          lack the developed judiciary and legal armitures to do it themselves.  the u.s. legal system  doesn't fall in that class.  the fact that we are not a state party to the ratification of the tribunal is almost beside the point. we have the most developed legal system in the world, we have a huge justice department.  we would always have to do it ourselves,irregardless of our political power over other party states.
