Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

I give up....

Before we invaded Iraq, we were told in no uncertain terms that Iraq was an evil country in breach of International Law. We were told that The Rule Of Law was the most sacrosanct thing in our Civilisation. We were told that International Law was a very serious thing and to break it was sufficient reason for war.

Remember Slobodan Milosevic? He broke International Law. He commited war crimes. War crimes were breaches of International Law. He was made to stand trial in the International Court of Justice. International Law was a very serious thing way back then.

Then the U.S. decided that it was above International Law (Oil can do that to an Oil Man.) In going to war against Iraq, the U.S. ignored International Law. It broke International Laws by the dozen. And since then the U.S. has been very quiet about International Law. There's now an official silence about International Law.

But the U.S. will have to reinstate International Law in order to try Saddam Hussein under International Law for his war crimes. And that's when International Law will turn around and bite the U.S. on the bum. Very hard indeed!

Australia? Thanks to our Prime Minister, John Howard, we're now war criminals too.

The International Court of Justice? Oh that's right, I remember, that's the place to which East Timor is trying to drag Australia kicking and screaming, to face charges of oil and gas theft...

We have our federal elections this Saturday. Vote carefully, citizens of Australia. I wonder if, come Saturday night, I'll be a proud Australian, or an ashamed one (and one very much more afraid of the "terrorist's vote" on the way we voted.)

Gerry, I couldn't agree with you more on this point of breaking or ignoring International Laws. It occured to me even before the U.S. invaded Iraq that Bush could and possibly should be held responsible for breaking these laws and might well be considered guilty of several war crimes. Personally, I'd like to help ship him in chains to Zurich and be made to stand trial along side Saddam.

We both know that it won't happen, but it just goes to back up your argument that the U.S. is far too controlling in the world today, to the point that International justice is almost forced to turn a blind eye to whatever the U.S. decides to do, no matter how illegal it may be. That's inconsistant, disgusting and just plain sad. Hitlers come in all type of packages.

Well, come the November elections, we'll see what the American people are made of. We'll know whether or not they can be trusted. We'll know whether or not they support U.S. global aggression. We'll know whether or not they are happy commit war crimes. The world will be watching, and I dare say it will take its cue from the outcome - I'm sure the "terrorists" will.
