BEIJING — China’s Communist Party, a regime with a long-documented history of using torture, seized upon the U.S. Senate report Wednesday to accuse the United States of hypocrisy for presenting itself as a bastion of human rights. A correspondent for China Central Television, Wang Guan, called the Senate Intelligence Committee report documenting CIA torture of suspected…

    I have been saying for a while that the USA is hypocritical with its finger pointing at other countries for human rights violations when our own country has the same problem

      We-ell, it’s a question of degree, and the torture program implemented by the Bush administration was taken lock, stock and barrel from the torture visited upon American POWs held by the North Koreans and also interrogated by Red Chineses.
      But still, your point is a good one.
      I’ve been posting for the last couple of days about how, during the Cold War, we used to club the commies on having officially sanctioned torture and now here we are…..

    Sadly America does have a dark history concerning human rights like…

    Slaughter of native American Indians
    imprisoning Japanese American citizens during WWII
    dropping of atomic bombs on Japan
    civil rights violations against blacks and other minorities

    No…America is not the democracy it was intended to be and has a long way to go to live up to that promise…

      Although the death and injuries caused by the use of atomic weapons against civilians is regrettable w/o examining the complete history of the war w/Japan condemning their use (to me) is unwarranted.
      It is estimated 1 million or more casualties would have resulted in a full scale invasion of Japan. W/o giving us an alternative condemning use of those weapons is pointless.

        I think the 1 million was the estimated number of US forces casualties? I think the estimated casualties for the Japanese people was somewhere between 10 to 20 million just in the invasion phase with virtually every Japanese considered to be a deadly enemy until there would be no more Japanese left during the occupation. A good decision on Truman’s part, even though vehemently opposed by Republican Warmongering Experts that had never served in the military.

      with all US faults, we’re still not that bad of a country to be in 2nd, falling to 3rd place as a world super power. While China is correct about our blatant hypocrisy on the world stage -even to the point of North Korea correctly pointing US out to the world as THE GRAVEYARD OF HUMAN RIGHTS – there is no nation that has no history of human rights violations except maybe ‘pre-flood’ and even they got wet in their final assessment. Only, China’s historians are very aware of the mess the last group of ‘master race nincompoops’ left in human history, including investment losses – which like anyone that takes risk, will try to minimize. It’s a good business move on their part, as you’ve very well pointed out, we no longer have the bark of the worlds German Shepard Watch Dog ’cause it’s more like a nervous little Chihuahua that may get invited to a Korean lunch snack.

        Actually we rank 17th as the least corrupt nation.

    consider this a friendly warning from the red dragon and his little brother. Should they opt to send 5 or 6
    hundred million or so armed security personnel to the US in order to protect their property/investments – there will be no legal way of stopping them.

      They can decide all they want to, but they can’t do it.

    How does one propose morality when one is not moral themselves?

      WHITE Amerikan Kristians have been at it for well over a generation now. Not knowing or Karing about what the other 97.2% may think of the new Amerikan WHITE ‘master race’ is leaving US open for a universal shocking awakening.
