War Criminals to the Left of Me . . .

According to trustworthy news sources, the International Criminal Court said Friday that it has issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin for war crimes, accusing him of personal responsibility for the abductions of children from Ukraine. (Source; AP).

Tonight I also watched the movie “Shock and Awe” which delineated the efforts of just one small newspaper syndicate, Knight-Ridder, during the lead up to the invasion of Iraq, which was the only news outlet that uncovered the truth about the criminal actions of the Bush Administration.

The appalling thing is that neither President Bush, not Vice-president Cheney, nor Condoleezza Rice, nor Donald Rumsfeld, nor any other of the known architects of the false war on Iraq was ever held to account for their actions. Also, the mainstream media, including the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the major TV networks were selling their souls for access to “high government officials” by published stories they hadn’t confirmed.

Over 2 trillion dollars wasted, tens of thousands of U.S. dead and wounded, a hundred thousand Iraqi dead, and not one day spent in jail for the lying assholes who started an unnecessary war.

None of these miscreants has served a day in jail.



  1. And among the wounded are those MANY who (still) suffer from PTSD, let along the after-effects from the multiple toxic chemicals they were exposed to. But Bush and Cheney and the others ride off into the sunset with government pensions to keep them living healthy and luxurious lives.

  3. On the International stage of War Crimes & Human Rights atrocities the three major Superpowers—China, Russia, and the USA—all enjoy complete, discreet impunity in International Courts. It doesn’t require a genius to know why we can be blantent shameful hypocrites when it comes to war. The U.S. has a long history of this. 😡😔
