The US killed about 2-3 million people in South East Asia as a result of its wars.

The Nobel Prize-winning International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War just released a study concluding that, directly or indirectly, US has killed about 1 million people in Iraq.

That same study concluded the US has killed about 250,000 in Afghanistan.

That same study concluded the US has killed about 80,000 in Pakistan.

The US has a secret assassination program and decides in secret meetings who should be assassinated, without regard for any such thing as due process.

According to one US senator, but no one really knows for sure, US drones have killed around 4,700, many of whom are innocent, and many are children.

The US has obliterated 7 wedding parties with bombs and drones.

The only country who opposes a nuclear treaty.

Israel has between 200-400 nuclear weapons.

Has several nuclear-equipped submarines.

Has refused to join the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty.

Has refused inspection of any of its nuclear facilities.

Has invaded or attacked its neighbors, some repeatedly.

Is opposed to having the Middle East be declared a "Nuclear-Free Zone".

Has pushed hard for the US to attack Iran and has threatened to attack Iran on a number of occasions.

Those who say Iran cannot be trusted, might do well to review the violent history of the US compared to Iran, but then again ignorant people usually defy and ignore both facts and history.
