United Nations rights chief tells Nepalese to stop gross abuses

Yeh, or we are gonna get pissed off.
"The UN human rights commissioner, Louise Arbour, urged the Nepalese government and Maoist rebels to stop fighting and abusing civilians now that a four month cease-fire has ended."
Stop this childish behavior, now, damnit!

Referring to the executions, abductions, attacks on buses, indiscriminate bombing of civilian areas and widespread torture where children have been killed, recruited, used as informers, and arbitrarily detained and beaten, Ms. Arbour says,
"It is a tragedy for the people of Nepal that full-scale armed conflict may now resume....But there need not and must not be the same gross violations of international humanitarian law and human rights standards that have been perpetrated during previous phases of the conflict."
Okay, okay, Ms. Arbour, you make it very clear you are not happy with the present situation, so what's the bottem line?
"Those on either side of the conflict who commit violations must be held accountable -- not only the perpetrators but also those in command of forces which commit such acts may be subject to individual criminal responsibility before a court of law,'' Arbour said.
Very well, then. There you have it. They have been put on notice that the U.N. is NOT AT ALL HAPPY with their behavior. Now that we have that distraction taken care of, let's get back to the more important matters at hand, shall we......like global warming perhaps?
