Sweden cooperates closely with Five Eyes. Apparently, their intelligence service is out of control as well. Sorry, no links, but you can google it yourself. Incidentally, that brings a few incidents of the past into a new light, e.g., the raid on the pirate bay servers as well as the charges against Assange.

Bush has been out of office for 5 years now. Obama owns this shit now. He may not be responsible for establishing the surveillance state (by some accounts that has been going on even before 9/11) but he's doing nothing to reign it in either.

And once you've impeached Obama you can send Bush and his goons to The Hague.

In case you haven't noticed: This is an article about SOLAR power, not COAL. Nobody in their right mind is proposing to keep using coal to get off nuclear. You don't have to chose between the two. Germany plans to get rid of both. And consistently bringing up the radiation danger of coal plants (which are based on a single study from the 70s and does not take current technology into account) in discussions about renewable energy is a straw man.

If you don't have time to do it right, where are you going to find the time to do it over?
