  •  UK and US vote (6+ / 0-)

    The UK and USA attempted to have the Palestinians sign a secret letter, outside the GA vote, promising not to use the international court against Israel. Forget Hague and Rice's rhetoric of human rights and concerns for civilians in Syria etc, they know the real score on war crimes and are quite shameless.

    •  damn it... (0+ / 0-)

      To have your government complicit in the end run around a valid war crimes trial is disheartening.

      There needs to be a full trial, no politics, facts laid bare, fully in the public eye. Hell, Pay-per-view it to pay the court costs. Let a court decide the future.

      I remember when the Bush administration wrote up plans to invade the Netherlands in case of war crimes trial...
