Right or wrong heads of states are protected.
Saddam Hussein was not the President of Iraq, he was not an elected leader under a free democratic process.
Why do you think Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is spouting off about Israel, Mahmoud is the elected leader of Iran and he is protected by diplomatic Immunity.
First let me say: Noteworthy contribution! You bring up some valid points.
A question i have (not sure of answer) is wasn't Melosavich, who faced a tribunal, an elected official?
If you don't like your leadership run for office, get involved and change the world or shut up !
I agree, people should act. But, first they should be informed before they act, or their actions are actions which are uninformed, or a result of an opinion in which others have willingly or unwilling omitted certain facts.
In other words i agree people should get involved if they are to be viewed as having integrity, or otherwise be perceived as hypocrits by others who choose to judge them.
But, some people are still involved, but involved through information gathering, as they may feel they still don't know or have access to all the pertinent truths needed before they act in a more involved manner.
Make sense? Although i agree with your above quote, some people are still asking questions, and trying to understand.
