When the US or Israel kills a civilian - You scream war crime - But when Taliban or Hamas or even terrorist murders civilians you say nothing
No that's not right... what I said was that "all suspects should be arrested and questioned" and that suspected offences by Afghans are "a matter for the Afghan authorities".
Your wrong again - here is what you said
There's been another atrocity in Afghanistan with the US Air Force killing up to 100 civilians in an air strike on Bala Baluk. I'm calling for the culprits to be arrested and prosecuted at the ICC for murder pursuant to Art 7 Statute of Rome.
No mention of (All Suspects ) just the mention of all US Air Force Culprits be arrested
and that suspected offences by Afghans are "a matter for the Afghan authorities".
Like I said before the US and coalition forces are invited by Afghanistan elected government to help defend themselves from Taliban terrorist so they are acting under Afghan authority , this means ICC has no jurisdiction from what YOU even spills out .
So yes it is a matter for the Afghan authorities who which ordered the forces into the villages to protect Afghan citizens from the Taliban
“It looks like at least some of the casualties were caused by the airstrikes,” the official acknowledged. A second Pentagon official said, “It wouldn’t surprise me if it was a mix,” but added that it was too soon to tell.
that was your initial post that started the thread or are you now saying you have this future powers
Future powers? No, in my opening post I called for US pilots to be prosecuted at the ICC for killing civilians because the Red Cross and other credible sources said that they were responsible. When you started trying to blame the Taleban on the strength of what Chuck Morris said I pointed out that their alleged actions were matters not for the ICC but for the Afghan authorities.
So by that means the ICC has jurisdiction to prosecute the Taliban as well
No I think that's where you've been going wrong - you and six. ICC jurisdiction over alleged crimes of the Taleban is qualified by the principle of ccomplementarity which requires it to give way to Afghan authorities. That doesn't apply to the US pilots because the Court can proceed whenever national agencies can't or won't take action.
In this case Karzai can't take action because he has to do as he's told by us... that's why he always prevaricates and plays for time and in the end does nothing. That was the pattern when all those civilians were killed by the US Air Force last August. This time something needs to be done because people can't go around bombing women and children with impunity - it's offensive to the conscience of mankind.
