The US government has been increasingly “contemptuous” and in “complete contradiction” of international law, says an activist and radio host in New York City.
“The United States has been more and more, in almost every area, acting openly contemptuous of international law,” Don DeBar told Press TV on Saturday.
“The reason behind this, the front reason, is a sense of impunity. The United States really has never been brought to task by anyone for its crimes because of its military power,” DeBar said.
DeBar made the comments in response to reports that Bolivian President Evo Morales will file a lawsuit against the US government for “crimes against humanity.” Morales has decried the US for its intimidation tactics and fear-mongering after the Venezuelan presidential jet was blocked from entering US airspace.
Several EU countries also closed their airspace to Bolivia’s presidential jet because of suspicions that former CIA employee Edward Snowden, who is wanted in the US on espionage charges, was on board.
DeBar noted that the incident put the life of Bolivia’s president in danger and was “in complete contradiction to international law.”
“Until someone finds some method of making the United States government and the officials particularly of the United States government accountable for their activities and their behavior, the most powerful military force in the world is going to continue to thump its chest and rumble through the world like a gorilla gone mad and humanity might not survive that,” he added.
