Remember when the President of Serbia (Slobodan Milošević) was arrested and put on trial by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia for war crimes that occurred under his watch in Bosnia and Herzegovina? (See here.) So, why hasn’t a single Russian military official been charged for Putin’s inhumane actions 22 years ago: the destruction of an entire capital and the indiscriminate massacre of thousands of civilians? [Read about the 1999-2000 Battle of Grozny here (hat tip: Brian Leiter), and for the bigger picture, see here.] At the very least, why haven’t the free countries of the world created a Russian War Crimes Tribunal to put Vladimir Putin and his men on notice? To be fair, there should also be a special tribunal for U.S. war crimes, and George W. Bush should be prosecuted under international law for his illegal invasion of Iraq, but the misdeeds of Bush (going to war under false pretenses), of the Supreme Leader of Iran (Ali Khamenei), of the Chinese Communist Party chief (Xi Jinping), and of North Korea’s Dear Leader (Kim Jong-un) all pale in comparison to what Putin has done (Grozny) and is now doing (Ukraine)! #FuckPutin #FuckBush #FuckKhamenei #FuckXi
