I have chosen this topic for my first post because I believe this very important issue has fallen "below the radar" and that must not be allowed to happen! I apologize, in advance, to those who may take offense to this post but I firmly believe those what are responsible for these crimes must be held to account!

Here are some links to what I, among others, believe show that serious international crimes were committed that are in contravention of the Geneva Conventions:
