22 Mar President Bush: Remove U.S. Signature from UN Court Treaty!
As you know, one of the last things President Clinton did before leaving the White House was to sign the United Nations’ International Criminal Court (ICC) treaty. Now, power-hungry UN officials are claiming that, once ratified, the ICC will have jurisdiction over U.S. citizens because of Clinton’s signature. The UN claims that the ICC will become international law once 60 countries individually ratify the treaty. Currently, they have 56 ratifications!
THE UN REPORTS THAT THE 60TH RATIFICATION WILL OCCUR ON APRIL 11TH—NEXT WEEK!!! They are planning a huge ceremony to celebrate the birth of their court.
The Bush Administration has expressed that the US will not take part in such a court. Pierre Prosper, US ambassador for war crimes, has stated the “the US is not and will not be part of the ICC.”
But time is running out!
President Bush must rescind the United States’ signature from the ICC treaty. He must do so before April 11th!
Without US participation, the UN court will be “dead on arrival.” We must make sure that happens!
Please call and fax President Bush and urge him to take immediate action to remove the US from the ICC!
