Arrest Bashar al-Assad - Crimes Against Humanity

As Fatou Bensouda assumes her new position, Chief Prosecutor, International Criminal Court, The Hague (on 16 June 2012), it is timely to test our ability -- a deafening groundswell of global citizens -- endorsing the arrest of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, including his immediate re-location to the International Criminal Court in The Hague, to be tried for crimes of genocide, murder, rape, torture, and all additional crimes against humanity. It is impossible to envision any individual or entity, including the governments who have supported his bloody regime, to come to al-Assad's defense, or offer him shelter, in a case that also enjoys no statute of limitations. Hosni Mubarak has been convicted, and sentenced to life imprisonment, for his murderous crimes as Egypt's dictator. It is overdue that al-Assad must realize his fate, full-on; psychopathic narcissism precludes his recognition of those tea leaves, so a warning of impending arrest likely won't work. Thus, immediate arrest and re-location brings, what sanctions, diplomacy, international observations (and Syria's criminal justice system, "chaired," as it is, by al-Assad), cannot bring -- the seed of a beginning of life and humanity and dignity, restored to the Syrian people, proved to be suffering incalculably, at the hands of a megalomaniacal despot, and his malice aforethought.
