“We fight an enemy that respects no law of war, we will continue to hold ourselves to a higher standard — by living up to the values and the rule of law that we so ardently defend… We will proceed with humility… Ultimately, freedom must be won by the people themselves… But we can and must stand with those who so struggle.”
Israel and the U.S. are two of the countries that have never signed onto the International Criminal Court. It oversees an international rule of law.
Why hasn't the U.S. ever become a member of this court? My answer later.
