Amnesia allows many Americans to forget their country's many violations of the sovereignty of other states as well as the relentless expansion of NATO and the European Union that threatens to encircle Russia. All they know, alas, is that Russia has intervened in Ukraine.

The hypocrisy of Secretary of State John Kerry’s statement on Face the Nation, “You just don't in the 21st century behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped up pretext," is beyond belief. What about the US invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan, or regime change in Libya, or the threats to bomb Syria and attack Iran?

"The  war on Iraq was portrayed in the U.S. as a war without casualties. Yet, on the first day of air strikes against Iraq (Jan. 17, 1991), the U.S. dropped explosives equivalent to the explosive power of the Atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. Throughout the duration of the bombing, explosives equivalent to seven nuclear bombs were dropped, in addition to internationally banned biological and chemical weapons."

Prisons around the world house some of the world’s most infamous criminals. www.criminaljusticedegreehub.com has created an infographic entitled “Harsh Justice: Comparing Prisons around the World” exploring different prisons around the world, along with their populations, and some of their more gruesome tactics.
This infographic lists over 35 countries, along with their prison population, with China holding a steady #1. China houses more than 10 times the prisoners than any other country. The United States has it’s own prison population problem, but prisoners such as Ted Kaczynski, Richard Reid, and Terry Nichols find their prison home at Florence, Colorado’s ADX super max. This prison gained popularity after a class action suit claimed the prisoners engaged in self-mutilation and other disturbing actions. While the U.S. prison system is far from perfect, other prisons are notorious for violations of human rights as well. Diyarbakir Prison in Turkey, and Camp 22 in North Korea are also among the most infamous and barbaric prisons in the world. This infographic details some of the torture that prisoners may go through on a daily basis, such as water torture, hanging torture, box-room torture, kneeling torture, and pigeon torture.
