Should George W. Bush be tried for treason and war crimes?

  • Bush Lied. Unjustified War.

    George W. Bush mislead the American people into a bloody conflict in Iraq that was completely unnecessary. The Bush administration, history has shown, orchestrated a huge, blatant, complete, falsehood to justify the second gulf war. The Bush administration knowingly did this with extreme hubris. Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, and Powell should all be tried in the world court and if found guilty should all hang. Bush used the resources: Esp. American military, American tax money, to start a war of "personal" fulfillment. Remember Bush said that Saddam Hussein, quote: "He tried to kill my daddy!" American companies loved the unjust war because their profits went through the roof. Tutu said the Iraq was the most destabilizing event in history. Tutu call for Bush and Blair to be prosecuted for war crimes in the world court. I agree most sincerely.

  • Yes, he invaded Iraq because of unfounded claims.

    He invaded Iraq on false & unjustified claims. He coordinated the US military machine to take control of a people and region without consent or the need for US intervention. He killed upwards of a million people. "The Iraq war “has destabilized and polarized the world to a greater extent than any other conflict in history,” wrote Tutu, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1984."

  • He should be tried!

    It's never too late to bring justice. It's never too late to recognize tyranny and corruption and deal with it. If we say "well, he's out of office now, what good would it do?". The answer is in the question. It would do some good. It would show public officials that there is no statute of limitations on crimes committed by public officials. It would show them that we will hold them accountable for their actions no matter how long the process takes. He should be tried, and if found guilty, hung on the mall in Washington D.C. Publicly. Televise it around the entire planet.

  • Bush knew about 9-11 before it happened. I believe he was the one who helped plan the whole thing.

    All the evidence is right in your face and so obvious that it's a slap in the face insult to the american peoples' intelligence... Why the cover ups of all the evidence? Why was all the physical evidence swept away before the the 9-11 commission could investigate it. Why was building 7 demolished? And it all was so obvious to be controlled demolitions.. I could go on.. And on.. But won't.. Why bother?

  • Bush guilty of lying to the American people.

    The Bush Administration killed over 4,000 American soldiers and thousands more Iraqis. He's a murderer and has lied to the American people. He and his administration are criminal on the highest levels and need to be brought to justice before there is revolution. Bringing Bush and his administration to justice will also serve to warn and discourage the next administrations from using false flag tactics to take the citizenry to war against their moral wishes. We're living in a new economic-social-political paradigm where the free world, knows the origins of political power and will not tolerate such oppression by fascist entities. The next generation revolution will be worldwide where the power elite can not be protected. We now have complete transparency and are able to target specific perpetrating factions. The Bush administration will pay for the wrongs they have committed starting today. The American, fascist dictatorship is beginning to unravel today. But we must show the world that, we're not afraid to prosecute our own.

  • Yes he should

    The war has destabilised a large region. No WMDs were found, nor any ties with al-qaeda(usa's unofficial army). The bombings were indiscriminate. They used bombs with. Depleted uranium. Civilian centres were deliberately targeted. No proof that Iraq was going to attack usa in any form was found. POW were badly treated and filmed. Some organisations tell that POWs were used for organ harvesting

  • Bush ... Or somebody.

    The U.S. Is a signatory to the 1984/1987 United Nations Convention against Torture, which defines torture as "Any act by which severe pain or suffering, whether physical or mental, is intentionally inflicted on a person for such purposes as obtaining ... Information ..." U.S. Government officials have said they do not believe waterboarding to be a form of torture --- but it's not up to them to decide that (not to mention use a double standard: in World War II, the United States tried and executed Japanese soldiers for waterboarding American prisoners of war). Article 4 Section 1 of the the Convention requires that "Each State Party shall ensure that all acts of torture are offenses under its criminal law." What is the rationale for the U.S. Ignoring its obligations under the Convention to prosecute these offenses?

  • The evidence is there.

    This draft dodger, after carefully using his family's influence to avoid his own generations war in Vietnam, sent our boys to die in Iraq based on complete lies to the American people, and sneakily used his influence and all his cronies in Washington to get around it and avoid justice for his crimes. He should be punished just like any other common criminal. My good sir, if the shoe fits, do wear it. You are a criminal. You have done our nation worse than just about any president in our history. You couldn't be a worse president if you had lit the Statue of Liberty on fire and encouraged secession. There is simply no one worse than you, you disgusting, pitiful sack of crap, you criminal, you disgust me, I hope you do pay for your crimes against America one day. If not the American justice system, you'll indeed have god to answer to one day for all the crimes you've committed and the lives you've taken. You make me sick.

  • No. No one person can be blamed for what happened.

    The war crimes that so many people are trying to prosecute President Bush for were not his call alone. Congress, other members of staff, and other world leaders all played a very big part in what happened. Do I agree with everything that the president did? No. But do I think he committed war crimes in doing it? No. I would much rather spend that effort keeping this type of thing from happening ever again.

  • I think at this point it would be silly.

    What's the point now? He shouldn't have been voted into a second term, he shouldn't have become our president in the first place. But now it would be like beating a dead horse. I highly doubt he would learn anything. He's a complete idiot, let him just wither away into an old, dumb man.

  • H.J.Res. 114 (107th): Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002

    The Resolution was debated for a year. Citizens had their chance to contact their representatives. The House voted affirmative 296 - 133 , 81 Democrats voted yes. The Senate voted yes 77/22. Democrats voted in majority including Senators Schummer, Kerry, Reid and the democrats Presidential 2016 candidate Clinton. These same democrats turned in 2 years against the war and then when in power supporting Obama pulled U S Troops out of Iraq. This after Obama and Biden bragged that Iraq was stable. This move helped create ISIS. The response on this debate page are so way out left. Really no debate at all.

  • Congress voted for the warS.

    Bush I, Clinton, and every member of Congress since 1990 that authorized military action would have to be tried right along with Bush II. The history of Saddam's actions and the INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENT regarding Saddam's stockpiles of WMDs and history of non-compliance kinda blows the "Bush lied" mantra out of the water. The WMDs were there. The UN documented the existence of the WMDs. The question remains: what happened to the WMDs that the UN had documented, but not destroyed, that were in Iraq when Saddam stopped complying with UN Inspectors in October of 1998? They didn't vanish into thin air and Saddam certainly didn't destroy them out of the kindness of his heart.

  • Let History Do the Talking, Don't Change the American Precedent

    Who would try Franklin Roosevelt for war crimes? It's likely that not many people would but most Japanese Americans spent the length of World War II in internment camps, under duress and poor conditions. While it is likely that George W. Bush gave the go ahead for torture at Guantanamo Bay, at this point in time, it does not seem sensible to try President Bush for any crimes he may have committed. Doing so would also be an indication that other US presidents should be indicted by the International Criminal Court. In fact, President Obama would have to be tried for disregarding the sovereignty of Pakistan when Seal Team Six troops stormed Osama Bin Laden's compound. This seems like a silly prospect but by all means, it is against international law, as are drones used in Pakistan. What I'm saying is, to try the international war crimes of President Bush would mean indicting any American president who broke international law.

  • No, history should try him.

    There is so very much we do not really know about the reasons behind the US wars during the Bush Administration. All conspiracy theories aside, there were a lot of people who made a lot of money during that time and, if anything, Bush was their pawn. We have to look at the much wider picture and that is something that will be done by historians best.
