Whose Who at Davos

“Over 40 heads of state and government, as well as 2,500 leaders from business and society will convene at the 46th World Economic Forum Annual Meeting, from 20 to 23 January in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland,...”

“Ordinary folk trust Davos Man no more than they would a lobbyist for the Worldwide Federation of Weasels.” The Economist, January 26, 2013.

Attending Davos in 2016 will be some G7 Members and other leaders, and possibly some dictators. I believe some of these “leaders” and their advisors and others are responsible for much of the present day misery, chaos, criminality, slaughter, destruction and civil wars and illegal wars around the world....
I also believe that instead of being protected in luxurious surroundings, some of them need to be arrested, dressed in orange prison-issue jump suits and held responsible for their actions. Some have even sold arms to dictators that kill civilians, and they are called “leaders”?

“A Saudi-led coalition has been accused of using banned cluster bombs, bombing civilian targets and destroying hospitals – either by accident or by design—using weapons provided primarily by the US, UK and France.” Thalif Deen, Jan. 14, 2016.

Unfortunately, these “leaders” are not being held accountable, for what I believe are “The 21st Century WAR CRIMES: Millions Dead, Millions of Refugees, Soldiers Dead and Maimed, Countries Destroyed, Children Contaminated, and the War Criminals are FREE.”
Below are links to videos, where reputable people are speaking. These people are stating numerous wars were and are planned:

“General Wesley Clark: Wars Were Planned - Seven Countries In Five Years”

“France's Former Foreign Minister: UK Government Prepared War in Syria Two Years Before 2011 Protests”

Surely it is a war crime to plan wars on countries that never invaded you, is it not? The fallout from these wars is horrendous. Hell upon earth has been, and is being, created. Yet, the monstrous crimes of the perpetrators are being covered up by most of the corporate monopoly media. Therefore, one has to ask, are the media complicit in these crimes against humanity? And are some “politicians” and others also complicit?

“Politicians, journalists and intelligence analysts are lying to themselves. Everybody knows that Saudi Arabia and Turkey are behind the terrorists and we also know that the US is behind Saudi Arabia and Turkey.
“The US is the main architect of this terrorist undertaking which consists in sponsoring terrorists with a view to destabilizing and destroying sovereign countries in defiance of international law” Prof Michel Chossudovsky
Global Research, December 22, 2015.

I believe “international law” and the rule of law has become a farce, when “war criminals” are hailed as “leaders” and “statesmen,” and “respectable” banks “launder money,” and multi-national corporations are making bloodstained profits from all this corruption, carnage and mayhem. This has resulted in millions of refugees around the world. Yet we are told participants at Davos are “improving the state of the world.” I say tell that to the refugees that some of you helped create by bombing their countries.

“Flows of refugees across the world reached unprecedented numbers last year, having rapidly increased in both 2014 and 2015 due to prolonged crises in Syria and Iraq in the Middle East and Nigeria, South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo in Africa. More than 4.6 million refugees from Syria alone were registered by the United Nations in 2015, the majority of them in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq....” Katy Barnato, CNBC January 14, 2016.

“The Western leaders and media stay silent about the military intervention and regime change, interventions that have torn the refugees’ homelands apart and resulted in civil war, state collapse and extremely violent conditions lasting for long periods.” James Paul, September 16, 2015.

You bombed our countries and reduced them to rubble
You well dressed war criminals, created all this trouble
You killed our children with hellfire missiles
You called this “bringing democracy,” and then you smiled

You caused us to flee from the bloody wars you created
You are damned hypocrites, and now you are feted
You made massive profits from death and destruction
You made whole communities unable to function...

I believe this yearly gathering in Davos is an exhibition of greed and hypocrisy.   How can these “Davosians” be “improving the state of the world” when some of them are from countries that planned and plotted some of the “illegal” wars, and other depredations that have caused massive suffering, destruction and deaths around the planet? Therefore, one has to ask, “Has the rule of law become the rule of outlaws?”

And perhaps Al Capone was correct when he said,
“Capitalism is the legitimate racket of the ruling class” Al Capone. American Criminal
