A WIN on the War Against the Abuse of Power and Human Rights

A message of hope to start the week:

Former Liberian president Charles Taylor is finally being brought to justice; the quotes in italic's are taken from Dumisani Muleya's article found in full here: http://allafrica.com/stories/201204280152.html

This article covers the why behind the lesson's to be herald in the age of the world wide Internet full of Communication; it is this, the abuse of power and human rights is unacceptable and we the people of this world are not going to tolerate oppression under any disguise to our world neighbors or at home.  The time for Child Protection Services and Governments  "The world over, leaders often abuse office with reckless abandon, forgetting one day they would be held to account in a court of law or court of public opinion."

This ruling should give the repressed hope because it  "....sends an important message to high-ranking state officials; no matter who you are or what position you hold, one day you will be brought to justice for your crimes."

"...the arrogant lack of remorse and failure to embrace truth and reconciliation by the brutal perpetrators beyond their choreographed phoney remarks and insulting gestures."   Will be brought forward, toleration of oppression is not long lasting.

"the Taylor verdict shows, those in power NOT JUST  in Zimbabwe must not think they are untouchable because the day of reckoning will come, maybe sooner rather than later."

"All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will to be rightful must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal law must protect, and to violate would be oppression."    Thomas Jefferson

To: Dumisani Muleya's thank you for your well reasoned and compelling message to world leaders in your coverage of the long anticipated justice coming to the victims in Zimbabwe. dmvc
