This tit for tat is silly. The practice of justifying the human right abuses of your country by pointing the finger at the abuses committed by your adversaries trivializes those who have suffered on either side of the political spectrum.
Unless people in their respective camps don't actually acknowledge that everyone has blood on their hands? If that is the case then you are so blinded by your political loyalties that you have forgotten that power tends to corrupt those of all races, religions, and political leanings. Distinctions can definitely made between abusers and levels of abuse.. but we have to stay human to be qualified to make those distinctions.
I'm so sick of seeing this very thing here.
The fact is whenever you bring up one human rights abuse the USA has comitted, you can bring up one that happened in Iran.
