Prosecute U.S. War Crimes

I've talked elsewhere about the huge backlog of unprosecuted U.S. war crimes.

It's time to prosecute U.S. war crimes.

How about starting right here in Chicago? How about in May, 2012, when many of the war criminals will gather in Chicago for the NATO/G8 meeting?

I can't think of a more fitting welcome mat to put out for them . . . .

A new post on the Wisconsin Network for Peace & Justice blog stresses the idea that even if U.S. troops are withdrawn as promised from Iraq at the end of 2011, our involvement in Iraq isn't over until we prosecute those responsible for U.S. war crimes. Perhaps that can provide guidance for how the 9th anniversary of the start of the Iraq war is recognized in March, 2012: let's mark it with a war crimes tribunal . . . .
