A thief is a thief, whether he steals a diamond or a cucumber.

The video of a group of women called the Code Pink protesters calling Donald Rumsfeld a war criminal is one of the most spectacular events that I have see in a while. At least there are some American people with the guts to call Donald Rumsfeld what he is to his face.

I wonder if the Bush officials have a moment of remorse for sending young men to death and spending billions of dollars for a useless war. I don’t see a difference between the Nazis and George Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and other Neo-Con instigators of one of the most deadliest wars of our time.

I would say bravo to these brave women for reminding Donald Rumsfeld that their actions have caused more suffering than good to the families of the 4,000 Americans dead in Iraq not to mention the Iraqi victims. A war criminal is the right name for them — a war criminal is a war criminal not matter how they kill, directly or indirectly. As the Indians of South Africa say, “A thief is a thief, whether he steals a diamond or a cucumber.”
