International Lawlessness

The West bleats on about Russia’s actions in Ukraine being in breach of ”International Law”. This is disingenuous to say the least; in fact it is yet another example of staggering hypocrisy. The concept of International Law, if such a thing exists at all, is a nebulous one, ”a custom More honor’d in the breach than the observance” to use Shakespeare’s phrase. And of course, NATO and the West are themselves the very worst offenders. I’ll just mention the Iraq War and the rape of Libya. Those responsible, the Bushes, Blairs and Camerons of this world should certainly be behind bars under ‘International Law” , but will it happen ?…..(Don’t hold your breath)

”International law can be simply ignored. If there is no political will by the major powers to enforce it, international law is just an empty shell.
Appeals to morality and law may resonate with the majority of the world’s people but not to those who hold power” –  Mohammed Omer (”Shell-Socked”)
