The Goldstone article has had several updates and this is being added to work as another lead in to that article. The US quite predictably has said it will block the Security Council moves necessary to give the Report any teeth. The prospect is that an almost 600 page report will end up making a good doorstop and the adage that victors never face any form of condemnation for their actions will continue. ikners.com A Joomla site
It seems inevitable that many ‘war criminals’ will be allowed to continue in whatever their present lives offer them. But in this so called war against terror where the terrorists are by definition any groups that the US and others do not support, as Bush said “the gloves are off”.
The report is now available and can be obtained by via the New York Times site. There seemed to be a lot of problems getting a copy but the site address is http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/30/world/middleeast/30gaza.html?_r=1
You may need to join the NY Times list to get access. Joining is at no cost. Once you get to the site look for the blue print that says “575 page report” that is a clickable link to the report. There must be better ways to get the report but this is the only one I have tried that works.
In the meantime I will continue to update the original report but I may rename it and post it again so that it appears closer to the beginning of the lead ins.
