UN slams Donald Trump for killing Iranian General Soleimani because there was 'insufficient evidence he was behind an ongoing or imminent attack'
UK Daily Mail ^ | July 07 2020 | Reuters

Posted on 07/07/2020 1:53:30 AM PDT by knighthawk

The January U.S. drone strike in Iraq that killed top Iranian general Qassem Soleimani and nine other people represented a violation of international law, a U.N. human rights investigator said on Monday.

The United States has failed to provide sufficient evidence of an ongoing or imminent attack against its interests to justify the strike on Soleimani's convoy as it left Baghdad airport, said Agnes Callamard, U.N. special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions.

The attack violated the U.N. Charter, Callamard wrote in a report calling for accountability for targeted killings by armed drones and for greater regulation of the weapons.

It killed nine other people?

First time I have heard that.

All the video and stills I looked at had just one vehicle.

Wiki:

“Agnès Callamard is a French Human Rights expert and the Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions appointed by the United Nations Human Rights Council. She is also the Director of Columbia University’s Global Freedom of Expression project.”

True.

But this time we will have a much larger number of domestic enemies than in WWI or WWII.

We somehow managed to keep other countries out of our civil war.

This time it would be a civil war and a world war possibly.

That’s tough

Always
And they traffic children.
Recall the UN peacekeepers sexually abusing children every chance they got, diplomats doing same, kickbacks, bribes, graft, etc.
They can’t even use the restroom without monetary corruption, a human rights abuse, and a sex scandal.

My guess is that they want more info on how we did it so they could reassess their military’s potential effectiveness.

The UN is, was, and always will be, “behind” Iran, Soleimani, and every other anti-American terrorist in the world. Therefore, we are as fully justified in eliminating them (the guilty ones at least) as we were in eliminating Soleimani himself. I say let ‘em stay. Easier to hit them. Heck, MAKE them stay until we’re done with the job. See who wants to vote with Satan after that.

This a-hole Iranian general Qassem Soleimani was responsible for many American as well as other countries peoples death,
He is in hell where he belongs.
The U.N. has a few dozen muslem countries that band together.
The U.N. should be kicked out of the U.S. and we should quit funding their sorry asses

No kidding every time I had to go by the UN building in Manhattan I would spit. And get nauseous.

I thought what a great piece of real estate being wasted.

Free countries are few in number.

Why would they want to meet with dozens of countries that aren’t?

There’s nothing in common and no common interests or goals.

Just treachery and deceit.

Come to think of it, the UN is a lot like my ex :).
