Now you may al recall that US refused to joing the ICC because it said it would be used politically against the US by its many enemies. What they didnt say was they intended to commit war crimes,and need the freedom to do so without being bound by any law.

but the Iraqi Higher Criminal court set up by Paul Bremer unlike the ICC has really turned out to be a politically charged kangaroo court. Yet where is this being charged in the media?

Weve watched the socalled leader of the'free world' once again run roughshod over the rule of law, with noone doing anything about it.
