We can look at this two ways BZ. Either we can take the 'senisble' appraoch which says that so many leaders of so many countries might be questioned about war cromes under this law (from Russian leaders about Chechnya, to Brits and Americans about Iraq and Afghanistan. to Israel over Lebanon 2 and Cast Lead, to assorted Balkan leaders etc. etc.) that it is simply impractical, prevents useful contacts and should be changed. There are arguments for that view. But maybe that's the sort of argument that was used against strictly applying laws to mighty barons back in the Middle Ages when they regularly got away, literally, with murder. Eventually, though, the barons were tamed and the world is a better place for it, I think you'll agree. Maybe this is the start of a revolution like that, which one day will mean that every general or politician tempted to lob bombs into civilian areas will think twice because they know they'll risk arrest for the rest of their lives.
