Dubya's Legal Shredder

For those of you who lost track, and for those of you who get your news by watching TV in America and therefore have absolutely no idea what goes on in the world, here is a little example of how the Bush administration has been turning our homeland into a rogue nation; a nation that spits on international law, international cooperation, human decency and the general safety and well being of Earth’s inhabitants.

This is an unpublicized list of international treaties obliterated by the Bush administration, without the approval of the American people. We were not even given any chance to voice our positions on these vital matters because the criminal corporate media did not do its job and report this to the public.

Treaties Revoked by George W. Bush

• The Biodiversity Treaty (continued non-support)
• The Geneva Convention
• The Forest Protection Plan
• The Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty
• The Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty
• The 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty
• The 1972 Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention
• The 1979 UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women
• The UN International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights
• The Chemical Weapons Convention
• The International Criminal Court

* Honorable Mention: The U.S. Constitution!

Can you imagine what this list would look like if we listed the environmental protection laws and regulations that have been obliterated by the Bush administration along with this? Think about it!
