The US threatened to sanction and even judges and other officials of the International Criminal Court if it charges any American who served in Afghanistan with war crimes. National Security adviser John Bolton says that, if the ICC comes after Americans, Israel, or other US allies, the US is prepared to slap financial sanctions and criminal charges on them. Bolton says the Trump administration objects to the idea that the ICC could have higher authority than the US Constitution and US sovereignty. -GEG
The United States threatened Monday to arrest and sanction judges and other officials of the International Criminal Court if it moves to charge any American who served in Afghanistan with war crimes.
White House National Security Advisor John Bolton called the Hague-based rights body “unaccountable” and “outright dangerous” to the United States, Israel and other allies, and said any probe of US service members would be “an utterly unfounded, unjustifiable investigation.”
“If the court comes after us, Israel or other US allies, we will not sit quietly,” Bolton said.
He said the US was prepared to slap financial sanctions and criminal charges on officials of the court if they proceed against any Americans.
“We will ban its judges and prosecutors from entering the United States. We will sanction their funds in the US financial system, and we will prosecute them in the US criminal system,” he said.
“We will do the same for any company or state that assists an ICC investigation of Americans,” he said.
Bolton made the comments in a speech in Washington to the Federalist Society, a powerful association of legal conservatives.
– Investigation into detainee abuse –
Bolton pointed to an ICC prosecutor’s request in November 2017 to open an investigation into alleged war crimes committed by the US military and intelligence officials in Afghanistan, especially over the abuse of detainees.
Neither Afghanistan nor any other government party to the ICC’s Rome Statute has requested an investigation, Bolton said.
He said the ICC could formally open the investigation “any day now.”
He also cited a recent move by Palestinian leaders to have Israeli officials prosecuted at the ICC for human rights violations.

If illegal aliens living in the US were deported, it would save taxpayers an astounding $622 billion over a lifetime. A majority of Americans support Trump’s plan to mass deport illegal aliens following inaction from Congress. [Too bad it’s no longer supported by Trump.]

Offline is a documentary on the inevitability of the Earth being slammed by a mega solar flare – not the common type that interrupts communications and creates a light show in the Northern skies – but the big brothers thousands of times more powerful. These monsters deliver enough energy to blow apart the master transformers that supply the planet’s energy grids. When that happens, the lights go out for longer than anyone wants to think about. These X-Class solar storms hit the Earth every 150 years, on average. The last one arrived 156 years ago. We are overdue (More)

Russia says terrorists plan to stage a chlorine attack, with the assistance of UK special services, to create a pretext for the US and the West to strike Syria. The Russian spokesman identified Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, which is a rebranding of al-Qaeda, as the group planning to stage the attack and put the blame in on Assad’s forces.
John Bolton says the US is fully prepared to respond to any attack with “unrelenting force.” Critics are concerned over the possibility of a staged false-flag event against a US war ship that would be used to justify US aggression.
