US threatens ICC

By José M. López Sierra


The United States (US) has threatened sanction and military invasion against the International Criminal Court (ICC), if it dares to issue arrest warrants for top Israeli government officials for committing genocide against the indigenous people of Palestine. Please click on this link for more:

The US, in essence, wants to throw the ICC in jail, just like it has done to US students protesting for Palestine.

This threat adds another important layer of credibility to Gallup Polls that have consistently named the US as the biggest threat to peace. The US has always shown contempt for the global rule of law, as it hypocritically claims itself to be the champion of democracy, and claims to support a so-called “Rules Based Order”.  

Another example of the US’ hypocrisy is its constant refusal to comply with 42 United Nations’ resolutions demanding that it immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. Today, the US threatens to go to war against China to supposedly “protect Taiwan’s inalienable right to self-determination and independence”.

The US complained in its ICC letter that it has never issued arrest warrants for the “genocidal General Secretary of the People’s Republic of China Xi Jinping, or other Chinese officials”. The US, interestingly, acknowledges its own complicity in Israel’s genocide, by stating that it would consider any action by the ICC against Israel to be also an action against the US!

What a difference in the US’ reaction, when the ICC issued an arrest warrant against President Putin. The US applauded that! The Russian Federation, however, did not react by threatening to sanction, or militarily invade the ICC. The so-called “US accused dictatorship” behaved more rationally than the so-called “beacon of democracy”!

The world must understand that the US is a runaway train heading towards a calamity. It is, therefore, incumbent on the world to stop that insane train!

The US’ “Rules Based Order” means organized crime.

Nací en NYC. Me mudé a Puerto Rico en el 1980 donde eventualmente me convertí en independentista al ver que PR no se administra para los boricuas. Me retiré tempranamente de la pedagogía para luchar 24/7 por la descolonización de Puerto Rico a través de marchas pacíficas anuales y empujar a la ONU hacer su trabajo. Necesitaremos un tsunami de gente protestando permanentemente para obligar a USA a cumplir con la ley internacional que prohíbe el coloniaje.
