Kudos to Ban Ki-moon for having the courage to step forward and say something like this.

One thing I will question is why the rest of the Western world was seemingly so absent from public condemnations of events and policies in the USA that preceded or directly resulted in this situation. I do champion diplomacy and have the deepest respect for those who engage in it. However it is also necessary and healthy to be brave and principled enough to bite the hand that feeds you when the other hand is beating you or someone else. At some point you become complicit via inaction.

Stop War Now

Believe it or not, we don’t need to do this anymore. Start holding warmongering human beings accountable for their grievous acts and PREVENT the casual murder of children such as these.
