What do threats to the ICCt prove?

What do threats to the ICCt prove?

America has threatened the International Criminal Court that they will not give permission for investigation regarding their crimes in Afghanistan. The National Security Advisor, John Bolton, said that if the International Criminal Court began an investigation of war crimes by American soldiers, then it shall be punished. Giving a speech on the 11th of September, John Bolton said that they will use any means necessary to save their public from the International Criminal Court’s investigation. He further said that they will not avoid placing a sanctions on the judges and prosecutors of the Criminal Court, they will ban them from travelling to America. As a senior American official, Bolton made clear that the International Criminal Court has begun to pursue America, Israel and their friends however it will not continue remaining idle.

The International Criminal Court was established in 2002 for the registration and investigation of human rights violations and of war crimes. America has not obtained membership of this court. Most countries welcomed the aforementioned court and this court now has the support of 123 countries. At the end of 2017, the International Criminal Court opened its branch in Afghanistan which has recorded more than 110 complaints in Afghanistan until now.

On an international level, America presents itself as the upholder of human rights, chief of the civilized world and protagonist of providing justice however, on a practical level it is the chief of genocide and responsible of oppression. It has ignited the fire of oppression and tyranny throughout the world and hundreds of thousands of people became helpless upon migration because of American oppression – Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Libya and Somalia are living examples of this.

On Western media and in Kabul, the media outlets running upon the resources of the aggressors are trying to hide the war crimes of the invaders and Kabul administration. At various opportunities, from the outset up until now, they have prepared and published various programs against the Mujahideen. Regardless of how much they try to deceive the public, the realities will certainly be revealed.

By officially threatening the International Criminal Court and warning them of serious consequences, America has made it clear that they refrain from investigating the crimes of its soldiers. This proves that America does not even give ordinary status to international organizations and communities. It uses such institutions to deal with its opponents. This is very important; giving threats of serious consequences to the International Criminal Court on the part of America is a clear admission of the perpetration of its crimes in Afghanistan.
