    This one is too vague for me to agree or disagree with. In our area, developers are taking away our last vestiges of open space and building McMansions practically on top of each other. In this case, building seems wrong to me, and your statement does not hold true.

    Most of the statements read together sound like a platform for Socialism, which IMO is in itself a crime against humanity.

    Obviously the definition of "crime against humanity" eludes you.

    Crime against humanity
    A crime against humanity is a term in international law that refers to acts of murderous persecution against body of people, as being the criminal offence above all others. The term was first used in the preamble of the Hague Convention of 1907, and subsequently used during the Nuremberg trials as a charge for actions such as the Holocaust which did not violate a specific treaty but were deemed to require punishment.
    The term has been criticized for being extremely vague and for being politically defined. For example, Nazi attempts to eliminate certain ethnic groups are widely recognized as having been crimes against humanity, yet Soviet and American persecutions of certain groups are not. The systematic persecution of African people by the South African apartheid government was recognized as a crime against humanity by the United Nations in 1966.

    In its Article 7, the treaty establishing the International Criminal Court in 2003 says:

    For the purpose of this Statute, "crime against humanity" means any of the following acts when committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against any civilian population, with knowledge of the attack: (a) Murder; (b) Extermination; (c) Enslavement; ... http://www.preventgenocide.org/law/icc/statute/part-a.htm#2

    http://www.reference.com/browse/wiki/Crime_against_humanity

    After you have read and had someone with a functioning brain translate the words for you, you will then possess the ammunition to amend your rambling bullshit above where needed.

    If you would prefer to cut the chase without benefit of educating yourself -- if THAT is possible -- just delete your post.

    So, it's a crime against humanity to be a great country when much of the rest of the world wallows around in its own filth, yet it's also a crime against humanity to try to clean up the dirtpiles some people call countries. Apparently, you have to be dirt poor to not be guilty of a crime against humanity.

    the farmer should give some money to trader and have him invest it

    It is a crime against humanity that the riches nation in the world has the biggest debt owed to other nations of the world.
    so you don't want us to spend any money?

    It is a crime against humanity that one nation that is less than 5% of the world’s population consumes 25% of the world’s energy.
    china should really slow down

    It is a crime against humanity to spend so much on the military industrial complex and so little on humanitarian aid for the less fortunate.
    so you want us to spend more money and go further into debt?

    It is a crime against humanity for one nation to go to war with another nation over miss-construed information and or lies.

    It is a crime against humanity that a government spends more on large corporate welfare than social welfare programs.
    so you want to go further into debt?

    It is a crime against humanity that General Motors spends 1500 dollar per car they produce on health insurance for their employees.

    So, if I follow your mind, USA will pay the price fir invading Iraq. USA signed the UN Charta. USA respected the international laws and critizised the countries unsing force, before. Does the term" pacta sunt servanda" sound to you ?
    Here I agree with David2004, it was a crime. Not necessary against humanity, but at least, it was a crime against peace, by launching and leading an offensive war. Here youcan't disagree. (for your memories : the Nzais were accused and declared guilty for the same crime in Nuremberg.)

    If you think like that, sad for you..."we have a lot, but the bloody dictatorships have more than us, so, all goes well !"...
    A great nation has not to do better than the others, the mostr powerful nation has to do THE BEST.
    So, have less prisonners than North Korea os really not a thing you can be proud.




    And the fucking religious fanatics should, no, have to leave us quiet, instead of teaching to children some bullshit. No no, i don't speak of the muslim fanatics, the Islamists, in the coranic schools, I speak of the american fanatics in some States, teaching that Earth is 6000 years old, teaching that the Bible hold the truth, and that the scientific theory are heretics.
    Imagine after the ancient pupils of these theachers : they won't have the smallest culture in science. And a 6-years old european would know more things than them.

    Religion can be teached, when it stay at the place of the Religion. And it shouldn't cross the border of the other domains.


    USA bring democracy...well... and a Constitution... well...

    And several thousands of deads, thousands of destroyed buildings, a civil war...

    here I agree with David2004 : a great nation can't hide itself behind the argument "we bring democracy and destroy a bloody tyran" when the country is in the deepest shit ever done.
    Be an adult, not a child, and assume the consequences of your acts.

    It has been said in the American mass media it is not a crime for a United States government leader to lie to the mass media or the American people. Yet if any leader in the private sector in office lies to the American public there is a whole host of criminal charges. The Bible pushing conservative politicians and pundits in defense of the Bush Administration will say it is only illegal to lie before a Grand Jury not to the American public while in government office. It is this kind of hypocrisy that has the majority of the people at ends wit. Many people and nations are losing confidence in the direction of the United States government policies and actions.

    Another example is the United Nations Oil for Food scandal that was imposed and over seen by the United States government. Approximately seven billion dollars of un-sanctions trade dollars that are mostly accounted for and are making global headlines. Then just in the first year of the Iraq War under Paul Bremer approximately nine billion dollars goes missing. The trail to where the money went is growing cold with very little American media coverage. The informed people of the world know about both stories but see progress in the solving of one of them.

    In a quest to go to war with Iraq the Neocons have manipulate the truth to make their case for war. http://www.israeleconomy.org/strat1.htm The military industrial complex, oil industry and the State of Israel have greatly profited from this war.
