Is this a police action or a military action?

Glad to see that the U.S. State Department "welcomed the verdict". It's neither police or military - it's justice.

That's a good precedent since this was the first case of a Head of State being tried for War Crimes since Nuremburg.

And, of course, you can't welcome the verdict unless you agree with the process.

Oorah, Baby!

The GOP war on workers has killed again...

It’s time to stop the conservative's war on working people in America.

Since the birth of our nation, conservatives have always been wary of average working-class Americans having too much political or economic power. John Adams, the second President of the United States and a Federalist (precursor to today’s Republicans), was very wary of the working class, which he referred to as “the rabble.”
