I argue that with help of bilion of Chinese;

"In 2004 the atrocity of US troops abusing Iraqi POWs exposed the dark side of human rights performance ofUS.. The scandal shocked the humanity and was condemned by the international community. It is quite ironic that on Feb. 28 of this year, the State Department of the United States once again posed as the 'the world human rights police' and released its Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2004. As in previous years, the reports pointed fingers at human rights situation in more than 190 countries and regions (including China) but kept silent on the US misdeeds in this field. Therefore, the world people have to probe the human rights record behind the Statue of Liberty in the United States,".
The report reviewed the human rights record of the United States in 2004 from six perspectives: Life, liberty and Security of Person; Political Rights and Freedom; Economic, social and Cultural Rights; Racial Discrimination; Rights of Women and Children; and Infringement of Human Rights of Foreign Nationals.
The record quoted the Department of Justice of the United States on Nov. 29, 2004 as saying that in 2003 residents aged 12 and above in the United States came across about 24 million cases of crimes, including 1.38 million violent crimes like murders and robberies, averaging 475 cases per 100,000 people.
"Police violence and infringement of human rights by law enforcement agencies also constitute a serious problem," the record said.
Chinese citizen Zhao Yan was handcuffed and severely beaten onJul. 21, 2004 while she was in the US on a normal business trip.
Boasted as "a paragon of democracy," the United States' democracy is actually manipulated by the rich and malpractice.
Referring the elections in the United States are in fact a contest of money, the record said, the presidential and Congressional elections last year cost nearly four billion US dollars, some one billion US dollars or one third more than that spent in the 2000 elections.
Poverty, hunger and homelessness have been haunting the United States, the world richest country..
The report stressed the United States refuses to ratify the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural rights and took negative attitude to the economic, social and cultural rights of the laborers.
According to the statistics released by the US Census Bureau in2004, the number of Americans in poverty has been climbing for three years. It rose by 1.3 million year-on-year in 2003 to 35.9 million..
Racial discrimination has been deeply rooted in the United States, permeating into every aspects of society. The record said that the colored people are generally poor, with living condition much worse than the white. According to a report of The Guardian of Britain on Oct. 9, 2004, the average netassets of a white family is 88,000 US dollars in 2002, 11 times of a family of Latin American ancestry, or nearly 15 times of a family of African ancestry.
Racial prejudice is ubiquitous in judicial fields, the record said. The proportion for persons of colored races being sentenced or being imprisoned is notably higher than whites.
In accordance with a report published in Nov. 2004 by the US Department of Justice, colored races accounted for over 70 percent of inmates in the United States.
The situation of American women and children was disturbing. The rates of women and children physically or sexually victimized were high.
According to FBI Crime Statistics, in 2003 the United States witnessed 93,233 cases of raping. Virtually 63.2 in every 100,000 women fell victims. Statistics released by the US Labor Departmentin Jan. 2004 showed a woman who worked full time had the median earning of 81.1 percent of that for a man.
. A story released from AP Washington on Oct. 12, 2004 said that about 20 million children lived in "low-income working families" -- with barely enough money to cover basic needs.
Children were also victims of sex crimes. Every year about 400,000 children in the US were forced to engage in prostitution or other sexual dealings on the streets.
The atrocity of US troops abusing Iraqi POWs exposed the infringement of human rights of foreign nationals by the United States..
According to US media like the Newsweek and the Washington Post,as early as several years ago, in US forces' prisons in Afghanistan, interrogators used various kinds of torture tools foracquiring confession, causing many deaths.
The International Committee of the Red Cross believed that abuse of detained Iraqis in the notorious Abu Ghraib Prison was not a single case and it was a systematic behavior.
The report pointed out that the United States frequently commits wanton slaughters during external invasions and military attacks. A survey on Iraqi civilian deaths, based on the natural death rate before the war, estimates that the US-led invasion might have led to 100,000 more deaths in the country, with most victims being women and children.
Jointly designed and conducted by researchers at Johns Hopkins University, Columbia University and the Al-Mustansiriya University in Baghdad, the survey also finds that the majority of the additional, unnatural deaths since the invasion were caused by violence, while air strikes from the coalition forces were the main factor to blame for the violence-caused deaths.
Despite tons of problems in its own human rights, the United States continues to stick to its belligerent stance, wantonly trample on the sovereignty of other countries, and constantly stage tragedies of human rights infringement in the world.
At last, the report said that the US should reflect on its erroneous behavior on human rights and take its own human rights problems seriously instead of indulging itself in publishing the "human rights country report" to censure other countries unreasonably. http://news.xinhuane...ent_2644016.htm

God is always is on winner side, but it necessary means that there morality is.

As Chinese Report correctly assesses the miserable respect US for human Rights, still US has , and maybe because of it ,
the high standard of living between some part of US society.

I believe that humanity has everything with values of individuals when situation demands the sharing one piece of bread between of plenty..

Well all that details on the US is consistent with what I said.
When the US a nation with morals and principles it became great
and now it is turning into a madrabid dog its own people are on the skids to the biggest banana republic that world has ever known.

Its mandate from money-power is destruction so the world will be rebuilt by maniacs. Question is how far will the American people be pushed before they decide its time for another war of independance.

The war of words against Iran is to cover the fact that the US is
bankrupt in its propoganda war on Iran. Iran is cooperating and allowing impromptu inspections. Everyone who has made promises have reneged. The chairman of the UN Atomic agency has stated that Iran isnt guilty of secret games.

The world is worse inspite of the UN since it was built. It wasnt built by the grass-roots of the planet but by the maniacs who are destroying the planet.
Soneone should do a comparison between the UN, its power, budget etc with a state, eg the US and the UE to get a true perspective on the toad. Given the power within and without can anyone expect the world to get good enough that the Un can be reduced to one or two key causes. Not likely, can you shrink
Frankenstein to a gardener or butler?

On Tuesday, 250 Pakistani and South African troops used armoredvehicles and three helicopters to attack militias who had killed the Bangladeshi soldiers and wounded 11 more.
They also destroyed two militia camps.

Do you recall any expected date for the transfer of Settlers in Gaza and the West Bank Woj?

I wonder if it is same or close to the June date re Iran.

If Syria is badly hurt I expect that they will have taken a similar plan as Hussein. We havent seen clearly what Hussein had planned after the US occupation, although the general war may be part of it. There is still a lot of hardware that they had that hasnt surfaced yet. If Syria looses its fixed military assets like
airfields etc their area of operation is very large if they are digging in in Lenanon. Add to that the Republican Guard that may yet be largely in waiting, the only safe place to move may be in the air. The oil pipelines will get closed by one side or the other and bring Europe to a holt which may be the only way for the zionists to force Nato into getting involved in the middle east.
Outside of just knocking off key instalations in Iran it will bring China and Russia into defending Iran. China will have more excuse the US originally claimed re the securing of vital oil supplies.

If there is a general war and the Israelis are seperated from the
Palestinians most of the Palistinians could be wiped out holocaust style and some of the Iraqi cities and Damascus. The Middle East would/could never be the same again. I would expect the Saudi Royals to deposed as well.

It probably has never made it to the general news but Israel Shamir reports has sent troops on missions in various parts of Africa.
It could only be the NWO that are behind the terrorism
and wars toi depopulate and secure resources.

Truman sold Arabs;
While President Franklin D. Roosevelt appeared to be sympathetic to the Jewish cause, he send to Arabs letter assuring them that he will not agree on participation of Palestine, and he die in week after.( Home of Saudii).
When President Harry S. Truman took office, he made clear that his sympathies were with the Jews and accepted the Balfour Declaration, explaining that it was in keeping with former President Woodrow Wilson's principle of "self determination." At midnight on May 14, 1948, the Provisional Government of Israel proclaimed the new State of Israel.
On that same date the United States, in the person of President Truman, recognized the provisional Jewish government as de facto authority of the new Jewish state (de jure recognition was extended on January 31.
Truman released his recognition statement to the press without notifying Arabs first. On May 15, 1948, the Arab states issued their response statement and Arab armies invaded Israel and the first Arab-Israeli war began.

Lebanon was invaded by Israel in 1982.

Truman was the eldest of three children of John A. and Martha E. Truman; his father was a mule trader ..http://www.britannica.com/search?ct=&query=Truman+&go_button.x=10&go_button.y=3

Since 1976, Syrian troops have been stationed in Lebanon, ostensibly in a peacekeeping capacity. Over the past decade, Syria and Israel have held occasional peace talks over the return of the Golan Heights.

Today Israel makes threats to Iran.

Chavez Warns U.S. of Oil Risk If His Life Threatened Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez warned that an attempt to assassinate him would result in the cutting of oil supplies to the U.S., which imports 15 percent of its fuel needs from the Latin American country.
``The Venezuelan people will stop even one drop of oil from going to the U.S. if there is any attempt made on my life,'' Chavez said in New Delhi today. ``But we want to keep selling to the U.S. because the people there need oil,''
Chavez, 50, has accused President George W. Bush of backing efforts to remove him from office. He has also threatened to cut off oil to the U.S. in case of an invasion or blockade.
The U.S. endorses an assassination plan, Chavez told reporters at a press conference in New Delhi. He said he'd hold the U.S. president responsible for any attack.
Chavez reached India yesterday, seeking newer markets for the country's oil to back up his vow to lessen the country's dependence on U.S. sales.
The country sends about 60 percent of its daily exports of 2.2 million barrels to the U.S. Venezuela is the world's fifth- largest oil exporter and the third-largest producer in the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries.
The Venezuelan president's visit to India is part of a four- country tour that began on Feb. 28. He is visiting Uruguay, Qatar and France, apart from the Asia's fourth-largest economy. Chavez is accompanied by ministers of foreign affairs, light industry and commerce, science and technology, environment and natural resources, energy, health and information and communications.
U.S. Plot
Chavez, stepping up allegations the U.S. is plotting his assassination, said in Uruguay on March 2, the plans include making his death appear to be a suicide.
He began accusing the U.S. of planning his death in January after U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said the former army lieutenant colonel was a ``negative force'' in Latin America and called some of his government's actions ``very deeply troubling.''
Relations between the two governments have remained tense since Chavez said the U.S. helped plan a failed two-day coup against him in 2002.

Marta Sahag?n de Fox, Mexico's first lady, revealed that the $7.5m in assets amassed by a foundation come from a the Coca-Cola Foundation.


Mrs Fox had not spoken publicly before about this small US foundation, which she chairs but which is run from the home of its executive vice-president.
Opposition legislators, who have launched investigations into her Mexican foundation, Vamos M?xico, this week also threatened to investigate her US operation.
Mrs Fox says it is completely legal. http://news.ft.com/c...000e2511c8.html

What in democracy the foreign foundations are really for?
Mrs Kwasniewska wife of Polish president (good US ally) also is famous for her charitable ????? foundations.:D

What US could reap from seeds of US democracy.
The trouble with democracy is that, given a free choice, electorates will often make the "wrong" one, opting for whichever option best challenges the status quo.
In many parts of the Middle East, that means the Islamists.
