do UC hypocrisy?

| | TrackBacks (0)


The U.S. [and, apparently the Human Rights Center at the UC Berkeley School of Law] upholds a series of double standards on international criminality. It is the number 1 advocate of international criminal justice for others, but refuses to subject its own officials to the jurisdiction of the ICC [International Criminal Court], even going so far to threaten the use of military force in the Hague if the ICC indicts any US citizens. Richard Falk argues that the rule of law must be implemented consistently for people to take it seriously, and not only when it's convenient.
