On War Crimes and Tennis Sheds
Monday, October 14, 2019 – commondreams.org
Still, the con and his hollow evil spawn, who preside over 120 businesses in Turkey which has nothing to do with their headlong folding to Erdogan, proceed on their money-grubbing way. As the atrocities mount, Trump rages about Schiff, boasts he defeated ISIS «100%,» proposes Napoleon help the Kurds, and urges votes for Sean Spicer on «Dancing With the Stars.» Eric peddles Trump wine, golf, lies, chocolate and grotesque hypocrisy. Melania proudly announces a new tennis pavilion as «a testament to American craftsmanship and skill»; never mind the slaughter, congrats on the shed. And Nepotism Barbie plays Marie Antoinette, touting daddy’s new Louis Vuitton factory, posing for photos, and jabbering at global events about «a way to operationalize the President’s national security strategy which explicitly states the critical and vital way women play in promoting peace and stability» and women being «brought to the negotiating table.» Alas, Hervin Khalaf – Kurdish human rights leader and official of a Future Syria Party aimed at uniting Arabs and Kurds – will not be among them. One of nine Kurdish politicians executed by jihadists, Khalaf was dragged from her car, raped, stoned to death and beheaded. Her driver and bodyguard were also dragged out and killed; all three murders were filmed and posted online. There, too, many vented their rage at the primping, clueless, complicit Ivanka in the face of grim reality: «She is Lady Macbeth, and this blood shall not wash off her hands. #Hervin_Khalaf – let her name follow you forever.» And for the rest of her foul clan, may they get what they deserve.
From a Kurdish journalist, harrowing video of a father from Serê Kanîyê/ Ras Al-Ayn whose three children had just been killed: «They destroyed my family. I am finished…Kill me please. One’s child is precious. I have lost my three children. Three…Three.» pic.twitter.com/UqfaDIOn73
