US and UK Sanctions: Weapons of War by Other Means on Targeted Nations and Individuals
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
Leading global human rights abuser USA is followed by Britain close behind.
Time and again, ruling authorities of both countries accuse other nations for their own high crimes — notably relating to wars of aggression they wage against nonbelligerent states threatening no one, along with their longstanding human rights abuses internally and abroad.
Cold War politics is back with a vengeance on multiple fronts.
It never went away but today it's at a fever pitch — China, Russia, and Iran the prime targets.
Other nations are also targeted for non-submissiveness to unacceptable hegemonic US demands.
On issues of war and peace, the rule of law, and human rights abuses, the US far and away is the main offender, Britain a junior partner in its imperial project.
