The Impunity of 21st Century Tyrants

Tragically, the list continues to grow.

Via Capitol Hill Cubans:

The Impunity of 21st Century Tyrants

Syria’s Bashar al-Assad slaughters over 160,000 people and crosses President Obama’s “red-lines.” Why?

Because he can get away with it.

Russia’s Vladimir Putin storms into the Ukraine and annexes the Crimea.  Why?

Because he can get away with it.

Venezuela’s Nicolas Maduro arrests and tortures thousands of student protesters, and murders dozens. Why?

Because he can get away with it.

Iran’s Ayatollah Khameini remains intent on acquiring nuclear weapons.  Why?

Because he can get away with it.

North Korea’s Kim Jong-un fires artillery shells at South Korean ships and conducts nuclear tests. Why?

Because he can get away with it.

Cuba’s Raul Castro smuggles 240 tons of illegal weapons, including artillery shells, to North Korea’s regime. Why?

Because he can get away with it.

Inaction breeds impunity.

Every time the U.S. and its democratic allies succumb to the whims of Russia and China at the U.N. Security Council, the world becomes less free and secure.
