war criminals

War criminals Is Putin a war criminal if judged by the western criteria that makes him, along with George Bush and Tony Blair war criminals; who can forget Falluja, where thousands of innocent people were killed in their homes in a hail of bullets, no one thought of saving the civilians. I think of Libya the NATO/USA/Britain reduced to a failed state in the thirst of killing Gadhafi, the eccentric despot who had done more to bring Libya into a modern country than anyone else had dreamed of. He brought water to an arid state and made it green. There was a peace talk brokered by South Africa, were Gadhafi offered to resign but rejected because we wanted him dead, and we succeeded. The western powers have now managed to make a short war into a long one using Zelensky as a frontman. It is Putin they want dead; nothing else matters, not the death of thousands of civilians caught up in this mayhem. But for NATO or Brussels risking the life of their own people carrying out a policy that eventually will bring Europe to her knee by hunger and frost; may they all be damned.
