An Interesting Factoid I Somehow Missed 

Yahoo! News - US Lacks Votes for Immunity from War Crimes Court

This is a story about how the US might be susceptible to war crimes charges unless they can find a way reinstate a UN resolution which is about to expire. But this is the line in the story that caught my attention:
The resolution was first approved in 2002 after the United States vetoed a U.N. peacekeeping mission in Bosnia, and threatened to oppose others, one by one.
This is the administration that says that they liberated Iraq on humanitarian grounds. But before they would do that, they blackmailed the UN into giving them carte blanche to commit war crimes, and the blackmail target of choice was humanitarianism.
