by Habib Siddiqui "When a nation is complacent about its own crimes that are committed by top ranking government officials, it shows its moral bankruptcy and cannot demand respect or trust from the civilized world."

These reports showed how the Bush-Cheney Administration had authorized brutal torture (...)

Canadian Activists and Lawyers United for Justice: Canadians must bar or prosecute Bush
By : Free World Leader of the New World Order - Friday March 13, 2009
Canadian Activists and Lawyers United for Justice: Canada must bar or prosecute Bush for torture, and mass murder. For he is a war criminal who lied that Saddam wouldn’t let our inspectors in. And, with Cheney, closed 911 FBI investigations before we were finished nabbing the actual suspects for mass murder - that’s a no-no where we’re from. See? I’m a strict Constitutionalist.

Al-Bashir Indictment: The ICC is Hypocritical
By : afrikakorps - Friday March 13, 2009
by Amengeo Amengeo On Wednesday March 3, 2009, the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for Omar Hassan al - Bashir, the President of Sudan, Africa’s largest country. This in itself is not amazing given the zeal and selectivity with which the West has pursued and dragged Africans to court on various charges of genocide, recruiting child soldiers and rape, among others. What is amazing, however, is the timidity with which African leaders have accepted this wholesale (...)

US Judges involved in human trafficking

At this point in my life I am against the death penalty, mainly because I know the system is corrupt, however I have been a supporter of the death penalty in the past and may become one in the future, so I have a question for those who support the death penalty in the United States of America, or anywhere else for that matter.

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
