    US cuts aid over ICC immunity refusals

    The United States has cut military aid to 35 countries over their refusal to exempt US troops from prosecution by the new International Criminal Court (ICC).

    The US, which is not a signatory to the ICC, has asked nations that recognise the court to exempt Americans from its provisions over fears they could be subject to politically-motivated prosecution by the court.

    US officials says the suspension affects US allies like Brazil, Colombia and South Africa, the Baltic states as well as NATO hopefuls such as Bulgaria, Croatia, Slovakia and Slovenia.

    White House spokesman Ari Fleischer says the US government will never accept the court.

    "It's important to protect American service men and women and others in government," Mr Fleischer said.

    Our Washington correspondent John Shovelan says the decision to punish countries that have refused to exempt US troops from prosecution is the latest in a series of attacks on the court by the Bush administration.

    The US initially signed on to the court but later rescinded the agreement.

    The next step needs to be the other foot planted firmly in the buttocks of the UN while we watch them sail rump over head back over the Atlantic.

    Think about it, Evil. Do you really want to kick those UNers in the rear? Me, I had my fill of cleaning sh1t covered boots in the Army, lo these many years ago. :D

    Shiz, it is worth posting twice. Yeah!

    Hell, it would be worth the extra expense to buy a new pair of boots after soiling the other pair beyond use!
