1. #SyriaWarCrimes
We're going to have a decade or more of murder trials and suits for the many Turkish and US politicians and service members who were complicit in the #Rojava #Syria #WarCrimes. We need to identify verify preserve with a post and preserve all the evidence.
2. Someone told me #TawanCeng is "war crimes" in Kurdish. I have some #Afrin posts with that tag. We need to pick a tag and have every photo and story attempt to give geo-location date & time and as much other information as possible. We may want to have a tag for enemy phones
3. like #EP and maybe last four of the phone's serial number. My point is this, we are going to charge everyone who touched this genocide. And the better our evidence is the better the odds of successful prosecutions. I'm open to suggestions and my @timinhonolulu.com

Although process still ongoing, here some (preliminary) thoughts/ideas reflecting lessons from current (s)election of #EU leadership. Thread acknowledges that there is no 'perfect process' & assumes that Lisbon Treaty won't be (fundamentally) reformed in foreseeable future:
(1) #Spitzenkandidaten process suffered damage but it is here to stay. #GenieIsOutOfTheBottle: political parties will stick to it. BUT: process needs to be (continuously) reformed in light of previous experience while adapting to specific circumstances at beginning of new cycle;
(2) Key innovation of #Spitzenkandidaten process: introduction of #TransnationalList incl. all lead candidates. Voters should have 2nd vote to choose 'favourite' candidate from #EU-wide list. Innovation should apply in 2024 -> #EP / COM-P / (European) Council should endorse it.

Hearing many exaggerations these days. So, here an attempt to put things into perspective: (1) yes, (s)election of new #EU leadership involves power politics in #EP & #EUCO & between them, but that's how politics & democracy function – at all levels incl. #EU – get used to it;
(2) yes, #Spitzenkandidaten process not perfect, but it is here to stay although it needs to be reformed before 2024 #EP elections (incl. introduction of #TransnationalList) – 2019 experience should provide lessons to everyone (including European & national political parties);
(3) yes, #EP increasingly runs risk of being sidelined in leadership (s)election process, but majority in Parliament can still agree on common candidate for COM-P, who has a chance to be nominated by #EUCO;
