Martial Law?

House Democrats Bash Bush Over Abuse of Executive Power

After laying out a litany of charges against Bush, principally on the “illegal war for oil” in Iraq, Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), the driving force behind today’s hearing, said Congress must act to remove Bush from office.

“The war was totally unnecessary, unprovoked and unjustified,” Kucinich said in his opening statement. “The question for Congress is this: What responsibility do the president and his administration have for that unnecessary, unprovoked and unjustified war?”

Kucinich said if lawmakers reviewed the issue, they could only come to the conclusion that it was needed.

“I ask this committee to think, and then to act, in order to enable this Congress to right a very great wrong and to hold accountable those who have misled this Nation,” Kucinich said.

Couldn't agree more that we must hold this regime accountable, but.... Would W, like a cornered rat, lash out and pull something out of his back pocket and declare martial law? Of course he would.

So let's just make sure he can do no more harm for the next six months and then, after January 20, try him as the criminal he is.
