On US violations of human rights against other nations
I’ll quote the first and last sentences of the report:
The State Department of the United States released its Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2011 on May 24, 2012. As in previous years, the reports are full of over-critical remarks on the human rights situation in nearly 200 countries and regions as well as distortions and accusations concerning the human rights cause in China. However, the United States turned a blind eye to its own woeful human rights situation and kept silent about it. The Human Rights Record of the United States in 2011 is hereby prepared to reveal the true human rights situation of the United States to people across the world and urge the United States to face up to its own doings.
The above-mentioned facts are but a small yet illustrative enough fraction of the US’ dismal record on its human rights situation. The US’ own tarnished human rights record has made it in no condition, on a moral, political or legal basis, to act as the world’s “human rights justice,” to place itself above other countries and release the Country Reports on Human Rights Practices year after year to accuse and blame other countries. We hereby advise the US government once again to look squarely at its own grave human rights problems, to stop the unpopular practices of taking human rights as a political instrument for interference in other countries’ internal affairs, smearing other nations’ images and seeking its own strategic interests, and to cease using double standards on human rights and pursuing hegemony under the pretext of human rights.
Some of the numbers were a bit too obviously used to make the States look bad and are most likely based on type-I error inflation, but a lot of it does have some truth to it.
