Should The United States Rejoin The International Criminal Court?
President Clinton strongly supported the International Criminal Court and signed on as a member. However, soon after entering office, President Bush quickly deleted the United States signature from the memberhsip roster and his House Speaker De Lay almost simultaneously introduced a Bill, quickly approved by the Republican Congress, to invade the Hague by armed force in the event an American citizen were ever arrested and tried in the Hague for war crimes. If the United States is ever again to return to being a law abiding nation, respectful of international and humanitarian law, dedicated to the dignity of human life, and dedicated to upholding the rule of law and its own Constitution, the nation should rejoin the International Criminal Court, and President Barack Obama should travel to the Hague within his first 100 day to affix our signature to make it official.
