President Bashar al-Assad faces indictment by the International Criminal Court as Western leaders were told on Sunday that the Syrian leader could be held to account for the deaths of 120 anti-government protesters.
An influential body of international judges and lawyers called for Mr Assad and his lieutenants to be held to account for Easter weekend attacks in which troops and militamen fire on civilians.
Human Rights Watch, the New York-based advocacy group, also called for action.
Dr. Syed Ali Wasif, professor from Trinity University, says that President Obama would be liable for participating in war crimes under UN International Peace and Security rules because of his support of dictatorial and brutal regimes directly involved in the Bahraini bloodshed.

Yeah, and Bahrain/Arabia/Israel threatened to beat the hell out of Iran if they try to get involved in Bahrain to rescue the Shia communities there (the Bahraini government has been attacking Shia mosques). It's pretty clear that this is a huge proxy war against Iran, a country that has not invaded or harmed other nations in centuries.
edit: Does anybody know whats happening in Lebanon? It had an explosive conflict between the legally elected Hezbollah government and the previous government in late 2010, but was overshadowed by Egypt and I haven't heard anything from Lebanon since January. What is going on there?edit on 26-4-2011 by SmedleyBurlap because: (no reason given)
