Principles for the protection and promotion of human rights
 by Gilbert & Sullivan Thu May 21, 2009 20:30

The Bush, Blair, Obama, Ahern, Cowan and Murphy Chorus:

"Here's a first-rate opportunity to get married with impunity" (repeated endlessly and shamelessly).

The International Law Chorus:

"Considering that the duty of every State under international law to respect and to secure respect for human rights requires that effective measures should be taken to combat impunity, ..." (From document titled "Updated Set of principles for the protection and promotion of human rights through action to combat impunity" at )

Also from the document at the above location:

"Convinced, therefore, that national and international measures must be taken for that purpose with a view to securing jointly, in the interests of the victims of violations, observance of the right to know and, by implication, the right to the truth, the right to justice and the right to reparation, without which there can be no effective remedy against the pernicious effects of impunity, ..."

From Wikipedia (at ):

"Impunity is especially common in countries that lack a tradition of the rule of law, suffer from corruption or that have entrenched systems of patronage, or where the judiciary is weak or members of the security forces are protected by special jurisdictions or immunities."

From the Guardian Newspaper (at ):

"The United Nations secretary general, Kofi Annan, declared explicitly for the first time last night that the US-led war on Iraq was illegal."

So why is it that none of the people responsible for starting and sustaining this ILLEGAL war -- now into its 7th year, and which has left hundreds of thousands dead and injured -- have not been charged with any crime whatsoever, so far?

The United Nations defines impunity as:

"the impossibility, de jure or de facto, of bringing the perpetrators of violations to account (link to recent "Child Abuse Reports" in the Republic of Ireland) – whether in criminal, civil, administrative or disciplinary proceedings – since they are not subject to any inquiry that might lead to their being accused, arrested, tried and, if found guilty, sentenced to appropriate penalties, and to making reparations to their victims."

People of The World's Chorus (repeated until human rights law is responsibly abided by):

"Shame on the United States of America, Shame on the United Kingdom, Shame on the Republic of Ireland;
And Thanks to all of the Protesters who keep on SHOWING THEM UP."

The REAL criminals are still out there, and they are still committing MAJOR crime with impunity: and, most worrying of all, there is still nobody (anywhere in the world it seems) who can challenge them effectively through the courts of law? -- in spite of the mountains of human rights law now in existence, but which is not being enforced.

The lunatics really have taken control of the asylum it appears.
