Apparently, it's not enough that the International Criminal Court not be used to convict Americans... or Russians... or Chinese. Now, they're apparently not supposed to convict anyone. Apprently, if the ICC actually succeed bringing war criminals to justice, it would set a bad precident.

If the Bush administration doesn't back down, they will essentially be granting a pardon to the perpetrators of one of the world's largest genocides... as well as doing their best to support genocides in Chechnya and Tibet. Go them.
