Jim Molan: Accuses Assange of Being a National Security Threat When He is A War Criminal

In the Australian 60 minutes where they interviewed Julian Assange’s father, John Shipton, they also interviewed former major general Jim Molan. It seems to have become a theme for former war criminals who were exposed like Jim to cry about national security as he did in the interview ( video seen here).Jim Molan has blood on his hands according to the article seen in the Australia Independent:

For context, Jim Molan’s name rings alarm bells for many thousands of people. He is known colloquially as “The Butcher of Fallujah” for his time leading the Coalition assault in Iraq against that and several other Sunni cities, including Najaf and Samarra.
When the bombing began in October 2004 (both planned and orchestrated by Molan himself, as the third-highest ranking Coalition officer in Iraq at that time) the city remained home to approximately 30,000 to 50,000 civilians – many of whom had been prevented from fleeing, others who were simply too old or infirm to make the journey – and their families, who refused to abandon them. Once the bombing began, all routes out of Fallujah were sealed off by Coalition forces, leaving everyone who remained inside trapped and unable to leave.

After the first wave of bombing, the Washington Post reported that ‘electricity and water were cut off to the city just as a fresh wave of [bombing] strikes began’, which is explicitly forbidden under Article 54 of the Geneva Convention, which reads:

1. Starvation of civilians as a method of warfare is prohibited.

2. It is prohibited to attack, destroy, remove or render useless objects indispensable to the survival of the civilian population, such as foodstuffs, agricultural areas for the production of foodstuffs, crops, livestock, drinking water installations and supplies and irrigation works, for the specific purpose of denying them for their sustenance value to the civilian population or to the adverse Party, whatever the motive, whether in order to starve out civilians, to cause them to move away, or for any other motive.

Furthermore, the Red Cross was blocked from accessing the city with much needed supplies for the citizens such as food, water and medical supplies. Molan literally held countless lives in his hands and didn’t follow international war protocol but chose to bomb hospitals full of unarmed patients seeking treatment for their injuries. His blind hate for Muslims was apparent in these bombings.Stated in the same article:

In addition to this, Coalition Forces have been linked to the use of white phosphorous, a chemical weapon that rapidly eats away at the skin, flesh and bone of anyone who comes into contact with it — another violation of the Geneva Convention.

Somehow, this butcher of innocents has become an Australian senator. Regardless, the brutality of this murderer has viciously attacked Assange simply because he is a war criminal with something to hide. His past automatically makes his opinion on these matters null and void.
