1948 UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights

To me, the key to understanding geopolitical events and policies is what happens to the ordinary people. We have had a spate of articles about Afghanistan, but few that consider the viewpoint of the people involved in the killing, the suffering and the dying.
For once I would like to hear the officials speak in human terms, as Rep. Alan Grayson D-FL does on health reform. I want to read articles from people who have been on the ground.

Supporting the perpetrators is a crime against humanity.

The voters must suffer a great deal more before they will elect a Progressive. Republicans would be happy to unite with Progressives in any plan to derail Obama or his programs. This is a quick way for the USA to become even more of a dictatorship.
