International Criminal Court
The International Criminal Court is a creation of the United Nations whose purpose is dubious. The court was created in 1998 with the adoption of the Rome Statute, and it came into force in 2002 when the statute was ratified by 60 countries.

- Americans must understand that the UN's International Criminal Court is not a tool to fight terrorists or murderous dictators. Rather it is a sledgehammer in the hands of the very people the rest of the world thinks are "the bad guys." This gang of brutes, in the guise of international diplomats, fully intends to use the ICC as an equalizer to bring down the moral, productive nations they jealously covet and despise.
In some places in the world, the court is allowed in some areas to try American soldiers – outside of American courts.
