Target Iraq

Program #RITS001. Recorded in Boston, MA on July 23, 2002.

The U.S. is holding military aid hostage, and for ransom they want immunity in the International Criminal Court. This deal, put forward by Bush, would halt military aid to countries unless they agree not to use the Court to try Americans for war crimes. The International Criminal Court, the ICC, was created to try individuals accused of war crimes, genocide, and crimes against humanity in order to bring criminals to justice and deter future atrocities. Bush's unprecedented "unsigning" of the ICC treaty keeps the U.S. government on track with its policy of so-called full-spectrum dominance - officially defined as the ability of U.S. forces operating alone or with allies, to defeat any adversary and control any situation across the range of military operations. There is no better example of unilateral U.S. policies that lead to ever more animosity than our current trajectory in Iraq.
