keep charging that ol’ dragon/windmill thing there. I just love symbolic displays of outrage and so on.

    On the otherhand, the outraged should perhaps have thought a little deeper last election when the 40% of the Canadian public who didn’t vote elected the candidate who 17% of the public voted for.

    Or maybe they don’t “do” the “math thing”.

    Whatever.

  22. Casper S. says:

    PS to my previous post..

    Perhaps the “math thing” is the reason some of us are rich and others are not? I may be wrong, but I tend to find that the “math doers” have more assets than those who don’t “do the math thing”. Odd, eh?

  23. railroad tycoon says:

    Idiotic.

  24. F. Beard says:

    Perhaps the “math thing” is the reason some of us are rich and others are not? Casper S.

    Usury and loans from the counterfeiting cartel must help a lot too.

  25. Citizen119 says:

    OK it’s a long shot, but couldn’t the OWS movement do him for

    Impersonating a President of the United States?

    Should be able to make that one stick.

  26. Flopot says:

    Friends of the US…beware!!!!

    Hey, don’t look at me – he said it first! *points at Kissinger*

    Prediction: Canada subsumed by the US.

  27. Apocalypto says:

    I used to think living right beside the U.S. was a great thing. What was I thinking? And Americans like to make jokes about Canada? *face palm* It’s not Canada’s job to deal with America’s evil and retarded politicians.

    Americans need to get the fuck off their sofas and deal with their own trash.

  28. JailBanksters says:

    I love that word ‘urged’, it has a sense of urgency about it.
    Sort of like I urge you to not cheat on your tax forms.

    So we have a bunch of Tax Avoiders sitting in a tower somewhere
    ‘urging’ somebody else do something about somebody else.

  29. Keehotee says:

    Speaking of Canada being a vassal state – Rob Kirby’s newest efforts worth a read, specially for all you canucks

  30. Mary Genoud says:

    Canada can do what Geneva did last year, rescind the invitation until further inquiry clarifies the use of torture during Bush’s administration. Polite and to the point.
