New Book - American War Crimes Invite Terrorist Attacks: Geneva Convention Violations Identified

Terrorists are motivated to attack the United States for a reason. That reason is that the American government violates the Geneva Conventions and related agreements, particularly by harming innocent civilians in war. Yet most Americans are unaware.

PRLog - March 11, 2011 - LOS ANGELES -- Torture, murder, illegal war, the slaughter of thousands of innocents, abuse of child prisoners—these are only a few of 269 war crimes committed during the Bush administration, which rolled over to the Obama administration on January 20, 2009.
