Perhaps now Obama will send Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld and Cameron will send Blair, Campbell and Hoon to the ICC.

One can easily imagine Assad or the King of Bahrain indicted.

I have a hard time imagining either being indicted. Only isolated leaders without powerful sponsors are charged by the ICC.

Blowback have you seen the movie?

It's like the "impartial" Special Tribunal for Lebanon. You know, the one that indicts whichever ham sandwich the US Ambassador to Beirut designates.

Ah well - they can always do their luxury shopping in Dubai. But Mayfair will be off limits to them from now on - Ms. Assad must be very upset.

Considering the number of civilian deaths caused by any armed force/police forces in the last 50 years or so, I do not believe that ICC is anything but a political tool, especially of Western major powers - and their client states.

Apparently [according to Juan Cole]the indictments of MQ and his son have caused the OIL MINISTER of Libya to flee. INTERESTING analysis on Informed Comment today on that subject.
