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!
