Iceland's Ex-Prime Minister Indicted

Have you heard the news today? According to The Huffington Post, Geir Haarde, Iceland's former prime minister, has been indicted for his alleged role in the world's financial crisis, which brought Iceland's economy to a screeching halt a couple of years ago. According to news reports, this is the first world leader ever to be charged in this manner. Of course, Haarde is entitled to his day in court and reportedly vows to be vindicated in this alleged "political persecution."
Can you imagine what would happen if other nations followed suit and began prosecuting corrupt or inept politicians in this manner? I doubt that there would be enough jails to lock 'em all up! Don't you agree!?
