We've already been over this.  Clearly, the case was *NOT* even 
minimally cogent, much less overwhelmingly cogent.  If it had been even 
minimally cogent, then many, many reasonable people would have been 
convinced that, instead, were and are highly critical.

Sounds like you're making the case for impeaching POTUS.  Anybody care 
to tally up how many laws have been broken or possibly broken by this 
sad little gangster and "his" crew?

Glad to hear you admit it. :-)

I guess that notion of "sovereignty" only works when it's applied to 
the U.S., hmm?

And what protects the security of free nations and the freedom of 
individuals...  from an aggressive, unilateral, belligerent, 
Imperialist, *criminal*, and uncooperative America?  WE are the biggest 
threat to peace in the world today.  By your / the pre-emption 
argument, those nations should gang up on us IMMEDIATELY to prevent 
future American aggression.

Bzzzt, sorry Gordon.  In order to avoid a dizzy cycle of military 
intervention and counterintervention, there have to be some formalisms. 
  Or at a minimum conventions.  We've thrown all those out the window.
