117. That's another difference, the corrupt are held accountable
in South American countries, war criminals, and corrupt 'ministers' have to step down and face prosecution. Here our war criminals and corrupt officials, go on to become College Professors and can run again for office with backing from Wall Street. Or get a job on TV.

And we still cannot leave them alone. Still trying to destroy what they are trying to build up. We have a rotten, corrupt, totally broken system here where crime pays and decency is frowned on, seen as a threat. Read the Wikileaks cables eg, to see what the US thinks of one of the world's most respected Justices who presides over the European Court of Human Rights. They DESPISE him! Our Government, who points fingers at others, slammed this brilliant and humane man because he insists on adhering to the Geneva Conventions. And no, it was NOT the Bush gang, it was THIS administration. Decent, law-abiding Human Rights judges are hated by our current government.

Meanwhile in S. America, they are finally bringing THEIR war criminals, most of them OUR allies, to justice after decades of waiting. Maybe there is hope for us yet.
