We should be loathe to encourage the ICC, lest they get too big for their britches

by wfgodbold

Why suggest something that’s merely stupid, when instead you can suggest something stupid in multiple ways all at the same time? Economy of stupidity, that’s the key; and Dianne Feinstein is the keymaster.

It’s so obvious! All we have to do is go in and arrest Qaddafi, and then this whole Libyan mess will be done with!

That’s one angle on the stupidity of Feinstein’s statement.

The more serious angle, though, is that if we recognize the ICC’s authority here, that’s one step closer to, say, having arrest warrants issued against our own president (should the tranzis feel the situation warrants it).

It’s bad enough that our military has been “volunteered by others” for participation in the ongoing kinetic military action in Northern Africa; but we’re rapidly approaching the pale, and if what SecState Clinton said regarding the War Powers act is true, the administration could find itself in an uncomfortable position.

The White House would forge ahead with military action in Libya even if Congress passed a resolution constraining the mission, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said during a classified briefing to House members Wednesday afternoon.

I’m pretty sure that’s not how it’s supposed to work.
