The United States does not recognize the authority of the so-called "International Criminal Court".[1]

The International Criminal Court (ICC) 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.[2] The court There are currently 123 members. The United States, Russia, China, and Ukraine have refused to recognize the authority of the ICC. The U.S. Congress passed the American Service-Members' Protection Act (ASPA) in 2002 which authorized of the President of the United States to "use all means necessary and appropriate to bring about the release of any U.S. or allied personnel being detained by, on behalf of, or at the request of the International Criminal Court", and prohibited the United States from providing military aid to countries which had ratified the treaty establishing the court. In 2018, the United States threatened to sanction and arrest the judges of the court.[3]

  • 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.[4]

In some places in the world, the court is allowed to try American soldiers – outside of American courts.[5] The court has also targeted Israel.[6]

Before its creation, the court was originally planned to have rules to encourage more international cooperation. However, the court's structure ultimately went in a "radical" direction, including having the ability to bring charges against non-member nations and having an independent prosecutor, things which caused many countries to refuse to cooperate with the court.[7]

On March 19. 2023 the ICC prosecutor, Karim Ahmad Khan, issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin allegedly for abducting children. Khan's brother, Imran Ahmad Khan, a former UK Member of Parliament just days earlier was released from prison on February 21, serving only half his sentence for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy.
