Bradley Manning is sentenced to 36 years in prison. His real "crime" was exposing America's war crimes. The real criminals got off scot free. This is not justice, at all. Several American presidents have much blood on their hands, along with one particular British Prime Minister. No prizes for guessing who that is. They are mass murderers.

The ICC is a political tool used when required but otherwise ignored. It doesn't really do it's job, it should be more firm in this case:

http://rt.com/news/libya-trial-gaddafi-son-052/

Before they came to power, the Libyan rebels themselves were calling for the UN to order the ICC to investigate the alleged crimes by the Gaddafi family and put them on trial in The Hague. Once in power, they however backed down on their own initiative.

The ICC might now file a complaint to the UN Security Council, if Libya continues to ignore the Court’s request.

“Libya has a legal obligation to surrender Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi to the ICC pursuant to UNSC resolution 1970 (2011) which referred the situation in Libya to the ICC,” the Court’s Public Affairs Unit told RT.

Saif al-Islam's lawyer in the ICC, John Jones believes the Lybian trial will most likely end in his defendant being executed.

Perhaps if the ICC adopted the death penalty for serious crimes, it would be more respected.

It's very hard not to politicize any international body, but little effort is made to maintain standards, never mind any balance. Blair and Bush should have been there a long time ago they broke international law and violated the sovereignty of another country based on lies. This has lead to the wild west culture we see today with other foreign adventures.

Of course, the ICC seems to work in favour of the West. No Western leaders are brought to book. If only this trend were broken and justice were for all.

America has been invading countries since 1945. Obama says America is "exceptional", meaning they are above international law and that the Geneva Conventions do not apply to them. Torture and mass murder is the order of the day.
