What is the International Criminal Court for, exactly?

The deputy prime minister insisted he was speaking in a personal capacity, as a leading international lawyer warned that the statement by a government minister in such a formal setting could increase the chances of charges against Britain in international courts.

Shouldn’t we maybe consider whether it should consider the issues around things like the Iraq war. Courts get to aquit still, right? If Blair and Bush are sure that the Iraq war was right and legal, why shouldn’t they have the opportunity to convince an International Court of their views?

Why should the ICC just be for people “The Enlightened West” is already sure are war criminals?
