99. The basic axiom of International Law is "Sovereignty".

Sovereignty means, among other things, that EVERY countries territorial integrity and international border inviolability rights are supreme.

The USA, unfortunately, doesn't obey International Law now. The only law the USA observes is, "Might makes Right!"

The USA, literally led by the "Secret Team" fronted by the "intelligence agencies", mainly the CIA, blatantly contravenes International Law with apparent impunity, and has at least since assassinating the Prime Minister of Iran in 1953, attempted coup in Indonesia in 1958, the "Bay Of Pigs" in 1961, Francis Gary Powers ill-fated 1960 U2 flight over the USSR, our initial involvement in Vietnam in the late 1950s and 1960s, "Air America", unsuccessful assassination attempts against Fidel Castro, Iran/Contra and myriads of "special ops" around the world, ever since. The "NATO" helicopter that killed the Pakistani troops this week was likely a CIA asset. The "drone" program, run by the CIA, is beyond blatant and a war crime, prima facie.

The USA is the number one terrorist organization on the planet!

We're #1!

International Law and the Constitution of the United States are now useless anachronisms, according to the 1%.

It's back to the future all over again!

Feudalism is back in America, big time...

99% serfs, indentured and enslaved, take your pick!
