HAGUE COURT CAVES TO US THREATS: REJECTS AFGHAN WAR CRIMES CASE | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


HAGUE COURT CAVES TO US THREATS: REJECTS AFGHAN WAR CRIMES CASE

The ICC judge claimed a lack of evidence and a poor outlook for state cooperation — the latter reason essentially meaning the US and UK have already condemned the prospect of opening such an investigation.

The ICC had previously vowed to continue to operate "undeterred" by any US threat of punitive action against the ICC when it first considered examining allegations that US personnel committed war crimes, including instances of unlawful detention and torture of Afghans, as well as killing of civilians. The window of time ICC prosecutors considered for their investigation ran from May 2003, within the opening years of the US occupation, to 2017.

“The chamber hereby decides that an investigation into the situation in Afghanistan at this stage would not serve the interests of justice and accordingly rejects the request,” the judges said in their decision, as cited by Reuters. But the obvious first question is: whose interests are being served here?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US, it's military, the Pentagon, State Department, and Surveillance Department must know, that some of the worst excuses for torture were used here, coupled with the actual torture.

It appears that they are "circling the wagons" to attempt to salvage what is left of their "credibility", by not allowing these issues be investigated by the ICC; well, ladies and gentlemen in the Bowels of Power in DC, have I got a news flash for you; you lost it the minute the US government had attacked and began to occupy Afghanistan!

You, and your sycophantic warmongering media, have utterly lost the fight for being able to get anything right, including massive incidents of allege "friendly fire" at social gatherings, must have REALLY impressed your Afghani counterparts, who dare say nothing at the maltreatment of its prisoners of war.

And I have something I thought appropriate at this juncture: You have not converted a man because you have silenced him. – John Morley, 1st Viscount Morley of Blackburn

There are many who understand what is going on with these wars, but refuse to say anything them, because they understand the price which will most likely
have to be paid, and dearly.

And that is what has to stop; but that will only happen with a peaceful, logical, and fact-centric dialogue which we can, and should, share with each other.
