UNSC powerless to punish Russia because '40 percent are actively engaged in genocide': Thiessen

Después, former Bush speechwriter Marc Thiessen dijo Fox News that there is not much the United Nations is able to do because nearly half of its security council’s permanent membership – the states with veto powerare complicit in “crímenes contra la humanidad.”

En “La historia“, anfitrión Martha MacCallum referenced the Biden administration’s careful language on war crimes after National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan declined to label Kremlin assaults on civiliansgenocide.

We have seen atrocities, we have seen war crimes, we have not yet seen a level of systematic deprivation of life of the Ukrainian people to rise to the level of genocide,” Sullivan, a former Hillary Clinton adviser, had said.

Thiessen said it is difficult to watch footage of the civilian casualties, saying that such crimes are indeedprosecutablebut the U.N.’s power is neutered.

“[GRAMO]enocide, crimes against humanity, crímenes de guerra, como quieras llamarlo, these are atrocities, and they’re prosecutable,” él dijo.

The problem is that the UN is completely incapable of addressing these atrocities for one simple reason: 40% of its voting members are actively engaged in genocide and crimes against humanity.

Los Estados Unidos, Francia, Rusia, China and United Kingdom are the five permanent members of the council, who can all veto resolutions, while several other rotating and elected members include Gabon, the UAE, Irlanda, India and Ghana.

In China – [a] veto wielding memberthey have over a million Uyghurs in concentration camps in something that the United States has declared is genocide,” él dijo.
