And if the Irish decided the Geneva convention didn't apply to them either...

Now, I kind of like this idea. Even though it's all symbolic, the Green Party in Ireland has decide to put out an arrest warrent for our president as he prepares to visit there. (I'm so proud of my people right now.) More countries should draw up arrest warrants for Bush. That might eventually send a message. But they would all have to ask themselves if they felt bound by the Geneva convention to offer him a lawyer, or clothes during his detention, or if, in the pursuit of information vital to their safety, they weren't bound by their national or international laws during interrogation sessions.
