shades of the ICC

A Spanish judges has ordered the arrest of three American GI's for their perfectly normal and prudent behavior during a military action. Roscoe has the details and some commentary.

I remember a few years ago, discussing the International Criminal Court with some leftist friends. I said it was blatantly obvious that the ICC would be used politically, that anti-American elements would make up ridiculous charges against American soldiers. They didn't believe me but this is the second instance since then of a foriegn court entertaining such blatantly political charges against Americans. If we had signed onto the ICC, these would be serious problems.

For all the disapointment I've had with George Bush, at least we can say that he was far, far better than Al Gore would have been. George Bush loves this country and he has acted to protect it.
