Vermont towns vote to arrest Bush and Cheney

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Voters in two Vermont towns on Tuesday approved a measure that would instruct police to arrest President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for "crimes against our Constitution," local media reported.

The nonbinding, symbolic measure, passed in Brattleboro and Marlboro in a state known for taking liberal positions on national issues, instructs town police to "extradite them to other authorities that may reasonably contend to prosecute them."

Vermont, home to maple syrup and picture-postcard views, is known for its liberal politics.

State lawmakers have passed nonbinding resolutions to end the war in Iraq and impeach Bush and Cheney, and several towns have also passed resolutions of impeachment. None of them have caught on in Washington.

Bush has never visited the state as president, though he has spent vacations at his family compound in nearby Maine.

Roughly 12,000 people live in Brattleboro, located on the Connecticut River in the state's southeastern corner. Nearby Marlboro has a population of roughly 1,000.





NOW THIS IS WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT! This would be history to the MAX! We elect the son of a bitches, why the hell dont we have the power to kick them out when they dont do what they are supposed to do?! Throw his ass in a maximum prison and have him enjoy america from the inside!

that's awesome. Should be crimes against humanity. I haven't heard of the civilians in iraq being happy of their presence.

That is because the media only reports what they want to.

Iraqi citizens are tired of AQ/terrorists/insurgents, too. It helps us that the d-bags have been blowing up their own people more than they have our troops.

Local tribal leaders get caches of illegal weapons in their court yard weekly, they call in our guys to pick them up and destroy them.


I'm not saying we should have gone in, but now that we're there, we can't just pull out and leave a huge vaccuum. Iran will roll in, or there will be a civil war between the Kurds, Sunni, and Shites.

FYI, I don't see an end in site, our planners clearly didn't understand the cultural difficulties of the region. They certainly knew how to blow stuff up though. The country has been held together by an iron fist for centuries. Now that we cleared that out for democracy... it will probably break apart, like the Soviet Union did after the communists fell.
