Screw "international law". None of you people who hate Bush have even
read the Geneva Conventions, so what good are they?
Oh, and by the way: there is a difference between international law, as
embodied in things like the conventions, and international circuses and
kangaroo courts, embodied in socialist dominated terrorist coddling
bodies like the UN General Assembly and the World Court.

Only because you don't know Kerry. The people who know him best as a
commander, other Swift Boat veterans of Vietnam, almost unanimously are
disgusted with him, and say he is unfit for command.

THe bioethics council can only reach so far as federal dollars are
spent. As has been shown recently, it's not far enough, and I'd frankly
appreciate the federal government not spending more taxpayer dollars.
The deficit is bad enough already.
