Good point.

Funnily enough wasn't Colin Powell the guy who covered up my lai?

Don't worry, B. Caapi

the bar for approval of the Rome Statute was set remarkably low, with the court to be approved upon ratification of only 60 nations out of 189 in the United Nations. For a court that purports to have worldwide jurisdiction, even over citizens of countries that do not sign the treaty, this is a narrow base of approval. Further, such a process takes no account of geographic representation, population base, or strategic considerations, but simply relies upon a one-nation-one-vote approach. The International Criminal Court went into effect on July 1 with fewer than half the nations of the world ratifying it, representing considerably less than half the population of the world. Strategic powers including not only the United States, but China, India, Japan, and Russia were all absent, while the total ratification number was padded with small states that traditionally play little part in international affairs.

Now explain to me how this court claims to be just. That court is BS.

And as far as the bomb and Japan, I'm sure it was the hardest decition ever made by anyone. And if it wasn't us to be the first it would have been someone else. When it comes to nukes it is always beter to be the shooter that the target. Just like the Native Americans, if it wasn't us it would have been the Spaniards or someone else.

Be all and you'll be to end all

Good post. Well done.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers
