Alex Jones: 'ICC is a kangaroo court'

Alex Jones: 'ICC is a kangaroo court'
The International Criminal Court (ICC) has issued a warrant for Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and a handful of associates.

 This isn’t the first time the ICC has come after figureheads, but with Gaddafi a sitting head of state, what implications does Colonel Gaddafi face? None if he comes to America, says radio host Alex Jones. The United States is one of the nations that doesn’t make up the ICC, who relies on its member states to make arrests. According to Jones, the US is aware that the ICC is just a joke.“Certain elements of the United States realize the ICC is basically a global government court of the larger private sector banks that are dominating our society,” says Jones. “The ICC saying that they want to try Gaddafi for crimes against humanity, that would be like having Hitler over the Nuremberg trials,” he says.While the US is not condemning the ICC’s warrants, this international super power is taking a back seat to helping on the hunt for Gaddafi. While isolationism is the far from any practice the States has preached as of late, why are they sitting this one out?“This is kind of a joke,” says Jones. “The way they carry out trials is a joke. A total and complete kangaroo court,” is what he says of the ICC.Jones says the US doesn’t need the ICC, adding that “our common law is the best in the world.” Joining the member states that aid the ICC would just be “political grandstanding,” he says.
