People of the U.S. and World Ask ICC to Prosecute U.S. War Crimes

People of the U.S. and World Ask ICC to Prosecute U.S. War Crimes

Petition Text

We encourage you to also prosecute war crimes by non-Africans including by U.S. war criminals.

Why is this important?

The ICC is degrading rather than enhancing the idea of international justice by giving a free pass to Western war makers. The United States has itself given a free pass to its war makers, kidnappers, torturers, and assassins. The U.S. president-elect and his advisors openly plan to violate laws against war, torture, and the targeting of civilians. The people of the United States and the world need the ICC to fulfill its mission and step in where domestic justice has failed.

How it will be delivered

To the ICC.


Reasons for signing

  • This is obvious as the nose on your face that he lied to conquer and occupy another country illegally and started us on this whole problem with the IS. Killed millions and displaced hundreds of millions over decades so far. They should be locked up for the rest of their lives Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Powell, and Tony Blair should all answer for this ad they hold most of the blame.
  • People should not just allow to carry on with their crimes against humanity. They should at least resign or be forced out of position. Fair warning: If they are executed or jailed it could become counterproductive because people always fight back stronger when their own ideas are opposed and may not listen to any form of reasoning.
  • Vote TULSI ! America cannot continue to boss the world ! America is falling in technology as China, Japan Russia and others are updating their infrastructures to compete in 21st century economic competition while America remains mired in 20th century and fossil fuel adiction! !
