What the fork!?!?!?

ezs note:  I came across it quite accidentally, but it shook me nevertheless.  The ICC is investigating the United States for possible war crimes.  All to no avail, unfortunately.  Y'see, we don't want to get our hands dirty, even though we got the United Nations started in the first place!!!  

Is it because we refused to ban IEDs - even when our own troops got maimed or killed?

Is it because we allowed (until the early 2000s) the (ahem) great state of Texas to throw LGBT+ people into prison - with no other reason?

I am going to call my Representative and my two Senators and urge them to join the ICC.  Yeah - I know - this is a real long shot.  But it starts with one.
