    US punishes Mexico for joining International Court

    How dare Mexico decide to go against the wishes of the playground bullies, the US, this report from the Star Ledger:

    ICC-related sanctions have cut the roster of trainees from the hemisphere by almost 800 over the past few years, eroding the traditionally deep ties between the U.S. and Latin American militaries. Worldwide, about two dozen countries have been sanctioned.

    Countries that wish to join the ICC and evade sanctions have the option of signing immunity agreements with the United States that shield Americans from ICC jurisdiction.

    Mexico announced last month that it has no plans to enter into any such deal, known in government lexicon as an "Article 98" agreement.
