    Wow, maybe the International Criminal Court will actually issue a conviction on something.

  2. Pageantmaster Ù† says:

    Good – well done.

  3. Bill C says:

    … And Roger Mugabe … and the Dictator of North Korea …and Assad of Syria, … and Putin for his treatment of the Chechnia, to name but a few others.

    Very selective, the World Court is!

  4. MichaelA says:

    #3, I agree – they should indict BOTH the Mugabe brothers – Roger and Robert!

    As much as I dislike Qaddafi, anytime the UN can come in and demand the arrest of a leader of a country, it makes me wonder: who is safe? and Who is next?

    There is already talk of an international treaty restricting guns in the hands of private citizens. If the US signs it, it becomes the law of the land. Will the Blue Helmets then start going door to door in America confiscating all guns and arresting those who resist?

    Beware giving too much power to one organization over individual states — it won’t lead to good in the end.

    That’s why so many of us in this country have said “Get U.S. out of the UN!”

  7. Cennydd13 says:

    And I do hope they bust Qaddafi.
