Wow...PoliZen found a doozer!

Blair...a war criminal? He'll probably plead he was just following orders...ours.

Seriously though people, remember the "Boy Who Cried Wolf"? Well it's war crimes now, and before too long nobody is going to take them seriously. Like the "Anti-ists", please don't overuse and bankrupt an important concept. Don't throw out war crimes unless a) you really, really mean it and b) you really, really understand what it means legally, and practically in the world of power politics.

Blair may be a shaky leader in terms of democracy and heeding the voice of the people, but he is no war criminal. Neither is our esteemed president, or anyone else in our leadership for that matter. Disagree, but show some respect. Remember the stakes? Homeland terrorism, WMD, Code Red, the imposition of martial law, and the possible end of freedom as we know it. Wrong moves may be made, but remember that the challenges are great. Shock and awe in the face of the crucible we face is shared by more of our leaders than you might imagine.

Just don't forget about the anthrax, and the attack against our elected representatives.
