mod3072: Between the War on Drugs and the War on Terrorism, the US lost the high ground on basic human rights a long time ago. Oh sure, we still like to lecture the rest of the world about their abuses, but we turn a blind eye to our own.


But we are a head of the curve on the important things like gay marriage and abortion clinics on every street corner and in every school.. You are worrying about the little stuff like property rights, free speech, religious freedom, privacy and due process.

FLMountainMan: As expected, one-third of the thread is false equivalencies (typically said by the same folks who think any criticism of Obama is "both sides are bad" nonsense), and one third is anti-UN DERP.


After reading your compelling and passionate argument, I am convinced that the UN is in fact a credible advocate for human rights.

Rigger1955: Generation_D: Walker: The UN is a joke, the UN has always been a joke, the UN will always be a joke.

/non-story, business as usual

You think helping to prevent a WW III for 60 years and counting is joke worthy? OK.

Citations required.


So .... you're suggesting that there WAS a WWIII in the last 60 years?

China and Saudi arabia have the death penalty, they torture people, have sham trials, and kill people with drones. They have no business being on a human rights body!

At least the Swiss, Bolivian, and Tajikistani submarines can have screen doors.
