Because it means that the law already includes us

so it is a matter of procedural changes; rather than more decades of court cases

how do we tell the children to not bully each other

when all they see is what the adults do, eh

Being Seen to Do Something, but not actually doing anything

is facilitating an extending the problem

not a solution

The Russian president, Vladimir Putin, has doubled down on his support for the Syrian government despite postmortem results confirming that chemical weapons were used in an attack that killed at least 72 people in Syria’s Idlib province.

A Kremlin statement quoting the president described the allegations of a chemical attack as “groundless accusations” and called for a “detailed and unbiased investigation”. However, Putin’s press spokesman also warned that the Kremlin’s support for Bashar al-Assad’s regime was “not unconditional”.

The statements were released shortly after Turkey said that evidence of the use of chemical weapons had been found in three victims who had died in Turkish hospitals after being brought from Syria for treatment.

Western nations have been frustrated by the UN’s failure to agree a unified response to what was one of the most devastating strikes in the brutal six-year war.

On Wednesday, Russia deployed its security council veto to protect Assad’s government from censure after the defence ministry in Damascus claimed Syrian planes were destroying chemical weapons, not deploying them, with airstrikes targeting a rebel storage depot for toxins. That claim has been widely dismissed as implausible by experts.

The British defence secretary, Michael Fallon, told reporters the “appalling” attack had to be “laid clearly at the door of the [Assad] regime and its supporters”. He added that the UK is “consulting urgently with allies now to see how we can get Russia, which supports the Syrian regime, to put proper pressure on President Assad to stop these attacks once and for all.”

The Turkish justice minister, Bekir Bozdağ, announced on Thursday that the results of the autopsies “confirm that chemical weapons were used”, the state-run Anadolu news agency reported.

The postmortems were conducted by officials from the World Health Organization in Adana, along with officials from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, Bozdağ said.

Later Turkey’s health ministry said 31 people injured in the attack who had been taken across the border showed signs of being exposed to the nerve agent sarin. “Evidence was detected in patients which leads one to think they were exposed to a chemical substance [sarin],” the ministry said in a statement.

As evidence mounted confirming the use of chemical weapons, so did western pressure for some response. Donald Trump warned that the strike had changed his view of the Syrian leader, Bashar al-Assad.”
