Bombing for Peace: Syria strike better than nothing? (ft. Human Rights Watch CEO)
Published on Sep 8, 2013
Chemical weapons have horrified mankind since their first widespread use almost a century ago. The world has come to recognize their use as a flagrant violation of international law. As the US once again beats the drums of war towards Syria, we ask how justified such an intervention is, given the conflicting evidence and the widespread opposition to it. Will a strike help stop the war, or will it drag the whole region into a more brutal and protracted conflict? To wrestle over these issues, Oksana is joined by Kenneth Roth, the Executive Director of Human Rights Watch.

*** Not that I ever stopped looking at them with skepticism, and setting aside the fact that the man's criticism of Russia's own past crimes be not excused, especially when pointedly being questioned by an official Russian state govt TV network, that said, when an organization called "Human Rights Watch," whom on the surface, states that they would not take an official position (always prudent, unless you yourself can verify incidents that require evidence to prove its veracity) on the currently unfolding situation in Syria, but at the same time, its executive director Kenneth Roth is so adamant that there's not even a possibility that CIA-backed rebels could ever launch a false flag chemical attack, should be wholly disturbing to anyone who's ever donated or saw this group as some morally principled NGO (yes, no such thing, but for the sake of argument, y'all get the gist).
Well, to be fair, as it is the personal view of its executive director, which in no way equates to commonly held views among its rank and file, nor their donor base. Still, Kenneth Roth has headed the organization since 1993, and has already expressed his own personal bias, through HRW's activism or lack of it in the past already. Plus, looks like he's another closet, 'soft'-Likunik, but nevertheless, a full blown AIPAC-lackey.
As such, to those who may have donated to Human Rights Watch in the past, may want to be aware of it, maybe even stay away, and/or watch 'em like a hawk, as long as Ken Roth is still heading that outfit, IMHO.
Keep an eye on Oksana Boyko; she's been kicking ass and takin' names. She is what a fierce anchor/host should sound like. Well, should at least deploy similar type of questions, at bare minimum anyway.
Recently, Oksana also took Michio Kaku to task, rather nicely: Michio Kaku, famed Theoretical Physicist, All Theory, No Physics: How DARE You question the Official 9/11 FairyTale!
That said, like she'd ever take Putin to task, for his 'alleged' involvement in the assassination of a noted Russian journalist/ardent critic of Putin himself: Anna Politkovskay, or the soft-kill assassination of Alexander Litvinenko, or the fact that he DID in fact order 'his' FSB to deploy a REAL chemical warfare agent against 'his own' civilian population, 'to save them', and not to mention his alleged false flag...AGAINST HIMSELF, to boost his image.
Well, as with these things, always look to foreign press to get a sense of what's really going on in America, but look here, for criticism of outside countries.
Well...okay, so oversimplified and...not really. But, y'all get the gist. LOL...er.. .o/
