Bush to say no to ICC?
||May 4, 2002
Over a year of our work and more than 160,000 petitions to President Bush
might be about to pay off. Congressman
Ron Paul's staff has been working
with White House staff during the
last several weeks to arrange delivery of
those petitions by Congressman
Paul. The press reported last night and
today that the Bush administration
is on the brink of announcing the
"unsigning" of the International
Criminal Court (ICC) treaty.
This significant first step is long overdue.
Congressman Paul submitted the
first bill calling on the president to denounce the ICC and
rescind the U.S.
signature on February 8, 2001. Earlier action on the
part of the U.S. to
rescind America's signature to the ICC treaty would have
sent a strong
signal to the countries that have since gone on to ratify
Unfortunately, President Bush's expected action will be too
late to block
the formation of this new U.N world court because with over
ratifications the ICC became a reality on April 11, 2002 --
a reality we
must still fight by passing Congressman Paul's H.R. 4169,
Servicemember and Citizen Protection Act of 2002.
Word of President Bush's pending announcement comes as a
big blow to the
world-government types and they will not take it lying down.
in Washington, such advance notice can be a carefully
orchestrated signal to
the "other side" that allows for last-minute
brinkmanship to turn the tide.
You can be sure pressure is mounting to keep President Bush
America's signature to the ICC treaty that former President
authorized just hours before he left office.
Please, don't let up on our pressure. Use the link

standing up for
America and our men and women in uniform. Encourage
him to stand firm and
to resist the pressure he will surely get from those who
believe in world
government instead of America's constitutional republic.
Take action to ensure we are not robbed by some last-minute
