Bush Administration accused of illegal behavior

“This House cannot avoid its constitutionally authorized responsibility to restrain the abuse of Executive power,” Kucinich said on the floor today. “The Administration has been preparing for an aggressive war against Iran. There is no solid, direct evidence that Iran has the intention of attacking the United States or its allies.”

Kucinich noted that since the US “is a signatory to the U.N. Charter, a constituent treaty among the nations of the world,” and Article II states that “all members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state,” then “even the threat of a war of aggression is illegal.”

“Article VI of the U.S. Constitution makes such treaties the Supreme Law of the Land,” Kucinich continued. “This Administration, has openly threatened aggression against Iran in violation of the U.S. Constitution and the U.N. Charter.”

    With a guy like Kucinich around, our country needs no enemies. Obviously this conception and behavior surrounding liberals and some who call themselves libertarians is getting a little obvious and for that matter, more pathetic. Those who would not even admit that George Bush at the very least was tested early in his 1st term, passed the test and has kept us safe during his administration. It is now July 1, 2009, Lets see what this guy does.
