Pour chaque action il y a une réaction égale et opposée
Yes, for every action (France joining 130 other countries in signing the 1998 Rome Treaty on the International Criminal Court) there is an equal and opposite reaction (having the Ivorians take France to International Criminal Court over two planes that comprised their Air Force). Actually, there is probably more of a case related to their crowd control protocol.
President Clinton signed the same Treaty in the eleventh hour back in 2000. President Bush, wisely, erased the endorsement promptly upon entering office the same year. Thank your lucky stars that the anti-American proponents of the ICC can’t pass judicial rendering on our soldiers. The Docket would be deluged with myriad examples of frivolity and political grand standing.
But alas we are still a sovereign nation and the perverted yammering of “one world justice” is still pushed beyond our borders…Best of luck to the "Croissant Crew." If it’s possible, may their soldiers receive fair judgment.
Vive la .
