The Incessant Bombing of Aleppo Constitutes a Major War Crime!
War crimes are deliberate acts of brutality that exceed the acceptable limits of force [if that makes any sense]. Usually, a war crime can be construed “as a serious violation of the law of war that gives rise to individual criminal responsibility” [Wikipedia].
In the case of Aleppo, Syria, incessant bombing and the use of chlorine bombs marks both Bashar Assad MD and Vladimir Putin as war criminals. For some time, Bashar and Putin have decided to destroy both the infrastructure and people of Syria in a constant hail of barrel bombs and gas warfare.
They intend to demoralize the population and wipe it clean of any so-called ‘Muslim Extremists’, or any other ethnic group other than Alawite [ruling minority].What constitutes an extremist in this civil war is open to debate.
Our incredibly novitiate Obama and his sycophant White House staff have developed a non-strategy of warfare that begs any element of rationality or intelligence. Such absence of strategy is filled in by none other than the dutiful DCI John Brennan of CIA, which has completely abandoned any semblance of decency and HUMINT in order to jockey their non-expertise alongside those of our highly trained military personnel [ who have been circumspect in their actions].
The USG has become collusive with Vladimir Putin and Bashar Assad in destroying any semblance of Syria as both a functioning state; as well as a haven for those unfortunate Syrians who cannot escape into the EU. Russia and Bashar have made their intentions known to the world by suppressing any attempts to help those poor souls left in that once beautiful city in which diversity of Islam, Christianity, and Judaism thrived in the bazaars of trade.
Even Ms.Genocide herself, Ambassador Samantha Power, whose sole purpose in life was to decry ‘genocide’ in every habitat,village and farm, has been silent and wanting in her once highly perfected hysterical outcries.Where is this Irish misfit who comes to America and proclaims herself to be the newly sanctified “Joan of Arc”? We cannot hear her practiced voice of outrage in this massacre of children, men, and women, cleverly entitled, “A Syrian Civil War”.
It’s sickening that Obama has been MIA in both our domestic/foreign policies.The least he can and should do is to go to Syria and have a sit down meeting with the good doctor, Bashar Assad, who finds the Hippocratic Oath a hindrance to his rapacious, tortured whims. We know that Obama is not a brave soul, nor a man of courage. Yet, it may be opportune, in these last few months of his interminably stagnant presidency, if he could manage to spend our tax dollars on saving some lives in Syria. It would better than flying around the world blabbing about everything and accomplishing nothing.
Hopefully, there will be a day of reckoning concerning the atrocities committed in Syria by all sides involved in this conflict.Until that day, I will delineate the massacre of innocent Syrian civilians in Aleppo as a “War Crime”!
Time has not favored the weak and helpless. Where are the moral leaders of this world? I hear no outcry from the Argentinian Pope Francis who once also practiced torture and suppression as the Director of the Jesuits in that country under the Colonels’ Junta. Has he no courage to defy the diktats of immorality in the Middle East?
Where are the Imams, Rabbis and Priests? The silence is deafening! The world will pay for its silent insolence.
Genocide abounds in Syria and yet not a word has been spoken about it. So let it be said that it is life as usual and mankind at its worse.
