This is really staggering when you think about it. It'd be damn funny if it weren't so tragic.
Reuters: George W. Bush Cancels Switzerland Trip as Pressure Mounts for His Arrest/2.5.11
I've said before that Bush essentially admitted to war crimes. Here's the thing, though: It doesn't matter one bit what I think or how hotly the question is debated back and forth within the United States; the fact remains that to a lot of other countries, he's not much better than a Third World despot. Once again, the implications are staggering -- we have a former president who many around the globe consider a war criminal. And that former president is so concerned about it that he feels there are places he shouldn't travel to.
America, fuck yeah.
