“War Criminal” Sentenced: Other War Criminals Still Free and in Positions of Power

“A UN war crimes court convicted former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic of genocide and nine other charges Thursday for orchestrating a campaign of terror that left 100,000 people dead during the 1992-1995 war in Bosnia, the worst carnage in Europe since World War II....”
“Although 20 years in coming, the trial is hugely significant for the development of international law. Karadzic's conviction will likely strengthen international jurisprudence on the criminal responsibility of political leaders for atrocities committed by forces under their control....”
“The verdict and sentence were met with expressions of relief and satisfaction from Bosnian Muslims and anger by Serb nationalists, thousands of whom took to the streets of the Serbian capital, Belgrade, to protest....”

 There are other powerful war criminals running free today and there is no attempt to arrest them. Has the system failed, or has it become so corrupt that there are those in positions of power that are untouchable? Therefore, the question must be asked: “Will Nobody Arrest the War Criminals? Or Are Gangsters in Control?”

Based on multiple sources of evidence, one could come to the conclusion that gangsters are in control. You can see them preening and posturing on the world stage, impeccably dressed, feted and acclaimed by some of their partners in crime, and lauded as “statesmen” and as “eminent persons.” They give speeches at thousands of dollars a speech to some of those who have profited from their decisions. Some of them even write books on their roles in corrupting the world, only they don’t use the word corrupting. They use words like “bringing democracy” and “responsibility to protect.” I believe it is the people everywhere who need protection from these international gangsters who start wars based on lies and cause death and destruction world wide. These are the “respectable” war criminals too big to jail, too big too prosecute, and too powerful to arrest because they run and control the system called “democracy.” They could be called, “The International Community of Gangsters.”

This “respectable” gangsterism has contaminated the world of today. Weapons are sold to despots and dictators. These weapons are used on civilian populations. Governments in concert with dictators are partners in crimes against humanity. Multi-national corporations are profiting from all this bloodshed and the financiers of death and destruction also profit from all this bloody carnage. Countries are destroyed and reduced to smoking rubble and the perpetrators pretend they are practitioners of the “rule of law.”
Meanwhile the propagandized corporate monopoly media covers up the enormity of their crimes, and they are also complicit by their silence. I believe what we are seeing is “The Embodiment of Evil.”

This evil has no conscience, no morals, no principles and no ethics. The slaughtered, maimed and contaminated children of Iraq, Gaza, Libya, Syria, Yemen and many other countries cry out for justice, as do their parents and the dead sacrificed on the altars of maniacal militarism. Their cries go unheeded by those in power, and this hellish slaughter by hypocrites from hell continues. There is an urgent need for present day Nuremberg Trials.

“The Nuremberg trials were a series of trials held between 1945 and 1949 in which the Allies prosecuted German military leaders, political officials, industrialists, and financiers for crimes they had committed during World War II.”

The wars conducted today by war criminals in positions of power will go on and on, unless these evil beings are brought to justice for their planned illegal invasions and regime-change agendas.

“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”  - Dietrich Bonhoeffer

They are literally getting away with “legalized” murder. They are the war criminals of the 21st century who continue to perpetrate war crimes and they are FREE!

“Most war crimes fall into one of three categories: crimes against peace, crimes against humanity, and traditional war crimes. Crimes against peace include the planning, commencement, and waging of aggressive war, or war in violation of international agreements. Aggressive war is broadly defined to include any hostile military act that disregards the territorial boundaries of another country, disrespects the political independence of another regime, or otherwise interferes with the sovereignty of an internationally recognized state....”

“A strange aspect of these conflicts is that Western leaders have never had to pay any political price for their role in initiating them or pursuing policies that effectively stoke the violence. Isis is a growing power in Libya, something that would not have happened had David Cameron and Nicolas Sarkozy not helped destroy the Libyan state by overthrowing Gaddafi in 2011. Al-Qaeda is expanding in Yemen, where Western leaders have given a free pass to Saudi Arabia to launch a bombing campaign that has wrecked the country.” Patrick Cockburn, March 20,2016.
