FUKUS (France-UK-US), the neo-imperialist Axis, showed its true mettle in Libya where it strafed the water supply network to deprive civilians of water then bombed the electricity grid "to break their backs". War crimes? Certainly. And here they are again blaming Russia because their moderate terrorists are getting whipped in Syria.
The sheer, shitfaced insolence of representatives of the United States of America during the Obama Presidency has been well documented in this column, the latest example being provided by one Samantha Power whose country/allies then went on to bomb dozens of troops in the Syrian Arab Army fighting against Islamist terrorists who have been unleashed in Syria by western bedboys Qatar and Saudi Arabia. Enter center stage Poodle in Chief, the United Kingdom, whose po-faced representative at the United Nations accused Russia of war crimes.
War crimes? You mean fighting terrorists?
By war crimes, one supposes he meant "fighting terrorists" who have been slicing the breasts off women in the street, shooting women for wearing red jackets, raping girls before they were beheaded, raping girls after they were beheaded, impaling little boys on stakes, forcing children to watch their parents being tortured, sodomizing little boys, sodomizing teenage boys, sodomizing University students, pillaging, stealing, looting, burning property... and what did the illustrious FUKUS Axis say about that? Does the British representative at the UNO sit back and giggle as he views these scenes on his laptop?
What did the illustrious FUKUS Axis say when Israel strafed a funeral and then said "They shouldn't have been there, should they?" What did the FUKUS Axis say when Israel dropped White Phosphorous on a school and claimed "They shouldn't have been there, should they?" What did the FUKUS Axis say when Israel bombed residential homes and murdered children and then stated "They shouldn't have been there, should they?"
I will tell you what France, the UK and the US said. They said absolutely nothing, in public at least. Sure, there were mutterings in Paris and London about "something has to be done about these Israelis" but nobody dares speak out in public because Washington is controlled by the Jewish Lobby and Washington pulls the strings of Poodle in Chief and the Great Pretender to Poodle in Chief, France...which just does not have the je ne sais quoi to edge out its old foe across the Channel as chief cock...adoodledoo.
It is amazing that countries with populations numbering the tens or hundreds of millions manage to find these gray, miserable, scowling misfits, spoilsports who look like they are suffering from chronic constipation or Crohn's Disease, to represent their countries by being insulting, arrogant, insolent and hypocritical.
The utter hypocrisy is risible
In face the utter hypocrisy of these three nations is risible. Remember when the USA dropped a bunker busting bomb on an underground refuge full of civilians in Baghdad? What did the United Kingdom and France say to that? Remember when the USA strafed kids with Napalm in Vietnam? What did the UK and France say to that? Remember when the USA committed massacres in Vietnam? What did the UK and France say to that?
Remember when the USA and UK, the dynamic duo in crime, invaded Iraq outside the auspices on the UN Security Council, so without a mandate in international law? Remember when they destroyed civilian structures with military hardware? Remember when they used illegal poisonous substances murdering or maiming up to a million kids? Remember when they strafed fields of cereals to deprive the civilian population of food? Did the UK claim that was a war crime? Remember when they sided with Albanian-speaking terrorists (Ushtria Çlirimtare ë Kosovës) and bombed Serbia?
Remember when the FUKUS Axis invaded Libya without any legal pretext? Remember when aircraft from the FUKUS Axis, including apparently the RAF, spent one hour this month using 4 aircraft in a persistent attack against the Syrian Arab Army and only stopped because Russia told them to? Did the UK classify this as a war crime? What did the UK say when the USA precision-murdered patients in a hospital in Afghanistan?
The FUKUS Axis entered the Libyan war carrying out military action without the convening of the UNSC Military Council, under Resolutions 1970 and 1973 (2011). Under the UN Charter, Chapter VII, Article 46: "Plans for the application of armed force shall be made by the Security Council with the assistance of the Military Staff Committee". Such committee was never convened.What did the FUKUS Axis have to say to this infraction? Nothing.
What did the FUKUS Axis have to say when the same countries breached UNSC Resolution 2132 (XX) of December 21, 1965, on intervention in domestic affairs of a sovereign state in Iraq? In Libya? In Syria?
Did the UK and USA complain of war crimes when they broke Article 3 of the Statute of The Hague International Penal Court which states clearly that one criterion for indictment for war crimes is: "Attack or bombardment, by whatever means, against undefended cities, towns, villages, buildings or houses" or "Massive destruction of cities, towns or villages or destruction not justified by military necessity" applied to Iraq and Libya?
Was the attack on the Water Supply network and the attack on the factory making the pipes in al-Brega a military necessity? What do the UK and USA have to say to that? Was the murder of Gaddafi's grandchildren a "military necessity"? What do the USA and UK have to say to that?
Under the British Home Office's own list of proscribed terrorist group is LIFG, which the British government sided with in Libya. Isn't that contradictory? Or does the United Kingdom now openly side with terrorists? What was it the Home Office said about this group? H yes I remember: "The LIFG seeks to replace the current Libyan regime with a hard-line Islamic state. The group is also part of the wider global Islamist extremist movement, as inspired by Al Qa'ida. The group has mounted several operations inside Libya, including a 1996 attempt to assassinate Mu'ammar Qadhafi". So the UK sided with them.
What did the UK say about its own breach of the Resolutions it used to enter the Libyan conflict and render the country with the highest Human Development Index to the status of a failed state crawling with terrorists? See, UNSC Resolution 1973 (2011), in its Chapter on Protection of Civilians, in paragraph 4. states:
"4. Authorizes Member States that have notified the Secretary-General, acting nationally or through regional organizations or arrangements, and acting in cooperation with the Secretary-General, to take all necessary measures, notwithstanding paragraph 9 of resolution 1970 (2011), to protect civilians and civilian populated areas under threat of attack in the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, including Benghazi, while excluding a foreign occupation force of any form on any part of Libyan territory, and requests the Member States concerned to inform the Secretary-General immediately of the measures they take pursuant to the authorization conferred by this paragraph which shall be immediately reported to the Security Council;
And speaking of boots on the ground: UNSC Resolution 1970 (2011) Paragraph 16:
"16. Deplores the continuing flows of mercenaries into the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya and calls upon all Member States to comply strictly with their obligations under paragraph 9 of resolution 1970 (2011) to prevent the provision of armed mercenary personnel to the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya;".
It would also be interesting to hear what the representatives of the USA, France and UK have to say about this short list of sample crimes they committed in Libya:

And so, Russia is conducting a successful counter-terrorist operation in Syria. The Syrian war exists only because the west is supporting terrorist groups fighting against the legitimate President of Syria under international law. The west is becoming hysterical because Russian strategy, operations and diplomacy are thwarting their evil schemes at each and every turn.
The war criminals are the UK, USA and France, the barbarism is and has been practiced by those guilty of the world's only twin atomic terrorist strike and their allies.

Ik kwam zojuist mijn oude vriend, de bestseller-auteur en mainstream-opiniemaker Geert Mak in de regen op straat tegen. Na elkaar te hebben begroet, vertelde Geert mij dat hij van oordeel is dat Europa zo snel mogelijk met Rusland om de tafel moet gaan zitten, om de opgelopen spanningen te deëscaleren. De VS heeft heel andere belangen dan 'wij,' aldus Mak, die benadrukte dat de macht van 'onze' Atlantische bondgenoot ingrijpend aan het afnemen is. Kortom, ik hoorde wat ikzelf al enige jaren op mijn weblog schrijf. Opvallend hoe een Nederlandse opiniemaker binnen zo'n betrekkelijk korte tijd zo wezenlijk van oordeel kan veranderen. Immers, Mak’s gevaarlijke anti-Rusland hetze was een treffend voorbeeld van zijn opportunisme. Mei 2014 beweerde op de Hilversumse televisie de zogeheten ‘chroniqueur van Amsterdam, Nederland, Europa en de VS,’ dat er sprake was van een 'Russische gevaar,’ aangezien ‘meneer Poetin’ aan ‘landjepik’ deed en dat de Russische president d…
A sign marks the entrance to White Earth Indian Reservation in Mahnomen County, Minn. (J. Stephen Conn / CC 2.0)
WHITE EARTH RESERVATION, Minn.—Candice (not her real name) awoke with a start. Someone was pulling down her sweatpants. It was a male friend.
“Stop!” she shouted.
He kept groping her. She kicked him and he fell off the bed. She dashed out of the bedroom, tripping and tumbling down the stairs. Gripped with fear, she heard his footsteps behind her in the dark and forced herself to stand upright as she staggered out to the porch.
Candice was still intoxicated. She got into her car and drove into a ditch. A white police officer pulled up. She struggled to hold back tears as she told him about the attempted rape.
All the officer saw was a drunk and disorderly Native American woman. He dismissed Candice’s report of sexual assault as a lie she had made up to avoid getting a DUI. He did not take her to the hospital for a forensic exam. The sexual assault was not recorded in his pol…
