They are Incapable of Shame Ambassador Power

Bashar al Assad, his regime and cohorts Vladimir Putin and Russian forces in Syria, are incapable of shame. Nothing will literally shame them in respect to their execution of war in Aleppo and throughout Syria, in spite of children and civilian deaths.

United States(US) Ambassador to the United Nations(UN) Samantha Power, opened a can of condemnation upon the Assad regime and his accomplices for the humanitarian crisis in Aleppo, Syria, at an emergency briefing on Aleppo before the Security Council, on Tuesday. 

As thousands of civilians remained trapped in the conflict-torn city, while many, including women and children, have been killed by Assad and Russian forces laying siege to the eastern part of the city, Ambassador Power questioned the attackers: "Are you truly incapable of shame? Is there literally nothing that can shame you? Is there no act of barbarism against civilians, no execution of a child that gets under your skin?" Apparently not. Even though there is some action to evacuate civilians from Aleppo today, the humanitarian crisis - the damage and the deaths, have already been done.

But on Tuesday, Ambassador Power chastised Assad and his cohorts for the humanitarian travesty that has unfolded in Aleppo, as she placed them on notice of the inevitable accounting of the crimes committed against humanity in the city. 

To Russia and to the Assad regime, she said: "You bear responsibility for these atrocities...denying or obfuscating the facts...will not absolve you." Ambassador Power added: "When one day there is a full accounting of the horrors committed in this assault of Aleppo - and that day will come, sooner of later - you will not be able to say you were not involved. We all know what is happening. And we all know you are involved."

Ambassador Power sadly concluded: "Aleppo will join the ranks of those events in world history that define modern evil, that stain our conscience decades later."

Yet, the executors of the Syrian war continue to commit crimes against humanity - continue to cause civilian and child deaths with an apparent impunity. The guilty feel no shame.
