Re: <nettime> NATO disrupting the course of justice in Libya and International Criminal Court not reacting

I dont think that international relations should be mixed with criminal law if we want something like justice, real rules that govern all of the times in all cases - and is there anybody who can give international pardons, btw? - and I still have some sort of sympathy for the "devil", but this is plain nonsense and I am surprised to read it:

When a court orders an alleged killer to be arrested and it notices that someone else tries repeatedly to kill ‘their killer’…. it would issue also an arrest warrant for the murderer ‘in spe’ of the indicted.

It depends on the circumstances.

There are more important things to complain. The unwillingness of the "rebels" to talk with him that I would call a barbaric uncivilised behaviour, NATO does support this, and the definition of a "civilian" anyway. There is no clear message what Gaddafi should do, the most basic necessity for any rule of law, except to go which is not the content of the UNSC Res.. And a prolonged civil war (that would be perfectly ok unter the Geneva Conventions) is very expensiv

Btw, what does it have to do with art? It is about words and not images, images suck badly, you cannot make anything "visible" in Libya that is not political kitsch.
