In Response to Re: Dubya cancels Switzerland trip because of threat of arrest and trial.:...
No doubt that if a foreign country or countries were to kidnap within our borders, it would lead to an international incident. However if he, as a private citizen was apprehended outside the country, not kidnapped as Eichmann, it would be up to the courts and the diplomatic community to sort out.
There's no doubt that Bush is aware of the intense dislike for him even here which is probably the reason he has maintained a low profile.
I can't help but believe that our invasion of Panama was an illegal act of war, along with the capture of Noriega and his trial in Federal Court. It seems like a Bush trait to use the military to pursue those they don't like. It wouldn't break my heart to see him, along with Shotgun Cheney and Rumsfield having to explain to a World Court.

Wouldn't break my heart either.
Of course if he's kidnapped it would be by "independent contractors" in any case.
Noriega was kidnapped because he had repeatedly openly bragged that he had Reagan's Vice President in his pocket. No surprise there - of course he did. That was why "Poppy" had been selected in the first place - to manage administer and order all the stuff that no one dared let Reagan know anything about - the old fool would have blurted it out at a most inopportune time.

I have been posting on this subject for some time now. Glad to see someone else picked up on it. Notice none of the far right reb posted on the subject yet.

Well, it's been official for ten days short of a year now - Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and five key advisors are as a matter of legal fact - convicted war criminals.
There probably would be an additional trial if he's ever captured........
