  Spanish Judge want to run the world
A Madrid judge has issued an international arrest warrant for three U.S. soldiers whose tank fired on a Baghdad hotel during the Iraq war. Seems under Spanish law, a crime committed against a Spaniard abroad can be prosecuted here if it is not investigated in the country where it is committed. U.S. officials have insisted that the soldiers believed they were being shot at when they opened fire. Following the Palestine incident, then-Secretary of State Colin Powell said a review of the incident found that the use of force was justified.

So apparently the Iraq provisional govt didn't count as a government to that judge. That and he also apparently has no idea what a "War Zone" means. This is exactly the sort of thing we'd see all the time, despite assurances we've been given to the contrary, if we signed up for the International Criminal Court. If an American soldier accidentally killed a journalist from Belgium in a war zone, he'd have to be tried in Europe, and you better belive if an Air Force bomber killed some Iraqi insurgents, but their friends claim they were innocent, they'd put him in front of some ultra-left wing judge from France.

No thank-you to that. We investigate our own troops, in our own country, and if we decide that they've done something wrong, we'll punish them for it. That's how it is and how it should continue to be.
