Last week, the United Nations moved to clip American wings by refusing to extend to United States troops immunity from prosecution by the International Criminal Court.

We had the audacity to ask for that? God damn.

Whatever, that's a forecharge to protect all those old white men who were once part of the army from being prosecuted. An attempted small legal loophole. Either way it's evil.

Ick. I hope they all get tried for war crimes. And I hope all the CEOs and major investors go with them.

i wasn't aware that we ever signed on to the ICC... or rather, i thought that when it was created, we only agreed to be a part if we got to choose which of our armed service members were immune to prosecution... you could look it up

No, we didn't agree to the ICC(and neither has Iraq, which the article points out), but I don't see why other countries couldn't charge us, or why Iraq couldn't join as this new government and then go hog wild on us.

Either way, it's the idea of it, and really, especially the idea of it since we hadn't accepted the court.
