When is a War Criminal not a War Criminal?

Or in other words, when does bringing a war criminal to justice seem somehow less important than trying to dismiss an online campaign to bring a war criminal to justice?

… When you and your army find it too embarrassing …

… When you’re a Rightie and you think the campaigners are too Liberal

… When you’re a Leftie and you think the campaigners are too Capitalist

… When you think it’s all about One World Government and the Illuminati …

… When it doesn’t suit Western 'clientele diplomacy' ...

… When the issues are ‘problematic’ …

… When the whole thing is just too bloody complicated

At the time when Karadzic and Mladic were still at large in Europe, the pressure on the relevant authorities to capture these men to bring them to justice for their past crimes was ever stronger - and caught they were! In principle, is Kony, somewhere in Africa  any different?

Ever more analysis here, here, here, here, here, here, and just about everywhere else you look.
