War Criminals Bush and Cheney Can No Longer Travel Outside the U.S.

by Eric Blair, ActivistPost

Everyone in the world seems to recognize the obvious crimes perpetrated by the Bush/Cheney regime. Their overwhelming negative status in the world has now confined them to personal prisons where they can no longer travel abroad for public events. It appears they’re only welcome in heavily-secured private dragon lairs for the rest of their waking years. But even those locations are shrinking for these torturers and mass murderers.

Cheney, scheduled to speak in Toronto with his daughter next month, had to cancel the speaking appearance due to “security concerns stemming from their experiences in Vancouver in September 2011,” according to a press release about the event.

The September event referred to in the press release was hardly a public event at all.  It cost $500 a ticket to attend and took place at the Vancouver Club which the Canadian Press called “one of Vancouver’s most exclusive clubs.” Still, the public caught wind of the event and staged a rambunctious protest calling for Cheney’s arrest. The angry crowd caused Cheney to be locked in the club for seven hours longer than he was scheduled.

In February of last year, George W. Bush had to cancel a speaking engagement in Switzerland because human rights groups put pressure on the Swiss government to arrest him over torture allegations if he enters the country.  Even though officials claimed Bush had diplomatic immunity because he was a former head of state, they recognized that torture is a legitimate crime under international law.  Organizers of the event felt the “atmosphere had become too threatening” and the gala went on without Bush.

I don’t know if you believe that headline or are just using it to disinform. Both these men have secret service protection and no one is going to arrest them. Cheney was making a point that the Canadians can’t control their loonies so he wouldn’t bother going there. No doubt both these men travel overseas but choose to do it without making it easy for the nut jobs to destroy property and burn cities.

Really? You sure about that? He got stuck in a building for 7 hours because the PEOPLE were demanding his arrest and protesting outside.

Sorry if you’re little vision of your neo-con heroes isn’t what you thought it was. Most people hate them.
