Criminal risks when nations hang out with Yanks


According to an article in Common Dreams, "... the International Criminal Court is re-opening a 'preliminary' investigation into charges that British troops systemically perpetrated atrocities in Iraq."

The U.S. refused to join the International Criminal Court for fear some small fry country might try to hold us accountable. The ICC only has jurisdiction if national authorities fail to act on charges of internationally recognized crimes. I guess that would be too high a bar to safeguard our leaders.
