Days ago, responding to Russian military intervention in the Crimea, President Obama denounced Russia for a “breach of international law.”

The Russian intervention deserves criticism. But let’s be clear. The message from the White House is: Do as we say, not as we do.

The U.S. government routinely violates international law with drone strikes in Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and other countries, not to mention its own interference in Ukraine's government. Human-rights groups like Reprieve have documented many of those violations in recent reports, and the European Parliament has just condemned the practice as illegal -- but the USA’s missile attacks continue.

Click here to tell President Obama that his tributes to international law are worthless as long as he keeps violating it.

Some background articles below provide important context for the current Ukraine crisis.

At this highly dangerous moment, please take action by signing the petition and then forwarding this message to your friends.

Thank you!

USA is the real expert at Invasion of Sovereign Countries. Sort of bizarre that USA's leaders find something wrong about it since they embrace invasion as an open policy, not to mention their OTHER USA policies of COVERT operations against sovereign nations -- such as supporting AL Qaeda in Libya and Syria and Neo-Nazis/Neoliberals in Ukraine! And don't forget the violation of nations' sovereignty with the USE OF DRONE WARFARE ATTACKS against civilians.

Besides, Putin says the individuals in military uniforms are not his troops because he did not send any troops into Ukraine. Those claiming these are Russian troops are spreaders of disinformation, according to this line of reasoning.

(There are Russian military/naval personnel at the Ukraine port where Russia has an agreement that allows Russians to be at the port base Sevastopol. So THOSE personnel have nothing to do with this, I gather.)

This interview addresses alot of this and clarifies the facts -- free from USA neoliberal propaganda and free from USA Corporate Media-Military-Industrial Complex Warmongering hysteria.
