It is terrible to see the photo from the My Lai massacre in Vietnam and the “Collateral Murder” video of civilians being gunned down in Iraq, but the comparison by Joe Lauria on Consortium News of the reaction to the evidence of two war crimes is important. At the end of the article he quotes Yanis Varoufakis, the former Greek finance minister, who says regardig the treatment of Julian Assange: “Things are getting worse. Far worse.”
Lately we also found out that the US prosecutors have failed to include the “Collateral Murder” video revelations in the indictment against Assange. It reminds us about Harold Pinter’s words about war crimes that “never happened”. Or at least, that is what they want you to believe.
Are you goind to let them get away with it?
If so, don’t be surprised if things are getting far worse.
