Is there anyway to charge the US? How is there not a mechanism to hold the US accountable for anything it does overtly or covertly? Is there a way to remove the US from the security council?

I’m a US citizen frustrated by the ineffectual nature of the UN.

My Fellow Liberians: accountability is needed now more than ever

Ken Harper - Together Liberia
Saturday, March 10, 2018 - 16:21

In 2017, for the first time in history, voices of victims of the first Liberian civil war were heard in the criminal trial of Mohammed Jabbateh, aka Jungle Jabbah, a former Liberian warlord residing in Philadelphia USA. The Jabbateh trial showed that justice can be achieved without violence and it raised hope for thousands of Liberians. But the lack of accountability for grave crimes is an obstacle to peace and stability, and a potential cause for future conflict that must be addressed adequately. Now more than ever we need to make sure that Liberians are well-informed of the trials coming up outside the country.

A philosopher once said: 'there is no peace without justice'. Justice in Liberia will mean lasting peace, an assurance for stability, a deterrent to future offenders and peace of mind to victims. Let those war Lord's in Liberia and squanders be procecuted.
