Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I've seen all sorts of characterizations about Kosovo, one of my favorites is that it was "illegal but legitimate." How Orwellian can you get? The hair they split there is that since diplomatic, legal efforts failed the intervention was legitimized (they must mean politically) by the perceived need to save lives.

I know no one - ot a single person - who would even try to justify Gitmo. Why the world doesn't prefer charges against Rumsfeld, Yoo, Addington, Cheney, Bush et al is beyond me. There is at least one city here in the US who passed a law ordering the arrest of Cheney should he go there. Look at Bashir in Sudan. Not being a party to the ICC is no longer a barrier to prosecution.
