War Crimes?

What is happening in Syria very sad and horrible. How does it make us so much better people to allow peaceful protesters to be killed than to do it ourselves?

The U.N. called for an investigation of Gadaffi's death, saying it might be a war crime. But the U.N. did not protect Libya's people from brutality by Gadaffi for more than 40 years. So I would say they have no right to be calling for an investigation now.

UN war-crimes prosecutors rejected a request to probe the death of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, but said an investigation is possible in the future, CNN said on Wednesday.

Gaddafi's daughter Aisha and her lawyer Nick Kaufman requested the prosecution office of the International Criminal Court (ICC) to look into the October death of her father and brother Mutassim, who "were captured alive at a time when they posed no threat to anyone," only to be "murdered in the most horrific fashion."

ICC prosecutors said in a response that they will review Libya's investigation into alleged war crimes, including Gaddafi's death, and make a report on the issue in May 2012.
