To: WE THE PEOPLE-vol.2
Title: “Government Sponsored Mass Murder – Commonalities Shared By The United States, Syria, & Russia”
The name of the original “WE THE PEOPLE” I prepared back on 07/07/2011 is “Gun Control, Oscar Grant, & The Slaughter In Syria”.
Today(12/04/2016), finds us – one and all – witnesses to the reports of news outlets such as CNN etc., which are as horror defining as it gets. Children being burned alive in the streets as a final lesson to their onlooking mothers.
Somewhere between the Russian(Putin) bombs and Assad’s evil little mercenary army men — the Syrian opposition(THE PEOPLE) are being exterminated on international TV.
It is said that “the only thing that is required for evil to thrive — is for
so-called Good People to do nothing!”….
If this is true, then I posit that there are no Good People inside the United States Government as of 12/12/2016.
And, because I rely upon Our Declaration Of Independence for this conclusion – it shall forever stand as THE MEASURING STICK what condemns us one and all. In its most relevant and material part, on this point, it reads as follows:
“That, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That, whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most practical to effect their safety and happiness.”…(DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE 1776)
To secure these rights? At this late date in time it cannot be questioned by any wise or reasonable PEOPLE of which “rights” our Founding Fathers are referring to —- those Unalienable Rights of LIFE, LIBERTY, EQUITY, EQUALITY, &THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.
Although the original We The People I drew up touched upon a number of situations that involved government sponsored and otherwise supported murdering of non-government People, all of those situations revolve around that ugly common thread. And thereby, my proposition stands. That is to say that neither Governments nor their Officials can justifiably enjoy any reasonable powers what may authorise them to slaughter The Sovereign People — — —
My thinking lead me to believe and hope that Assad and his friends would loose as a matter of divine providence.
But, with the present turn of events, I believe it critical to show my fellow People Of The United States what the above quoted section of Our Declaration Of Independence, the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution and, the Laws Of Nations have in common and why it forces US as a nation to demand the capture and trial of Assad and all those who are aiding that regime.
The principle of “jus cogens norms” has, and continues to be, a standing principle of the strongest character since the end of WORLD WAR 2.
A jus cogens norm of international law, also known as a “peremptory norm” of international law, “is a norm accepted and recognized by the international community of States as a whole as a norm from which no derogation is permitted and which can be modified only by a subsequent norm of general international law having the same character.”
See Vienna Convention on the Law and Treaties, May 23,1969, art. 53, 1155 U.N.T.S. 332;
Also see 1 Restatement (Third) Of Foreign Relations Law Section 102, cmt.k & Reporter’s Note 6(1987).
Jus cogens norms rest upon the hierarchy of international laws, and enjoy the greatest clout, preempting both conflicting treaties and customary international laws.
See United States v. Alfried Krupp, IX Trials Of War Criminals Before The Nuernberg[SIC] Military Tribunals Under Control Counsil Law No. 10 at 1395(1950).
It is from one of the grand tragedies of the modern era, and the realized difficulties of arming and defending a population from government onslaught, that WE see our Second Amendment take on its most potent meaning – verbatim in virtual – which is:
Be it Oscar Grant, Nat Turner, John Brown, or Stanley Tookie Williams —- Governments and their Officials will always have a self serving interpretation for why they needed to kill you, me and, the Kids down the street.
As for Donald Trump’s declaring the terrorist attack in Germany an “attack on humanity”, Assad slaughtered over 200,000 Syrians which seems like a much greater attack on humanity — No????
So what does Trump truly mean by such a declaration?
