Swiss Neutrality? George W. Bush Cancels Trip to Switzerland … Threat of Protests & Arrest on War Crimes
So much for Swiss neutrality and sanity.
Former President George W. Bush has canceled his trip to Switzerland where he was to give the keynote address at a Jewish group’s charity gala on February 12 in Geneva. As reported at The Hill, GWB canceled because of expected protests and the treat of possible arrest on war crimes allegations. So much for the rules of diplomatic immunity. It is simply amazing just how whacked out these European countries have become. As Weasel Zippers stated, because those Swiss folks are certainly known for their rational protests, like the bare naked ladies moonbats protesting global warming in their birthday suits.
President George W. Bush has canceled an event in the famously neutral country Switzerland because of expected protests to his presence there.
Bush was supposed to give the keynote address at a Jewish group’s charity gala on Feb. 12 in Geneva.
Leftist groups had planned to protest the visit, according to news agencies. But several human rights groups had also filed criminal complaints against Bush, demanding that he be taken into custody if he stepped on Swiss soil and investigated for allegations of ordering torture.
A right-wing member of the Swiss parliament also demanded last week Bush’s arrest on war crimes allegations if he came to the country, according to Reuters.
Honestly, it is too bad that Bush did not go through with the trip and speak at the event. How would not have liked to have seen Swiss authorities attempt to arrest a former US President? It would have almost have been worth the dare. I wonder how many Swizz lives have been saved over the years due to interrogation? What the heck happened to Switzerland?
