    When I saw this thread, I assumed the turd OP was referring to syria so I fixed it for her:

    "Syrian officials have to fear visitng anywhere in the world except iran, china and russia. They will likely be arrested and face war crimes' and crimes against humanity charges if they travel anywhere else."

    Yup, Muslim leaders are slaughtering their people by the thousands and all that this jerkoff can talk about is Israel.

    Doron Almog I get..but Livni I think is a bit of a reach.

    I don't see you can hold the entire cabinets of countries responsible for deaths committed by their soldiers - there needs to be a direct link to the command structe; clear evidence that orders were given.

    Both Lebanon and Gaza experienced a large number of civilian casualties and civilian infrastructure destroyed.

    It is too consistent to be rogue troops. It looks more like policy.

    Tinmore -

    I agree - but I would expect the policy to be determined more by military leaders than political ones - unless there is a clear paper trail to suggest otherwise.

    Conceptually, I think this is vital to the future of the ICC system. We need to prosecute those guilty of war crimes, but we have to be careful not to pursue political cases - there needs to be a clear case against an individual with proof that they noy only attended meetings, but gave orders to, for instance, ignore civilian casualties.

    I don't agree with charging Livni (or Colin Powell, or Hillary Clinton or Jack Straw) with war crimes, because I don't believe any of them ever ordered a soldier to do anything to a civilian.
