    OK, we hear all the time about how americans are in danger at home and abroad from terrorist strikes, yes?

    Now, what actions could the next administration do to make sure americans are safer at home and abroad?

    Easy: prosecute those responsible for the illegal invasion(s) of the terrorist's home turf.

    I G-U-A-R-A-N-T-E-E you that if we prosecute Bushco for war crimes and lying to Congress for an excuse to invade, we will so placate not just those angry at us, but our allies who are utterly disillusioned with us at this point.

    In one simple stroke we could make the world totally safe for americans to be in again. (Well and maybe an Amendment to the Consitution saying that no one from Texas may ever hold the office of President again..)

    Here's what the Obama administration laundry list should look like:

    1. Start developing alternative energy on a massive scale, putting people to work and keeping the economy limping along. Mandate electric and hydrogen passenger cars. Begin building juicing stations for these cars nationwide..

    2. Prosecute Bushco in front of the entire world. Make the world safe for Americans again.

    3. Win back the world's respect and investor interests once foreigners see the US has regained its sanity and control of it's own house..Watch America grow back into a proud and thriving nation again.

    4.(a) Dodge texan bullets from grassy knolls

    4.(b) Bask in the glow of acheivement.

    No one is going to put Bush on trial. Get over it already. Obama will not do it, and it would be politically idiotic to even mention it. The world does not care if Bush has a trial or not.

    Your logic is also ridiculous. Prosecute Bush and foreign investors will come back? Please. Foreign investment has hardly anything to do with who the President is, it depends on the economy.

    Then in all of your "inclusive" rhetoric you comment that no one from Texas should ever be President again. I suppose you only want to "include" like-minded people in your campaign of lunacy?

    It seems to me that the obama worshiping population should be happy enough with the messiah that they would be content. But happy people don’t spend their time living in the past and trying to find a way to do as much damage to people who they don’t like but also no longer matter.

    I think obama followers are not as happy as they pretend they are or they wouldn’t spend their time trying to bash Palin, Bush and the rest.

    Now bashing Rush or Hannity is understandable, they both bad mouth their messiah, but Palin doesn’t talk about him neither does Bush. Actually Bush has been more than kind to him and his family and yet these obama worshiping people still have it hard for him.

    I think the followers should spend more time fawning over their messiah and less time worrying about people who are out of the picture and those who will be out of the picture within days.

    You're forgetting that prosecuting them would make the world safer for Americans. Seeing that we can keep our own aggressors in line and accountable will ease tensions worldwide and open arms to americans.

    Prosecuting them is actually a national-security must.

    That is just so silly, There have been no attacks because of the things Bush and Co has done. Once that pathetic excuse for a messiah takes charge we will be back in danger again more so than anytime before. When, not if we are attacked again obama worshiping droolers will find a way to blame Bush in their tiny little minds...

    Of the people, by the people, for the people...; that's the problem with democracy, we're all responsible for whatever our govt. does.

    It's not our place to even accuse Bush & Co, regardless of what he has done.

    Even if he has illegally acted, lied to Congress and tortured prisoners.

    Nothing eh?

    Bullocks. We would instantly be safer as a nation if they were prosecuted. We required it of Germany and now we must do the same in good faith.

    An atrocity is an atrocity.

    I'm just saying that it isn't our place to prosecute. Neither Germany nor Japan prosecuted their own leaders. Neither should we.

    Times are different my friend. For one thing, I think a case can be made that they are also guilty of High Treason...that is OUR area of jurisdiction. Plus, we must show the world that we are absolutely serious about making amends ourselves..and not just leaving it up to other nations to deal with.

    Our safety is at stake, and like I said, it would be virtually guaranteed if we did the right thing and fleeced the thugs that everyone is mad at.

    To harbor them as fugitives when other nations find them guilty would be the ULTIMATE embarassment and threat to our safety abroad.

    There is no other choice. The matter is simple. A handful of men go to jail so that an entire nation can breath easily and go abroad without worry.

    Easy compromise to make. Takes no thought at all..

    This is all based on the idea that those who are attempting terrorist attacks on the US, are in fact all Rational and can be appeased by political action that we could in fact take. This of course is wrong and foolish. In order to appease there desire to attack us, we would basically have to allow them to have there own purely fundamentalist Islamic states where Shia have no rights ( as most of these groups are Sunni and would just assume kill off all shia as well as Americans) Woman have no rights, and there is no freedom to decided your own leaders, aka Democracy. You can appease the moderates maybe, or those friendly to the west, but those who wish to kill us can not be bought with token court cases against Bush co, while ignore the major issues that effect the middle east and are the real true roots of the conflict.

    those Roots...Lack of non Religious education
    Unemployment
    National leaders who are don't listen to there own people and are not held to account to them, and are more tied to Western money then needs of the majority of there own people
    the Palestine conflict.
    Freedom of Religion

    those are true core ideas that need be addressed to stop terror...Courts for Bush would do zero, pure zero to stop the fighting.

    Well there's this:
    And this:
    And the war crimes at Gitmo.

    A trial starts with substantial allegations, followed by investigations and findings (discovery), then the prosecution starts and the facts of the case are heard and run by a judge or a panel or jury.

    I say they get as fair of a trial as they allowed prisoners of Gitmo to have.

    America is all about equality! ;)
