As for now, China and the Philippines are in the midst of a dispute over the Scarborough Shoal, one small rocky formation in the South China Sea Today's ABS-CBN reported:[ [http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/global-filipino/world/04/22/12/chinas-military-warns-confrontation-over-seas]
"China's official Liberation Army Daily warned that recent jostling with the Philippines over disputed seas where both countries have sent ships could boil over into outright conflict, and laid much of the blame at Washington's door."
I also read with interest a few comments on PLA and corruption within China. Can China not take step forward and do something about it? Interestingly, India has come up with a law called Right to Information Act which mandates timely response to citizen requests for government information. India has recently been doing quite a lot to try and reduce (if not completely overcome) corruption problems. China Daily recently reported that government and civilians hail combat against China. But how much is really being done? It would be good to hear some comments from Chinese citizens living in China. [[http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/china/2012-04/13/content_15041846.htm]]

Refer page 17 and onward. Thanks.
Quite interesting. I believe Libya was not a signatory to the ICC and it was evident from one of Gaddafi's speech that he would never submit to the jurisdiction of ICC. I believe Article 8 (1) (b) (iv) is a broader provision compared to Article 56 of the Protocol Additional to the Geneva Conventions.
