ST. LOUIS--On March 30, a national veterans organization called for the removal of President George W. Bush and Vice-President Richard Cheney for crimes the group charges were committed during the invasion and occupation of Iraq. In a letter sent to each member of the US House and Senate, Veterans For Peace (VFP) stated that ...This administrations war on Iraq, in addition to being increasingly unpopular among Americans, is an unmistakable violation of our Constitution and federal law which you have sworn to uphold. In our system, the remedy for such high crimes is clear: this administration must be impeached.
David Cline, a decorated Vietnam War combat veteran and VFP president, said in a prepared statement to the press, "We do not make this call lightly and as former members of the US armed forces, we take our responsibilities as citizens very seriously. For that reason we believe that when our government conducts a war of aggression on Iraq and commits a growing and appalling series of what must legally be considered war crimes and crimes against humanity in the execution of that war, it violates Article VI of the US Constitution, the War Crimes Act of 1996 (18 U.S.C. § 2441), and numerous international treaties which are legally binding on our nation."

These guys are nutz.
Hackworth in the lead? Damn I read his book and used to respect him.
Hackworth? Now I know why we don't see him on t.v. anymore as an expert.
How many in this group, and how many actually served , period, and how many actually served in Vietnam?
I am no good at research, never was, and am worse since I got a Mac. It will do great wonders, but not for me.
"What Will It Take to End the War in Iraq - A Strategic Discussion": Moderated by Felicia Eaves of Black Voices for Peace and Amy Quinn of the Institute for Policy Studies, presentations were made by Nancy Lessin of Military Families Speak Out, David Cline of Veterans for Peace, Fred Mason of the DC/MD AFL-CIO and co-convenor of US Labor Against the War, Maleena Lawrence of Organized Community of United People in Oakland, Terry O'Neill from the National Organization for Women, Rahul Mahajan of Third Coast Activist Resource Center and Tom Hayden, activist and author.
Looks like the usual suspects. Why wasn't John Kerry there?
Uh, unconstitutional? Congress gave the go ahead....
Besides, who does it leave if they were impeached? Condi, baby...
Clue for these losers..... GET A FRIGGIN LIFE !
Read my post #11
Uphold the US Constituion!
Too bad the "Move On" FReepers just don't understand
the real threat that the likes of Hanoi Kerry pose to our country.
I just don't understand their reasoning in saying
"drop it", "your wasting your time", "give it up" etc.
Some even howl when I remind them the job is NOT done.
Well I have news for them.
I've been posting threads
on the Viet Nam anti war "crowd"

So why do they think I'll stop now?
Don't be like the Silent Majority in the 60's and 70's
Demand Kerry be ousted from the US Senate!
There is no need to impeach Hanoi Kerry from the US Senate
He is there illegally!
For those who "forgot" what Hanoi Kerry
did in the past read on and learn the truth.
Hanoi Kerry was still a USNR officer while he:
gave false hearsay testimony to Congress
negotiated with the enemy
helped the US lose a war
abetted in the deaths of millions
created a hostile environment for all servicemen
Why is Kerry still in the US Senate?
This is in violation of
U.S. Constitution Amendment 14 Sec 3
And the FBI has proof of his treason.
Hanoi Kerry Timeline of a traitor
includes FBI files
Kerry and Julia traveled to Paris, France and met with Madame Nguyen Thi Binh, the Foreign Minister of the Provisional Revolutionary Government of Vietnam (PRG), the political wing of the Vietcong, and other Viet Cong and Communist Vietnamese representatives to the Paris peace talks, a trip he now calls a "fact-finding" mission.
(U.S. code 18 U.S.C. 953, declares it illegal for a U.S. citizen to go abroad and negotiate with a foreign power.)
a) A person charged with absence without leave or missing movement in time of war,
or with any offense punishable by death,
may be tried at any time without limitation.

Oh good grief! I don't believe ANY of those people has EVER served, except as card carryingg members of CPUSA. Sheesh. How can any objective news organization give these hard spittal commies the time of day?
"Veterans For Peace is a 5,000-member national organization founded in 1985, with 118 chapters across the country. "
I think they are the off-shoot of the VVAW, that Kerry and Jane Fonda founded.
