Revolutions: Where are the international laws, the human rights, the sanctions, their advocates and their implementors?

What world are we living in? In the name of revolution or curbing the same, people are dying, harassed, sexually abused and all the world doing is to talk about it!

Where are the international laws, the human rights, the sanctions, their advocates and their implementors? Where are the international tribunals? Why do all these good systems come into action after the fact? How many times are we going to let the likes of Rwanda genocide and bloody revolutions in Eastern Europe and/or Central America be repeated without timely intervention?

The sad reality is that before any international law or treaty is signed, their loopholes are worked out by the non-cooperative States. Even today, while the world is celebrating the revolution in Egypt, the death toll is still rising, same goes for Bahrain, Iran, Libya and other countries in the region.

I do not support any particular party or group in any of these countries but I strongly believe that the common people and the mainstream ideology must be able to lead a nation. A mother and a child mustn't be afraid of their dear one killed by their own governments. It is too much to ask for?

The world is smaller now, it is easier to get the proof of brutality and to send it to the right places. And we know many daring people are doing that but some of us who have the power and authority to take the action are stuck between our own agendas and justice.

Human Rights activists will have to get smarter, quicker and more and more neutral to save human dignity and basic human rights. We know until human beings are not treated with dignity and do not enjoy their basic rights, there will be no long lasting peace!
