UN found murder of Iranian general Suleymani illegal

43

Morgan Ortagus, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of State, sharply criticized the United Nations, which in its report recognized the killing of US Iranian General Kassem Suleimani as an unlawful act. It is about the elimination by the US military of the Al-Quds forces commander under the IRGC, which occurred on January 3 at Baghdad International Airport.


It is reported by Al Jazeera.

A spokeswoman for the US State Department attacked the UN on Wednesday with sharp criticism:

A special kind of intellectual dishonesty is required in order to publish a report condemning the US, acting in self-defense, and at the same time, with the whitening of the odious past of General Suleimani, one of the deadliest terrorists in the world.

Ortagus called the UN report biased and detrimental to human rights. She stated that the actions of the United Nations are tantamount to issuing licenses to terrorists. The spokeswoman added that the United States did the right thing to resign from the UN Human Rights Council.

Earlier, UN Special Rapporteur on Extrajudicial Executions, Agnes Kallamard, described the killing of Kassem Suleimani as illegal and violating the Charter of this international organization and international law. In her report, it was said that the actions of the Iranian general did not pose a direct threat to people's lives, therefore, the decision of the United States to eliminate it was illegal.

The murder committed by the United States in another country and recognized by the UN as illegal ... I wonder how many countries will now decide to announce the expulsion of American diplomats?

      Apparently yes. According to Hussein and Gaddafi, nothing like this was heard. Know, there was a mustache of norms. From their point of view

        Saddam Hussein was “as if” judged. But Gaddafi "as it were" is not the Americans, but the democratic representatives of the Libyan people during the so-called "revolution".
        Those. both managed to remove with the wrong hands.

          Ortagus called the UN report biased and prejudicial to human rights. She stated that United Nations actions were tantamount to issuing licenses to terrorists. A spokeswoman added that The United States did the right thing to quit the UN Human Rights Council.

          So, since you left the Council, why raise it, champions of all kinds of convenient rights ?!

      No, there’s a problem about licenses.

      Without a license, you can only hunt America, but not others; Again, the United States has been put on a par with mortals, which is a shame. laughing Yes, say so

      I get the idea that intelligence is not acceptable for them either. Now, if as if their lack of intellect was absent, then it is still bearable. wink

        It’s not at all clear what the US representative took care of so much if her country had previously wiped her feet about the UN and spat on this organization from a large bell tower when it was necessary to invade a particular country.

    Oh, the Yankees don't give a damn about it.
    At one time there was a "non-vowed agreement" (WWII) not to touch senior military personnel (not to hunt specifically), as the Americans launched a special operation to destroy the Japanese general. Type accidentally happened.

    Who is singing about intellectual dishonesty? For such an event, the Americans did not recall the definition that is almost always used in international relations. What, what, and shamelessness, cynicism, aggressiveness they have in the first place. The UN has recognized the killing illegal, but the Americans do not care about it. They even managed to blame the UN.

    Not at all.
    However, since the murder is unlawful (although, as a murder can generally be legal), it is necessary to conduct an international investigation, and then the perpetrators to trial.
    I doubt the similar investigation.

    the laughter of this stunned UN desk; when Israel also destroyed the Lebanese general staff, and now Iranian and Syrian; the next we are the Chinese and the Indians, ears clap? hence the Russian generals will soon be kirdyk; but if the bandit of the Israeli air force Norkin, the Iranians catch and eliminate, then you can do without any UN, but for now, rudeness is booming

    New fable. How bunnies and squirrels of the wolf were judged. Until American generals and colonels of the CIA / NSA start joking in the outhouse, at least bash on a bash / eye for an eye, such American "special operations" will only whet the appetites of lawless people from the United States. Permissiveness is a dangerous thing.

    Apparently yes.

    Have Serbian leaders been killed right in court without a sentence, also by law? And the direct aggression and “democratic bombing” of sovereign countries and the assassination of their leadership, not to mention secret and not very jail prisons, doesn’t even smell like laws or the UN, just like the money of the most “peace-loving and democratic” country in a world where "Nuremberg 2" hasn’t cried for a long time, but weeps hysterically .. how much evil and blood they shed, they committed crimes against humanity, so the Germans are just plain-minded children compared to them.

    When Americans need it, they do not have the status of an international airport, not really an official invitation from the authorities. Moreover, most of all in the world, they teach everyone to observe rights and laws

    For everyone who sighs about the UN: “The UN Commission for the Investigation of Crimes Committed in Syria presented a report on the period from November 2019 to June 2020. According to the document, both supporters and opponents of the regime are guilty of war crimes. In total, the commission investigated 52 episodes. 47 cases refer to the actions of the Bashar al-Assad regime and Russia supporting it. "
    And what shall we say?

    Usually, those who disagree with US policy are killed spontaneously. First, a person in a lured media is declared a terrorist or supporter of terrorists. They handle public opinion. Then a person is destroyed without trial. This is a very convenient policy. Many states use this policy. For example, Ukraine. There, entire regions of dissent were recorded as terrorists and, without a twinge of conscience, shell their own cities with guns. In Spain, the whole region of Catalonia wants to secede, but no one has declared Catalonia terrorists and is not shelling with guns. No one has declared the leaders of Catalonia the main terrorists and does not undermine together with the cafe, as was done with Zakharchenko.
