Quote of the Day

Samantha Power: “The idea behind the Nuremberg Tribunal – that the international community has a stake in holding accountable those who commit such unthinkable crimes – undergirds many of the norms and institutions that we have helped create since the Second World War. But those norms and institutions have value only if they are put into practice – which means continuing to investigate and prosecute the perpetrators of gross violations of human rights. Not only the Radovan Karadzics and Hissene Habres of the world, whose crimes were committed in decades past, crucial as justice is in those instances – but also the Assads and Kim Jong Uns of the world, who are overseeing as we speak the massacring and forced starvation of their own people, in real time.”
