War Crimes in Syria? HuffPosters Scoff

The United Nations only has value to the Huffington Post readership when it criticizes America or Israel, and this latest case is a perfect example of this tendency. As you may have noticed, around 70,000 people have been killed in Syria over the past few years and its probably safe to say that most of them are civilians. So the UN recently declared that suspects who have committed war crimes have been identified, and the Huffington Post covered the news along with the requisite sympathetic headline:

As the article says, these Syrian leaders may face the ICC, which is again something the Huffington Posters love to talk about when the subject is Israel and not Syria.

So how did they react to this news? All of the top favorited comments were whining about how America is not being investigated for war crimes, without exception. Just so you know that I'm not exaggerating, here are some examples:

But remember, anyone who is at all pro-Israel has "dual loyalty" and isn't "pro-America" enough.
