"a war of aggression...is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_of_aggression

A war of aggression, sometimes also war of conquest, is a military conflict waged without the justification of self-defense, usually for territorial gain and subjugation.
.
.
.
The International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg, which followed World War II, called the waging of aggressive war "essentially an evil thing...to initiate a war of aggression...is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime, differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole."
.
.
.
The Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court refers to the crime of aggression as one of the ďmost serious crimes of concern to the international communityĒ

xpost from LGBT: I mean it. I will not do Russian State Media.

Hi XXXX -

I've checked some of your videos, you seem like a nice person. This is not aimed at you so please don't take it that way, but I have been boycotting Russian state media since shortly after the passage of the anti-gay law in June and I am adding the anschluss/unprovoked war of aggression in Crimea to that list of reasons now why I will not do Russian state media. I've heard the pro-Russian arguments that attempt to explain Crimea away, there are always excuses for unprovoked wars of aggression. I am not swayed. I don't care who may have owned what in the past. At one time the United Kingdom owned the state I live in. That does not give them the right to take it back if they could. I've also heard the lame attempts to portray the anti-gay law as something benign.

Again, I am not buying it.

So you know, I protested my own President, George W. Bush for the Iraq war so you can understand that if I don't give the President of my own country a pass for an illegal war, I am not going to do it for the leader of another country.

At this point I view Russia as an outlaw state headed by bigots and war criminals.

Unless Russia leaves Crimea and repeals the anti-gay law, I've done my last appearances on Russian state media. Not only that, I will do my best to get as many folks as I can not to watch or listen to Russian state media and every business and financial fund I possibly can to divest from Russia.

Different folks and shows from RT and VoR have been contacting me semi-regularly over the last 6-8 months hoping I will change my mind. I am not going to change my mind. Both of those issues are completely non-negotiable for me.

Again, this is not aimed at you personally but I think an explanation is in order.

Thanks
Steve

xpost from GD: Rude Pundit and more on my show that starts a little over 5 minutes from now.

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/lesersense/2014/03/16/rude-pundit-and-director-of-churchill-institute-on-russia-and-ukraine

This week we have two special interviews. First, Lee Papa the Rude Pundit returns to talk with me about a number of topics including the latest manufactured outrage on the healthcare law, health care coverage for ex cons, then we talk about Christie giving out campaign inducement trinkets made out of the steel from the downed world trade center buildings and the Alex Sink defeat in Florida and whether that portends anything for the 2014 midterm elections.

Then we have a special treat. Dr. Rob Havers, Executive Director of the Winston Churchill Memorial &. Library at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, joins us to discuss what Winston Churchillís perspective might have been on the current crisis with Russia.

At the end we will have our trademark weekly hall of fame and shame for those politicians and prominent individuals who made great sense or shameful nonsense, respectively.

If you want to write to me and give me your opinion of any topic I cover, write to makingsenseletters@yahoo.com and I may just read your opinion on the air. Again thatís makingsenseletters@yahoo.com
