Expert Panel Discussion on Post-Assad Syria

Professor Michael Scharf of Case Western Reserve University School of Law produces a quarterly radio show, “Talking Foreign Policy,” that will host an expert panel to discuss plans for transitional justice for a post-Assad Syria on Thursday, May 16.  The program can be accessed via a computer live stream from WCPN.org at 7:00 PM (US Eastern Standard Time -- 5 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time) on May 16. 

The expert panel consists of Judge Raid Juhi al-Saedi, the Chief Investigative Judge of the Saddam Hussein Trial; David Crane, the founding Chief Prosecutor of the Special Court for Sierra Leone; Shannon French, Director of the Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence; and Paul Williams, President of the Public International Law & Policy Group, who recently returned from Istanbul where he chaired a meeting of leading transitional justice experts and members of the Syrian opposition.

If you miss the live broadcast, the archived version will be available in a couple of weeks for listening

Remember Iraq 2003 -> complete failure. Minorities such as Christians live in fear. Population of Christian has declined by 50% since USA invaded Iraq. Remember that Iraq used chemical weapons against Iran in 88. USA and France supported Iraq and accused Iran of using it. Wow, and was their military action against Iraq or strong critism - no response. At that time 20,000 or more people in Iran were killed. Do not believe your leaders!!

USA, GB and France are (co)-responsible for the increased sectarian violence in the Middle East. Iraq is the biggest tragedy. And now they want to take action without proof provided by an independent body. Are they that stupid. Sorry, it gives justification for Russia and China to provide more and dangerous weapons to Syria.
