That Bashar al Assad is free, and that he has been able to engineer his re-election to the presidency in war-torn Syria, amounts to a sad testament of the state of international justice with the United Nations(UN) Security Council(SC) as guarantor with China and Russia as super veto members.
Given the compelling evidence France and the UN has collected linking the Assad regime to using chemical weapons on Syrians, and also of gassing to death 421 children in an attack that also gassed 1,000 Syrian adults; there is no conceivable matrix that should have allowed Assad to be free, and even more, to sit at the of Syria again. No imaginable hereditary endowment could ever justify nor bestow up Assad the power to kill so many of his people and yet, walk as a free man. But China and Russia beg to differ. Four times before the SC, these two married partners - China and Russia, against the fundamental rights of men and of women and of humanity, have teamed up to veto resolutions seeking to bring Assad to justice and to provide justice to Syria's gassed children. And these two bedded fellows have been able to retort the rest of the World's efforts to establish order because they both wield super veto status at the UN. Ludicrous! These two, Russian and China , with their sorry human rights policies and history, will always stand in the way of international humanity and of the equal rights and protections of all people.
Thus, the UN, conceived out of the desire that humanity would function as a cooperation unit to guarantee the rights of all peoples and nations; must now reform. Single party and authoritarian nations must be precluded from holding super veto status.
Should the UN and the rest of the International community not be able to reform to counter Chinese and Russian unwavering stances on human rights, then our world will become a gray marble dotted by the reds of conflicts and wars, as people, having lost all faith in the international clubs of peace, battle their governments and other nations in quests to sustain and to attain basic freedoms from tyranny.
