As some of you may (or may not considering how this is being treated as a non-story) know, Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) read articles of impeachment against President Bush last night and it was broadcast on C-SPAN. Kucinich has done this before with VP Cheney. Yes, I know that this is technically grandstanding, yes i am well aware that the likelyhood of this having enough support to go anywhere is highly unlikely. I also am aware of the potential power of spreading information and response from the public, which is why I have posted below the articles and links for your edification and action.

there is more information here and here. first link contains links to a video as well as the original of the below list, and the second to two articles.

Before you read any further, please read and understand the following:

I did not post this for the purpose of debate or discussion. you are welcome to have your opinion and your stance, i am also welcome to respectfully ask that any thoughts of "convincing" me that you are more right in regards to this particular event be saved for later and not be asked or posted here. You may comment, but if it is a comment intended to start debate or discussion it will be frozen. Im sorry, but im just not dealing with that right now and i thought it fair to warn ahead of time :)

Article 1: Illegal secret domestic propaganda campaign for the purposes of fomenting war against Iraq.

Article 2: Through the use of proxies, intentional conflation of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks with the government of Iraq in order to promote a war of aggression against Iraq. Campaign under his direction and control, executed through the the Office of the Vice-President and agencies of the Vice-President.

Article 3: Lying to Congress and the American people about the state of Iraq's capabilities for production and utilisation of weapons of mass destruction.

Article 4: Knowingly making a false case to Congress and the American people about the level of threat to the United States posed by Iraq in order to justify a war of aggression against Iraq.

Article 5: Illegal spending of funds (US$2B) to build support for and initiate a war against Iraq, including the building of unauthorised military bases in Qatar.

Article 6: Invasion of Iraq in violation of the terms of HJR 114 (authorisation of utilisation of force against Al Qaeda); providing false statements to Congress about Al Qaeda in Iraq; key here seems to be the fact that Al Qaeda wasn't operating in Iraq, therefore the use of HJR 114 to justify an invasion of Iraq was illegal.

Article 7: Invading Iraq without a Congressional declaration of war.

Article 8: Illegal invasion of Iraq as an act of aggressive war in violation of US treaty (via the UN charter).

Article 9: Inadequate provisioning of troops - body armor, vehicle armor, all that. No meat here.

Article 10: Falsification of reports to Congress and the American people about troop deaths and injuries for political purposes - in short, more illegal domestic propaganda. Tillman, Lynch highlighted.

There are 25 more under here )

feel free to spread this, in fact, spread it as far and as wide as you can. also, i recommend contacting your elected representatives if you want to see this action go any further
