How to Make a Citizen’s Arrest of a War Criminal

The critical thinkers at Democratic Underground have come up with another gem: How to make a citizen’s arrest of a war criminal.

There’s a list of people deserving of being tried for war crimes, from President Bush to Dick Cheney to Condoleezza Rice to John Bolton to Henry Kissinger to Mary Matalin to Karl Rove — along with an 8-step procedure on how to bring them to justice.

One broad stroke is skipped: How to avoid being shot by said war criminal’s security people when you run up to them and try to handcuff them. The painful devil is in the details.

This sounds so familiar that it seems as if this sort of thing was tried only last week. Oh wait, it was tried only last week:

The environmental campaigner, George Monbiot, last night failed in his attempt to make a citizen’s arrest on the senior ex-Bush administration official John Bolton over “war crimes” committed by the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

The name “Monbiot” is so close to “moonbat” that it just can’t be an accident.

In any case, if you see any of the people on the DU list, take them into custody, and then… and then… take them to your local police station where they’ll be released and you’ll be thrown in jail for kidnapping.
