They did: The international war tribunal in Den Haag. But the US won't be part of that, why?That answers that question.What is the U.S. objection?
The United States, which signed the statute to create the court but never ratified it, is opposed to the ICC in part because it feels the treaty does not go far enough to avoid the risk of politically motivated prosecutions. It wants immunity for countries that are not party to the ICC but still contribute troops to U.N. peacekeeping operations.
It's essentially a jurisdictional issue. Belgian laws shouldn't apply to another country, even if it's something as obviously wrong as genocide.The ICC will not supercede, but will complement national jurisdictions. National courts will continue to have priority in investigating and prosecuting crimes within their jurisdiction.
You can pass a law that requires all people to have read 12 books in order to become an adult. It may be well-intentioned. The world may be a better place if everyone did that. But it's still a bad law.we should create one instead of bringing down a law that tries to achieve something.
