An Open Letter to My Fellow Americans

My Dear Fellow Americans:
My letter refers to your constitutional obligation to uphold the Constitution, to see that the laws are fully and faithfully executed, and to carry out due process of law. You also have an obligatiobn to provide a check and balance on the Executive Branch.

I know you respect the Constituition of the United States and do not approve of illegality on the part of the Bush administration.

Nazi war criminals were hanged at the Nuremberg Trials for committing war crimes. Does the American system of justice allow for the hanging of American war criminals? It would seem to me that if they did the crime, they should do the time.

The same thing can be said about President Bush. As Commander-In-Chief, George W. Bush ordered the invasion of a country that posed no threat to the United States. In so doing, he became guilty of launching a war of aggression, which is a war crime. Subsequent to that, over a million innocent Iraqi civilians have been killed by U.S. forces.

Impeachment will NOT do the trick. Impeachment does not address the issue of mass-murder.
In his 2005 speech accepting the Nobel prize, Harold Pinter asked, "How many people do you have to kill before you are a mass-murderer? " His answer: "One hundred thousand? More than enough, I would have thought."

See link:
Nobel Laureatte John Pilger was referring to the Johns Hopkins study that revealed the number of "excess deaths" in Iraq snce the 2003 invasion. In October of 2004, a "mean" statistical average of 100,000 was published by that study. In 2006, that figure was updated to 655,000. In 2007, that figure was updated to 999,9999 (one million). In other words, today John Pilger would say that over a million Iraqis should be more than enough for George W. Bush to qualify as a mass-murderer. And still, George W. Bush has not been prosecuted, he has not been impeached, and he is still in power! If he were impeached, he would still not be held accountable for the war crime of killing over a million Iraqis.

What is it going to take to address the issue of President George W. Bush being a mass-murderer?

This President has defied the laws, defied the Constitution, defied Congress, been in Contempt of Congress --and still he is president! How is this possible?

As a citizen of the United States of America, you are part of that government that we still call "The United States of America." I would think that you would recognize that in a state run by a gang of thugs, your only chance for your own survival is to take refuge in the law. If not, you shall surely be overcome by more powerful men, and perish.

If you have not already done so, please inititate every possible legal proceeding against the criminals that have flourished in the Bush administration, starting with George W. Bush. We need to empanel a Special Congressional Grand Jury, and issue subpoenas.

As an American and a firm believer in the Constitution and its system of checks and balances, I urge you to support a subpoena of George W. Bush to explain to the American people how it came to pass that the Executive Branch not only gave the green light to invading Iraq, but also misled the Congress and the people of the United States by saying that that Saddam Hussein was responsible for the 9/11 attacks and was in possession of weapons of mass destruction. Both of these claims made by the President were lies. In the words of Richard A. Clarke, former counterterrrism security chief in his book Against All Enemies, we invaded a country that posed abslutely no threat to the United States, Iraq.
Thanks to the actions of George W. Bush, the United States now has the blood of over a million Iraqi civilians on its hands. Someone must be held accountable for this war of aggression and the ongoing genocide against the Iraqi people. The muder of innocent Iraqi civilians must stop.
Impeachment will not be enough!

Thank you for your attention to this critical matter.
