The ICC is a tool of Imperialism and neo-colonialism and nothing more. Their intent is to punish leaders in Countries that were once Colonies of the various Colonial Empires centered in Europe so as to ensure those Countries remain subservient.

While they did try white leaders from the Balkan States , this was done to help foster the breakup of Yugoslavia which the Western European Countries feared was too independent and might form closer ties with Russia. They needed a power vacuum in that region so as to exert their own control over the same , this done by forming weaker client states.
