The USA joins an exclusive club

According to the BBC, more than 100 nations have agreed to ban cluster bombs. Guess which countries didn’t decided to go in on this treaty? As though we needed any further evidence that the Bush administration’s priorities were anything but peaceful, the United States joined the likes of China, Israel and Russia in declining the agreement.

Are China (totalitarian dictatorship) and Israel (“democracy” with institutionalized racial and religious discrimination) really the types that the US wants to be associated with? The Pentagon says that cluster munitions “have demonstrated military utility.” Apparently, torture must also have military utility, because the Bush administration isn’t interested in stopping this practice either.

This November, you’ll have a chance to vote for the only candidate who would put humanitarian concerns ahead of imperialistic policies and who would work with the global community, not against it.  Vote Ralph Nader and raise your voice for better America.
