(e) Complicity in genocide."

Article 4 states:

"Persons committing genocide or any of the other acts enumerated in Article 3 shall be punished, whether they are constitutionally responsible rulers, public officials or private individuals."

"Direct and public" incitement to commit Genocide is also prohibited under the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court's (ICC) Article 25(3)(e). It holds everyone "directly and publicly (involved in) incit(ing) others to commit genocide" culpable. 

Article 3(e) of the Statute of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and Article 3(c) of the Statute of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) also prohibit "direct and public" incitement to commit genocide.

Incitement (as opposed to legitimate free expression) is also forbidden by many other international human rights treaties.

America, Britain and France, NATO's three main belligerents, are signatories to numerous relevant treaties, including the Genocide Convention. 

Under the Constitution's Supremacy Clause (Article 6, clause 2), all US Treaties and Federal Statutes are "the supreme Law of the Land."

The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) defined propaganda and other forms incitement to commit genocidal mass killing as follows:

"Directly provoking the perpetrator(s) to commit genocide, whether through speeches, shouting or threats uttered in public places or at public gatherings, or through the sale or dissemination, offer for sale or display of written material or printed matter in public places or at public gatherings, or through the public display of placards or posters or through any other means of audiovisual communication."

Included are official NATO, Pentagon and/or political written or verbal communications, justifying naked aggression, mischaracterized as humanitarian intervention responsibility to protect. 

Also included are supportive PR and/or media propaganda, disinformation, and or other forms of deceptions.

During Nuremberg Tribunal proceedings, German newspaper editor Julius Streicher was the first person prosecuted for incitement to commit genocide for publishing anti-Semitic diatribes.

However, international law hadn't yet criminalized incitement at the time, so he was tried for crimes against humanity.

Since March 19, NATO belligerents and their rebel gangs committed daily crimes of war and against humanity. On a massive scale, it's Genocide!
