    I'm with you in sentiment, Mark, but you know that this country will carry the scars of the years of hubris and denial.

    And when I think about the  prudish Republicans who insisted that a lie about a blowjob was "high crimes and misdemeanors" but that GWB, Cheney, Wolfowitz, Rumsfield, Ashcroft, Gonzalez, Rice have not yet faced a firing squad for what everyone knows was war crimes -

    well, a day late and a dollar short is not going to save the reputation of this country.

    And every day we go without their execution is one more chapter in the history books of the future that will forever remind our children and grandchildren just how bad it all was allowed to go with the implicit (if not deluded) support of far too many Americans.

    And I don't want prison -

    You and I both know that if any other country in the world had done what this country has done in the last ten years, we (the US Government) would have bombed the place back to the stone age and had Hussein-style hangings for all the leaders who survived.

    The fact that none of that has happend in our own land is to our shame.

    George Orwell is banging on the lid of his coffin and screaming, "1984 was a cautionary tale, you dolts, not a motivational speech!"
