According to Amnesty International arms producing nations like USA, Russia, and China don’t want to know anything about human rights included in an Arms Trade Treaty. Obviously human rights seem to disturb the dirty business…
I followed the demonstrations in Egypt with great interest and admiration for the people in Egypt; young people going out on the streets to protest against the present regime in their nation. But is the step down of Mubarak really a victory for the citizens of Egypt? I have doubts.
The military took control over the faith of Egypt, a defence force staying very close to the United States of America… In my opinion this revolution showed again, that an uprising of people does not always result in their wishes and dreams, as anybody can read in history books.
