Preface to the Survey Question:
An Explanation Of Why It Is Put Principally To Antiwar Writers And Investigative Journalists:
Mindbogglingly, these fine investigative journalists of Internet"s alternative media appear to limit their faultfinding to America's reelected and appointed politicians, the corporate media cartel that backs them and justifies America's wars on humanity, and much less frequently (if at all) seek to identify as causal, the amoral-by-nature automaton businessmen operating the usurious commercial, industrial, financial speculative-investment banking conspiracy that rules both American society and, increasingly, the world.
The puzzlement that prompted this article's questionnaire is a brutally simple one:
"How would all this exposed truth and detailed information have any meaning for America's millions of victims, if there is no intention to promote the prosecution of Americans who planned and are planning, who created and go on creating, who propagandized and propagandize today, who participated in and continue to participate in now, and especially those Americans who have reaped and are still reaping enormous financial reward from America's near seven decades of atrocity wars and covert homicide without any fear, without any concern, of possible punishment and incarceration for their American homicidal crimes?
Yours truly is dead sure that the antiwar writers the question in the title is hereby being seriously put to, are more than conversant with the clearly worded Nuremberg Principles, The General Treaty for Renunciation of War as an Instrument of National Policy, and the articles of the US Constitution that makes both of these an integral part of the law of the land.
Being the most sensitive and highly educated in the nation, America's progressive and revolutionary writers are also aware that it is happens as often as not that Common Law and the laws within the scriptures of all religions are often quoted in legal pleas.
Questionnaire for All Antiwar Writers and Investigative Journalists:
Given your wide investigations into the deadly criminal nature of US foreign policy and your awareness that candidate for the Republican nomination for President of the United States of America, US Representative from Texas, Ron Paul, MD, has been heard on prime time news for months warning that all US wars, invasions and bombings since end of World War Two have been illegal, unconstitutional and therefore crimes against the people of those nations and against America as well, when, if ever, do you anticipate a Nuremberg Principles trial of Americans for crimes against humanity and crimes against peace?

This writer, as the archival research peoples historian for the website: Prosecute US Crimes Against Humanity Now and coordinator of the Martin Luther King Jr. Condemned US Wars International Awareness Campaign [http://kingcondemneduswars.blogspot.com/], which is endorsed by every sincere peace organization in America (and a few abroad) and almost every prominent antiwar author-historian-journalist, has over the last six months, personally approached many of these endorsing colleagues and mentors asking if they would consider working the idea of urging a public call for the prosecution of US crimes against humanity into their writing.
With few exceptions, this polite request has provoked responses like "Everyone knows that I stand against the wars," or "I have always called for the arrest of President Bush (and or Obama) (as if my humbly-put request had not made it clear that calling for the prosecution of one or more 'fall guys' was not only misleading but would leave investors and facilitators and profiteers of the wars free to continue, as was the case in the intentionally incomplete Nuremberg prosecution of Nazi Germany"). [see footnote *]
Usually, when it is pointed out that Martin Luther King Jr. had no court that would overturn racist 'laws' and violence against minorities, but prosecuted them in the court of public opinion in the street and media; that Gandhi had no court to evict the British military, so prosecuted the British in the hearts and minds of the Indian people and gave the English no option but to leave; that in 1979, Iranians had no court to prosecute the murderous Shah, my correspondents usually discontinue the exchange, or in cases where I have argued too insistently, "Please remove me from your mailing list," and in one case, profanity from a revered fellow historian whose monthly reports I am a fan of and never miss reading.
