Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I guess our old friend Donald Rumsfled won't by leaving the USA again for a while :thumright:

    Charges Filed Against Rumsfeld Under the 1984 Convention Against Torture
    The criminal complaint states that because of the failure of authorities in the United States and Iraq to launch any independent investigation into the responsibility of Rumsfeld and other high-level U.S. officials for torture despite a documented paper trail and government memos implicating them in direct as well as command responsibility for torture – and because the U.S. has refused to join the International Criminal Court – it is the legal obligation of states such as France to take up the case.

    In this case, charges are brought under the 1984 Convention against Torture, ratified by both the United States and France, which has been used in France in previous torture cases.

    French courts therefore have an obligation under the Convention against Torture to prosecute individuals responsible for acts of torture if they are present on French territory. This will be the only case filed while he is in the country, which makes the obligations to investigate and prosecute under international law extremely strong.

    Rumsfeld’s presence on French territory gives French courts jurisdiction to prosecute him for having ordered and authorized torture and cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment of detainees in Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib and elsewhere.

    Well that's a couple of countries off his holiday list anyway!
  3. A couple?, maybe he can come visit us and we can send him to Iran for some in depth questioning, like they did with a Canadian citizen, only they sent him to Syria... :threaten:

    I hope the tree he is sitting in, loses all it's leaves and all the goons he's associated with get swept up in it... :rambo:
