Update2: As a gesture of fellowship amongst the group, here are a list of links supporting the probability of some sort of tribunal process against the west. The momentum and political mandate for such action is slowly growing around the world. With the move away from USD geopolitical and economic hegemony will come the inability of American interests to veto such actions taken against them for war crimes committed over the last 7 decades. How the process will look, and who will be held responsible can not be determined, but once the required leverage is achieved, you can bet a formal process will be enacted against America for reparations.

This list can go on for a very long time. If any readers question the validity of what I have presented in this post, I suggest they do there own research and consume the vast amount of information which is beginning to accumulate in regards to war crimes committed by the west and its partners and institutions, such as NATO.
Before closing, I’d like to bring to the attention of all of you the work of Gajendra Singh and his piece titled The Duality of an International Financial, Political, and Legal System – Conferring Impunity on Major War Criminals. The material can be read at the following link-http://tarafits.blogspot.ca/2014/04/iraq-war-crimes-international-legal.html
Update: The recent announcement by the Obama administration in regards to the AIIB does not mean America is suddenly joining that institution. It would still require congressional approval, and considering the US Congress has refused to pass the 2010 IMF Reforms, which the Obama administration also supports, strongly suggests that any AIIB membership will also be refused. The Obama administration, as represented by US Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, last week called on congress again to pass the IMF reform package as America was losing influence in the world. This reluctance by Congress is what was implied in the post below about America not being admitted into the AIIB, no matter what Obama wants.
The increasing isolation of Washington picked up speed this morning as it was announced by Christine Lagarde of the International Monetary Fund that cooperation with the new Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank will offer “massive room” for opportunity on infrastructure financing.
The AIIB, which was launched in October, 2014, is set with the objective of promoting road, rail, port, and other infrastructure construction projects in Asia, and around the world. The establishment of the bank itself is being touted as a response to the failure of the administration in Washington to enact on supporting legislation to the IMF 2010 Quota and Governance Reforms. These reforms were agreed upon by all members of the G20 as a response to the financial crisis of 2008, and as a means to give the emerging markets a more equitable representation in the existing international monetary system.
Initial funding for the AIIB was established at 36.3 billion SDR (considering the increasing emergence of the multilateral framework, we will no longer be stating amounts in the traditional USD method, no matter the denomination of issuance), and will grow to 72.6 billion SDR by the end of this year, if not sooner.
