The article debates the U.S. decision not to ratify the Treaty of Rome's International Criminal Court (ICC). It takes the exact opposite view of the ICC, highlighting the risks to the U.S. Service-members serving in United Nations-monitored military conflicts. It highlights the role of the U.S. Congress in passing the American Service-members' Protection Act of 2002 requiring immunity from ICC prosecution before the nation can participate in UN peacekeeping and peace enforcement operations.
