The el camino real to international chaos & even war

The Spanish government issued an international arrest warrant against three American soldiers for firing a tank shell in Baghdad which killed a Spanish journalist. In response to Spain's initial complaint the Pentagon investigated the situation and cleared the soldiers.

Today's trend of nations asserting universal jurisdiction for their definition of a war crime could lead to diplomatic chaos, and even war should a national leader become the target of a foreign political vendetta.

Since President Bush is commander-in-chief, conceivable Spain could charge him as well.
