Amnesty International – the most effective international agency EVAR

Wooo boy did I just find a whopper of a funny article this morning. Apparently Amnesty International, which is based out of the U.K., is still having a fit over the fact that every time they issue a decree (much like the U.N.) it is being largely ignored by the only people that could actually empower them… which this time around is us (the U.S.) and China. China is being derided for some fairly valid issues:

The report said China had continued shipping weapons to Sudan in defiance of a U.N. arms embargo and traded with abusive governments like Myanmar and Zimbabwe. It said that China’s media censorship remains in place and that the government continues to persecute rights activists.

Pretty bad shit, right? Guns to militant regimes, persecution of human rights activists.

The report also accused China of expanding its “re-education through labor” program, which allows the government to arrest people and sentence them to… manual labor without trial.

-Also with the forced labor camps.  Not a GOOD thing, but at least they are giving them a job, right?

So on to OUR violations, heinous as they may be…

The United States is shirking its duty to provide the world with moral leadership

This year it also criticized the U.S. for supporting Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf last November when he imposed a state of emergency.

As in the past, the U.S. detention center at Guantanamo Bay came in for criticism. Irene Khan, Amnesty’s secretary-general, appealed for the American president elected in November to announce the jail’s closure on Dec. 10, 2008, the 60th anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights.

Bad, BAAAAD U.S.A. We supported a leader that declared martial law after people within said country’s own borders had declared war on it. Naaaah, Musharraf, being a military guy, had NO IDEA what he was doing when he did this and we as a country that is not being the “moral compass” were just playing along with this… this… BULLY.

Wait… there is more? -A rebuttal? I can’t believe AP actually allowed this to be included in the article!

State Department spokesman Tom Casey said the U.S. remains at the forefront of promoting human rights and has made extensive efforts to transfer detainees from Guantanamo Bay to their home countries, having done so in several hundred cases already.

But more than 100 countries have refused to take back certain detainees, Casey said.

WHAT?!?!? Even when certain actions that we try to perform actually fall in line with this retarded agency’s wishes we can’t perform them due to the source country that we got the damned terrorists from not wanting take them back? I wonder why…

I just want to lay something out for agencies like this, to INCLUDE the U.N.

 We are the United States.

We are bigger than you and have the largest military in the fucking WORLD that will back up what we say.

No matter how loud you scream, no matter how much bullshit you say that you think we need to do “for our own good” we will only do so if some internal policy we have falls in line with something that you have stated. China and Russia are the same, although they have different approaches. Your little “agency” will never be able to hijack American policy because no matter who we elect, Dem, Repub, or Libertarian, they are directed by the AMERICAN people and will always do what they have to do to stay in office… and trust you me as a voting citizen, when I am eating roasted fetuses on toast in the morning (with a side of favah beans and a nice chianti) the LAST THING ON MY MIND is what the hell you think of me.

Hey, you get an award!

It’s the world-renowned “FUCK YOU WITH A BUICK” Award!!!!

Congrats!

 

Beep beep!

  1. And yet they seem quiet on creeping Sharia in Toronto and London.

  2. No kidding. I swear agencies like this have no concept of perspective and only attack large entities to gain recognition / justification for their existence.

  3. (I suppose telling you I was a member of Amnesty International in high school would be a bad thing… and a buick that size won’t fit)

  4. ^KC:
    Never fear.

    I once said I was a Democrat. That lasted until the girl I told it to to get laid and I split up.

  5. LOL… well I ain’t trying to get laid in cyberspace… but thanks for that Eddiebear!

  6. I love your site!
