Unreal. Team Obama may allow US soldiers to be tried in the Hague for war crimes. The Wall Street Journal reported, via Jihad Watch:
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressed great regret in August that the U.S. is not a signatory to the International Criminal Court (ICC). This has fueled speculation that the Obama administration may reverse another Bush policy and sign up for what could lead to the trial of Americans for war crimes in The Hague.
The ICCs chief prosecutor, though, has no intention of waiting for Washington to submit to the courts authority. Luis Moreno Ocampo says he already has jurisdictionat least with respect to Afghanistan.
Because Kabul in 2003 ratified the Rome Statutethe ICCs founding treatyall soldiers on Afghan territory, even those from nontreaty countries, fall under the ICCs oversight, Mr. Ocampo told me. And the chief prosecutor says he is already conducting a preliminary examination into whether NATO troops, including American soldiers, fighting the Taliban may have to be put in the dock.
We have to check if crimes against humanity, war crimes or genocide have been committed in Afghanistan, Mr. Ocampo told me. There are serious allegations against the Taliban and al Qaeda and serious allegations about warlords, even against some who are connected with members of the government. Taking up his inquiry of Allied soldiers, he added, there are different reports about problems with bombings and there are also allegations about torture.
It was clear who the targets of these particular inquiries are but the chief prosecutor shied away from spelling it out.
Asked repeatedly whether the examination of bombings and torture allegations refers to NATO and U.S. soldiers, Mr. Ocampo finally stated that we are investigating whoever commits war crimes, including the group you mentioned.
UnAmerican, anti-American bastards.
They’ve been building up to this for a long time.
Im sensing rebellion, just sayin
Obamao’s organization is determined to bring leftist justice to America.
THIS could lead to some unrest here.
This’ll do wonders for those recruitment numbers.
Along with the stuff that’s yet to come out about the Ft. Hood Jihad.
Par for the course...before long we’ll be applying for our driver’s license at the UN building in NYC via the chip implant in our arm.
Grounds for impeachment.
No American general would ever hand over our boys to the UN. It’s the Teleprompter in Chief who will push this unfortunately..
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
The Messiah wants to see if he can get his numbers down to 13% Yes vs. 87% No. Then, he can say it’s all racist.
I guess I have lost the ability to be shocked by these people, who are attempting to gut this nation and start over, so we can become the socialist paradise they think we should be.
MaObama and his Fascist friends want unrest.. They want America to fail.. He’s really is Evil.
Are we at the tipping point? I have had it!
Is the WH administration not paying any attention at all to how people feel about granting terrorists civilian trials? I know some so-called Americans can’t wait to see our soldiers at the Hague, but I doubt most Americans wouldn’t be angry.
If this happens, if US soldiers can be tried by the very people we’re fighting in international court, then there will be a Revolution in the US.
Common enlisted people will then get to choose between court martial for disobeying orders or being dragged to world court for following the orders.
IT GOES FROM RIOTS TO REVOLUTION WHEN THEY LOSE CONTROL OF THE MILITARY!
In fact, should he even attempt an investigation he will become a marked man to be dealt with by a future pro-American administration ~ maybe hunted down like the rabid dog he sounds to be.
I would certainly vote early and often for any candidate who pledged to eliminate these people from public affairs.
I wonder what the this administration would do if our soldiers said enough is enough.. you’re not our Comander-In-Chief..
I only wish I could comletely agree; but they’re all appointees...
I’m about to start discouraging my grandson’s plans for the future.
I hate that bastard
I wish you were right, but some troops think otherwise. One was on Rush the other day saying nearly the entire upper echelon are totally sold out to PC mentality. If the military rejects this convincingly, it’ll have to come from the junior officers.
“”Because Kabul in 2003 ratified the Rome Statutethe ICCs founding treatyall soldiers on Afghan territory, even those from nontreaty countries, fall under the ICCs oversight, Mr. Ocampo told me. And the chief prosecutor says he is already conducting a preliminary examination into whether NATO troops, including American soldiers, fighting the Taliban may have to be put in the dock.””
It is clear our military now serves the undeserving. May God watch over them.
Great balls of pickled owl manure! How many more logs can Obamie throw on the fire before the lid blows off this pressure cooker he has created?
I have a question for the admin: why is it that everytime I post something in breaking, it goes away in the next 2 minutes???
January 20, 2013 can’t come quickly enough. This national nightmare still has over 3 years to go on.
I agree. Unfortunately for liberals who want to see us become part of the United States of the World, this is probably treasonous behavoir and is certainly unconstitutional.
Also, the American populace wouldn't stand for it. If he tries this bullsh-t, Obama is toast.
I still can’t believe how he is getting away with all of this.. Not only behind closed doors, but in broad daylight. We are afraid of the SOB.. We have to choose our words carefully.. It’s come to that point.. I can’t FN believe it!
The one thing The LOVE Itself needs more of in this world is more LOVE.
And that only comes when people are FREE!
UNREAL. Obama May Allow US Soldiers to be Tried in the Hague
How do you convert a strong voluntary defense force into your own
personal cadre of politically-correct supplicants?
Present conditions that will make any patriotic American THINK TWICE
(or more) before voluntarily entering the US Military.
Obama has learned from the Clinton era.
Obama is now very smartly doing all within his power to drive off
any pro-American recruits. And discouraging re-enlistment by the
sane and patriotic.
I know that’s a cynical analysis. But when you make it clear you’re
ready to turn members of the US Military over to an un-American
judicial system, especially one that won’t recognize the UCMJ...
what sane person would sign up for the possibility of that sort of abuse?
What! Violation of his oath!
Your epitaph for a free America is, I believe, premature. If you do not sense a stirring of the requisite strength, it may be that your sensors are not pointed in the right direction.
Yes they sure have. And had algore managed to steal election 2000 it would already be a done deal. If and when they sign onto this international court, I expect they will have to re-institute the draft.
count me in
Weasely Clark and those he promoted.
One of them logs will eventually pop.
If you say ACORN, they say what? If you say Anita Dunn, they say who? If you say Fort Hood, they say where?
If you bring up Unemployment, the Deficit, Afghanistan, they say it's all Bushs fault.
I'm not talking Leftist nutcases, I'm talking Joe Sixpack.
I'm not so sure about that, but anyway the generals won't have must to say about it if it does happen. Our military is well trained and subjects itself to civilian rule. The structure just isn't there for any other outcome. What we have is a real problem with our civilian rule. We as a nation have to change it and I hope we start soon, it this crap keeps up it may be before 2010.
Is there any such thing as a RECALL for POTUS?
Probably try to bring in UN Troops... that is if they care to try to protect his sorry Communist rear any longer.
Having a political conversation with friends let alone strangers is futile.. We really do have a society of hypnotized hedonists.. Thank God my family has a clue.
Im sensing rebellion, just sayin
They sure are pushing the envelope.
