Can I have a quibble? Robertson is damning of those of us who wrote to the war crimes court complaining about Britain's involvement in the 'War Against Terror'.Like most of those who protested, I did not try and say the war was illegal. The possible grounds for complaint to the court are there for all to read, and I protested on the grounds of treatment of prisoners, then being ferried through Scottish airports in unmarked CIA jets and, with our government's knowledge, being tortured. The reply from the court was very interesting. Did I really expect the court to arrest the leaders of the UK, one of the most powerful countries in the world? My answer was 'Yes' and that the court should give equal treatment to all. After all the European Court of Human Rights does not mollycoddle any of its members. Otherwise we would still have the tawse (cat of nine tails) in Scottish schools...
I found the chapter on General Pinochet very helpful for an essay that I was writing.The political background was explained along with why the judgements were made and why there were 3 trials of Pinochet.
I shall read all of his books now.
An awesome read.
