    R2P The Responsibility to Protect:

    Prevention requires apportioning responsibility to and promoting collaboration between concerned States and the international community. The duty to prevent and halt genocide and mass atrocities lies first and foremost with the State, but the international community has a role that cannot be blocked by the invocation of sovereignty. Sovereignty no longer exclusively protects States from foreign interference; it is a charge of responsibility where States are accountable for the welfare of their people. This principle is enshrined in article 1 of the Genocide Convention and embodied in the principle of “sovereignty as responsibility” and in the concept of the Responsibility to Protect.

    The three pillars of the responsibility to protect, as stipulated in the Outcome Document of the 2005 United Nations World Summit (A/RES/60/1, para. 138-140) and formulated in the Secretary-General’s 2009 Report (A/63/677) on Implementing the Responsibility to Protect are:

    1)The State carries the primary responsibility for protecting populations from genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing, and their incitement;

    2)The international community has a responsibility to encourage and assist States in fulfilling this responsibility;

    3)The international community has a responsibility to use appropriate diplomatic, humanitarian and other means to protect populations from these crimes. If a State is manifestly failing to protect its populations, the international community must be prepared to take collective action to protect populations, in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations.

      David Clark…so. Then you of all people know who is responsible for the mess going on in Iraq now. Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, the politicians who voted for Bush to send us into that war.

    Hi everyone, just dropped in to see what you are up to and share some tweets. Gee howdy, this was a good decision.

    We say a special prayer tonight for our dear compassionate President Barack Obama.
    We ask for Divine guidance, strength and wisdom as he carries the WORLD on his shoulders.
    Amen.

    Well at least he conceded that his tweet was a cheap shot….but after considerable push-back from the Twitter O-Brigade.

    OH HELL YES! http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/valleyfever/2014/08/arizona_freedom_summer_latino_vote.php

    A coalition of immigrant rights groups held a press conference this morning to announce the launch of “Arizona Freedom Summer,” a campaign to get out the Latino vote in this fall’s elections.

    The campaign’s name references the push to register African-American voters in the segregated Deep South about 50 years ago. But this time, volunteers came from the south to register voters here in Arizona. This morning, a bus with 43 volunteers from Arkansas arrived at St. Matthew’s Catholic Church in Phoenix. The visitors, members of an immigrant-rights non-profit called the Arkansas United Community Coalition, are here to share their knowledge with members of One Arizona, a non-partisan coalition of church groups, student organizations, and individuals working to get out the Latino vote and push for immigration reform.

    “Arizona has been a battleground for civil rights for Latinos for really the last 100 years,” said the Reverend John Mireles, a leader in the state’s League of United Latin American Citizens, one of the nation’s oldest civil rights organizations for Latinos.

    Today’s event marked the beginning of a civic-engagement drive that will last through Election Day. Arkansas and Arizona volunteers will canvass and make phone calls to encourage voter registration over the next several days. And come Election Day, local volunteers will push Latino voters to put that registration to use.

    I seldom watch the talking heads programs. I watched a little tonight just following the President’s statement. It’s remarkable to me how there is such a license for distortion and flat out lying to further an agenda by those people. The war mongers are out in full force with their talking points dusted off. One GOPer former GWB ambassador was yelling, ‘yeah.. let’s go to war with ISIS because of 9/11.’ And said ISIS and Al Qaeda are same thing. Well, the President chose his words carefully. He invoked the UN Charter about genocide. And he invoked the rational of protecting US citizens, and he invoked the request of the Iraqi govt. for assistance. Clearly making a case, not for new war, or involving the do-nothing Congress, but for taking selective action that is not welcomed but necessary. In June he made the case we are not going to intervene in a civil war in Iraq of one ethnic group over another. And we’re still not going to do that despite what the war mongers want.

    Susanne, if you happen to stop by after the storm has passed, please know that we’re thinking about the Big Island and its residents.

    Hope you and everyone there is doing fine.
