Responsible major powers are absolved. Victims have no chance. Guilt by accusation is policy. Pillay advanced her career by going along. She sold her soul in the process. She did it before. She's doing it now. It's getting to be a habit.
Al Jazeera's credibility is sorely lacking. It's a Qatar monarchy propaganda vehicle. It's no different from BBC and other scoundrel media sources.
On January 19, it headlined "UN rights chief urges Syria war crimes probe."
Since conflict erupted in 2011, Pillay waged war on Syria. She targets victims. Perpetrators are absolved.
On January 18, she addressed a closed Security Council session. She urged Member States to act. No one knows the true casualty count.
She claims 60,000 is "a conservative figure." Numbers "speak for themselves," she added. She stopped short of pointing fingers the right way.
"I have urged the Security Council to refer the situation to the International Criminal Court for investigation of war crimes and crimes against humanity on the part of all parties engaged in the conflict," she said.
It's clear which ones she means. Syrians "see the situation as the United Nations not carrying out its responsibility to protect victims," she added.- Advertisement -
She blames Assad for "massive scale" killing. She suppresses truth. In early January, she urged Western intervention.
"Where is the international community," she asked? "Why aren't (world leaders) acting to stop this slaughter?" She blames Assad for slaughtering his own people. Doing so turns truth on its head.
Earlier in January, Washington pressured dozens of countries to petition the Security Council for action. It wants Assad held responsible for Western-generated crimes.
Russia and China oppose imperial intentions. They vetoed three one-sided Security Council Resolutions. They oppose lawless Western intervention. They support Syrian sovereignty. They want Syrians alone to decide who'll govern.
Britain's UN ambassador, Lyall Grant, spoke on behalf of other nations urging Security Council action, saying:
"In the face of such a dramatic death toll and the silence of the Security Council, we felt that we must speak out on the absolute need for accountability and to send a clear message that the international community is not turning a blind eye to the atrocities being committed in Syria."
"Without accountability, there will be no sustainable peace." Achieving it's as simple as Washington calling off its dogs. Longstanding plans call for regime change. Replacing Assad with subservient pro-Western leadership is planned.
