Quis custodiet ipsos custodies--but who guards the guardians?

Remember when the US used highly toxic Depleted Uranium in Syria in 2015 while on Obama's watch?

And when the US used banned White Phosphorus in Iraq while under the purview of John Bolton and others? Bolton was then the Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security Affairs.

Meanwhile, four decades after war ended in Vietnam, 'Agent Orange is still ravaging the Vietnamese'--at least 3 million have been directly affected and at least 150,000 children were born with severe birth defects. Is anyone from that era held accountable for this toxic chemical and its lucrative manufacture and carefree use, among them reviled Monsanto?

Will the transgressors ever pay for these and endless other war crimes that have distorted the whole world, that have crushed human rights along with humans, crushed lives and crushed societies--crushed humanity itself? These transgressions have touched the hearts of virtually everyone on earth in one way or another. They have crushed the heart of the human race and human liberty and severely warped the trajectory of human development, negatively altering the twisting course of civilization on earth. We all pay. We all can speak up against these war crimes and war criminals. Namely against the ignorance underlying it all.
