Have you ever seen the Dutch ME before?? Those men are beasts. I think even their horses use steroids...
They might beat the crap out of the secret service agents.

syntaxer, I think the proper question you should be asking is, why can't George Bush be arrested as a political prisoner by the ICC since some people disagree with his politics and want to have him arrested.
The US opted out of the ICC, so as a result we are not bound by their laws.
If Bush should be arrested for this, then Chirac should be arrested when he comes to the US for obstruction of justice.

of course they would. It would be very disrespectful to this country. It would be like spitting in our face. Honestly, what American wouldn't be outraged, I think we should take a poll on this. Tell me if you are liberal or conservative or whatever else, and then tell me if you would be angry!
As a liberal libertarian registered as an independent voter, I would feel great if Bush was arrested by anybody, even the Dutch. The man is basically a free roaming premeditated mass murderer. By lying to the American public and the world concerning the threat of another nation and then sending troops off on a non-defensive attack, he squandered our military, resources, but most of all the lives of untold thousands of people who did not need to die or be maimed. There needs to be accountability and it won't happen.
Accountability for our official wrongdoings plus a clean sweep of those involved in these criminal actions needs to take place if the U.S. federal government is to have any credibility in seeing that truth and justice is carried out. New leaders with non-criminal intent need to govern the United States, not the current batch of now exposed liars.

Attempting to arrest a POTUS, no matter how criminal, could be construed as an act of war by an administration bent on self-destruction and the eradication of diplomacy.
Don't stop there. Attempting to arrest a POTUS could be construed as an act of war by any administration.
