HUMAN first, then a proud IRANIAN

This blog represents the way I see some of the most significant events impacting the world and its citizens. This blog also represents how I react to the events as a member of humanity with a voice, a determined voice that insists to be heard. The voice of an Iranian who loves his country but his priority is humanity; humanity without border. I will say what I want to say, when I want to say it, and how I want to say it, but I will never lie. I will also listen; I promise.

The Bush gang should not get away with what they have done!

What kind of standard will be set if a criminal gang cause millions of deaths as well as clear violation of human rights in its most barbaric manner, and get away with it? Where would the world be going if these bastards are not punished? "We need to look forward as opposed to looking backwards," President Obama answered when asked whether he would investigate America's worst human rights abuses since World War II. That's it? That's all for accountability? Every second in history becomes a past moment after a second. So with this logic of President Obama, every criminal should only survive a second after his crime to become immune from prosecution. With this logic, German Nazis would have had immunity after their defeat in the war. Really! What kind of logic is this Mr. Obama?

If President Obama doesn't want to and/or doesn't have the courage to investigate war crimes committed by the wild dogs of Bush administration, there are other people with courage and/or resolve who are trying to do Mr. Obama's job for him. Spanish prosecutor Baltasar Garzón, the crusading prosecutor who went after General Augusto Pinochet in the '90s, will likely subpoena the Dirty Half Dozen within the next few weeks. "It would have been impossible to structure a legal framework that supported what happened [in Guantánamo]" without Gonzales and his pals," argues the criminal complaint filed in Madrid.

When the six miscreants ignore their court dates (as they surely will), Spain will issue international arrest warrants enforceable in the 25 countries that are party to European extradition treaties.

Yes, I am excited about this. Not for revenge but for the sake of justice. These war criminals must be held accountable for what they have done; otherwise, there will be not much hope for one day elimination of war crimes and human rights abuses by other leaders elsewhere in the world.
