For those who might not know, there is a new international court in the works. Previously we've supported this, and in theory we've supported the movement towards such multi-government resolutions to problems w/o the need to use weapons. Our president is doing his isolationist GOP'ers proud today. This week we cut off all military funding to 35 countries that would not give us immunity before this court. This court would be the first in human history that permanently exists for the purpose, in part, of dealing with genocidal criminals and crimes against humanity. I would go as far as to say that this administration has done more than any other to work against multi-national bodies of any type that have been established to deal with virtually any type of problem. The question they seem to present is 'do we need them?' for a few thousand years of human history, we've done without. about 80 years ago this idea started to take hold with the League of Nations, and then finally with the UN. the question, my friends, is whether we were better off pre-UN? if so, i'd like to hear some ideas of why we were better off before. anyone know the thought on this matter?

Hey big gray? You have any thoughts on the Liberia situation?Polly and the Mooch!
