I wish them luck

President Bush is scheduled to visit Chile for the APEC summit next month. And so the locals have decided to greet him in the best way they possibly can: with a lawsuit demanding he and his cabinet be arrested and questioned regarding human rights violations in Iraq.

I don't fancy their chances, but I wish them luck. And I hope the Americans are taking note: while they may enjoy impunity within the US, if they travel internationally after retirement, they may face arrest and prosecution. If there is any justice, then Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Cheney, Rice and Bush himself will join Henry Kissinger in being unable to travel to large parts of the world for fear of facing an extradition warrant with their name on it...
