Are these people insane?

What exactly did these left-wing nuts want to accomplish?

THE HAGUE (AFP) - A court in the Hague turned down a demand by a dozen plaintiffs who wanted to force the Dutch government to arrest US President George W. Bush when he visits the Netherlands Saturday, the judgement made public said.

The plaintiffs, mostly left-wing organisations and activists, accused Bush of "numerous grave violations of the Geneva Conventions". They also said the president is responsible for the deaths of civilians in Afghanistan and Iraq and Washington's refusal to recognize the International Criminal Court (ICC), the world's first permanent war crimes court.

These people don't have the least bit of a clue. Where were these people when the Taliban and Saddam were in power? Do they have any idea of the ramifications that an action like this could cause, not just in the United States, but in the entire world. They are so short-sighted and idiotic and self-absorbed that they border on manically insane. Thank God the Dutch government understands just how silly this would be.
