Mankind is indeed indebted to the President of The Plurinational State of Bolivia and President Josà - Mujica of Uruguay for their wonderful addresses to the 68th United Nations General Assembly. They both spoke of crimes against humanity, and President Morales listed in some detail Crimes Against Humanity and Peace by the United States of America.

However without the menacing adjective "Prosecutable' before the various "US Crimes Against Humanity and US Crimes Against Peace" cited, this statement of obvious fact rang in the air more as a complaint than the warning it could have been to a General Assembly  made up preponderantly of delegates in their addresses kowtowing to those that "falsely consider themselves Masters of the World"

Secondly, with the reader's permission, since our truly esteemed and recognized defender of oppressed and militarily attacked defenseless peoples everywhere, President Morales, called attention to US dominated predatory transnational corporations and numerable invasions of armies of Americans and other wide illegal and terrifyingly deadly use of US military around the world, the President would have been surely justified to lay these crimes against humanity and crimes against peace to all US citizens involved and not only their reelected government and President Obama.

This is the message Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. cried out in his sermon "Beyond Vietnam - a Time to Break Silence," as he preached to and held his  America and fellow Americans responsible for "atrocity wars and covert violence on three continents meant to maintain unjust predatory investments."
King had included himself in this responsibility, and had anguished over his own years of what he called a silence of betrayal.

He did so after dismissing his government as "the greatest purveyor of violence in the world" ("purveyor' of violence, not its cause). King addressed not a single word in the sermon to government, which one otherwise hears blamed continually as if all the rest of the United States of America were somehow innocent: innocent,  ignorant young men pulling the triggers; innocent collaborating clergy who bless them shipping out and often at burial after dying in "just wars'; why-me-worry, homicidal in dishonesty media personalities, who convince soldiers and the rest of their innocent? audience that the atrocities are necessary; the honored and elite bankers, who irreproachably put aside their humanity in arranging indescribably horrific bloodshed for profit; the innocently self-preoccupied or self-deceived or disinterested public, which cheers on, supports or acquiesces to genocide after genocide; the pathetic politicians serving for money and power and doomed to eventual condemnation; and especially the most learned and informed members of the academic community, who dedicate themselves to exposing the crimes against humanity of their fellow countrymen, but not as prosecutable crimes but as remediable mistaken or faulty foreign policy.

President Obama, whom President Morales pointed to as guilty, has not himself killed anyone by his own hands, though he gave the criminal orders to do so. Millions of hands of US citizens were needed to manage the dispatching and maiming of millions of their fellow human beings - all the way up and down the ladder of responsibility, the bottom rung of which is those US bankers President Evo did rightly accuse of inhumanity.

King explained in blistering accusation that Americans of the United States of America were capable of making the atrocity wars for money unacceptable and inoperable through non-participation, non-support, non-acquiescence and conscientious objection. And he quoted the Italian poet Dante, that the hottest fires in Hell are reserved for those who in times of moral crisis, maintain neutrality.

Lastly, all the insincere platitudes about how the UN is going to help bring about social progress, even while the United States and other neo-colonial powers continue to deny the very right to life to the poor in nations former outright colonized and occupied and still vulnerable to plunder, is in direct refutation of what King described as logically impossible.

If the people of Planet Earth want a better world, they cannot expect an organization created by the colonial powers, which in 1945 still held nearly the entire non-white population of the world in bondage. For in neo-colonialist form, a majority of Mankind is still in bondage, and the UN was in a business related way created by the Masters of the World to serve the status quo.

Witness this week's example. The UN military force in Somalia, having saved a US EU supported hated warlord government through mayhem and the murder of thousands of Somali, has produced the not unexpected blowback of terror in a Nairobi shopping mall.

This is just one of a long list of UN inhuman travesties to protect neo-colonial interests, so well described in the General Assembly by the Chairman of the African Union, and hero of the liberation and building of his country, slain by the UN so soon after his address.

One of the first of these UN sponsored actions of a genocidal nature had been the ordering, after the US had already begun, what would be the bombing to death of two million Koreans in their own beloved land, which Koreans had already reunited what the US had criminally torn into two after invading it after World War Two, a Korea the US  had for forty years recognized as Imperial Japanese territory (in exchange for Japanese respecting  America's claim that the Philippines was its own insular territory.), overthrowing a recently constituted all-Korea democratic government in the name of a US military government in the South that would install what would prove to be a US backed murderous dictatorship that would take the lives of nearly 200,000 deputies, communists, socialists, unionists, farmer organizers (often with their wives and children) that protested the division of their country, ten of thousands of which as much as two years before Koreans of the North swept it away in five practically uncontested weeks. [see the Wikipedia articles: Korean War and The Korean Truth and Reconciliation Commission Report.]  The UN flag was painted on the US warplanes that bombed the entire peninsula flat twice over.

The pretext heard and sufficiently accepted in the case of the UN invasion of Somalia had to do with the very al Qaeda that the US had initially funded and earlier invited into the CIA controlled part of Afghanistan. The pretext for the UN invasion of Korea was that the Northern part created by the US had attacked the Southern part also created by the United States five years earlier without asking a single Korean. The Somalis weren't asked either. It was a white colonial power decision in both cases.

We cringe as the poor simpleton appearing UN stooge for US and EU military action and criminal and life costing sanctions is addressed as "His Excellency Secretary General" as he piously mouths the lies that justify and enable the CIA led and arranged slaughter of Syrians just as he repeated the Western media provided inventions of mass demonstration against the UN Quality of Life Indexed exceptionally fine government of Libya two years ago and continues to avoid mention of the truly incredibly massive in number desperate pro-Libyan government demonstrations as UN designated US, UK and French warplanes destroyed the Libyan government. As this candidate for prosecution under the Nuremberg Principles of the UN Charter doggedly repeats the now two year old charge that President Assad is "killing his own people," the phrase he used to justify the murder of revolutionary leader Mummar Gadaffi, his children and grandchildren, dutifully turns his head not to hear the constant treats of a US president to nuclear attack Iran, which in its history has never attacked another nation. 

At writing, we can still look forward to the addresses of Presidents Rafael Correa of Ecuador, Nicolà -s Maduro of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Raà -l Castro of Cuba and Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua.
