"Without justification or provocation"

"At least 34 unarmed Iraqi civilians, including women and children, were killed or injured without justification or provocation by these Blackwater security guards"

- National security prosecutor, Pat Rowan, referring to the five Blackwater mercenaries indicted for last year's massacre in Baghdad's Nisoor Square
Imagine that. Iraqis killed "without justification or provocation." When do you suppose the Justice Department will be indicting George W. Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell, and the rest of that criminal band for the murder of not 34, but more than one million Iraqis, all "without justification or provocation"?

And, as if to add insult to injury, George Bush chimed in today with his "observations" on the Israeli-Palestinian "peace process":

"I share the vision that the only way there's going to be peace is where those who assume that violence is necessary to achieve peace cannot be a part of the process. In other words, people have to renounce violence in order to have peace. It's contradictory to say, I am going to use violence to achieve my objectives, and oh, by the way, I'm for peace."
Remarkably enough, the transcript does not show howls of laughter from the reporter following this assertion.
