"Nothing can stop the criminal Bush from instituting wider war in the Middle East that could become a catastrophic world war except an unequivocal statement from Congress that he will be impeached."
From Bush Must Go
Only Impeachment Can Stop Him
January 15, 2007

The Unitary Executive...
The Urinary Executioner...
The Decider-Torturer and Commander-in-Chief...
The Long War President...
Mad King George wants More war.
More gore.
More blood.
Since Iraq is lost---with or without surge and augmentation---the Unitary Executive is planning to begin war with Iran.
Legacy is more important to the Decider than Legitimacy.
If George W. Bush believes that he is a Winston Churchill, then his dog Barney is General Eisenhower.
Starting war is easier than ending it.
A war with Iran now would produce more negative consequences than if Iran already had nuclear weapons.


" how does Congress stop him?
They can start by growing a spine and quit saying,
'He's the Commander-in-Chief. There is nothing we can do.'
There are lots of things they can and should do.
They need to rescind the Authorization to Use Military Force given to Bush after the attacks of September 11, 2001--along with every other power and/or authority that Congress may have granted him for his so-called War on Terror.
Bush has proved, repeatedly, that he cannot be trusted with any kind of power and that he is unfit to be our Commander in Chief (having done far more harm to our military than the 'enemy' could possibly do).
"If the Founding Fathers found it wise to give Congress the sole authority to declare war, it is hard to believe that Congress cannot declare the end to a war.
They should not hesitate to cut off funding for Mr. Bush's wars--except for what is needed to bring the troops home.
The American people know the difference between supporting the troops and sacrificing them in a lost cause.
"Congress should also dismantle the web of unconstitutional laws, signing statements, and legal mumbo-jumbo that have congealed together into the abomination called the 'unitary presidency'.
There is widespread agreement that many of these laws, enacted to expand the powers of the President, are unconstitutional and will eventually be struck down by the courts.
Until then, though, King George will continue to wield his new found powers to spy, torture, kidnap and murder around the globe. Congress must act to reinstate the U.S. Constitution as the supreme law of the land."

"This means a Constitutional confrontation between Congress and the Bush Administration is inevitable, and the sooner--the better.
The King has already dispatched warships to the Persian Gulf to threaten and provoke Iran, and according to retired Air Force Colonel Sam Gardiner, who taught strategy at the Air Force college, the Naval College and the National War College:
The decision has been made and military operations are under way in Iran.", 4/18/06

I think the plan's been picked: bomb the nuclear sites in Iran. It's a terrible idea, it's against US law and it's against international law, but I think they've decided to do it.
The Nation, 9/21/06

The stage is being set and Iran has been cast as the villain. The war drums are beating. Once again, the Bush Administration is leading us to the brink, and America is just one big lie or "incident" away from another senseless war.
Now is the time for the Democrats and Republicans in Congress to unite in rebellion against King George--before it is too late.
