John Bolton's address on the ICC

Recommended Posts

Here is the text of John Bolton's address concerning the ICC,  the United Nations  kangaroo court.  It is a sizzler.

The International Criminal Court does a fair bit of work that doesn't get to the level of hoopla we see with Bolton's policy headsup.  Most readers will remember this wonderful, awful moment from the other big trial group -- the specially-constituted tribunals to try Bosnian war-era crimes:

-- for more information from the source, on the ICC's work on Afghanistan issues. Focus: Alleged crimes against humanity and war crimes committed in Afghanistan since 1 May 2003

"Endless war for profit," with impunity, promised by Bolton and backed up by Trump?

"In fact, a side event at the Assembly of States Parties recently included a panel discussion on the possibility of adding "ecocide", environmental and climate-related crimes, to the list of offenses within the court's jurisdiction."

Yay! Let's punish some deniers! That'll shut them the fuck up! Wahoo! Let's find the filth guilty of "ecocide," put a few of them through the wood chipper, and then see how quickly the remaining gore-splattered deniers switch over to the "consensus" side. Skepticism has no place in science, so let's butcher some motherfuckers and call it justice. Fuck yeah!

The Europeans have deemed the burning of trees to be carbon neutral, encouraging people in essence to burn firewood instead of natural gas or oil which they would pay a carbon tax on.

Fucking morons.

A tree can absorb as much as 48 pounds of carbon dioxide per year and can sequester 1 ton of carbon dioxide by the time it reaches 40 years old.

Dead and burned tree sequester no carbon.  Trees do more for us than we do for them.
