One of the blogs I read is written by Prof. Jonathan Turley, a regular legal commentator on Keith Olbermann’s Countdown. One of his latest entries is about how Israel has vowed to block war crimes investigations, or prosecutions, regarding their action in Gaza.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed not to allow any Israelis to stand trial for war crimes even if demanded by the United Nations or world court.
(I wrote about the International Criminal Court here where I document just why it is unable to prosecute George W. Bush and Dick Cheney for their war crime of torturing prisoners.)
This action by Netanyahu mirrors the United State’s response to Italy’s prosecution of CIA agents when the U.S. government refused extradition of those agents.
So, what is on the horizon for the civilized world? War and more war…
