Yes,.i am giong to continue to fence around it. Especaly now even CNN reports about victims by cluster bombs. At least Amnesty was telling the truth.

amnesty was telling the truth... it's their truth, and not the whole truth, but it still is the truth... it's very dangerous for a supposedly neutral organization meant to protect human rights turns a blind eye on certain events based on their own political beliefs

Headache in a Suitcase:

at the begin of the current Iraq war there was a special about human rights violations of Iraq in the german ai journal, so i don't know why you think they are onesided - maybe you just read the quotes about ai where conservatives get angry that ai criticizes the "liberation"?
Iraqs human right violations were often a reason for Urgent Actions of ai, so i don't see the point for your critics.
Should they only talk about human right violations when they also find a new human right violation from the oposite party??

Maybe because they were an outgoing regime? AI are about raising awareness and making noise for people who can't themselves. The suicide tactics from Iraq were front page news around the world, and the Coalition military, in my opinion, are not exactly the underdogs in this situation and are quite capable of making their own noise and dealing with that issue themselves, therefore no need for AI help.

AI are meant to look for the injustices that aren't being highlighted, aren't being fixed, and then try and throw a bit of the public awareness spotlight onto them. Like the very serious troubles and torture that Knick fans face year after year.
