    It's not like the US is the driving force behind the Liberian war crimes tribunal.  We're not the driving force behind any genuinely international regime of criminal justice; we'd rather haul selected miscreants into our own system, as an assertion of our wonderfulness.  (Us and Baltasar Garzón, quite a pair.)  I just don't see the case that what's happening to Taylor pére has anything to do with US imperialism.  If you're arguing that all perps should walk free because ours do, I'm not sure what that would accomplish except greater net impunity.
