US concerned about definition of aggression as international crime

THE HAGUE — A United States ambassador said Thursday that Washington was concerned about how aggression will be defined as an international crime.

“I would be remiss not to share with you my country’s concerns about an issue … to which we attach particular importance: the definition of the crime of aggression,” US war crimes ambassador Stephen Rapp told a gathering in The Hague of the International Criminal Court’s Assembly of State Parties (ASP).

The United States is taking part in a meeting of the ASP, as an observer, for the first time since the world’s only permanent court for genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity started operating in 2002.

As an observer…how cute. So if they don’t like the movie, they can get up and leave. How handy for the country most guilty of wars of aggression in this century.
