Kafr Shams and Umm al-Awsaj under army
The SAA captures Tel Harra
army enter Harra town
SAA liberate Tayhah
Even if it was Syria's fault (It wasn't) there is no way any judgment would matter because of Sovereign Immunity. It's like Lawyers for these people are just trying to get some publicity. I don't understand why these Judges even allow these cases to proceed knowing that people cannot sue governments unless that government was in breach of a contract signed with that party involving business.
I thought the US recently signed in a new law that quite severely undermines Sovereign Immunity
John B. Bellinger III, former Legal Adviser of the Department of State warned that the bill could encourage other countries to enact measures that limit sovereign immunity, including that of the United States. Law professor Curtis Bradley at Duke University told ABC News that the bill could result in U.S. citizen lawsuits against potentially any country. Bradley also said that it could lead to legal response in other countries against U.S. activities such as drone strikes and military aid to Israel.
I don't think it actually passed, just that it was suggested? If it is the case that it did, I'm concerned for the sanctity of international norms.
Oh it passed alright. Every single congressman voted for it so Obama couldnt veto it. There are now a few lawsuits against Saudi Arabia going through the system. And yes it definitely opens up pandoras box.
Can I sue America for my family that was killed by their rebels in alhaffa?
They would have to aprove the suit. Sovereign Immunity counts even for the US government in US court.
This is by far the most stupid thing I have heard in while. Even the beheading was done by a UK national.
