NATO’s careful avoidance of any investigations of the many civilians they killed over several months of bombing western Libyan cities may have kept the situation quiet for awhile, but now it looks like the story is coming out without them.
That’s the news out of the Hague, anyhow, where Luis Moreno-Ocampo, the chief prosecutor for the International Criminal Court (ICC) has announces that they will investigate NATO’s war crimes during the bombing of Libya.
Moreno-Ocampo confirmed that they have received a “series of complaints” from Libyan civilians about NATO as well as the National Transitional Council (NTC), the Benghazi-based rebel movement NATO’s war was supporting.
Moreno-Ocampo also confirmed reports that Saif al-Islam Gadhafi was attempting to negotiate a surrender to the ICC, saying he had received questions from Saif’s associates about the terms of such a surrender.

It's good to see the ICC standing up to the bullies at NATO and telling them they can't get away with killing legions if innocent civilians.
Seriously, the only reason to investigate is to exonerate. "Mistakes were made, but not intentially". "Crimes of the transitional forces will be investigated, sometime after a decade or so". Really, does one really expect anything else? It reminds me of the charges against Kosovo Albanians. The guys killed witnesses, and others disappeared. Some were given protection in Germany, and found dead in Geman park. Mass murderers got away free in Bosnia and especially Kosovo. The most detailed report on the crimes comitted by the very HEAD of Kosovo's so called Government, crimes of drugs and organs trafficking — carefully shoved under the rug!!!! Human Rights Watch — shoved it under the rug. And the Swiss former prosecutor in EU, who published the report and was adopted by the Council of Europe — quietly retired out of EU position. ANYBODY cares? No. There are just way to many crimes, and way to many criminals runnig all kinds of places, and are supported by the very institutions set up to prosecute evil around the globe.
Them Serbians rate just above Iranians on the hit list of bad guys issued by the real bad guys.
Moreno-Ocampo gonna "investigate" NATO? Yeah yeah sure sure. And in an entirely odd synchronicity, pigs SUDDENLY sprout wings and take to flying holding patterns directly over downtown Jerusalem. Which as it turns out, really put Bibi Netanyahu off. Seems those flying pigs crapped all over Bibi's plans for 'war on Iran'.
UN — INSANITY
Establishing a no-fly zone in a way that made civilians the high value targets, surely it is the United Nations that the ICC should investigate.
They're probably fantasizing that even a sham 'probe' might restore some modicum of 'credibility'…
Rest assured that the outcome of any "investigation" by the ICC will resemble, uncannily, the "investigation" that the Chilcot Inquiry performed (it was an act after all) which whitewashed or ignored the facts and cleared the war criminal Blair of any responsibility.
To get an impression of the funniest moments of this fraud court watch here the best part of an film titled "shocking, Milosevic is innocent" video from this fake court http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmfoNuS_3og
at 3:20 after the womans intro, it begings 😀
There is no International Criminal Court, just a NATO court. That's trivial to prove. The US Congress passed a resolution giving the US President the power to wage a war of aggression against any country where any US citizen was put on trial for war crimes. The NATO governments and the prosecutors and judges at the NATO Criminal Court made so little fuss that there are some people who don't even know it happened.

Gazelles are bringing a court action against the lions. A court of hyenas will investigate.
US?NATO have been getting away with war crimes for years. All their crimes should be investigated and sent to trial. NATO had boot on the ground. They hired private Security Companies/Mercenaries like (Blackwater) as well. All their wars are for oil or other resources. This time it was oil/gold and to stop Gaddafi from using gold to trade oil instead of the US dollar.
