Now that the completely illegitimate international "court" has rendered an "official" sentence against Charles Taylor of Liberia, we can expect a lot more nuclear proliferation in the world.
Before this, nasty dictators could often be induced to abandon ship by offers of asylum in some friendly country. (In fact Taylor received such an offer, but the offer was taken back when this process started.)
Now evil dictators have no positive option. They know from observing Iraq, Libya, and North Korea that the best way to insure perpetual power is to get nukes and point them at something important.
Smart work, egregious UN monsters. You've just guaranteed more war.
The whole concept of international "law" was made up to prevent Germany from rising again after WW2. That's the only reason, and it should have gone away after accomplishing its goal. But in the modern world idiocy never goes away, it just metastasizes.
