You want the US tried at the Hague? The ICC would be all over the Iran-Iraq war, and drag the US through the mud.
US supported saddam against Iranians.
Who said anything about an international court? Who said anything about the Hague? They permitted the Kuwaitis to bring charges against Saddam, they should permit the Iranians the same. The Iraqis can still handle it all themselves.
You're all missing the important issues.
Doesn't it matter at all how this is going to affect the Iranians? They're being shut out of this 'democratic' process. These are people that we want to have trust us, believe us, be allies of ours, and they're being ignored. Don't say this is only up to the Iraqis, 'cause all Bush would have to do is nod his head and the Iranians' charges would be heard also. All they deserve is the treatment given to Kuwait. No more, no less. And if we don't see that they get that, we will forever damage our credibility with the Iranian people. The U.S. wants to bring down the regime so we can have people running the country that we trust. After all, they have the nuke facilities there which are a threat to us and the rest of the (western) world and we can't get at all the material that's stored. We want the Iranian people to be on our 'side'. What good is supporting a change in regime if the new government doesn't like us or trust us either?
