China's Xi meeting Putin in boost for isolated Russia leader
"Chinese leader Xi Jinping is meeting today with Russia's Vladimir Putin.

China has not condemned Putin's invasion of Ukraine. They are still buying Russian oil and energy resources. And they have at least given tacit approval because they've taken the Russian claim that this is somehow an existential threat against Russia that the war is the west's fault.

Ukraine military identifies soldier seen in grisly war video
"Ukraine's chief prosecutor has tentatively identified a man apparently shot dead by Russian speakers in a video that circulated widely on social media as a missing Ukrainian soldier. I'm Ben Thomas with the latest. The grim 12 second video shows a man in Ukrainian army fatigues, apparently unarmed, standing in the Woods in what appears to be a freshly dug hole smoking a cigarette. Someone off camera can be heard saying in Russian film him. Lifting his chin, he says. Glory to Ukraine. Just before the gunshots. Monday, Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky called on his nation to respond to those words in unity, saying glory to the hero. Glory to Ukraine. We will find The Killers. Tuesday formed mister de mitro kole said the incident explains what he calls a genocidal war. The Ukrainian man was clearly murdered, simply for expressing his Ukrainian identity and love for his homeland. It is a war crime and a violation of the Geneva conventions and the international humanitarian law to kill an armed prisoners of war. Adding the perpetrators of this cold blooded execution must be brought to justice. Ukraine has opened a national investigation. And I also urged the International Criminal Court prosecutor to launch an immediate investigation into this crime.

Evidence of Russian crimes mounts as war in Ukraine drags on
"Ten months into the war and there is overwhelming evidence to show that Russia has disregarded international laws on the treatments of civilians and conduct on the battlefield. Ukraine is investigating over 58,000 potential Russian war crimes, ranging from killings to sexual assaults, Karim Khan, the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court in The Hague, told the AP that Ukraine is a crime scene while there is a staggering amount of evidence most of those responsible are unlikely to be arrested any time soon.

"While previously it was only once in a while attacks here and there. Well, in recent days, they've been shooting dozens of those rockets, the ones that are not precise, they can not really target specific military installation. They cover the territory of in the range of 500 meters. So many of them, as a result of that, have been hitting the civilian infrastructure or residential areas in Ukraine. And it seems that this is the message that Putin is sending to the NATO summit and G 7 meeting in this way. He's escalating by and saying that, well, look, I know I can do more than that. I can be more cruel. I can be terrorizing Ukrainian people. I can make them suffer and die in dozens. And hoping that this message will make western leaders more talkable and willing to find a solution to the store on his terms. And is there any update on those people who are still buried within the rubble from that attack? Now, we've had attacks on different parts of the train following the same patterns. And unfortunately, it's very hard to tell straight away. What is the casualty number? Because the rubble is being searched for the people who could survive. And the overall number of casualties is rising daily as again, it seems that putting has been raising the stakes and targeting the civilian areas. And for example, specifically the part that was stroke by the Russian missiles has absolutely no military installations at all. It is a residential area. It's the holiday spot. It's the one where people go with their children to take locations. It seems that this is a specific way of tell rising Ukraine in the world. And yet Russia says that it's only targeting military installations. But of course, from the Ukrainian side, this would seem like another war crime. Well, it does. And it seems that Russia has stopped even trying to prevent war crimes committed in Ukraine. They do realize that they do not have the high precision weapon necessary to strike only the military installations. And therefore, they're playing for they are denying the obvious. They are saying that black on the white and white on the black. And this is the only defense that they have. And the reason why they are continuing that is that they feel that they will never be within the reach of any international tribunal accords who could prosecute the Russian military commanders for the war crimes committed. I think they just don't take International Criminal Court seriously or any other tribunal that might be established. And that is the other problem that I think the international community will have to deal with.

"The decision was made by the international community UN basically to set up the International Criminal Court, which would then try genocide in the more modern period. The more contemporary period. And the ICC lists three crimes, basically, you know, the genocide crimes against humanity and war crimes. And subsumed to crimes against humanity are a lot of the kinds of things you're talking about with North Korea. I mean, it's torture, it's artificial, sometimes artificial famine, or famine. You know, that is not necessary, right? Not necessarily to have it. And there are other kinds of mass rape and stuff like that. There are other kinds of things that fit. Into the crimes against humanity. And that's sort of where I think about North Korea. As committing crimes against humanity, not genocide. And again, remember, genocide is meant to be, some people, there's disagreement among scholars and jurists about this. Some people think of genocide as the crime of crimes. The worst of the three that I just mentioned. But some think of them as coequal, and the ICC, the International Criminal Court, is dealing with them, more or less as co equal, even though we tend to think of genocide as the worst. So I mean, what I'm trying to say is that, you know, I don't want to I don't want to split hairs, I think it's sort of morally and ethically unseemly, you know, the split hairs about what is genocide and what is a crime against humanity. You know, this is for lawyers not for historians. But terminology wise. Yeah, yeah. You don't want to get into that. Because when it happened with Darfur a little bit where the Bush administration had declared that the Darfur was a genocide in the UN said, no, no. It's, you know, it wasn't genocide. It was a crime against humanity. And then, you know, that confused things versus clarified them. I mean, we knew damn well knew what was happening. People were being killed and being attacked. And so, you know, on the one hand, I think the whole concept and the way of thinking about history using genocide is an important part of human history is crucial. On the other hand, I don't like to get involved in the hair splitting of what's genocide and what's not. So that, you know, North Korea I tend to think of, like I said as committing crimes against humanity and forcibly incarcerating people torturing them that kind of thing. You know, routinely incarcerating and depriving them of certain kinds of human rights can be considered a crime against humanity. But I don't think of it as the same way I think about genocide, which is an attack on a group of people. Let me just leave it at that. What in this, if we think about if it's okay, can we lose these the term genocide here just play games with terminology, just bad crimes against humanity? Right. Of particular interest that the ones that are going on today still because it raises the question to us, what do people outside of this, what role do they have to play? So what role does the United States, or what role do I.

"K. Kimura joins us now from somali tennessee to talk about her new novel. Intimacies katie. hi hi family. Thanks so much for having me. Thanks for being here and from sony. What are you doing there. I am taking part in the swannee writers conference which is a gathering of. i think almost two hundred writers. And there's a series of workshops and readings and many many dinners and late nights all right. That sounds very un. Quarantine like yeah. It's a little bit of a shock. I think everybody's adjusting to the experience of being in a room with other people than trying to remember socialize. You know that actually brings us to the subject of this novel. Because i i do feel like we're all relearning how to socially communicate with peanut person and not on a screen and i feel like when i see someone now. I'm like hello. I am a person and i just everything like slightly off and this book. Intimacies is in part about language and communication. And you tell us in your own words. The premise of the book. The novel is about a woman who moves from new york to the hague in the netherlands to take a job working as an interpreter. At a war crimes tribunal and very quickly she becomes entangled in a series of professional and personal situations which destabilize for a sense of the world around her and also her place in it and a lot of the novel is really occupied by her. Not only doing the interpretive work in her in the court in her professional context but also in our own life as she can scans people around her and tries to understand what they're feeling what their motivations might be how they're reacting to her so when you said that it's a little bit related to the way i think we're all feeling i certainly feel like a kind of almost hypersensitivity every time i meet a person. Now as i'm trying to relearn all the cues of body language and and everything else that is part of how we interact with people

"Now back to the story on july first. Two thousand to the international criminal court opened for business with backing from the united nations. The icy sea was an impartial. Independent court whose jurisdiction reached one hundred twenty countries. It investigated criminals who were not prosecuted by their home countries for genocide torture human trafficking and more after their first trial and sentencing of warlord. Thomas banga the icy sea was fully operational. It didn't take long for the court to realize that it wasn't people who were going to be an obstacle to their mission but states of all the countries acting above the law. The one the icy sea wanted to prosecute the most was the united states of america however the usa israel iraq libya qatar yemen russia and china had all excused themselves from signing the rome statute in nineteen ninety eight. They claimed that the i c c had no jurisdiction but they probably wanted to keep away out of self preservation in particular the icc wanted to investigate american activities in iraq and afghanistan. Witnesses reported that american troops and cia agents repeatedly violated the human rights of civilians. If the united states recognized the icc's authority. A lot of americans could have found themselves in the white cells of the hague de other countries. Who didn't sign onto the rome. Statute also kept their distance from the court for similar reasons. The world superpowers were apparently to politically powerful for international jurisdiction. The icc was a small entity next to these giants but the court had to contend with its own bias as well as of two thousand eighteen twenty six cases under investigation by the i. C. c. were all for crimes committed on african soil. Critics argued that this gave the impression that only africans committed war crimes genocide and crimes against humanity. African authorities accused the i c c of operating as a modern arm of european colonialism. In two thousand sixteen several african nations announced they would leave the roman statute including south africa gambia and burundi. The i c. C which is made up of members from around the globe claimed that they were only seeking to protect the well being of the world but as it turned out they underestimated how much powerful nation could get away with and how vulnerable smaller less. Wealthy countries were while the icy sea work to patch up its shortcomings. The us threatened sanctions against the entity in two thousand eighteen. If the entity pursued cases against americans trump's national security adviser john bolton targeted the icc calling the international institution illegitimate david scheffer. The lawyer who represented america during the founding of the international court remarked on his nation's double standard as they police the world's tyrants and gangsters the us believed itself to be above the law the ic stated that it wasn't backing down from threats but for many the court is too tainted already in march of twenty twenty former congolese warlord thomas lubunga wrapped up his fourteen year sentence and became a free man. His lawyer announced that a cultural misunderstanding led to lubunga sentencing and that he was only a guinea pig for an experimental criminal court. The near future will be vital for the i.

Let's go back to the morning of july first. Two thousand two when the international criminal court opened its doors for business. It was a quiet day. The brand new offices justice halls at archives were empty and silent. The grand opening was less like the start of a world police headquarters and more like the founding of the world's most boring startup but all that changed quickly lawmakers from one hundred twenty countries around the world filled in the empty rooms for one purpose. Only to decide who they were going to bring to justice the sitting started slowly since the icc c. Had agreed to only prosecute people for crimes committed after its founding but anyone could tip off the court with a criminal case that required international judgment.

Some temporary international tribunals found success over the previous sixty years the earliest were the nurenberg trials which prosecuted nazi. War criminals. After germany's downfall. Despite its popularity critics argued that it was less about law and order and more about the allies showing off cold war. Tensions between the us and soviet union slowed multinational efforts for decades. But when the ice thawed tribunals started picking up steam again in nineteen ninety-three a un group was established to judge. The war crimes committed in yugoslavia.

He was a congolese military commander who led militias in the turey conflict. A bloodbath that left tens of thousands of soldiers and civilians dead besides driving the ethnic violence lubunga had ordered families to surrender an offering to the army. Whether that be money a cow or a child. According to human rights watchdogs banga coordinated the recruitment taking victims as young as eleven years. Old child soldiers in his armies were beaten drugged and thrown into grizzly combat. The girls were forced into sex. Slavery lubunga claimed innocence saying he was only fighting for his people and did not call for the use of child soldiers when i see prosecutors officially charged him. He negotiated a lesser jail sentence. If lubunga apologized for his actions he did not. The trial wasn't easy nor graceful. It dragged stretching from january two thousand nine to july of two thousand twelve. Lawmakers around the world balked at the sloppiness and human rights. Groups hounded the case mistrials were declared several times. Only for appeals judges to bring mubanga right back to court.

"On secular record. Now our senior counsel joining us as well. So your counsel for Foreign affairs, National security and Rick I wanted We kind of let this develops, see how the Democrats were going to take action as well. But I want to start off with this line of questioning because this idea from Ilan Omar, it's not just rhetoric. She tied it to some much longer game plan, which is the the International Criminal Court. And I think to just take her words as extremist rhetoric, which it is and should be condemned. But then forget what the longer term play which is not so necessarily out of line with some in the Democratic Party and some and many on the left, which is ultimately to have the U. S. Join the I. C. C. So we see the condemnation coming out from the entire House Democrat leadership, But she's still sits Rick on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. No Republican would ever be still sitting on that committee making any statements that would be considered racist. Uh, sexist, homophobic. The list goes on and on, and the Republican Party takes quick action not to take away from the voters. They get to choose who they want into Congress. But that vote does not include getting to pick what committees they sit down. Yeah, And let's remember this is not her first time, right? She's she's had multiple chances now, Uh, really, um, you know, messing up here. We keep tripping over ourselves in the national media to give her yet another chance or another explanation. Remember on uh, in talking about 9 11, she said some people did something. Really minimizing 9 11. She's compared the United States to Hezbollah Hamas, Uh, the Taliban now it's it's a growing problem in the way she views America, she clearly doesn't like America. Being a leader. She wants us to be one of many and so therefore she jumps at the chance to highlight any problem as been a systematic problem. And that's where I really have. The hardest time with her world view is that she doesn't think that America is exceptional. She doesn't think that we are the greatest and look. It's fine for her to critique. American policy Israeli policy. We are all for it. She this is a free country and she gets to do that, but But I think that it's a really dangerous and that she should be called out. Consistently when she's trying to blame America first or the world's problems, she she's lost her perspective. Yeah. I mean, I read the statement and parties. I've been reading the statement more than even playing the long winded audio because that she put along with this statement, and then her clarifications to take out It. Doesn't you know what? What? Because what she immediately went to his house because I'm a Muslim is because of a woman this list going on and on And it's not. It's because of the words it could be uttered by anyone but I think more so possibly that her life experience would inform her that these groups are not necessarily ones that you want to be living under control of, or society is certainly her parents made that decision. That's why America exists is for actual people need refuge to be able to seek that refuge. Family did that, but the idea she's sitting on those committees She's getting briefings that other members of Congress are on our foreign policy, and it's tied to a bigger policy fight. You see if they don't move to actually say, Okay, you know, we're not going to let you be on this committee. Um and and that's that's the strongest kind of action they can. They can really take. Uh, they're empowering that the rest of that group but also this is kind of like the forest of far left thinking Rick from the edge of the academic world. And it's starting to play out now in reality in Congress. Well, let's talk about a little bit of the good news. She's been able to unite Republicans and Democrats. Um, uh, sadly against her, and now we have Democrats condemning her actions. It's taken way too long. Let's be very honest about that. But it's also good news is that they're feeling empowered. They're feeling like they have to condemn her. Um, there there, you know, obviously walking on thin ice, and they're very careful and how they're condemning her. But make no mistake, Jordan. This is a very big deal. When the leadership of the Democratic Party is calling out for words, and she, of course, did whatever progressive does and I was glad to see that. You know Nancy Pelosi and the leadership got a little taste. What they usually throw around is, you know immediately, she says, Oh, your success or your Islamophobic. And as you point out, it has nothing to do with her gender or her religion. It has everything to do with her equating. Morally the Taliban Hamas Hezbollah with the United States of America, which really honestly angers me because somebody in her position should know. Maybe we got to put it into a better perspective for her. Let's see what the Palestinian position is on climate change and gay rights and just you know those two progressive issues. Let's let's match. Uh Palestinian Authority with Israel or America. She will see a dramatic difference. And so I think that this is the beginning of a problem for her in Congress. The leadership has called her out. She's probably not going to have much power for a little while, at least Yeah. I mean, I think that would be a good thing and it be a good thing for the country. Looking past partisan politics, especially in these kind of committees that will this influence. I want to go to Rick that the received uh, President Biden's first foreign trip. There's We're not getting the press conferences. We're not getting a lot of questions back and forth. So again. There's some speech is a bit of criticizing the joint Chiefs, saying that climate change is the number one issue but past that And the fact that they won't let us to the question..

Crimes can goal for justice so that was an important question to ask because the international criminal court which wants to probe the israeli government for possible war crimes against the palestinian people in gaza that the united states government the biden administration specifically does not support.
