ICC Has it Out for Gaddafi’s Relatives as it Continues to Exclusively Target Africans

Is it really so difficult for the International Criminal Court to find any atrocities or crimes against humanity committed by state or non-state actors who don’t hail from the African continent? Furthermore, when are those who clamored for the mutilation of Muammar Gaddafi, claiming he was “attacking his own people”, going to admit that he he’d been correct all along? NATO and the US were never supporting “freedom fighters” or “the aspirations of the Libyan people” as they claim. They were supporting people like the LIFG, a group of militants who had among its membership an anti-Gaddafi dissident living in the UK named Ramadan Abedi, father of Salman Abedi who detonated a bomb at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester last month (and may have been a member of the LIFG himself). What did Europe and the United States accomplish by doing this? They turned what was once the most prosperous, healthiest and best educated state in Africa into a failed state torn apart by proxy-wars. Not only that but the overthrow of Gaddafi’s government saw the armaments of the overthrown Libyan government spread as far as Syria across the Mediterranean Sea all the way south to Mali and Nigeria, where militant groups like Boko Haram kidnapped and terrorized innocent civilians.

To say that the ICC almost exclusively targets members of African nations is not an exaggeration. It’s apparent that they fear the ramifications if they were to ever set their sights on the most powerful and destructive nations in the world, particularly the United States aka the destroyer of nations. So for now they will continue to go after those they see as much safer targets.
