So nobody else looks like a criminal nation. Fire up the canoes and go get em. Nothing like an invasion to unite the country so don't waste any time with the invasion. In reality it will take longer, and cost mire, than brexit has so far. Those SA nations are like the Kurds in Syria, if you want to live you tah up with the ones with the most guns until the opportunity comes up to tag up with your preferred people. Is Canada include so there are some white people telling the brown people which other brown people need to be killed for the good of the Bankers. Perhaps some Judges from Vietnam should be on the Bench eh?? Might as well have Judges with 1st hand knowledge on how the main players operate.

I wouldn't want to be accused of taking sides now would I? BTW this is the court in question. You going to say it's legit, have them investigate Canada then rather than somebody under US sanctions. Another anti-social trait of yours just showed up and you know what that means.


On September 10, Bolton threatened U.S. sanctions against the court and its judges and prosecutors should they ever pursue a case against Israel or the U.S.

Calling the ICC an "illegitimate court," Bolton told Washington's Federalist Club:
"We will let the ICC die on its own. After all, to all intents and purposes, the ICC is already dead to us."

I believe that was what doing a profile on the nations involved was referring to, see how independent they are after they originally lost to the School of the Americans death squads. You can bet your bottom dollar that will the the first part of every profile done.

So if that's the case, why was Venezuela doing ok BEFORE Chavez came to power?

It is usually about this point I ask for something more than just your opinion. It won't be hard to find, anything published about the place that is from a NATO friendly nation will say the same thing. Pick any so I have something that shows me what part you are referencing specifically.
I already know my reply would have to include some things that you will not include such as who the leaders are friendly to. 1950 should be as far back as this aspect of the 'same old, same old'. The place is run like the Mafia owns it, the one that gets their money from the World Bank rather than Italy. They still own a few islands just off the coast of the country under discussion. Not part of the picture unless it is a base of operations with sees foreign players trying to run the enemy into the ground.

No military, thanks to the past, but lots of advisers from the IMF. They are an important enough player I could just refer to them as the financial arm of the World Bank and business is boom or bust at their desecration. 1972 in North America was an artificial shortage, 'the elite' never stopped turning any of their wheels, the public were biking or walking. Perhaps there was a surplus of bikes and the shortage was created to make a market for them and to create a part pf society would bike at almost any cost.


Back to the country in question. Before the IMF got interested in the oil they had gone through Central America and gobbled up all the land for the United Fruit Growers and further south the coke was a nice addition to the global drug industry that was already in place, legally through 'big pharma' or illegally through the 'Black Market'.
The contracts introduced by the IMF were priced at bring a 3rd world country (1950) into being what Kuwait was thanks to the oil in the ground and signing on the dotted line. Reality is 15% of the contract was fulfilled and just 'the elite' saw those changes, such as power and telephone and running water. The Military was trained to protect the interests of the 15% from any action started thy the 85% of the people whose lives had not only not improved (as promised) but had gotten worse as the money spent on them should have been exported along with the oil to the only people who mattered, the owners of the IMF.
The trend is not unique, it is a standard move for the IMF and a revolt usually happen about 25 years later. I'll let you ponder on why the core people are university students who are the only people in the country to know anything about what goes on outside of their immediate community. They moved to 4th world conditions rather than 2nd world by people who turned out to be liars and thieves, you kind of people, Right?


In the list Canada should be first as we are supposed to be 'civilized' rather than 15% controls our collective thoughts and deeds both outside and inside of the country. Our past with the ICC needs some clarity as we have a history with them and they seem to be out of cases to try. Pete has a boner on for Peru while I would be more inclined to take it up with the one in the UN where the judges are from all member states rather than one that might have some ties to the defendants, the IMF and her cronies.
Before that I have to look in the troll thread to see if any trolls were caught trolling it, TiTTs for short..

Totally owned, any questions. Canada is owned so are the other nations in the list.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Histor...e_Jews_in_Peru

History

Some conversos arrived at the time of the Spanish Conquest in Peru. Only Christians were allowed to take part in expeditions to the New World. At first, they had lived without restrictions because the Inquisition was not active in Peru at the beginning of the Viceroyalty. Then, with the advent of the Inquisition, New Christians began to be persecuted, and, in some cases, executed. In this period, these people were sometimes called "marranos" ("pigs"), converts ("conversos"), and "cristianos nuevos" (New Christians) even if they had been reared as Catholics from birth.
To escape persecution, these colonial Sephardic Jewish conversos settled mainly in the northern highlands and northern high jungle. They intermarried with natives and non-Jewish Europeans (mainly Spanish and Portuguese people) in some areas, assimilating to the local people: in Cajamarca, the northern highlands of Piura (Ayabaca and Huancabamba), among others, due to cultural and ethnic contact with people of the southern highlands of Ecuador. Their mixed-race descendants were reared with syncretic Catholic, Jewish, European and Andean rituals and beliefs.
In the first decades of the 19th century, numerous Sephardic Jews from Morocco emigrated to Peru as traders and trappers, working with the natives of the interior. By the end of the century, the rubber boom in the Amazon Basin attracted much greater numbers of Sephardic Jews from North Africa, as well as Europeans. Many settled in Iquitos, which was the Peruvian center for the export of rubber along the Amazon River. They created the second organized Jewish community in Peru after Lima, founding a Jewish cemetery and synagogue. After the boom fizzled due to competition from Southeast Asia, many Europeans and North Africans left Iquitos. Those who remained over generations had married native women; their mixed-race or mestizo descendants grew up in the local culture, a mixture of Jewish and Amazonian influences and faiths.
In modern times, before and after the Second World War, some Ashkenazic Jews, chiefly from Western and Eastern Slavic areas and from Hungary, migrated to Peru, chiefly to the capital Lima. The Ashkenazis ignored the Peruvian Jews of the Amazon, excluding them from consideration as fellow Jews under Orthodox law because their maternal lines were not Jewish.
In the late 20th century, some descendants in Iquitos began to study Judaism, eventually making formal conversions in 2002 and 2004 with the aid of a sympathetic American rabbi from Brooklyn, New York. A few hundred were given permission to make aliyah to Israel. In 2014, nearly 150 more emigrated to Israel.
Today

Today, there are about 3,000 Jews in Peru,[2] with only two organized communities: Lima and Iquitos.[3] They have made strong contributions to the economics and politics of Peru; the majority in Lima (and the country) are Ashkenazi Jews.

US-Led Economic War, Not Socialism, Is Tearing Venezuela Apart
Americans have been trained by decades of Cold War propaganda to look for any confirmation that ‘socialism means poverty.’ But in the case of Venezuela and other states not governed by the free market, this cliche simply doesn’t ring true.

Is socialism to blame for Venezuela's never-ending crisis?

Though '21st-century socialism' is implicated in Venezuela's collapse, so too are many characteristics of capitalism.
Venezuela's recent presidential election has done nothing to end the country's profound political, economic, and social crisis.
Inflation is spiralling out of control, oil production is plummeting, foreign assets have been seized, there are serious shortages of food and medicine, tens of thousands are fleeing the country, and the incumbent government of Nicolas Maduro has increasingly weakened the country's democratic instruments to cling to power.
The natural question in a country that boasts the world's largest proven oil reserves is, how did it come to this? Many have latched on to a simple answer: socialism. But is it really that simple?
Oil prices and policies

The underlying causes of Venezuela's hydra-headed crisis are economic, relating especially to oil and the foreign currency that it brings into the country.
The proximate cause of the recent turmoil is undoubtedly the 70-percent drop in oil prices in 2014, but the same problems that got exacerbated at that point were already in evidence five years earlier. And then, as now, they were fostered by poor policy choices.
Grave shortages are due largely to weak local production combined with a lack of foreign currency for imports, both of which relate to mismanagement of the local currency (the bolivar).
Essentially, in an attempt to prevent capital flight and currency collapse while also protecting local producers and enforcing labour law, Maduro's predecessor Hugo Chavez introduced controls on access to foreign currency. Subsidies and price controls were also implemented for many food items in order to keep them affordable to the poor, and an extremely generous subsidy on gasoline was maintained.

You probably overdid it again. What do the words mean when I said I would start my post with the 'Death Squads', if the timelines overlap are you going to say I was 'selective'?? When the courts come up is when Canada's relationship to the ICC. As far as I am aware the one in the EU is the court in question. If you want to do a few posts before then feel free, otherwise wait, patiently. I;ll be sure to spend extra time on your troll posts.

Peru is one of the countries that is with Canada, that is why I am covering the country of Peru. I already did Canada, we are totally owned and have been for some time. Are you thinking we and the other ones named are 'independent thinkers', that seems to be something you are confused about. I cover the topic at my speed and path rather than you set the pace. Being stupid only slows you down, I will just comment on that aspect of you personality as well.

By using the term 'small' are you trying to say they have little power or that is all it takes for Jews to totally run a country of that size?? 1 Jew for 50 Gentiles is the ownership paper I saw that was being drafted, that work for you?? Should I do that one on your special thread??

BYU JOURNAL OF PUBLIC LAW
[Volume 20
Cooperation (“WHINSEC”).
3
In 2002, Amnesty International USA (“Amnesty”) directly
condemned WHINSEC and its documented history of human rights
abuses.
4
In its report,
Unmatched Power, Unmet Principles: The Human
Rights Dimensions of US Training of Foreign Military and Police
Forces
, Amnesty accused the school of perpetuating troubling human
rights problems in the United States
.
5
Amnesty stated:
Throughout the decade of the 1990s, the record of one U.S. military
training institution, in particular, attracted public scrutiny in the United
States. The U.S. Army’s School of the Americas offered training and
education to Latin American soldiers, some of whom went on to
commit human rights violations, including the 1989 murder in El
Salvador of six Jesuit priests, their housekeeper and her daughter. Then,
in 1996, it came to light that, in the 1980s and early 1990s, the School
of the Americas had used manuals that advocated practices such as
torture, extortion, kidnapping and execution.
6
The report further described many of the human rights abuses committed
by the school’s graduates –abuses which are detailed later in this article –
and pointed out that no one has accepted responsibility, or been held
accountable, for the alleged widespread
illegal actions of the school and
its graduates.
7
Amnesty concluded their report with several strong
recommendations to the U.S. government to remedy the human rights
violations occurring at WHINSEC,
8
including the following
recommendatio
(in part)
http://www.thirdworldtraveler.com/Terrorism/SOA.html
The School of the Americas (SOA) has been given other names -- "School for Dictators", "School of Assassins", and "Nursery of Death Squads". And, countries with the worst human rights records send the most soldiers to the School.
Countries / Graduates (since 1946)
Argentina / 931
Bolivia / 4,049
Brazil / 355
Chile / 2,405
Colombia / 8,679
Costa Rica / 2,376
Dominican Republic / 2,330
Ecuador / 2,356
El Salvador / 6,776
Guatemala / 1,676
Honduras / 3,691
Nicaragua / 4,693
Panama / 4,235
Paraguay / 1,084
Peru / 3,997
Uruguay / 931
Venezuela / 3,250

When they return to their home countries, graduates of the SOA hold a rather unique and peculiar view of their countrymen. They look upon priests, social workers, journalists, and liberal intellectuals, not as assets to their societies, but as dangerous subversives, working to undermine the system that keeps these soldiers, army officers, and their sponsors in power.

Graduates of the SOA have been among the most repressive tyrants in Latin America, and their actions have been some of the most cruel and violent. In El Salvador, in 1989, a Salvadoran army patrol executed six Jesuit priests as they lay face-down on the ground at Central America University. According to the United Nation's Truth Commission Report on El Salvador in 1993, 19 of the 27 officers who took part in the executions were trained at the SOA.

In 1990, in El Salvador, populist Archbishop Oscar Romero was assassinated. Three-quarters of the Salvadoran officers implicated in the killing were trained at the SOA. Roberto D'Aubuison, the late leader of El Salvador's Death Squad, was implicated in the plot to assassinate Archbishop Romero. He also participated in numerous murders, including a massacre in the village of El Mazote, where more than 900 men, women, and children were killed. He graduated from SOA as well.


The U.N. Truth Commission's statistics reveal the extent of the School's murderous role in El Salvador .

Romero assassination 3 officers cited --- 2 were SOA graduates
Murder of US nuns 5 officers cited --- 3 were SOA graduates
Union leader murders 3 officers cited --- 3 were SOA graduates
El Junquillo massacre 3 officers cited --- 2 were SOA graduates
El Mazote massacre 12 officers cited --- 10 were SOA graduates
Dutch journalist murders 1 officer cited --- he was an SOA graduate
Las Hojas massacre 6 officers cited --- 3 were SOA graduates
San Sebastian massacre 7 officers cited --- 6 were SOA graduates
Jesuit massacre 26 officers cited --- 19 were SOA graduates

In other Latin American countries, graduates of the SOA have been equally prominent enemies of human rights. Former dictators Omar Torrijos of Panama, Guillermo Rodriguez of Ecuador, and Juan Velasco Alvarado of Peru, all overthrew constitutionally elected governments in their countries. Leopoldo Galtieri, the former head of the Argentina junta defeated in the Falklands War, was responsible for thousands of "disappeared" citizens who supported freedom and democracy in Argentina, and paid the ultimate price with their lives. He was an SOA graduate.

In Honduras, General Humberto Ragalado Hernandez, was trained at the SOA at the same time that he was linked to Columbian drug cartels, and the highest ranking officers in the Honduran Death Squad were trained at SOA as well.

In Peru, the most senior officers convicted of the February 1994 murder of nine university students and a professor, were graduates of the SOA. In Columbia, a 1992 human rights tribunal cited 246 officers for crimes against the people of Columbia. 105 of the officers were trained at the SOA. In Panama, ex-dictator Manuel Noriega, formerly on the CIA payroll, graduated from the SOA. He is now in a US prison, convicted of trafficking in drugs.

In Guatemala, a country of 10 million, the indigenous Mayan population of 6 million have endured the greatest suffering in Latin America. During more than 30 years of civil war, tens-of-thousands have been slaughtered, with the total killed estimated to exceed 200,000. Most of the ranking generals involved in the numerous coups and acts of terror and murder during this period were trained at the SOA.

SCHOOL OF THE AMERICAS. STILL THE SCHOOL FOR KILLERS?

Global Witness: “Honduras, the most dangerous country per capita to be an environmental activist for the last five years, with 101 deaths between 2010 and 2014”
March 2017: The infamous US Army School of the Americas (also nicknamed “School of Coups” and “School of the Assassins”) in Fort Benning, Georgia (rebranded as the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation [WHINSEC] since 2001) once again rears its ugly head one year past the cold-blooded assassination of Honduran indigenous and environmental activist Berta Isabel Cáceres, who was gunned down just before midnight March 2, 2016, after months of threats on her life and despite the obligation on the Honduran state to provide her with protection. Her shooting was the culmination of an extended campaign by the indigenous Lenca people (the largest indigenous group in Honduras) against the vested interests linked to the Honduran company Desarrollos Energéticos, S.A. (also known as DESA) and their plans to construct four hydroelectric dams on the Gualcarque River. In this regard Berta Cáceres joins a long list of environmental activists and protesters murdered for standing up for local people’s rights in the face of the large corporations and their friends and relatives in both the military and other ‘high places’: “a powerful nexus of corporate and state interests”, international NGO Global Witness says, in a country: “Honduras, the most dangerous country per capita to be an environmental activist for the last five years, with 101 deaths between 2010 and 2014.”

Strong evidence suggests a Peruvian police 'death squad' set up and killed criminal suspects
A source within a special investigative committee formed by recently inaugurated President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski told the Los Angeles Times late Tuesday that investigators believe corrupt police using intermediaries persuaded delinquents to carry out robberies and then killed them during the heists to gain performance points.

The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing, said the special committee's report was given to the interior ministry's special prosecutor for organized crime Tuesday night, but it still has not been made public.

I'm not sure any of the local nations are able to even have 'free elections', most due to the dumber of the dead in the opposition parties.

Alrighty, top of the list my impatient patient.

Pro: U.S. policy chief culprit in Venezuela’s collapse
In 1998, when the late Hugo Chavez was first elected, Venezuela had a poverty rate of about 50 percent — despite having been among the world’s top oil exporters since the 1930s — and had governments that consistently had good relations with the United States.
In the late 1970s, at one of its most prosperous points ever as measured by per capita GDP, Venezuela’s child mortality rate was about double that of Cuba’s and Costa Rica’s.

Pick a starting year for when the 'good times' started or the 15% of the elite and a date for the other 85%. If it fits my dates we will include it for special attention. It will include the same material posted for Peru as well as the parts that were not posted.

Graduates of the School of the Americas
The U.S. Army School of the Americas is a school that has run more dictators than any other school in the history of the world.
A number of graduates of the SOA and WHINSEC have been accused and sentenced for human rights violations and criminal activity in their home countries.[43] In response to public debate and in order to promote transparency, the Freedom of Information Act released records that tracked trainees of the school.[4] In August 2007, according to an Associated Press report, Colonel Alberto Quijano of the Colombian Army's Special Forces was arrested for providing security and mobilizing troops for Diego León Montoya Sánchez (aka "Don Diego"), the leader of the Norte del Valle Cartel and one of the FBI's 10 most-wanted criminals. School of the Americas Watch said in a statement that it matched the names of those in the scandal with its database of attendees at the institute. Alberto Quijano attended courses and was an instructor who taught classes on peacekeeping operations and democratic sustainment at the school from 2003 to 2004.[44]
Other former students include Salvadoran Colonel and Atlacatl Battalion leader Domingo Monterrosa and other members of his group who were responsible for the El Mozote massacre,[45] [3] and Franck Romain, former leader of the Tonton Macoute, who was responsible for the St Jean Bosco massacre.[46] Honduran General Luis Alonso Discua was also a graduate of the school who later on commanded Battalion 3-16, a military death squad.[3]
Critics of SOA Watch argue the connection between school attendees and violent activity is often misleading. According to Paul Mulshine, Roberto D'Aubuisson's sole link to the SOA is that he had taken a course in radio operations long before El Salvador's civil war began.[47] Further, others assert that training statistics show that Argentina, a country that engaged in much anti-Communist sentiment and violence during the Cold War era, had a relatively small number of military personnel educated at the school.[5]
In 2018, two of the highest officers of the Venezuelan Army, Minister of Defense Vladimir Padrino Lopez and SEBIN director Gustavo Gonzalez Lopez were sanctioned by the United States for human rights abuses against opposition protesters and dissidents, corruption leading to the economic collapse of the country, and Drug Trafficking charges. Both of them were found to have been students of "Psychological Operations" courses at SOA in 1995 and 1991 respectively.[48]

Oil was discovered in the early 20th century, and today, Venezuela has the world's largest known oil reserves and has been one of the world's leading exporters of oil. Previously, the country was an underdeveloped exporter of agricultural commodities such as coffee and cocoa, but oil quickly came to dominate exports and government revenues. The 1980s oil glut led to an external debt crisis and a long-running economic crisis. Inflation peaked at 100% in 1996 and poverty rates rose to 66% in 1995[12] as (by 199 per capita GDP fell to the same level as 1963, down a third from its 1978 peak.[13] The recovery of oil prices in the early 2000s gave Venezuela oil funds not seen since the 1980s.[14] The Venezuelan government under Hugo Chavez then established populist social welfare policies that initially boosted the Venezuelan economy and increased social spending, temporarily[15] reducing economic inequality and poverty in the early years of the regime.[19] However, such populist policies[20] later became inadequate, causing the nation's collapse as their excesses—including a uniquely extreme fossil fuel subsidy[21]—are widely blamed for destabilizing the nation's economy. The destabilized economy led to a crisis in Bolivarian Venezuela, resulting in hyperinflation, an economic depression,[22] shortages of basic goods [23] and drastic increases in unemployment,[24] poverty,[25] disease, child mortality, malnutrition and crime. By 2017, Venezuela was declared to be in default regarding debt payments by credit rating agencies.[26] [27] In 2018, the country's economic policies led to extreme hyperinflation, with estimates expecting an inflation rate of 1,370,000% by the end of the year.[28] Venezuela is a charter member of the UN, OAS, UNASUR, ALBA, Mercosur, LAIA and OEI.

Controversy

Sanctions

United States

Since February 17, 2014, after the controversial shooting during the 2014–2017 Venezuelan protests in Candelaria which left Bassil Da Costa shot dead, he was appointed Managing Director of Bolivarian Intelligence Service (Sebin) and president of Strategic Centre for Security and Protection Patria. González López was one of 7 officials that received targeted sanctions by the government of Barack Obama for alleged human rights abuses. Following the announcement of sanctions, González López was promoted Minister of Popular Power for Interior, Justice and Peace by President Nicolás Maduro, who stated "I have decided to appoint Major General González López Minister of Interior, Justice and Peace to go with his award of the American empire to secure peace in the country, citizen and national security".[7] [8] [9] [10]

The next phase will be about sanctions so a few other nations will need to be included as they are documented quite well to show they do punish a nation as much as possible with military action in open warfare. Vile people also cheer about the results.

If you want to do a few posts before then feel free, otherwise wait, patiently. I;ll be sure to spend extra time on your troll posts.
Peru is one of the countries that is with Canada, that is why I am covering the country of Peru. I already did Canada, we are totally owned and have been for some time. Are you thinking we and the other ones named are 'independent thinkers', that seems to be something you are confused about. I cover the topic at my speed and path rather than you set the pace. Being stupid only slows you down, I will just comment on that aspect of you personality as well.
By using the term 'small' are you trying to say they have little power or that is all it takes for Jews to totally run a country of that size?? 1 Jew for 50 Gentiles is the ownership paper I saw that was being drafted, that work for you?? Should I do that one on your special thread??

I thought you weren't responding to me one on one anymore? I thanked you and everything for that, so now what?
