Human rights has been long fought for, taken away, and given back to different area of the world, but what will happen in the time of war. How can we as a government penalized the people that betray us. Do we treat them with a gold platter and treat them like kings, or do we just treat our threats as scum and make them wish they were never born and show the world to never cross the United States government. In my opinion the United State is a big hypocrite when it gets down to human rights. It’s almost like the United States has it’s own rules that it follows and it gives other countries another set. We as “world police” can not continue to lead by this example, we have to change and show the world they can trust us again. In the case of Bradley Manning the 1st amendment can give him some protection, freedom of speech is what made the United States one of the best countries in the world. People left their native countries for freedom of speech and to make the most out of their lives. International laws do apply to every country even the United States, and the fact they are not following the human rights laws for torture done to Bradley Manning is out of this world.
