I'm aware of that Frank ... it took some time to write this essay about my reasoning. 😊

Impunity

No institution of the United Nations will or could make such an declaration. The United States of America as self-appointed global sheriff has made sure there is no other national jurisdiction or International Court permitted to try a US military for misdeeds attributed during his service.

Even the mercenaries hired for by the Pentagon or CIA for security at al. in Iraq or Afghanistan are freed from any liability. No one is left behind in a foreign country ...

Nicest symbol I am proud to refer to, is of course, the The Hague Invasion Act, passed by U.S. Congress.

The Hague On the Roll - ICJ Ruling

    After the threat to the ICC located in the city of The Hague by John Bolton recently, another top court has ruled against the United States of America. No "Invasion Act" yet conceived to kidnap the judges of the International Court of Justice located in the Peace Palace funded by Andrew Carnegie over 100 years ago.

[Enforcement can only be made possible through the UN Security Council ... veto will keep the Powers getting away scot free - Oui]

In Hindsight: The Security Council and the International Court of Justice

The US Armed Forces and US leaders got off without sanctions for years of torture, detention in Iraq and Afghanistan. Also the drone killings on such a scale with deaths of countless civilians are against human right and constitute war crimes.

In the end, when someone is court-martialed, a president like idiot Trump grants a pardon and fires the commander responsible for a courageous act of justice. In all these cases, it's an International Court of Law which should step in ... the US chickened out and live their military and political lives with impunity.
