Is the dismantling and the dilution of chemical weapons enough to render justice to the unfortunate 421 children who were gassed by Assad's Syrian army? How is justice best served for crimes against humanity?
With matters the way they are, it is possible that no one might be found accountable or liable for the deaths of the 421 innocent Syrian lives who died in a vicious chemical gas attack in Syria.
Yesterday, United Nations Human Rights Chief, Navi Pillay, became the highest ranking commissioner at the global body to name President Bashar al Assad and his government of authorizing war crimes. The UN commissioner said there was "massive evidence" that serious crimes, war crimes and crimes against humanity were committed.
Ms. Pillay has previous asked the UN Security Council to refer Syria to the International Criminal Court(ICC). But it might never occur for China and Russia hold veto power on the Security Council and are more than likely to exercise their veto power to assist Assad. But will Russia and China then answer the question as to who will render justice for the gassed 421 children? No, China and Russia will not. Human rights issues are not popular in China or Russia, thus they will not feel any empathy for the lost lasses and lads of Syria.
