International Criminal Court to Begin Investigating US War Crimes

US Department of Defense

The International Criminal Court will begin investigating the United States for war crimes for the first time ever.

According to The Hill:

Appeals judges on the International Criminal Court (ICC) on Thursday approved a request to investigate alleged war crimes committed by U.S. military forces, CIA personnel, the Taliban and Afghan forces in Afghanistan.

The move overturns a lower court decision and allows prosecutor Fatou Bensouda to launch a probe into alleged war crimes by U.S. forces for the first time, according to The Associated Press. The U.S. government has long refused to cooperate with the court.

“The Appeals Chamber considers it appropriate to amend the appealed decision to the effect that the prosecutor is authorized to commence an investigation into alleged crimes committed on the territory of Afghanistan since May 1, 2003, as well as other alleged crimes that have a nexus to the armed conflict in Afghanistan,” presiding Judge Piotr Hofmanski said, ruling that the court’s chief prosecutor had found appropriate grounds to probe alleged war crimes in Afghanistan.

Judges who heard pretrial arguments reportedly rejected Bensouda’s request to open an investigation in April. The judges based their decision at the time on the belief that a lack of cooperation would inhibit the probe from concluding with convictions.

What remains unclear is if anyone who comes under investigation will cooperate with the court that holds no true jurisdiction.

Remember this kids. The millitary has but 2 functions. Killing people and breaking things. War itself is a crime. Once you get into one all bets are off. The only thing that counts is winning.

They wont investigate Kim Jung UN of North Korea, They won’t investigate ABBAS of the PLO. They wont investigate Maduro of Venezuela, They wont investigate Iran’s Ayatollah’s, They wouldn’t investigate Cuba’s Castro nor his brother Raoul Castro.
The International Criminal Court has by it’s inaction and action thrown International Justice into Disrepute.

This is nothing more than a scam. It is a way to extract funds from the USA. We need to ‘dry up’ our contributions to every Pol Pot regime around the world.

War is so clean and precise how could anything possibly be considered a crime. More time wasted on nothing-burgers. We’ve seen the outcomes of past tribunals.

Investigate a crime in a war??? That alone is a oxymoron. War is a crime and everything is self -preservation. It is killing the enemy or being killed by the enemy. That is why we give the military guns and bombs and the newest fire power. Of course there more atrocious ways to kill people, like beheading and stoning etc.
