“On What Basis Does Amnesty International Want Us to Arrest Mr Bush?”

The Foreign Minister of Zambia has quite the sense of humor.

Zambia will not arrest former US president George W. Bush during his African tour for violating international torture laws, the foreign minister said Saturday.

Rights group Amnesty International had Thursday urged Ethiopia, Tanzania and Zambia to arrest Bush during the five-day tour to promote efforts to fight diseases like cancer, AIDS and malaria.

 “On what basis does Amnesty International want us to arrest Mr Bush? Tell them to hang, and also please ask them to create their own country and wait for Mr Bush to visit their country so that they can arrest him to suit their wish and not here in Zambia,” Foreign Minister Chishimba Kambwili told AFP.

    This is the stupidest thing I have ever read. In order to promote AIDS awareness, they want to arrest the guy pledged 15 Billion dollars and — according to Bono — is personally responsible for keeping 5 million AIDS-suffering people alive on that continent? Amnesty International has certainly gone downhill.

    Under which law will Bush be arrested? Why are the processes started this year? How many years now after Bush was overthrown?
