Putin has an ICC warrant against him for war crimes, its belated but better late than never

I want to see Putin on ICC. Along with BIden, Oboma, Bush, Cheney, Kissinger and the entire EU cabal.

The ICC doesnt work like that, they get brought potential cases and there prosecutors assess the evidence and then make a decision, they dont decide on ideologically biased reasons like you suggesting

Countries that are not part of the ICC means you cannot charge people with ICC war crimes that were alleged to have occured within that country , that includes Iraq  which is not a signatory to the ICC and Afghanistan which needs to ratify its legal agreement. So you cant charge the likes of Bush or Blair with war crimes at the ICC for these conflicts

The fact you think Kissinger, Bush and others would be there only on "ideologically biased" reasons is gold.

Clinton, everyone involved in the School of the Americas or Talon Anvil, the Brits for Diego Garcia and Kenya, the French for Algeria etc etc.

There's a reason the US won't cooperate providing evidence. Euros probably will, they actually believe their own press.

Turkey also got a plane shot down by Syria early on in the civil war and did SFA. Pretty demonstrably hit in Syrian airspace though since even the US said it was AAA used.

More pertinently, the US has repeatedly shot down Syrian drones in Syria's airspace when they get too close to their occupation forces.

Anyone care to guess which other country hasn't ratified its membership? Hint: it starts with 'U' and ends with 'kraine'.

Well, they granted the ICC jurisdiction in 2014

https://www.icc-cpi.int/ukraine

"Ukraine is not a State Party to the Rome Statute, but it has twice exercised its prerogatives to accept the Court's jurisdiction over alleged crimes under the Rome Statute occurring on its territory, pursuant to article 12(3) of the Statute. The first declaration lodged by the Government of Ukraine accepted ICC jurisdiction with respect to alleged crimes committed on Ukrainian territory from 21 November 2013 to 22 February 2014. The second declaration extended this time period on an open-ended basis to encompass ongoing alleged crimes committed throughout the territory of Ukraine from 20 February 2014 onwards."

Is sort of funny regardless in a "Doesn't matter until it happens to me" kind of way.

Yes, Bruce isn't wrong about jurisdiction, he's wrong about ratification* being necessary. Of course Bruce and wrong is a bit of a tautology anyway...

Indeed, Ukraine is in the exact same position as Afghanistan, which has an active investigation (well, last time I checked) despite not having ratified either.

*And indeed indeed you don't actually require the location/ target country to be a member either. eg the ICC rather tepidly investigating the Brits for the Iraq invasion, since the UK is a member.

And little bit about the “discrepancies” in Hersch’s report about NS2.

The US never joined the ICC… so they would never extradite him anyway (unless there was some domestic benefit to getting rid of him)

But something else more interesting, Putins ICC warrant is about  the illegal deportation of Ukrainian children to Russia

Another prominent Russian milblogger had a bad day. He is predicting that the historical events of 1917 will be repeating in a near future 😁 I never wished so much, that a Russian warmonger would be correct with his predictions 😁

Yes, the specific crime he's being charged with matters very critically here, to note he's not being charged on the basis of the thousands of civilians tortured and killed by Russian forces in Ukraine. The ICC prosecutors clearly understand the legal distinction, even if others (some here in this forum, for example) don't understand this point.

Looks like Wagnerites are starting to find nazis in Russia as well. 🍿 Using spoiler tag, due to very NSFW language.

That's unnecessarily condescending, and too much of a generalization. "The Euros" and their press are much more heterogenous than you make them sound. A minor point, granted, but given that you tend to base much of what you write on knowledge, stuff like this looks less than convincing.
