NATO Impunity

The court echoes a wider culture of impunity for NATO members, so, for example, Radovan Karadžić was jailed for 40 years as a war criminal, but George W. Bush and Tony Blair have not even been charged for committing a war of aggression which is widely undeerstood to have been illegal and which even a UK Deputy Prime Minister termed as auch.[4]
