110. I agree that our courts AND our political leaders
are not equipped to deal with them. I wish I were wrong, but I doubt the ICC is equipped to deal with them either. It would be equivalent to moving a trial to another jurisdiction because the well was poisoned here, but I seriously doubt that the well has not been poisoned everywhere regarding this regime.

Even if that were a successful alternative, it wouldn't solve the corporate take over problems here. Unless we are able to muster enough balls to begin to deal with it ourselves, conviction by the ICC will only shift power to corporate dems who will use the same tactics but be even smarter about covering their tracks.
