    Whar would Bush and Cheney's possible punishment(s) be? This is simply a hypothetical thread because we all know they're not gonna get impeached.

    Discuss.

    Impeachment is not the only option.

    If there is sufficient cause to charge George W. Bush and/or members of his administration with war crimes and the appropriate parties file charges with the War Crimes Tribunal at the Hague, then trying them (in absentia if necessary and permissible ) for war crimes could happen.

    I don't care what your political views are, if the US allows international courts to try any of our politicians or military, we are finished. There are too many people in the world that hate the US and would use an international court for their advantage. Plus Iraq had a trial for the "war of agression" leader and they found him guilty and hung him.

    Just like that, huh? I really don't think we're so fragile that such a thing would ruin us. It wouldn't be ideal, but it wouldn't ruin us.

    Didn't the WWII war criminals get either life imprisonment (I don't know which prison) or death as punishment? So in the hypothetical situation that Bush and co. get convicted, that'll probably their sentence too (unless the rules have changed since).

    I'd like for it to be a harsh punishment. (Not death)
