I guess he saw the writing on the wall? Maybe he had become such a liability that his arms dealers were cutting off his supply? It's very strange.

Thank you, Nancy, for the good news. Now there are several men here who need to be tried for war crimes and I think we all know who they are. The men of whom I speak can't even travel to Europe because they are wanted men there. Why is it that they are not wanted here? (N, P, T)

Now don't ya wish the whole lot of dictators would turn themselves in? These people kill their own citizens, force young boys into an armed force, murder women and children, all in the name of power.

Some day we as citizens of the world will find the internal fortitude to finally come together as one voice and end all war. Some day we will finally focus our attentions on the real problems of medical needs, feeding and housing people, using creative ideas to help each country to use their money to develop jobs and farming techniques that fit each environment. Some day we will stand as one; we will stop all GMO foods, use only alternative energy, move to save our oceans and water ways for now and the future generations. Some day all we will stop all interference the simple and basic human rights of all humans ---- Some day.

"The United States government indicated it would send the Congolese rebel leader Bosco Ntaganda to the International Criminal Court (ICC) to be tried for grave international crimes."

Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld, and likely others, ought be accompanying him, though I doubt they will ever have the moral strength needed to turn themselves in for what they did in taking this nation to war in Iraq under completely fabricated pretenses.

Good, it's about time.
I wish our "evil entities", our own "war criminals" could be dealt with as easily. Unfortunately, our evils seem to be far too deeply entrenched, and are protected by powers at least as evil as they are. Money, family, position, power--hard to fight against, but unthinkable not to!
Thanks Nancy, for a hopeful article.

whatever the reason, i'm glad he's in custody and will be tried.

As to Gene's comment..."...Currently, similar crimial warrants have been issued for George Bush Sr. and Jr., Donald Rumsfeld, Tony Blair, Henry Kissinger, Bill Clinton and Dick Cheney; while officers of the World Court do not have jursidicton to enter the USA or Great Britain to apprehend these criminals, their travels in Europe and Southeast Asia are limited because they are subect to immediate detainment and extradiction to Belguim. (Kissinger and Rumsfeld have both signed orders to deploy O’Finioan with Corso as his case
officer.)"

Cheney also has a warrant outstanding in Switzerland, and Canada has some as well.
So it's now wonder these Hawks have now turned into chicken shits in regards to where they travel!
