Sending a message

MusiCal thinks that the main value of the Chilean lawsuit against President Bush is not its remote chances of success, but that it sends a message. I agree. It sends a message to Bush and his cronies that they will be held accountable for their decisions. It sends a message that they will be hounded to the ends of the earth by those wanting justice. It sends a message that they can never relax, and never forget, because we will never forget, and never rest. And it sends a message that justice will prevail: we will get them in the end, just as we are finally getting Pinochet and sundry other torturers and murderers from South America's military despotisms.
