Dr. Nicholaos van Dam's presentation was first rate. He did an amazing job at outlining the many aspects of Middle Eastern issues which are generally not appreciated in North America.

Ambassador van Dam gave an excellent presentation outlining the complex and multi-faceted dimensions of the civil war in Syria. The definition of "war crimes" however as he presented seemed to be of little value. To paraphrase; "Any time a civilian area is attacked there will be collateral damage and war crimes will be committed".

This presentation was outstanding, with the subject matter much more focused on the on-going Middle East situation than with "war crimes". Consistent with other presentations by foreign diplomats or experts, Ambassador Van Dam's introductory remarks were read from a script and became monotonous. He should have rather provided us with a succinct "story line", not more than five points, focused on "war crimes". Food for thought regarding advice to provide for future WACD speakers.
