The Terrorists that bombed the arena exchange center and the Pentagon are warfare criminals. For some reason people nonetheless hate on Bush although he kept the unemployment below 6% and each due to the fact that Obama took administrative center It has been rising. How might it be timber fault if his entire two phrases had a better economic system than Obamas time in? Bush wasn't perfect...But rattling i might as a substitute have him than Obama. I form of wish Hilary Beat him. At least she helps our troops and would no longer cut as many advantages as Obama has. Us navy families are struggling here!

War Criminal. In a time where it is perfectly legitimate to kill, maim and starve people by the thousands, imprison and torture people without charges or trials, destroy billions of dollars worth of private property we must always remember that there are rules.
Blow someones arms and legs off with high explosives = Cool.
Poison them with Mustard = Now you crossed a line and your no longer a good person.
Burn an entire city (like Dresden, Hiroshima, Nagasaki) to cinders killing tens of thousands of women and children = No problem.
Bomb a school = You MONSTER!!!
Truth is there are hardly any war criminals on the winning side. War criminal is what we call the losers when were not quite done with them yet.

he is a war criminal and if he was not white and rich he would have at least been impeached not matter if he was president or not. Imagine what would have happened to President Obama if he had done the same.

He (and Rumsfeld and Cheney and a few generals, among others) were charged in several countries' courts, but charges dropped when those countries were threatened. For example, in Belgium Bush threatened to stop funding/move NATO headquarters to another country.
Charges were filed against them in the International Criminal Court, which the US, of course, is not a member of.
Here's a thorough article on the topic, including justifications for their being charged as war criminals:

I personally do consider him a war criminal. He and Cheney and the whole clan lied to the American people to get into a war they were determined to fight when the real fight should have been in Afghanistan. Bush let Afghanistan go low key while he sent our troops to die for a revenge agenda on Saddam Hussein. No WMDs, no involvement with 911. He was just determined to go there and didn't care if he lied to the American people and Congress to get what he wanted. That makes him a war criminal in my eyes. He hasn't been prosecuted because he was President of the United States and no one wants the circus that would follow a prosecution.

No. That is just wishful thinking from some on the Left.
As things stand, it is our current president we need to focus on.
