I'm so tired of people just spouting off antiAmerican trash and ignoring facts, engaging in open hypocrisy and resulting to namecalling when people
disagree with them. Why is the US so hated? Because the US sticks it's perverbial nose in everyone elses business. Right? They won't mind their
All people have basic human rights. What are they? Hmmm, that's a great question. So what are human rights violations. It is, in a sense, to
treat them as if they are less than human and undeserving of respect and dignity. Examples are acts typically deemed "crimes against humanity,"
including genocide, torture, slavery, rape, enforced sterilization or medical experimentation, and deliberate starvation. Because these policies are
sometimes implemented by governments, limiting the unrestrained power of the state is an important part of international law. Underlying laws that
prohibit the various "crimes against humanity" is the principle of nondiscrimination and the notion that certain basic rights apply universally.
So should the most powerful free country in the world intervene when these things happen? I think so. Apparently some of you think we ought to mind
our own business. And many of you want someone to violate our rights so we'll stop "sticking our nose where it doesn't belong." You want us to
get what's coming to us. For all the terrible things you accuse the US of, most of which are not true, what is widely ignored are the horrors going
Omar al-Bashir-You ever heard of him? Don't see a lot of rants about him being almost done with the Darfur villages and moving on to slaughtering
refugee camps. His estimated body count is over 180,000 murdered innocents.
Kim jong Il-THe us is still wrose huh? Did you know the average NK 7 year old is 8 inches shorter than a SK of the same age? I guess it sucks to be
a 7 year old in one of the reeducation camps. But at least there are more than a quarter million folks in the camps to be friends with.
Than Shwe-Ever been to Burma? Take your kids. They get forced into the military before they stop wetting the bed. You like working at the Burma
post office? Good resigning is punishable by death in many situations.
Islam Karimov- Uzbeckistan? Did you hear about the town meeting he called to hear out grievances? 10,000 men, women and children. He killed them
all. Then he made a law where he and his entire family were immune from prosecution forever.
Hu Jintao-Who? Hu. That's Hu. Err who. Let's see 300,000 in reeducation labor camps. 150 million who live on less than a dollar a day. No
minimum wage. Under 5% of criminal trials have witnesses. The conviction rate is 99.7%. No private tv or radio stations. Censorship and monitoring
of phone calls, texts, faxes and emails. Oh, only one child with a permit 1st though. YOur pregnant without a permit or for a 2nd? Umm let's rip
the baby out when you are a week from the due date and cut the child in half while you watch.
King Abdullah- Wow Saudi Arabia. If you live there you have to be a mUslim. If your a women you have to be covered and can't be in public with a
male who isn't related to you. Women, I know we gripe about your driving in the US but the Saudis dont allow you to drive period. ooh, don't
forget torture is widespread and illegal.
Saparmurat Niyazov- Where the hell is Turkmenistan? IDK but if you critisize him or his policies it's an automatic treason conviction. examples of
his government-by-whim include bans on car radios, lip-synching and playing recorded music on TV or at weddings. Niyazov also has closed all national
parks and shut down rural libraries. He launched an attack on his nation’s health-care system, firing 15,000 health-care workers and replacing most
of them with untrained military conscripts. He announced the closing of all hospitals outside the capital and ordered Turkmenistan’s physicians to
give up the Hippocratic Oath and to swear allegiance to him instead.
Seyed Ali Khamane’i-What, Iran with no aquamanjihad? The country is really run by the 12 MAN guardian council. They can VETO ANY LAW FROM THE
ELECTED GOVERNMENT. There is no free press in Iran. Gays are routinely executed. Not to mention the widespread abuses against women.
Muammar al-Qaddafi-Did you know 90% of the population of Lybia is under surveillance? Did you know if you are a Lybian and are convicted of
critisizing Qaddafi that you get the death penalty? Did you know that your friends and family(just like the AT@T plan) can be punished too>
Bashar al-Assad-Oh sweet Syria, EMERGENCY RULE was declared 37 yearsago. Still going strong. At least there are only 38 kinds of acceptable torture
in Syria. Does assasinating the former Lebanese PM count as a violation?
Pervez Musharraf-Oh no, not Pakistan. Pervez is an open supporter of the Taliban. Appointed himself president(was military head) in 2001 then faked
an election 2002 to legitimize himself.
Meles Zenawi-Ethiopia- Shot a few dozen unarmed demonstraters. Detained 10,000 politicians.
Boungnang Vorachith-Laos Nice a communist- lets share. Oh wait 75% of the population lives on less than $2 per day. No freedom of exspression,
speech or religon.
Tran Duc Luong-Vietnam Oh he's not so bad, he just controls and censors all media and made it a crime to critisize the communist party. He's also
one of the worst supressionists of religon in the world.
Remember Iraq before we went in? Widespread torture. Destroying food sources of rivals. Murder, assasinations, chemical weapons... And before you
say "what chemical weapons?" look up Halabja, nerve gassing civillians. Illegal to gather as a group un;less you were supporting the government.
Women couldn't leave the country without a male escort. Slaughtering the Kurds.
Afghanistan-Women were forced to wear the burqa in public.They were allowed neither to work nor to be educated after the age of eight, and until then
were permitted only to study the Qur'an. They were not allowed to be treated by male doctors unless accompanied by a male chaperon, which led to
illnesses remaining untreated. They faced public flogging in the street, and public execution for violations of the Taliban's laws. Yup the US
screwed that place up.
Women are opressed and treated as substandard human beings all over the globe. Did you know a few years ago in 2001 7000 women were murdered because
of inadaquate dowery payments?
Did you know in africa, in almost every country several million girls a year suffer forced genital mutilation?
Did you know in the most middle eastern countries compensation marriges are widespread? Where young girls are given away to settle disputes?
Did you know in Thailand that there are 35,000 sex slaves?
Over the past 10 years in the Congo there have been almost half a million gang rapes?
Where is slavery legal today? Sudan and Niger.
Where is near slavery ok? WHich means bonded labor and trafficking of humans is allowed or not enforced. UAE, Indonesia, Nepal, Pakistan and India.
As far as trafficking being allowed to function : Bolivia, Burma, Cambodia, Cuba, Ecuador, Jamaica, Kuwait, North Korea, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sudan,
Togo, United Arab Emirates, and Venezuela.
That's what happens when people aren't free. That's why the US fights for democracy. That's why they fight to free people. What would happen if
we never intervened anywhere? Name one country that recieved no benefit from America? The US has done more for human rights and freedom across the
globe than anyone else. They provided more aid across the globe than any 2 countries. Nobody is perfect, but for all the USA bashing you'd think
Milosovich was ruunning our nation.
