U.N.: U.S. Broke International Law by Eliminating Soleimani


https://www.breitbart.com/
By John Hayward
January 3, 2020


Article:


Agnes Callamard, the U.N. special rapporteur on extrajudicial killing, said on Thursday night that the U.S. drone strike that killed Iranian terrorist mastermind Gen. Qasem Soleimani was a violation of international law.

The U.N. has been oddly quiet about Soleimani's violations of international law, including activities that indisputably violated U.N. sanctions.

"The targeted killings of Qasem Soleiman and Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis are most likely unlawful and violate international human rights law: Outside the context of active hostilities, the use of drones or other means for targeted killing is almost never likely to be legal," Callamard wrote on Twitter.

She proceeded to lay out an impossibly stringent standard for preventive action that becomes grotesquely amusing when measured against Soleimani's malign activities, not least his involvement in an undisputed act of war against the United States, the attack on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad last week:

To be justified under international human rights law, intentionally lethal or potentially lethal force can only be used where strictly necessary to protect against an imminent threat to life.

In other words, whoever targeted these two men would need to demonstrate that the persons targeted constitute(d) an imminent threat to others. An individual's past involvement in "terrorist" attacks is not sufficient to make his targeting for killing lawful.

Furthermore, drone killing of anyone other than the target (family members or others in the vicinity, for example) would be an arbitrary deprivation of life under human rights law and could result in State responsibility and individual criminal liability.

The use of drones on the territory of other States has also been justified on the basis of self-defense. Under customary international law States can take military action if the threatened attack is imminent, no other means would deflect it, and the action is proportionate.

The test for so-called anticipatory self-defense is very narrow: it must be a necessity that is "instant, overwhelming, and leaving no choice of means, and no moment of deliberation". This test is unlikely to be met in these particular cases.



Soleimani was not much concerned about killing people other than his targets – his operations routinely included the indiscriminate murder of civilians, from Syria to the streets of Baghdad.

The UN, an international body populated by criminals and human rights violators, are going to pass judgment on the US while remaining mum on the true crimes of the douche nozzle just eliminated?

I am fluent in French. "Rapporteur" translated into American English is "egghead".

Like when 0bama executed Anwar al-Awlaki, his 16 year-old son, and the boy's 17 year-old cousin without due process? Twitter was around back then. Where were the UN resolutions and snarky tweets?

They're treating Salami like a freaking martyr. I don't know who is going to pop out from behind the curtain: Rod Serling or Allen Funt?

This is UN calling for essentially gun-free countries.

Of course, criminal countries can then attack said gun-free countries. But UN isn’t concerned about that.

Guess what U.N.? F Q.

Hey UN, got a message for you...

We didn't elect you.

We didn't swear fealty to you.

Most of you hate us, anyway.

Since we didn't elect you, we aren't bound by any of your 'make-'em-up-as-you-go' :bs: international laws.

Plus, we ain't stoopid, and we see that some of the worst offenders of laws and morality, are on those very committees that 'supposedly' are in place to prevent the very things that they commit. :nuts:

When you have the U.N. and the Demotards screaming their heads off about the same thing you know you've done something very great. Thank you President Trump!

Maybe the UN could take their misgivings to Obama's DHS Secretary:

Obama DHS Secretary: Trump Did Not Need Congressional Approval To Kill Soleimani


“the president, under his Constitutional authority as commander-in-chief, had ample domestic legal authority to take him out without additional Congressional authorization”
