Britain’s decision to start bombing in Syria has split opinions to say the least, but three men in Scotland have gone so far as to report it as a war crime.
The men headed to Rutherglen Police Station near Glasgow on Friday to report prime minister David Cameron, and an incident number was duly delivered.
The men believe that in dropping bombs on Syria, Cameron has violated the Kellogg-Briand Pact which was established to renounce war.
Signed by Britain, France, Germany, and the US in 1928, the peace treaty failed to stop World War II but campaigners insist it is still in effect.
The men arrive at the station and inform a lone officer of their purpose.
They tell the officer:
We’re here to make a criminal complaint against the Prime Minister of the UK, David Cameron .
He’s gone to war in breach of international law. In 1928, a treaty was made called the Kellogg-Briand pact.
It was a treaty to end all war. This is the truth.
What has happened since is in the Second World War the Germans were actually prosecuted under this international war law.”
The United Nations has passed a resolution saying nations should use ‘all necessary measures’ in a bid to defeat ISIS, and it is this resolution that will likely provide the PM with a defence against claims of war crimes.
An alleged war criminal who supposedly likes to pork dead pigs. Some positive PR must be at the top of David Cameron’s list to Santa.
