Rusticus' Broadside

A patriotic blog that supports American Ideals.

"Are we in like Manner to be given up to the Disposal of the East India Company, who have now the Assurance, to step forth in Aid of the Minister, to execute his Plan, of enslaving America? Their Conduct in Asia for some Years past, has given simple Proof, how little they regard the Laws of Nations, the Rights, Liberties or Lives of Men. They have levied War, excited Rebellions, dethroned lawful Princes, and sacrificed Millions for the Sake of Gain. The Revenue of Mighty Kingdoms have centered in their Coffers. And these not being sufficient to glut their Avarice, they have, by the most unparalleled Barbarities, Extortions, and Monopolies, stripped the miserable Inhabitants of their Property, and reduce whole Provinces to Indigence and Ruin. Fifteen hundred Thousands, it is said, perished by Famine in one Year, not because the Earth denied its Fruits; but [because] this Company and their Servants engulfed all the Necessaries of Life, and set them so high at a Rate that the poor could not purchase them. Thus having drained the Sources of the immense Wealth…they now, it seems, cast their Eyes on America, as a new Theatre, whereon to exercise their Talents." -- Rusticus, in "The Alarm", a colonial American "Broadside", 1773.

More Thoughts on War Crimes Immunity

This will be interesting.

Nobody in the Bush Administration will be able to leave the United States for the rest of their lives, else they risk arrest and extradition to The Hague.

If they are innocent, they can present their evidence to the world, in a court that is neutral, and not under Bush's control, and be found innocent, and thus they have nothing to be afraid of...if they are innocent.

The mere fact that Bush is asking for immunity indicates to America and the world that they aren't innocent though. What Bush is doing, is establishing evidence that WILL end up being used against him and all involved.

All evidence shows that Bush himself set the tone for the troops who did this, and probably sent the orders down the line to commit the atrocities. Bush further reinforced this position on Friday by merely asking the United Nations for immunity. Gee, I guess Bush just told the troops it's okay to do this kinda thing.

Bush will end up bunking with GOP hero Sobodan Milosovic.

Count on China to Veto Bush's request for Americans [including himself] to be immune from War Crimes prosecution.

What kinda message is Bush trying to send to the world? That the fucking terrorists are fucking right about Americans? That Americans are above the law? That seems to be the only message the Bush Admin and it's supporters are sending to both America and the world.

Hmm... Fight terrorism by proving the fucking terrorists right, and by giving them fodder to use for recruitment... Intersting concept, but I have a question: how does it prevent terrorism, when it's only purpose seems to be to increase terrorism?

Five bucks says China uses it's Veto on Monday. The question right now is, will France Veto as well? France was the target of the most heinous accusations and lies prior to this war. I wonder if they will rename American Cheese to "Nazi Cheese"? France knows what Nazis are too.

Two notes for Republicans that may be reading this:

"Not everyone who says to me 'Lord, Lord' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophecied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in your name?' And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'"
-- Matt 7:21-23, NKJV


"Day of judgement, God is calling, on their knees the war pigs crawling. Begging mercies for their sins, Satan, laughing, spreads his wings. Oh lord, yeah!"
-- Black Sabbath, "War Pigs"
