But CJ don't you understand America bad UN good and other such claptrap is what we are getting by the boatload and then revisions in the story when they get asked to prove their statements. Remember they have NO comment about the mass graves as a sign of reasons why this guy needed to be taken out of power along with his supporters.

They are not charging him as a person who committed Crimes against humanity. I mean the last timeI check buring children alive in a mass grave was not high on the acts that make you a pargon of virtue. The other mass graves and the use of chemicle weaposn agianst his people and these are documented but since it's americans pointing these facts out they somehow not worth as much.

As to moving the HQ I think it should be done and then talk to them about putting it back.

Reading the translation I posted a link to I confess that I'm mystified that Franks is a named defendant.

I mean, what precisely did he do?

Or am I missing something.

Except that is simply not true. Having read the complaint against General Franks I can find no reference to the use of so-called 'energy' weapons.
Care to provide the exact details and a link then.  Right now I?m taking the word of the Washington Times and backed it with citing the article. (They have yet to do a Guardian or NY Times).I?ve seen this report of energy weapons cited in several reports about the charges against Franks.
Sure they have.  The Washington Times was the paper that was flogging the "France gave Ba'ath officials French passports to escape" story, sourced exclusively from unnamed sources.  The State Department later confirmed that the story was completely untrue (and it's not like they'd pass up ann opportunity to make the French look bad).  

This is not a paper that's known for its reliability, which isn't surprising when one realizes who the owner is. (hint: he likes to marry several thousand couples at once)

CJ-- I can't find any reference to the energy weapon on google news either. Heck, "energy weapon" only gets one hit, and it refers to tazers. Are you sure the story wasn't retracted?

franks +"war crimes" +bus also only returns one result. Either way, this has gotten very poor press coverage...

EDIT: Thinking about it, I'm forced to wonder if this isn't Yet Another Mistranslation spawned by the war. A missile does, after all, use kinetic energy. Mistranslated, it could come up as 'energy weapon'. That's my speculation, anyway...
