Bolton: ICC 'is already dead to us'

America's long-running reluctant relationship with the International Criminal Court came to a crashing halt on Monday as decades of US suspicions about the tribunal and its global jurisdiction spilled into open hostility, amid threats of sanctions if it investigates US troops in Afghanistan.
