Very typical white hypocrisy. They couldn’t stand seeing Japan (a nonwhite country) outplay them in the field of economics so they did exactly what they hate on China for doing now. It’s sickening how they go around complaining about what China is doing when they did the exact same thing years ago, yet they still get labeled as the “good guys.” If only the Japanese news media years ago did the same, criticized them for what they were doing and showed what they truly were (and still are); hypocritical bad guys.
Looks like the bill was a smashing success and attracted it’s first customer.
After the US Congress passed the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA), which overrides the principle of sovereign immunity to allow families of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia, an Iraqi group has requested parliament to prepare a lawsuit seeking compensation from the US for the invasion of Iraq.
The “Arab Project in Iraq” lobby group “sees their opportunity to ask for compensation from the United States over violations by the US forces following the US invasion that saw the toppling of late President Saddam Hussein in 2003,” the Al-Arabiya news channel reported on Saturday.
“It urged for a full-fledged investigation over the killing of civilians targets, loss of properties and individuals who suffered torture and other mistreatment on the hand of US forces.”
The Iraqi group is the first to take advantage of the precedent set by JASTA in overturning the principle of sovereign immunity.
President Obama had attempted to veto the legislation, but his veto was overturned by the Senate on Wednesday. By passing JASTA and allowing 9/11 families to sue Saudi Arabia, the Senate has also made the US vulnerable to legal action seeking compensation for its foreign policy activities across the world.
The day after the Senate vote, former Republican Senator Larry Pressler expressed fear that as a veteran of the Vietnam War, he could now face legal action.
All my Asians, I encourage you to write to your governments and spread the good news.
I wonder how John “I hate the gooks” McCain feels about all this.
@Danger That’s great to hear! They should definitely try to be more vocal if that’s the case and counterargue all of these Asian “e-feminists” online, on interviews, videos and everywhere else since they’re academic and having degrees will probably give them more credibility. If they’re not already doing so, maybe we can contact them and get them to do so.
