    Indeed. Remember the drama around the issue of SA leaving ICC (and other African countries suggesting a unfair bias / no consistency wrt enforcement)

    Well what do you expect, the ICC follows the flavor of the day, Russia failed in Afganistan after just about destroying everything In there path, so the USA tried .....there is basically no ligitamate government there so in essence it is a free for all ..... The whole world including NATO should pull out of the Middle East and let them sort them selves out. When all is said and done there will be buggerall left .

    Yeah I don't understand this constant intervention by the USA and their alliance partners.

    They've achieved NOTHING in Africa since the formation of the UN, they've destroyed parts of the Middle and Far east, and Eastern Europe is in chaos.

    You don't understand, Jelo. The US has to promote "democracy", especially in countries where US companies have extensive oil interests.

    In the cold war days they were countering communist expansionism. That was actually more acceptable, except the CIA had a habit of picking the most venal and ruthless dictators to support.

    I don't think that Eastern Europe is too bad, but they certainly have not helped in places like Libya.

    Are you aware that the USA originally voted against the Rome Statute. Bill Clinton, Hillary's hubby signed in 2000. The current ANC South African regime also does not recognize the ICC. Now why would you call a regime that does not recognize the ICC as hypocrites?

    The US is not a signatory to the Rome Statute. therefore the ICC does not apply to them.

    At least the US does not push their vets in front of the proverbial bus for following orders originating with politicians.

    The United States is not a State Party to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (Rome Statute), which founded the International Criminal Court (ICC) in 2002 as a permanent international criminal court to "bring to justice the perpetrators of the worst crimes known to humankind – war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide", when national courts are unable or unwilling to do so.

    As of November 2016, 124 states are members of the Court. Other states that have not become parties to the Rome Statute include India, Indonesia, and China. On May 6, 2002, the United States, in a position shared with Israel and Sudan, having previously signed the Rome Statute formally withdrew its signature and indicated that it did not intend to ratify the agreement.

    United States policy concerning the ICC has varied widely. The Clinton Administration signed the Rome Statute in 2000, but did not submit it for Senate ratification. The George W. Bush Administration, the U.S. administration at the time of the ICC's founding, stated that it would not join the ICC. The Obama Administration subsequently re-established a working relationship with the Court as an observer.
