Justice?

I know what you and I want. We would like the criminals, in and associated with this administration, to be brought to justice and made to pay for what they have done. We want that at times so much we can taste it.

Having said that, do you really think a single one of them will be made to answer for their crimes, ever?

Probably not. There are just too many "insiders" and people beholden to the special interests like big pharma, big oil and big agriculture. Too much money out there protecting the criminals. Our only hope is that one of them will go out of the country and into the hands of the world court.

The murderers, liars and thieves will remain free. In the Hell they've created, they are heros and history will be rewritten to make them look good and just.

...and all their crimes will be repeated by a new generation of corrupt leaders.

When will our revoltion lead to revolution?

Sadly - I do not think so. In order to have that kind of justice, we would have to have a truly just society.

We do not. We live in the land of lies.

That is so much more cynical than I ever like to be, but I believe it to be the truth.

none of them will ever see a day of jail or even the inside of the courthouse

watch the new mantra in Jan 2009 from whomever gets elected
"it is time to move on"

on another note, the canonization of tim russert has entered day 6. the today show was so full of pathos it was enough to make you buy stock in Kimberly Clark

I was hoping I was the only one who believed justice would never be served, but I can see that I am not. The really scary part is what else are those criminals going to do in the time they have left?

Kimberly Clark? Isn't that the girl from "Different Strokes" that OD'd?

I think that other nations will come after some of the people in the administration. It's not only the laws of this nation that they broke, they broke international laws that have been in place for a long time to prevent situations like what this Bush administration did.
Bush is a murderer, plain and simple.
And to quote Georgie, himself, "I don’t think you should support the death penalty to seek revenge. I don’t think that’s right. I think the reason to support the death penalty is because it saves other people’s lives."
Fair enough, George. Fair enough. See you at the gallows upon your conviction.
Probably.

Sadly they will all walk off into the sunset. At most some low level person will take the fall and the rest will write books and go out on the speaking tour.

no. it is a sad state of affairs- but no. in the movie 'the shooter', one assassin says to another that you can't cut the head off of the snake- it's a conglomerate. it's true. we don't have a democracy- we have a corporate oligarchy.

Sadly, no they won't. The next administration will be so busy un-doing what was done in the 8 years prior that there simply won't be enough hours address it. And, anyway, would jailing them really be justice? Maybe in Baghdad outside the Green Zone in Sadr City, but anything else would be too lenient.

justice is a state of mind

Of course not, but the truly mind-boggling thing is that more and more evidence one could use to prosecute is coming out every day, yet no one in authority other than Kucinich and a few others is saying, "okay, that's it! These guys are world-class criminals, and they've got to pay!" Every time we get yet more evidence of war crimes etc., we all just say, "see, I was right!"

It's become a complete joke the world over.

They will never be tried or held accountable! Like Rove they will all be giving Presidential pardons or friggen Presidential medals. It is enough to piss off the Easter Bunny!
