    "Netanyahu vows never to let Israelis be tried for war crimes" That's the sort of thing Milosevic used to say. Serbia would never let Serbs be tried by the Hague. His right-wing nutters loved the rhetoric, just as I bet Bibi's did today. Hmm, now let me think, where did Milosevic end his days, and how many of his cronies also ended up in the Hague? Advice to IDF commanders and politicians involved in planning Cast Lead: you might want to think twice before relying on Netanyahu's vow. The British or French police don't take orders from him. And remember - war crimes, like love, are forever. No statute of limitations on them, as the Simon Weisenthal centre, still hunting Nazis in their nineties will be happy to confirm.
