I wouldn’t trust anything the UN did personally, but how about you? Do you think this will work as intended, or is this going to become too political to be trusted?

UNITED NATIONS (AP) - Two years after taking office, the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court is investigating alleged war crimes in Congo, Uganda and Sudan's conflict-wracked Darfur region.
Luis Moreno-Ocampo said the court is also looking at killings in Colombia and Ivory Coast.
He said the world's first permanent war crimes tribunal - created to punish perpetrators of the worst atrocities if national courts don't act - is a busy place, and that he expects two or three new cases every year.
Moreno-Ocampo, in an interview Wednesday, said investigators in Uganda are finishing the collection of evidence of alleged crimes by the Lord's Resistance Army, and he hopes by the end of the year to present cases to the court's judges, who will decide whether to issue indictments and arrest warrants.
They would be the first for the court, which began work in July 2002.
