Another Day of American Infamy: Clinton and His Associates Are Now Outlaws

WASHINGTON, May 23 - When NATO's war on Serbia started on Mar. 24, we immediately called it the New Day of Infamy. Here is the opening paragraph from TiM's Statement issued on Day 1, even before the first bombs fell on Yugoslavia:

"Mark this day - March 24, 1999! It may be remembered in history as a new Day of Infamy. Just as was December 7, 1941, the day the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. Except that this time, it is the NATO American-made missiles and pilots that are delivering hell to Serbia on behalf of the forces of Evil. By the order to launch air strikes against Serbia, NATO and President Clinton have entered uncharted territory in mankind's history."

To which we can now add:

Mark this day - May 23, 1999 - the 61st day of NATO's war on a sovereign country - Yugoslavia - which has done us no harm. May 23 may be remembered as another New Day of Infamy. For, on this Sunday, the U.S. Constitution and the American system of government and justice also became the trampled victims of a President who had sworn to protect them.

The War Powers Act of 1973, a Vietnam War-era legislation, requires the sitting President to get congressional approval for the "introduction into hostilities" of the U.S. armed forces for longer than a 60 days.

On Apr. 28, the House rejected Clinton's war on Yugoslavia by a tie 213-213 vote, and threw out the proposed declaration of war on Yugoslavia by an overwhelming 427-2 vote. On May 4, our sheepish and squeamish Senate voted not to vote. By a 78-22 vote, the Senators put aside indefinitely a resolution which would have allowed Clinton to use "all necessary force" in his undeclared war on Yugoslavia.

Finally, just this past week (May 19), the House Armed Services Committee voted to prevent Clinton from using any of next year's $289 billion defense budget for his war on Yugoslavia.

Today is Day 61 of Clinton's undeclared war on Yugoslavia hostilities. The President has not obtained congressional approval. From this day forward, this is not only an undeclared war; it is an ILLEGAL war, according to the U.S. laws and Constitution.

Members of the U.S. armed forces who continue to participate in Clinton's illegal war should understand that they are now executing UNLAWFUL orders. And that, therefore, they are Clinton's accessories, not only in his war crimes against Serb and other civilians, but also in his violations of our federal laws, of our Constitution, and of the will of the American people, as expressed by Congress.

Which means that the American soldiers participating from this day forward in this illegal war on Yugoslavia, and not just their Draftdodger-cum-Commander-in-Chief, one day may face prosecution. Under the U.S., not only international laws. If there is still such thing as justice and civilized behavior left in our country.

So mark this day, May 23, 1999. By repudiating Congress, and therefore, the will of the people, Bill Clinton has now also entered uncharted territory in the American history. By putting themselves above the law, the Presidents and his associates have now become outlaws.

Will we, the American people, allow ourselves to be ruled by outlaws? Let's drop Clinton, not bombs!

TiM Ed.: During the last 60 days, we have been blessed with many offers of help from the decent, God-fearing, patriotic Americans. Now we appeal to those among the TiM readers who are lawyers or legal scholars to help us draft the articles charging Bill Clinton with violations of the War Powers Act and the Constitution, and seeking a federal court order for an immediate cessation of hostilities in the Balkans. Thank you.
