Presidential hopeful Delaware Sen. Joe Biden stated unequivocally that he will move to impeach President Bush if he bombs Iran without first gaining congressional approval.
Biden spoke in front of a crowd of approximately 100 at a candidate forum held Thursday at Seacoast Media Group. The forum focused on the Iraq war and foreign policy. When an audience member expressed fear of a war with Iran, Biden said he does not typically engage in threats, but had no qualms about issuing a direct warning to the Oval Office.
“The president has no authority to unilaterally attack Iran, and if he does, as Foreign Relations Committee chairman, I will move to impeach,” said Biden, whose words were followed by a raucous applause from the local audience.

I say impeach him and Cheney, and the rest of the Bush Administration that took part in the impeachable offenses.

There's a bill being passed around right now that was offered up by Kucinich, I believe. I haven't heard much of it in a while. I'd doubt that it's still making it's rounds, though. It wouldn't really matter because the two party system is a fallacy.

When local resident Joel Carp asked Biden why not impeach now, given what has already been done, Biden said it was a valid point, but might not be constitutionally valid and potentially counterproductive. A case for impeachment must have clear evidence, Biden said, and blame should be directed at the right parties.
If you’re going to impeach George Bush, you better impeach (Vice President Dick) Cheney first,” said Biden, again drawing applause.

It was Iraq that hung Saddam not the US. Of course if you have some proof that it was US troops or personnel that brought him to the gallows, hung the noose around his head and pulled the lever I would love to see it. Besides I don't think the Iraqi Shia would be very happy to learn that they didn't hang Saddam but that the US did.
