Bush wird diesen unnützen und einseitigen Internationalen Straf Gerichts Hof abschaffen und Verbrechen an die Nationalen Gerichts Stellen verweisen.

Damit kommt automatisch Milosovic frei!

Bush has opposed the International Criminal Court from the beginning, withdrawing the signature of the United States from the Rome Statute that established the court and pressuring individual states to sign bilateral immunity agreements limiting the jurisdiction of the ICC. (In the Balkans, Albania, Bosnia, Macedonia, and Romania have signed on, while Croatia and Serbia are holding out.) He raised his opposition to the ICC twice in his debates with Kerry, both times unprompted. His administration’s opposition to international jurisdiction for violations of international humanitarian law has done much to undermine the force of demands for cooperation with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague.

Kerry is at least nominally a supporter of the ICC, although he too advocates revision of the Rome Statute.

As the election neared, some interest in the Balkans was sparked by a 25 October column in The Washington Times, in which Jeffrey Kuhner speculated that the Bush administration may be seeking an end to prosecutions at the ICTY and the transfer of war crimes cases to domestic courts. Several media in the region interpreted the article as a sign of a major change in U.S. policy, though the State Department moved quickly to deny such speculation.


Laut John Bolton, Minister für Waffenkontrolle in der Bush-Regierung, habe Carla Del Ponte ihre Aufgabe, in einem unparteiischen Verfahren die Schuldigen der Balkan-Kriege aufzuspüren und zu verurteilen, nicht wahr genommen und stattdessen versucht, die Geschichte der Balkan-Kriege umzuschreiben.

Ein Artikel in der Washington Times!

Den Haag ist wie ein Frankenstein Monster!

In keinem Rechts Staat gibt es sowas, das Leute so lange im Gefängnis sitzen, ohne Urteil und Anklage.

Balkan justice joust

By Jeffrey T. Kuhner

The Bush administration is now demanding that the chief prosecutor for the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, Carla Del Ponte, bring her prosecutions to an end.
Washington is insisting that war crimes cases relating to the Balkan wars of the 1990s be tried either in domestic courts or be given an amnesty. This shift not only marks a dramatic change in U.S. policy toward the ICTY, but more importantly, it is a fatal blow to the power and credibility of Mrs. Del Ponte.

In a recent interview, Undersecretary of State for Arms Control John Bolton told me Washington is deeply concerned that the ICTY, rather than fostering ethnic reconciliation, has emerged as a threat to regional stability. "There is a very real risk that the ICTY prosecutions will not resolve the situation in the Balkans," Mr. Bolton said, "but will create new animosities that lead to tensions in the future."
He emphasized the Bush administration is demanding war crimes cases at The Hague be sent back to national domestic courts. Mr. Bolton and other senior State Department officials are finally realizing what Mrs. Del Ponte and her fellow left-wing globalists have refused to acknowledge: The ICTY has degenerated into a politicized tribunal that has failed to live up to its original mandate.
The irony is that the Clinton administration was largely responsible for creating the ICTY. Washington, however, now realizes that it has unleashed a Frankenstein monster.
