We are the Fascist Italy

Let's then hope Putin meets the same kind of end as Mussolini.

I meanÖ the US doesnít acknowledge the authority of the ICC either, so I donít think itís as big a deal as MaxSpin makes out.

The ICC is the best foundation to prevent "might is right" and "ethnic-genocide" groups from committing atrocities in their own countries and in other countries (through overt war or through subversive actions). It focuses on activity that should be condemned in all societies.

There are reasons the USA won't join the ICC, besides the Afghanistan stuff. It gets down to there being too many US politicians whose donors have economic interests in other countries where actions are taken that would be illegal if those actions were taken in the USA.

There's also an argument that the ICC breaks the USA Constitution.  So joining could potentially require an amendment or could be shotdown by a Supreme Court in the future. And good look making that happen nowadays...

If there was enough of a will it could be done, but well...see above for why there isn't that.

That ICC thing sounds like it exists to make people feel better while it doesn't actually do anything for the most part.

It has a lot bigger impact than it looks, because a number of lower-level people are also getting hit with it. Putin himself is effectively immune, but there's lots of functionaries that are *not*.

It also says "Hey, rich and influential Russian guys, wanna visit 2\3 of the world without being arrested? Yes? You better do something with this guy before you get similar charges."
