  International Criminal Court - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The International Criminal Court (ICC) was established in 2002 as a permanent tribunal to prosecute individuals for genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes, as defined by several international agreements, most prominently the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.
Also, the ICC is separate and not to be confused from the International Court of Justice, which is a body to settle disputes between nations, and the Belgian War Crimes Law.
The establishment of the court was first proposed in 1949 by the International Law Commission at the request of the UN General Assembly.

 The International Criminal Court--the United States Sends Regrets by David Davenport
The United States has been a major supporter of the temporary international criminal tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda (precursors of the permanent ICC) and was one of the nations helping to shape the new court.
Although the court's primary agenda is war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide, it also has jurisdiction over a new, undefined crime of "aggression." With troops stationed around the world, the U.S. military has reason to be concerned.
Although its humanitarian purposes may be noble, a criminal court of universal jurisdiction created by one-third of the nations of the world, representing one-sixth of its population, constitutes a major power play.

 The Bush Administration’s Policy on the International Criminal Court Is Correct   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
ICC advocates need to decide whether their allegiance to the court is more important than the need to see that justice is done.
Supporters of the court appear more interested in whether or not a country is a party to the Rome Statute than in whether or not the country actually lives up to the principles of the ICC treaty.
ICC supporters’ time would be better spent in pressing these countries to hold their nationals and military to account or urging ICC signatories Iran, Sudan, Zimbabwe, and Russia to address human rights concerns in their countries––violations that range from substandard to horrifying.

 International Criminal Court (ICC)
During the Clinton administration, the U.S. was one of 139 countries which signed the Rome Statue, a treaty to establish the ICC, but on May 6, 2002, the Bush administration refused to consider ratification and announced to the UN of the U.S. decision to nullify its signature and thus withdraw its support.
Those who support the ICC claim those concerns are unwarranted, that safeguards are in place, that it would automatically determine the merits of a case before proceeding.
