GUEST BLOG: Lois Griffiths – DESPICABLE WAR CRIMES

Just look at that photo.

Disgusting isn’t it. Revolting!

 The attacks on civilians continue, with a total desregard of human life. Men,women , childen killed.  Whole neighboroods reduced to rubble. 

What kind of a monster would wage war on people just trying to get on with their lives. 

Fathers, mothers, grandmothers, children, babies..

Where is humanity?

We know who did this..a smug contemptable,  dispicable villain. Another Hitler. Another Stalin.

This time the world must stand up to the new Hitler .

He is a War Criminal! 

He must be put on trial by the ICC. His regime must be so destroyed that it can never ever repeat such horrors.

We must..

Umm..excuse me, what did you say..wrong photo? Not Ukraine?

Oh hell!!.

Sorry, my mistake. 

Oh dear!

This is actually a photo from Gaza during the 2014 bombing.

But anyway,  this is different. Very different. 

Don’t forget! Ukrainians are Europeans. They are civilized.  They look like us!

As for the people of Gaza, they are all terrorists anyway.  

All of them: grandmother terrorists, little brother terrorists, baby sister terrrrists.

They got what they deserved.

As Noam Chomsky has pointed out: “It they do it to us, it’s a war crime. If we do it to them, it isn’t.”

Our side, the good guys: the US, Israelis, Saudis,  sometimes just have to take a stong stand: on behalf of a rules-based international order, for democracy.
