I dunno as something is not sounding right. Each nation falls under the doctrine of sovereign immunity and legal action taken against them must be
allowed by the targeted government in question. As an very basic example the US Federal government has to agree to be sued before proceedings can
An interesting example of that process can be found with Bill Clinton as president and the lawsuit against the government for the Area 51 toxic mess
that resulted in the death of seve4ral people.
That doctrine is also a reason for the changes to the ICC as well as concept of a nation refusing to safeguard its own population can be referred to
the ICC for an ICC ruling.
If, as you US citizen, you want to file a lawsuit against the government of a foreign nation, it becomes federal jurisdiction and there are hoops
people have to jump through. We saw this with the lawsuit filed against Iran for complicity in the 9/11 attacks.
