Неприятно впечатление ми прави неграмотността, и то на "книгоиздател". Столицата на Ирак се казва БагдаД, а не БагдаТ, и винаги се е казвал така. Също така държава е АФганистан, а не Авганистан.
По темата нямам какво да добавя, освен да репостна статията. Фрустрация, незнаене на английски език или общо неудовлетворение от живота, но съм изненадан от лавината помия, която се изля - макар, че нито частичка от нея не адресира самата статия. Познатата лавина от байки, общи приказки и лични нападки. "750,000 страници" - нямало доказателства. Нямало доказателства
Някакво си сайтче, някаква си комисийка, някакво си докладче - безсилна ярост...
Syrian war crimes evidence strongest since Nuremberg trials, says prosecutor

"These are crimes the world won't forget": Stephen Rapp on Syria
https://www.abc.net.au/radio/programs/w ... a/10577142
Evidence of war crimes is often hard to find — it gets destroyed in the conflict, or no records are kept in the first place.
But war crimes prosecutor Stephen Rapp has told The World Today that the evidence of war crimes in Syria is the strongest since Nazi war crimes in World War II.
And he thinks prosecution of the highest echelons of the Syrian regime, including President Bashar al-Assad, is inevitable.
Mr Rapp said the group he chairs, Commission for International Justice and Accountability (CIJA), is working with Syrians inside the country and has been able to access more than 750,000 pages of regime documents.

Dear Bashar al-Assad Apologists: Your Hero Is a War Criminal Even If He Didn’t Gas Syrians
https://theintercept.com/2018/04/19/dea ... s-syrians/
Sorry to interrupt: I know you’re very busy right now trying to convince yourselves, and the rest of us, that your hero couldn’t possibly have used chemical weapons to kill up to 70 people in rebel-held Douma on April 7. Maybe Robert Fisk’s mysterious doctor has it right — and maybe the hundreds of survivors and eyewitnesses to the attack are all “crisis actors.”
Maybe Assad didn’t use sarin to kill around 100 people in rebel-held Khan Sheikhoun a year ago either. A joint investigation by the United Nations and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons found “unmistakable evidence” that he did. Human Rights Watch and Hans Blix also agree that Assad was probably to blame. But maybe they’re all wrong. Or, maybe they’re paid shills for the CIA.
My point is this: Who cares? Seriously, who cares?
Remember: Whether Assad used chemical weapons in Douma is irrelevant to the moral case against him. What about the rest of his crimes? Was Assad any less of a war criminal when his “indiscriminate bombardments,” according to the U.N., were destroying “homes, medical facilities, schools, water and electrical facilities, bakeries and crops,” without the aid of sarin or chlorine? When he was dropping barrel bombs (68,000 since 2012, according to one count) on defenseless civilians? Or cluster bombs? Or good ol’-fashioned shells?
Was Assad any less of a war criminal when his troops “opened fire during protests in the southern part of Syria … and killed peaceful demonstrators” at the start of the Syrian uprising in March 2011, long before any jihadists had arrived in the country to fight against his regime? Or when his soldiers delivered the brutalized corpse of 25-year-old protester Ghiyath Matar — nicknamed “Little Gandhi” for his commitment to nonviolent activism — to his pregnant wife and parents in Deraya in September 2011?
Was Assad any less of a war criminal when his barrel bombs were forcing hundreds of thousands of Syrians to flee from their homes? An October 2015 survey of Syrian refugees living in Germany found that seven in 10 of them blamed Assad for the violence in their country, compared to one in three who blamed the Islamic State.
Was Assad any less of a war criminal when he was torturing tens of thousands of Syrians in his dungeons, many of whom ended up dead or disappeared? “The mass scale of deaths of detainees suggests that the government of Syria is responsible for acts that amount to extermination as a crime against humanity,” declared Paulo Sérgio Pinheiro, chair of the U.N. Commission of Inquiry on Syria, in February 2016.
Was Assad any less of a war criminal when his security forces were literally starving the people of Madaya, an opposition-held town an hour’s drive from Damascus, in 2015 and 2016? Scores of residents died from malnutrition and starvation, according to Physicians for Human Rights; others were forced to survive on soup made from grass and rice. “Let me be clear,” declared then-U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in January 2016, referring to the situation in Madaya and other regime- and rebel-held towns, “the use of starvation as a weapon of war is a war crime.”
Was Assad any less of a war criminal when he was bombarding and besieging stateless Palestinians at the Yarmouk refugee camp, a few miles from his presidential palace, in 2012, 2013, and 2014? “The harrowing accounts of [Palestinian] families having to resort to eating cats and dogs, and civilians attacked by [Syrian army] snipers as they forage for food, have become all too familiar details of the horror story that has materialized in Yarmouk,” noted Amnesty International in March 2014.
Дълго четиво, изпъстрено с линкове и препратки към други публикации, но е топ-ноч за апологетите на режима... които нежали десетките и стотици доклади, изявления и заключения на най-различни комисии, следователи и официални лица, продължават да питат с объркани погледи "Ама как така? Къде са доказателствата? ООН не са казали..."
Казали са, господа, многократно са казали, за тези, които имат уши да чуят и мозък, за да асимилират.
