Sic Semper Tyrannis

President George W. Bush, 43rd President of the United Sates, is not fit for the office that he holds and should be removed from it as soon as the constitution allows.

It is almost inconceivable to believe that after the attacks of September 11th we would now be debating what level of torture may be inflicted by US Federal agents- and whether near-drowning even counts. Illegal wire taps- spying on an industrial scale against American citizens, in clear contravention of the law have continued unabated. Today we see Mr. Bush defending- defending God save us- Illegal CIA prisons that detain uncharged prisoners for years. The Administration has been abusing the sovereignty of allies by flying illegal rendition flights of these same prisoners. In establishing an extra-territorial Cuban Gulag where prisoners are slowly driven mad Mr. Bush shows utter contempt for the rights of man and the very principles of liberty that form the foundation of the US constitution- the same constitution that he swore to protect at his inauguration.

And what of Tony Blair?

In the words of Renton from Irvine Walsh's novel Trainspotting:

Doesn't it make you proud to be Blair?" - "It's SH*TE being Blair! He is the lowest of the low, the scum of the f***ing earth, the most wretched, servile, miserable, pathetic trash that was ever sh*t into civilization. Some people hate the Americans, I don't. They're just w***ers. We, on the other hand, are colonized by w***ers. We can't even pick a decent culture to be colonized by. We are ruled by effete arseholes. It's a sh*te state of affairs to be in, Tommy! And all the fresh air in the world won't make any f***ing difference!"

Blair should go ASAP. Bush ditto. Then we can repair the appalling damage that they have inflicted on our most fundamental freedoms through their arrogant belief in the "war on Terror" - the most ill conceived and ill advised mistake in foreign policy in 60 years.

That would be: 2008.

The Constitution also allows for impeachment. Perhaps the members of Congress might consider this.
