According to a report by the Associated Press (11 November) some NATO diplomats are worried that the alliance may be investigated by the International Criminal Court (ICC) after its prosecutor said allegations of crimes committed by NATO in Libya would be examined "impartially and independently".NATO may be investigated by ICC for alleged war crimes in Libya
The NATO diplomats speaking anonymously said action to pre-empt a war crimes investigation would likely include an immediate internal legal review of all incidents in which NATO bombing or other actions caused civilian casualties.

NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen even refuses to acknowledge that were any civilian deaths caused by the bombing. During his monthly press briefing on 3 November, he said:
As regards collateral damage, I have to say that we conducted our operations in Libya in a very careful manner, so we have no confirmed civilian casualties caused by NATO
Casualties, by the way, includes injuries as well as deaths, technically. I do have to say, I imagine you can't fail to confirm a single one of the thousands of civilians they killed, especially in Sirte, without treating the facts and common sense in any other than "a very careful manner."
Chances any NATO country's leader will be handed over for war crimes against humanity trials, or stabbed in the ass and shot dead before even getting the chance?
More perhaps later, or in comments...
