Its hard to see how R2P would not apply in the case of Syria, where more than 100,000 people have been killed, 5million displaced from their homes, 2million refugees sent fleeing and numerous war crimes and crimes against humanity committed, including with chemical weapons , according to independent human rights monitors and the United Nations. A recent study for the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum concluded that genocidal violence against Christian, Sunni, Alawite and other groups is possible if the conflict escalates. Yet there is one person who has studiously avoided invoking R2P: President Obama. When making the case for airstrikes, he has stressed the need to enforce the worldwide ban on the use and production of chemical weapons. When theres a breach this brazen of a norm this important, and the international community is paralyzed and frozen and doesnt act, then that norm begins to unravel, Obama warned in a Friday news conference at the G-20 summit in St. Petersburg. Yet the chemical weapons ban is not the only international norm at stake in the Syrian civil war.

Wealth may explain many of the buyers’ abilities to purchase a house in cash as New Jersey had one of the highest median incomes in the nation as of 2011. 8. Ohio > Median list price: $118,900 (the lowest) > Pct. institutional sales: 7.0% (23rd highest) Ohio had among the highest rates for distressed property sales in July, at 16% of all homes sold. A short sale means the prior owner’s mortgage balance exceeds the sales value of the home. Additionally, 15% of homes sold in the state were bank-owned, more than all but three other states. Like many states where home buyers are paying all cash, the number of distressed home sales had an impact on the state’s median home price. Ohio had the nation’s lowest median list price in July, at $118,900. Cash sales were widespread in some of the state’s largest cities, representing 44% of all purchases in the Cleveland area, and 47% in Cincinnati. 7. Arizona > Median list price: $192,500 (22nd highest) > Pct. institutional sales: 14.6% (3rd highest) Fifteen percent of available properties in July were purchased by institutional investors, more than in all but two other states.

Fri Sep 6, 2013 7:16pm EDT United States Bears Legal, Moral Responsibility to Act Immediately to Stop Imminent Massacre at Camp Ashraf PR Newswire WASHINGTON, Sept. 6, 2013 WASHINGTON, Sept. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ –The US Committee for Camp Ashraf Residents (USCCAR) has learned of information indicating Iraq’s Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, directed by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei through Quds Force Commander Qassem Soleimani, is preparing to commit another massacre in Camp Ashraf imminently. The US Government must act swiftly and decisively now to warn Maliki against any attacks, secure the release of 7 residents who were taken hostage on September 1st by the Iraqi Forces, and condemn the Maliki Government for last Sunday’s massacre. Emboldened by the utter absence of a firm reaction by the US government and President Obama to the massacre of 52 unarmed residents of Camp Ashraf last Sunday, Maliki and his Iranian cohorts intend to continue with their initial plan of exterminating all Camp Ashraf residents and execute the survivors. The plan’s next phase is to massacre the residents of Camp Liberty. The Maliki Government has viewed the US Government’s inexplicable and cowardly silence and inaction since last Sunday as a green light for “finishing the job” at camps Ashraf and Liberty. Since 2004, US Administrations, time after time, have given their written commitments to protect the unarmed and defenseless residents of Camp Ashraf who were given the “Protected Persons” status under the Fourth Geneva Convention by the United States. The Iraqi Government has given an ultimatum to the residents of Camp Ashraf until tomorrow. The US government is undoubtedly aware of Iraq’s plan for the impending massacre and, therefore, its refusal to act would make it complicit in any further bloodshed. The families of the residents of Camp Ashraf hold the United States Government directly responsible for any harm done to their loved ones. As many Members of Congress have said over the past week, any US aid to Iraq must be cut off immediately until and unless Iraq adheres to its international commitments and until all the perpetrators of massacre at Camp Ashraf are identified and brought to justice.
