Impeach Obama Now!

A previous article called impeaching him a national imperative. Do it now. Do it before it’s too late.
He’s already guilty of multiple high crimes of war, against humanity and genocide.
He plans much more ahead. He intends lawless aggression against Syria. He risks regional war. He’s menacing humanity.
He risks WW III. He cares only about advancing America’s imperium. Mass killing and destruction are small prices to pay. So is risking humanity’s annihilation.
Francis Boyle wants him impeached. He urged doing so when Congress returns on September 9.
Last December, Boyle spoke at the Puerto Rican Summit Conference on Human Rights. US militarism threatens WW III, he said.
A century after earlier imperial aggressions, “neoconservative Republican Bush Junior administration and the neoliberal Democratic Obama administration are now threatening” global war, he said.
Obama, other high administration officials, and their subordinates “are responsible for the commission of crimes against peace.”
The Nuremberg Charter, Judgment, and Principles, other international laws, and US Army Field Manual (FM) 27-10 define them.
In “international legal terms,” said Boyle, “the United States government” is guilty of “serial wars of aggression, crimes against peace, crimes against humanity, and war crimes that are legally akin to those perpetrated by the former Nazi regime in Germany.”
US citizens are constitutionally empowered to resist, he explained. They’re entitled to challenge their own government.
They’re obligated to do so. They should “prevent, impede, thwart, or terminate (its) ongoing criminal activities.”
“Today’s civil resisters are the sheriffs! The US government officials are the outlaws!”
