    US claims human rights a top priority

    According to this report, from the Washington Post, the Bush regime are now claiming it wants to make human rights a top priority in dealing with other nations. Perhaps before they decide to focus on other nations, they should take a good look at the human rights violations and war crimes committed by US citizens, maybe Bush himself should rescind that Executive Order which authorises abuse and torture, then perhaps he can turn his attention to the so called "rendition" of "terror suspects" to countries which routinely use torture to get "evidence", then maybe he could order that cluster bombs should never again be used in civilian areas, that hospitals and schools should be safeguarded, not raided by occupation forces, after he's dealt with those matters, perhaps he'd then like to take a look at the use of depleted uranium, and the matter of US troops opening fire on anything that moves, and the use of napalm in Iraq. Also, the Bush regime would be doing Latin America a favour by shutting down the now renamed School of the Americas (or the terrorist training camp at Fort Benning) it could also decide not to trade in arms with countries with appalling human rights records, and i'm sure others could think of a few more things to add to that list, before the Bush regime can even consider taking the moral high ground on human rights. Under the rogue regime in Washington, the US has absolutely no business lecturing any other country. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
