The US is demanding that any country accepting US military aid agree to never extradite Americans to the International Criminal Court or lose their aid. This, in effect, means that any nation wanting to join NATO must accept the US position or somehow find the money needed for NATO integration and standardization from other sources (which they cannot). The EU (looking over the same list of potential members) is insisting that all current and new EU members accept the principle that the ICC has universal jurisdiction and that no nation can be exempt.--Stephen V Cole
