Hundreds killed in possible chemical attack outside Damascus

Security Council has already convened for an emergency meeting in response to the reports, but Russia remains staunchly opposed to any sort of intervention in Syria, including U.N. investigators. source

I was informed of these crimes, but I plead not guilty. …I was a soldier in the Congo.
Alleged Congolese warlord Bosco Ntaganda • Denying the horrific war crimes charges he faces, at the International Criminal Court in The Hague. Ntaganda has been wanted for nearly two decades, considered one of the most brutal rebellion commanders of the Democratic Republic of Congo — nicknamed “The Terminator,” no less. Ntaganda clearly sought to downplay that reputation, presenting himself as a mere “soldier” when questioned by the judge, but the charges against him and arguments of his prosecution run much deeper than that — he stands charged with murder, rape, sex slavery, and the use of child soldiers. source

We have been clear that the use of chemical weapons against the Syrian people would be a serious and tragic mistake. The Assad regime must understand that they will be held accountable for the use of chemical weapons or their transfer to terrorists.
President Barack Obama - Commenting on the alleged usage of chemical weapons in attacks which left 25 dead and dozens injured in the Syrian city of Aleppo yesterday. Both those loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Syrian opposition forces have blamed their opponents for the attack; however, the perpetrators of Tuesday’s attack remain a mystery at this time. Many suspect the Assad regime, given previous reports about the Syrian government’s possession of such weapons, but calls for a formal investigation into the attack have gone unanswered thus far. source

Not to go to the UN would be suicidal for the Palestinian Authority. All these people [in Gaza] took the brunt of the attack and now we should chicken out because they [the US and Israel] will cut off some money? What we’re doing is not violent; it’s not military; it’s not illegal. The world should see that if they keep maintaining the status quo, it will get you nothing but more bloodshed. That’s the lesson from Gaza.
Senior Palestinian official Nabil Shaath - Assuring the Guardian’s Chris McGreal that Palestinians’ resolve to seek recognition of statehood from the United Nations would be broken by monetary threats. Several countries, most notably the US and UK, have been pressuring the Palestinian Authority to make various concessions ahead of its next attempt to gain international recognition on November 29. Much of the concern allegedly stems from the Israeli’s government’s fear that it will be dragged before the International Criminal Court on war crimes charges related to the Gaza offensive that took place four years ago. source
