The endless US absurdities… It’s time for the world to punish Uncle Sam!
By: Contribution to Syrializm
Since the path reached a dead end between the West, led by the United States, and Russia, which put Moscow in front of the only option to resort to military action in Ukraine, which was supposed to be quick, as days passed since February 24, 2022, Russia found itself facing the West in Ukraine, not just neo-Nazi groups and a few disciples of the Kiev mafia regime.
It was clear from the very beginning of the operations that Russia is confronting NATO forces indirectly, as the US and NATO kept on providing Kiev with weapons and volunteers, harnessing the West’s media machine and all social media and Western public opinion, and even imposing various types of embargoes and sanctions until Russia became the most punished and sanctioned country since the Human race appeared on the surface of the earth!
It’s customary for the United States, however, to use what are known as international organizations and other international institutions as tools of political, economic, and social pressure against any country that says (NO) to Washington.
The irony here is that the United States itself may not be a member of, recognize, or sign the pacts of some of those international organizations, which are customarily used as pressure tools.
Naturally, since the beginning of the Western-American sanctions train on Russia, the comedy has begun.
As the search for everything that could harm Russia has begun, it could hurt or perhaps destroy its economy, its social image, and even in arts and sports industries.
Consequently, Russia has been banned from almost all international activities in all fields.
On the 17th of March, the so-called International Criminal Court issued a precedent by issuing an arrest warrant against Russian President Vladimir Putin (the President of Russia, one of the nuclear powers, and a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council),
The arrest warrant was based on accusations of child abuse and kidnapping from Ukraine.
We need to go back and repeat that the International Criminal Court has issued an arrest warrant against the head of a major country.
Here we are not talking, and with all due respect, of course, about Sudan, Myanmar, or a third world country that usually is the target.
Before looking into this farcical affair, we must give a glimpse into this international organization.
The International Criminal Court is an organization established in 2002 to be a court capable of trying individuals accused of crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, crimes of aggression, and terrorism.
The ICC works to complement the existing judicial apparatus, as it cannot carry out its judicial role unless… mark this line, please… Unless the national courts express their desire or are unable to investigate or prosecute these cases, they represent the last resort.
Primary responsibility rests with the states themselves, and the court’s ability is limited to crimes committed after July 1, 2002, the date of its creation, when the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court entered into force.
The ICC seeks to put an end to the impunity of those wanted—and thus issuing arrest warrants to bring anyone to ((justice)) for the crime of his, her, or their involvement in crimes.
The International Criminal Court is the first international judicial body with a global mandate and an indefinite term to try war criminals and perpetrators of atrocities against humanity, crimes against humanity, and human genocide, and the Dutch city of The Hague was chosen to be the headquarters of this organization.
We won’t enter into the talk of colonialism and the crimes of the colonial West and the Netherlands itself against humanity… We’ll not follow this boring method, but we’ll mention that this court emanating from the Rome Convention isn’t recognized by several countries, led by the United States itself, in addition to China, India, Russia, Israel, and even other countries such as Libya, Iraq, and Qatar that haven’t yet ratified the agreement.
Thus, in the absence of American and Russian recognition of the International Criminal Court, the court and the arrest warrant it issued against the Russian president become illogical and irrelevant, and this is a purely legal conclusion that has nothing to do with politics.
Before the United States sets out to hold Russia and its president accountable for hypothetical crimes, that court and those responsible for it must hold the United States accountable for its actual and documented crimes, which crossed the seas and oceans, and most of them, if not all, were documented in audio and video, and sometimes even with the confessions of the perpetrators.
The charge that the International Criminal Court issued the arrest warrant against the Russian president was based on accusations related to the involvement of the Russian president (himself), and here we are speaking in a judicial legal language similar to that of a defense lawyer before court, so to speak, related to accusations that the Russian president himself, in his legal capacity as the head of an executive power in an internationally recognized state, carried out abuse actions against Ukrainian children, which is absolutely untrue, and hasn’t existed for this very criminal characterization.
On the other hand, why didn’t we see the court issue an arrest warrant, for example, against Harry, the son of the King of Britain, when he went out to write and say in his book with all his brazenness to confess and say that he killed civilians in Afghanistan while serving in the British army?
The United States is followed by the West, which uses international organizations to impose what it wants.
They, in the case of the International Criminal Court, make it look for fabricated excuses and fabricate Hollywood stories so that the court builds its cases to pursue countries and personalities that Washington considers “rogue” countries and personnel.
The court has investigated crimes committed by the United States in countries such as Afghanistan, for example, as Washington has imposed sanctions on the court’s employees and is pressing for these case files to be closed and to stop searching for them.
In the second decade of the twentieth century, the ICC opened an official investigation into war crimes committed by the United States and its allies in Afghanistan.
The response of the United States was, quite simply, to impose sanctions against the ICC’s prosecutor and some of its staff, and the case was closed.
Of course, one of the most important tools used by these organizations has to do with the nationalities of their heads or directors and how those individuals get to that position.
For example, when the ICC investigated the crimes of the United States, the court’s public prosecutor was from a third-world country; on the other hand, when the ICC issued the arrest warrant against the Russian president, the court’s public prosecutor was from a nationality that was part of the Anglo-Saxon atmosphere.
In 2017, the ICC attempted to collate the scattered data on the crimes of coalition soldiers in Afghanistan.
Former ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda has asked the judges to grant permission to investigate alleged war crimes committed by the US, NATO, CIA, and Afghan security forces, as well as crimes against humanity by the Taliban.
The ICC supported this request for authorization, prompting the US to immediately criticize the court, with then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo describing the court as “an untrustworthy political institution masquerading as a legal entity”.
In 2019, the United States imposed visa restrictions against individuals linked to the International Criminal Court’s investigations into US military crimes.
In 2022, the United States passed special legislation to protect US military personnel, which stipulates that no American citizen or ally can be arrested based on a warrant issued by the International Criminal Court, and the Act also allows Washington the possibility of military intervention in the event that American military personnel, officials, or politicians were arrested.
The United States has informally called this legislation the “Hague Invasion Act”.
In the Russian case, the Russian Constitution states that national rather than international legislation has priority in legislation.
Moscow doesn’t implement the decisions of the International Criminal Court, the European Court of Human Rights, and other politicized international institutions as Pompeo described.
In conclusion, we now have a long list of names of European and American political and military figures who committed real crimes against humanity, most of which are documented and even confessed.
These crimes were real, not based on hypotheses or Star Wars fantasy stories.
Those western criminals are no less heinous than those who were tried in Nuremberg after World War II.
Those criminals deserve to face real justice, and to be punished with the most severe sentence for their heinous crimes against humanity for decades past and decades to come, as long as the current world order is led by Uncle Sam and his western midgets.
