International Criminal Court (ICC)

The International Criminal Court has issues arrest warrants for Joseph Kony and four of his leaders.

The International Criminal Court has issued arrests warrants for five leaders of the Lord's Resistance Army, a Uganda cult notorious for raping, maiming and killing children, a U.N. official said on Thursday.

The warrants, which follow sealed indictments, are the first issued by the new court in The Hague, the first permanent global tribunal set up to try individuals for genocide, war crimes and systematic human rights abuses.

US Government Fights The ICC

As an aside, it should be noted that the International Criminal Court is under attack from the United States of America. Aware of its own poor human rights record (not to mention illegal warfare waged under false pretenses), the U.S. government lies about the procedures of the International Criminal Court. On this, listen to former Nuremburg prosecutor Benjamin Ferencz: "The American public has been deceived" (RealPlayer).

In its efforts to escape being held accountable, the United States government bribes and bullies other countries into signing agreements exempting the U.S. from the court system.

We are aware of the fact that many Americans feel uncomfortable when these kind of issues are pointed out.

Fortunately, many more Americans have assured us that they, too, have concerns about their country's human rights record.
