    though the ICC can indict an individual either on its own or on referral from the Security Council. That said, it's a lot easier to indict a citizen of an ICC member state than a nonmember state, so most countries with as much blood on their hands as Israel and Palestine aren't members. The US has a kind of special status with the ICC but is basically a non-member for this reason (and because it's so hard for us to ratify treaties).
