A Nuremberg Prosecutor: Charge the U.S. War Criminals

WASHINGTON, May 23 1999

Walter Rockler, a Washington-based lawyer and a prosecutor at the Nuremberg war crimes trial after WW II, said in a May 23 Chicago Tribune piece that, «those (like Bill Clinton) who live in glass houses should be careful about throwing stones.»

«We have engaged in a flagrant military aggression, ceaselessly attacking a small country, primarily to demonstrate that we run the world,» he said.

The rationale offered by Clinton to justify this attack on a sovereign country, «does not lessen the culpability of the authors of this aggression.»

In support of his judgment, this Washington lawyer cites a Nuremberg court order:

«To initiate a war of aggression, therefore, is not only an international crime, it is the supreme international crime, differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.»

At Nuremberg, the U.S. Supreme Court Justice, Robert Jackson, the head of the American prosecution staff, asserted that, «launching a war of aggression is a crime that no political or economic situation can justify.»

So if, what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander, off to the gallows with the CCCC killers - Clinton, Clark, Cohen and Chirac? Along the ABC's of hate and warmongering - Albright, Blair and Cook, not to mention the rest of the NATO war criminals?

Well, the Nuremberg prosecutor didn't quite go so far as to name all the NATO leaders who should be charged with war crimes, but he did say that, «in addition to shredding the U.N. Charter and perverting the purpose of NATO, Clinton has already violated at least two provisions of the United States Constitution» (Article I, Section 8 and Article VI.

In other words, the only way for Clinton to weasel out of the heap of legal trouble he is already in, is to keep committing more crimes. Against the Constitution and the American people. If we, the People, let him. With our silence and acquiescence.
