Col Lawrence Wilkerson A Glimpse into the Underbelly of Global Transgressions and Law Enforcement
Who holds the reins of international law and what happens when it’s breached but not enforced? We confront this terse question, as we delve into the grim truth of global conflict and the unchecked transgressions of international law. Our discourse with Col. Wilkerson is laced with grave topics like the withholding of basic sustenance from entire populations, the forced confinement of these people into specific areas, and the systematic obliteration of their healthcare infrastructure. Drawing parallels with Colen Powell’s declaration of #genocide in southern Sudan, we grapple with the gravity of these actions and the underwhelming impact of such classifications sans significant global support.
We further enrich our narrative with insights from the Jordanian Ambassador to the United States, who shares the heartrending account of an #Israeli attack on a field hospital in #Gaza. The Col. references Sir Nigel Rodley, a luminary in the realm of international law, whose perspective brings into focus the grim reality – a law is only as effective as its enforcement. This episode is a stark glimpse into the often overlooked realities of global conflicts. We invite you to join us, as we question the role of international law, its enforcement, or the pressing lack thereof, in these unsettling situations.
