ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The terrorist army of the Islamic State has committed a variety of crimes and atrocities, including the killing of Americans and various racial and religious groups, and the killing and mistreatment of hundreds of thousands of innocents.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, the armed forces of the Russian Federation and pro-Russian proxies in eastern Ukraine have committed a variety of crimes and atrocities, including the mistreatment of prisoners of war and the killing and mistreatment of hundreds of the inhabitants of eastern Ukraine. They are also responsible for the killing of hundreds of passengers on Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17.

The evidence to support each of these allegations is abundant and irrefutable, which leads to the following questions: Why has President Obama failed to lay a case before the International Criminal Court seeking indictments against the known leaders or key figures of the Islamic State for war crimes? Why has Mr. Obama failed to lay a case before the ICC seeking indictments against Mr. Putin, the leaders of the Russian Federation and the federation’s pro-Russian proxies in eastern Ukraine seeking indictments for war crimes?

That was good enough for the Nazis. These people are no better.
