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

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.
