Why are some political, industry, academic and media figures so keen to vehemently attribute blame before the facts are known and to hysterically declare the need for urgent retaliation? – See more at: http://www.globalnewscentre.com/?p=2591&preview=true#sthash.6RgcF86a.dpuf

(MAUNGDOW, Arakan) On 17th of July 2014, a group from the Burmese Census Taking Authority visited Hetaliya hamlet (Zulapara) in Maungdaw Township to persuade people to register as Bengalis but no Rohingya from the village agreed to register in the Census as Bengalis. At last, the Census group left without success.

As retaliation, on the 30th of July the authority came back to the village accompanied by a small group of Border Guard Police (BGP) and raided houses in the village indiscriminately. They robbed the villagers of belongings and then separated the women aside and started harassing them. When the security forces were about to rape the women at gun point the villagers, and many people from neighboring villages, gathered and tried to rescue the innocent women. At that point, the security forces opened fire in the air to disperse the crowd. Later, they arrested a few villagers and took them away at gun point to Kyiganpyin, the Head Quarters of BGP.

Under international law all parties involved in a conflict, must whether state or non state armed actors, respect international humanitarian law. The aim of which is to regulate conduct during hostilities and respect for human rights law.

(LONDON)  “The Human Rights Act 1998 is an Act of Parliament of the United Kingdom which received Royal Assent on the 9 November 1998, and mostly came into force on 2 October. Its aim is to give further affect in UK law to the rights contained in the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, but more commonly known as the European Convention on Human Rights. The Act makes available in UK courts a remedy for breach of a Convention right without the need to go to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.”

American people have a voice

(MEDIA, Pa.)   Congress is now on recess as of August 4th, returning to their seats in DC on September 8thwhile on recess, they are campaigning for the November election. In their campaign speeches they make promises they probably can not keep. They visit VA medical centers, nursing homes for the aged, union halls, hold round table sessions, meet with constituents. In my opinion, items of this nature should always be on their agenda, not just 3 months prior to the elections looking for votes.

From 1946 through the 1980s, the Cold War cast a shadow over every facet of American life.

(DAYTONA BEACH)   Now that Obama and the Republicans – at least for a week or two – have stopped arguing over the wrong argument, at the wrong time, concerning the wrong people, and now that  the usual unsolvable nightmare prevails in the Middle East, including genocide in Syria (which we oppose), the ongoing genocide in Gaza (which we condone) and the everybody-hates-Iran mindset, the time was never better for the declaration of a permanent Post-War. We can learn a lot about how to do it by a rigorous review of what’s gone on since the end of World War II, which set some sort of record for the death of millions, if you want to refer to that with the G-word.
