    A shame indeed, but give the ICC time to prove it's worth. This is only a bump in the road compared to the real problems it faces. No harm done, since no US soldier (or French or German or Italian) will ever be tried at the ICC IMO, for legal and especially political reasons.

    Also consider this: If the ICC was based in, say, Portland, Oregon, and featured US-style grand jury trials for all the accused, how comfortable would European countries be with it? Would they have agreed to it in that form? I'm not so sure, at least in some cases - and that's kind of the way it must feel from the US point of view.

    I know a lot of people who would say that this is exactly what Bush's administration has been doing themselves in the wake of 9/11

    NATO member countries and major allies of the US aren't affected.

    I don't really care about the banning of US military aid as I don't approve of that anyway, but the whole issue of not accepting the ICC is just plain fucked up.

    haha if anybody wants to stop giving money to somebody else they should do so. But making a fool out of yourself by giving a stupid reason like that really is priceless.
