US threatens to boycott Belgium over war crimes law

“The bitter dispute between the US and Europe over Iraq burst into the open again yesterday when the US threatened Belgium with a boycott and Germany and France registered protests at the UN about Washington’s continued opposition to the international criminal court”
The US defence secretary, Donald Rumsfeld, warned Belgium at a Nato meeting to drop its controversial war crimes law or face a boycott of Nato’s Brussels HQ.”

Rummy may have an ulterior motive here – as he could be a bit jumpy about being indicted for war crimes, eh?
