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.
