Makes you wonder if the authors understand why the USA is NOT a signatory of the International Criminal Court. It is funny watching a nation terrified of being held accountable for crimes around the globe pointing a finger at another.

‘Only’ 60 years too late for hundreds of thousands of unfortunate victims, but better now than in another decade or 2 or 3. What really intrigues though is: WHY, so many of the Earth’s righteous nations have ‘diplomatic relations’ with this contemporary version of Auschwitz called NK. Why do we accept their ambassadors, why do we have embassies there, why are they even allowed to be at the UN ? As for ‘bringing them to justice’, the only justice might be for the leadership to be sent to Camp 14 and suffer what they have imposed on others over the decades.

North Korea is a land of horrors, But why waste the effort? The dead and injured are North Koreans. These same animals have kidnapped Japanese and South Koreans off their own soils and there was no punishment. The Chinese and Japanese committed many war crimes against the Koreans prior to 1953. When North Korea collapses someday, others will punish their ex-rulers and turn around and commit similar crimes. Winners do not get punished. Who was punished for the senseless bombing of Dresden, the murders in the Katyn Forest, or the rape of Berlin or Nanking? Mass murder is an unforgivable crime, that occurs all too often and,in fact, rarely punished. If the law does not protect everyone, it is merely a another form of corruption. Sound extreme, well look at the crimes and behaviors accepted in some portions of our society and punished in others. Contact me for examples.

Great news. So will they also get around to bringing Dick Cheney, George W. Bush and Donald Rumsfeld?

There is a bit of irony in the US, it refuses to bring any of its own citizens to trial but happily wishes to bring others.

Almost as ironic as you whining about the US, when the US is barely even mentioned. Did you even bother reading the article, or did you just go straight to the comments, to post your daily dose of anti US diatribe? Here, I’ll make it super easy for you…

“Japan and the European Union led the effort a year ago at the Geneva rights council for the inquiry into persistent allegations of crimes against humanity in North Korea.”

See? That wasn’t so hard, was it? btw… There was no mention of Bush in the article either. Just an FYI… This is 2014. You might want to move into this decade.
