Perhaps someone can explain why the State Dept is congratulatory here?

A quote:

“The U.S. loves human-rights-abusing regimes and always has, provided they ‘cooperate.’ … The only time the U.S. government pretends to care in the slightest about human rights abuses is when they’re carried out by ‘countries that don’t cooperate.'”

wait a second...a State Department in Obama's administration, ran by Hillary Clinton, congratulates a regime with a track record violating human rights, and you're surprised??

That's rich, coming from a guy whose country's First Nations peoples have accused the country of cultural genocide.

Gotcha!!! :) :) :) And how many aboriginals died in the USA?? 10, million was it?? Only 250,000 left alive in 1900, was it??

By the way, I'm pretty sure the Saudis were Bush allies too. Not much to do with Obama!!

They were Bush's allies when he overthrew one of the worst mass murderers in history. A challenge Canada backed away from, by the way.

I see the 'cultural genocide'comment struck a nerve. It should. Among other things, it's shows your massive hypocrisy.

And your ever repeated ignoring of the American aboriginal genocide shows yours again!! Classic!!
