This is an interesting
development.

The "unsigning" of the treaty, which is expected to be announced Monday, will be a decisive rejection by the Bush White House of the concept of a permanent tribunal designed to prosecute individuals for genocide, crimes against humanity and other war crimes.

5. How can you un-sign a treaty!??!
That's the whole point, it's like a contract!!!

Oh, wait, first we're not going to go along with the thing that says we'll abide by treaties, so we don't have to play by the rules. Oh yeah.

O.M.G. Unbelievable!!!
