    Jimmy Carter is a heck of a humanitarian. Unfortunately, humanitarians make lousy presidents and political pundits. Jimmy - shut up and build some more houses please.

    There are many people who will claim that Bush and even Nixon were good presidents. Please, someone claim that Carter was a good president; I think we'll all have a laugh.

    Does this mean Jimmy Carter won't be voting for President Obama in November?

    "In reality"? Wth does that even mean? I guess academic polls and public opinion polls aren't taken with real people?

    What does 'academic scholars aren't taken with people' mean?

    Jimmy seems to miss the notion that the people being targeted aren't exactly in the business of advancing human rights. In fact, their very raison d'Ítre is to eliminate them. As such, any consideration for human rights should be taken from a standpoint intelligent enough to recognize the net effect and not just the limited action. In this, Jimmy fails miserably, no doubt because he has become little more than a mouthpiece for those who support him financially.


    His attitude is much like that of those who appeased the Nazis in the 30's in that those who are overly concerned with taking action seldom consider the results of not taking them which often times results in a much greater loss of life and human suffering.

    re: Jimmy Carter Accuses U.S. of 'Widespread Abuse of Human Rights'[W:110]

    Carter isn't breaking any news with this article. We have committed atrocities across the world for a long time now under the term "collateral damage." Innocent civilians are killed and a lot of you think that it is just part of what it takes to "defend freedom."

    The last two administrations (Bush and Obama) are responsible for these lives lost. Innocent human beings are killed by our military and some don't even bat an eye to it. Part of life...it is the cruel nature of it. However, the one thought that never crosses their minds is that we can choose to not drop bombs on other countries that pose no threat to our national security. We can choose to not invade the sovereignty of a foreign nation and kill their citizens. We could choose to cherish life rather then spread death.

    The real tragedy is people choose to accept killing others in pursuit of false security. They turn a blind eye, and a deaf ear to any other way of thinking. It amazes me at times how closed minded some people are.
    Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.
