Americans to be tried for war crimes?

When the US refused to ratify the International Criminal Court in Hague, it was not alone. Its "coalition of the willing" in that venture were China, Israel, Libya, Qatar and Yemen. Always nice to be surrounded by folks who agree with us. Especially such illustrious company.

Having made its stand clear on such matters, it should come as no surprise for the US to be outraged by the attempt to book Tommy Franks for war crimes by a Belgian court. Needless to say, US's clout spreads mightily over the meek and laws have since been amended to prevent a loss of face for the Americans. Nonetheless, the case makes interesting reading.
