Trump is a clown. When you elect a clown to be our president, we should expect a circus. And, that is exactly what we have gotten!
His latest greatest show on Earth has been accusing President Maduro and other members of the Venezuelan government of criminal activities. Trump has even put a bounty of these people’s heads to help bring them to what Trump calls “justice”. But, of course, he is not looking for justice. He’s looking for just another greatest show on Earth!
If Trump were to really be looking for justice, he could have asked Maduro to agree to have his disagreement with him settled by the International Court of Justice (ICJ). The ICJ is a branch of the United Nations (UN) of which, they are both member states.
Trump would never do that, because what Trump has already done is in violation of the UN! Furthermore, if both sides petition the ICJ to hear the case, then the parties are expected to abide by the decision of the court. The United States Government (USG) would never allow anybody to tell it what to do!
If I were President Maduro, I would take Trump to the International Criminal Court (ICC) also in The Hague, Netherlands. Although there are 123 countries that endorse this tribunal in tryingcases of crimes against humanity, the USG is not one of them. China and Russia and a few other nationsdon’t recognize this court, because they too have committed crimes against humanity in the past!
Nevertheless, a judgement by the ICC against the USG would emphatically defuse Trump’s latest circus extravaganza. Trump’s bounty would be a hilarious joke to at least the 123nation supporters of the ICC.
The USG must continue to rob countries of their resources, if it wants to eventually rule the world. We must, therefore, understand that, and decide how we could organize ourselves to stop US hegemony.
We must, because those who want to rule the world with 800 military installations in 80 countries already around the world, don’t believe in LIBERTY AND IN JUSTICE FOR ALL!
Only a circus or a kangaroo court would.
