Key allies are casualties of U.S. war on court

Maria Cristina Caballero, Colombian journalist and fellow at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, discusses the US reaction to the ICC. An interesting read.

It is time for Washington to reconsider its war against a court that serves to defend human rights around the world. It is time for the Bush administration to start focusing on the pressing issues confronting the Americas – terrorism and drug-trafficking, serious economic and social problems and crises of governance – and stop nonsensical sanctions against countries that have taken a stand for human rights.
