Indictment for war crimes.... what they really fear--Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice. Benjamin Ferenccz, a former chief prosecutor at Nuremberg, helped write the provision in the UN Charter that made "an unprovoked war of aggression against a sovereign nation" a war crime. He believes that the invasion of Iraq was one such, and points out that most legal scholars, including those advising the first President Bush, agreed.

Deep in their hearts, that's what the Bushites fear--that somehow, somewhere, the worm will turn, they will no longer hold all the weapons, and they might actually be put on trial for their actions.

Historical parallel: in the last 2 years of the Third Reich (1944-45), almost all Hitler's generals knew that the war was lost, and were holding on only in order to destroy evidence. Most appallingly, that was a principle motive behind the Final Solution.
