    How ironic that two of the permanent members of the UNSC have invoked the ICC without themselves recognising it.

    It looks like three of the permanent members of the security council don't recognise it.

    ^^It's bit unclear to me who the third member would be,China and the U.S. sure,as far as I know the Russian Federation is a signatory.India of course is agin it but is only a temporary member.

    ( on further investigation it appears they haven't fully ratified it yet due to problems with their constitution they are however working towards full ratification.30 odd countries have signed but not ratified)

    From the map it looks like the Russians didn't ratify the treaty.

    The US signed the treaty too.

    Clinton signed Bush unsigned.:rolleyes:

    I think in 2017 wars of aggression will come under the treaty,something that would have seen both Bushes,Blair,Clinton and many others hauled in front of the court.
