War crimes?

As more and more American allies--including Saudi Arabia, Turkey, France, Russia, and Germany--line up to denounce the war as illegal, one question is outstanding: is Bush committing war crimes? Read the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court and the Geneva Convention and decide for yourself. Although the US has defied UN resolution 1441 and several articles of both these documents, and bailed out of the International Criminal Court, Donald Rumsfeld is now, conveniently, extolling the virtues of international law in accusing Iraq of taking US hostages.
