Is this a police action or a military action?

Glad to see that the U.S. State Department "welcomed the verdict". It's neither police or military - it's justice.

That's a good precedent since this was the first case of a Head of State being tried for War Crimes since Nuremburg.

And, of course, you can't welcome the verdict unless you agree with the process.

Oorah, Baby!

The world we're leaving for today's teens...

Without immediate global action on climate change, today's teenagers will be forced to live with the consequences of our inaction. The World Bank has issued their third report of climate change, and it says that global temperatures could rise by as much as 4 degrees Celsius by the time today's teens hit their 80th birthday.
