Countries responsible for some of the world’s worst human rights abuses are watching the United States act like they do. From China came “a comment piece published by the state-run Xinhua news service on Monday excoriating the US for the ‘racial divide’ that ‘still remains a deeply-rooted chronic disease that keeps tearing US society apart, just as manifested by the latest racial riot in Missouri’.”

Russia Today, the state-owned broadcaster in Moscow, has likewise been reporting on events in Ferguson via a live blog, while Iran’s leader, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, has taken to Twitter to peddle a more insidious and conspiratorial line, blaming the riots in Ferguson on Jewish control of the US government.


Egypt called for restraint in the United States.

The country’s foreign ministry told the state-run MENA news agency that US authorities should deal with the protests in the city of Ferguson in accordance with US and international stardards, the report on Tuesday said.

Egyptian foreign ministry spokesman, Badr Abdel-Aty, hoped investigations would reveal the truth about “Mike Brown’s murder”, it added, referring to the black US teenager whose killing by a white police officer triggered protests.[su_sky_ad]

    Imagine how this would be written about by the press if it were in any other country. A government unleashing chemical weapons on its own citizens. Chemical weapons that they’re not even allowed to use in war, as per the Geneva Protocol.

      We’re claiming the “brown people” exception. Back in the day, it was the hippie exception.

    You knew this was coming the first time an MRAP showed up and telescopic 30 cal weapons were pointed at peaceful sitting demonstrators. This will be impossible to defend when ever something similar happens anywhere else in the future.

    For America, it’s do as I say, not as I do.

    Does the author wants to say that the FREQUENT incidents like this and almost daily killing of innocent people by gun-related violence should not be criticized, or rather praised because it happens in US?

      No, he’s saying that it’s sad that things have deteriorated in the US to the point that countries like this are able to criticize us, and have a legitimate point to make, up to a point.

    And it’s not getting any better, these people need to be removed from duty.

    i knew we were in trouble when Amnesty International put boots on the ground to officially observe events in Ferguson…

    but, now that AG Holder has came and left, and last night was the best night yet, in terms of unrest…i’m hoping a moment of calm will descend…Michael Brown will have his funeral on Monday–people are exhausted–physically, spiritually, emotionally…a restorative weekend is sorely needed…
