Deset faza genocida

9. Istrebljenje

Dr. Gregory Stanton: Extermination begins, and quickly becomes the mass killing legally called “genocide.” It is “extermination” to the killers because they do not believe their victims to be fully human. When it is sponsored by the state, the armed forces often work with militias to do the killing. Sometimes the genocide results in revenge killings by groups against each other, creating the downward whirlpool-like cycle of bilateral genocide (as in Burundi). Acts of genocide demonstrate how dehumanized the victims have become. Already dead bodies are dismembered; rape is used as a tool of war to genetically alter and eradicate the other group. Destruction of cultural and religious property is employed to annihilate the group’s existence from history. The era of “total war” began in World War II. Firebombing did not differentiate civilians from non-combatants. The civil wars that broke out after the end of the Cold War have also not differentiated civilians and combatants. They result in widespread war crimes. Mass rapes of women and girls have become a characteristic of all modern genocides. All men of fighting age are murdered in some genocides. In total genocides all the members of the targeted group are exterminated. At this stage, only rapid and overwhelming armed intervention can stop genocide. Real safe areas or refugee escape corridors should be established with heavily armed international protection. (An unsafe “safe” area is worse than none at all.) The U.N. Standing High Readiness Brigade, EU Rapid Response Force, or regional forces - should be authorized to act by the U.N. Security Council if the genocide is small. For larger interventions, a multilateral force authorized by the U.N. should intervene. If the U.N. Security Council is paralyzed, regional alliances must act anyway under Chapter VIII of the U.N. Charter or the UN General Assembly should authorize action under the Uniting for Peace Resolution GARes. 377 (1950), which has been used 13 times for such armed intervention. Since 2005, the international responsibility to protect transcends the narrow interests of individual nation states. If strong nations will not provide troops to intervene directly, they should provide the airlift, equipment, and financial means necessary for regional states to intervene

Dr. Gregory Stanton: “Istrebljenje započinje i brzo postaje masovno ubijanje koje se pravno naziva ‘genocidom’. To je ‘istrebljenje’ za ubojice jer one ne vjeruju da su njihove žrtve ljudi. Kada ga sponzorira država, oružane snage često rade s milicijama na ubijanju. Ponekad genocid rezultira osvetničkim ubojstvima skupina koje su jedna protiv druge, stvarajući silazni ciklus dvostranog genocida (kao u Burundiju). Djela genocida pokazuju koliko su žrtve postale dehumanizirane. Već mrtva tijela se kasape; silovanje se koristi kao oruđe rata za genetsko mijenjanje i iskorjenjivanje druge skupine.
