Spot Bush a Plane Ticket?

Mayor of London Warns George W Bush-War Criminal: Bring Book Tour to Britain and Never See Texas Again –George W. Bush can’t fight for freedom and authorise torture By Boris Johnson 15 Nov 2010 It is not yet clear whether George W Bush is planning to cross the Atlantic to flog us his memoirs, but if I were his PR people I would urge caution. As book tours go, this one would be an absolute corker. It is not just that every European capital would be brought to a standstill, as book-signings turned into anti-war riots. The real trouble — from the Bush point of view — is that he might never see Texas again. One moment he might be holding forth to a great perspiring tent at Hay-on-Wye. The next moment, click, some embarrassed member of the Welsh constabulary could walk on stage, place some handcuffs on the former leader of the Free World, and take him away to be charged. Of course, we are told this scenario is unlikely… But that is what torture-authorising Augusto Pinochet thought. And unlike Pinochet, Mr Bush is making no bones about what he has done.


  1. Honestly, I consider this patently ridiculous. Only Iran, North Korea or one of our enemies would ever “arrest” a United States president. No ally of ours would dare touch Bush.

    Nor would I really want them to. Cheney … now that’s a different story. Think how easy the execution would be, just unplug the artificial heart. No need to waste money on a firing squad or electric chair or anything else.

  2. Since we executed Japanese leaders for waterboarding Americans, why would Bush be immune to prosecution by other nations for specifically approving exactly the same crimes?

    Rutherford, perhaps this is some of that “American Exceptionalism” that was being discussed on your blog. 😀

    Nevertheless, I agree that it probably won’t happen to Bush – especially if he is careful about where he travels. But he might want to be especially careful if he ever travels to France or Spain – which aren’t exactly enemies, or crazy states like NK or Iran.


    As for Cheney’s artificial heart:
