An international tribunal to prosecute individuals for war crimes. Over 120 nations in the world have signed up, including almost all of Europe and the Americas, but with several non-signatories including USA, Russia, India and China.

The International Criminal Court (ICC), is, wrote Tony Cartalucci in 2019 neither "international nor a legitimate court, but is most certainly criminal. It is an institutionalized tool – one of many – used by Western corporate-financier interests to coerce and control nations across the developing world."[1]

A permanent international tribunal to prosecute individuals for genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and the crime of aggression (jurisdiction for the crime of aggression[2] beginning in 2017 at the earliest).[3][4]

NATO Impunity

The court echoes a wider culture of impunity for NATO members, so, for example, Radovan Karadžić was jailed for 40 years as a war criminal, but George W. Bush and Tony Blair have not even been charged for committing a war of aggression which is widely understood to have been illegal and which even a UK Deputy Prime Minister termed as auch.[5]
