Letter: ICC has proven itself a ‘kangaroo court’


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

We read that President Trump has denounced the ICC (International Criminal Court) as a “kangaroo court.” It is about time a world leader sees through that organization.

The Palestinian Authority sends rockets into Israel. The Israelis take appropriate military action to clear out the rocket sites. The ICC decides they need to investigate Israel for war crimes.

Imagine the USA is attacked by rockets coming from Mexico or Canada or Cuba, and we take military action to clear out the bases from which the rockets are being launched. Then the ICC declares they must investigate the USA for war crimes while ignoring the people responsible for sending rockets against civilian targets in our country.

What use is such an organization?
