America (not Iran or any other muslim country ) is the only country in the World to be both charged with International Terrorism by the World Court of Justice & to Veto a UN resolution calling on all States to observe International Law?for the full transcript of the Judgement of the Court, entitled:

America harbours International Terrorists too & of course has made Terrorist attacks against many countries, including Nicaragua.

Nicaragua - of course - took America to the International Court of Justice & charged America with unlawful use of force, funding a Terrorist army, creating Terrorist Pahmplets & floating mines into a Nicaraguan port during peacetime.

Here are the court verdicts from the ICJ website:

"Military and Paramilitary Activities in and against Nicaragua (Nicaragua v. United States of AmerIca)"

"14. Considers that nothing in the present resolution could in any way prejudice the right to self-determination, freedom and independence, as derived from the Charter of the United Nations, of peoples forcibly deprived of that right referred to in the Declaration on Principles of International Law concerning Friendly Relations and Co-operation among States in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations, particularly peoples under colonial and racist regimes and foreign occupation or other forms of colonial domination, nor, in accordance with the principles of the Charter and in conformity with the above-mentioned Declaration, the right of these peoples to struggle to this end and to seek and receive support;"

In 1965 the United States & Britain overthrew the democratically elected President Sukarno In Indonesia, & installed the brutal dictator Suharto.

Helping him slaughter 500,000+ people.

A member of the commision that wrote the Indonesian Govt. report, stated in a private admission that 780,000 were killed.

Death Tolls in Indonesian Coup:

Official Indonesian Military Govt est: 78,000
U.S. State Dept: 100,000 - 1,000,000
New York Times: 150,000 to 400,000
Hartman: 300,000 to 600,000
Encarta: 300,000 to 1,000,000
Washington Post: 500,000
Eckhardt: 500,000
Chomsky: 500,000+
Rummel: 509,000
Amnesty International: 1,000,000+

Not only did the American & British Governments fear that the first Democratically elected Communist party was about to ascend to power in Indonesia, but they wanted to exploit it's vast resources.

Declassified documents (housed at the National Security Archive) from a State Department Volume covering Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines in the years 1964-68 show that America sent death lists to aid the slaughter & paid groups involved in it:

http://www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/NSAEBB/NSAEBB52/exhibit2.pdf

Embassy officials estimated the death tolls at between 100,000 - 1,000,000 but advised to "err on the side of the lower estimates, especially when questioned by the press":

http://www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/NSAEBB/NSAEBB52/exhibit1.pdf

U.S. should know, according to Kathy Kadane, the journalist who originally interviewed Ambassador Martens & uncovered the sending of death lists (prior to the CIA acknowledgement):

"The US provided key logistical equipment....Jeeps were supplied by the Pentagon to speed troops over Indonesia's notoriously bad roads, along with "dozens and dozens" of field radios that the Army lacked. As Ms. Laber noted, the US (namely, the Pentagon) also supplied "arms." Cables show these were small arms, used for killing at close range.

The supply of radios is perhaps the most telling detail. They served not only as field communications but also became an element of a broad, US intelligence-gathering operation constructed as the manhunt went forward."

"According to a former US official, the US listened in to the broadcasts on the US-supplied radios for weeks as the manhunt went forward, overhearing, among other things, commands from Soeharto's intelligence unit to kill particular persons at given locations."

America secretly dropped 2.7 million tonnes of ordinance on Cambodia, which (alongside Lon Nol's US backed insurgency) helped in the Slaughter of 600,000 Cambodians prior to Pol Pot & also devastated the agricultural areas which helped create the famine which killed 1 million people later under Pol Pot & possibly made the Khymer Rouge mad enough to kill 600,000 U.S. sympathisers (which we in the West pretend was a nihilistic moment of madness rather than retaliation for our atrocities).

""The still-incomplete database (it has several “dark” periods) reveals that
from October 4, 1965, to August 15, 1973, the United States dropped far
more ordnance on Cambodia than was previously believed: 2,756,941
tons’ worth, dropped in 230,516 sorties on 113,716 sites. Just over 10 percent
of this bombing was indiscriminate, with 3,580 of the sites listed as
having “unknown” targets and another 8,238 sites having no target listed
at all. The database also shows that the bombing began four years earlier
than is widely believed — not under Nixon, but under Lyndon Johnson."

IRAN :

In 1953, the United States overthrew the only democratic leader Iran ever had; Mossedegh, at the request of the British SIS (MI6).

Mossedegh had decided to stop Britain from stealing it's natural resources (Oil) & give the profits back to the rightful owner's, namely the Iranian people.

Having expelled British dimplomats from the country, the British turned to America to plan & operate the coup.

Afterwards, the United States reinstalled the Shah & trained his brutal secret police force; The Savak, who killed & tortured 1000's of people for decades.

The CIA in Iran
New York Times Special

* Britain, fearful of Iran's plans to nationalize its oil industry, came up with the idea for the coup in 1952 and pressed the United States to mount a joint operation to remove the prime minister

REFORMING U.S. INTELLIGENCE, Allan E. Goodman

"The CIA's close relationship with SAVAK also caused the agency to refuse to collect information - under ground rules set by the White House against spying on the shah - about the torture and other abuses that this secret-police organization used to repress the regime's opponents."

Allan E. Goodman former Presidential Briefing Coordinator for the Director of Central Intelligence and Special Assistant to the Director of the National Foreign sment Center in the Carter administration.

United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3379, adopted on November 10, 1975 by a vote of 72 to 35 (with 32 abstentions), "determine[d] that Zionism is a form of racism and racial discrimination". The resolution is often referenced in debates of Zionism and racism. The resolution was revoked by Resolution 46/86 on December 16, 1991.

United Nations General Assembly Resolution 46/86 passed on December 16, 1991, revoked Resolution 3379 with a vote of 111 to 25, with 13 abstentions.
Israel made revocation of resolution 3379 a condition of its participation in the Madrid Peace Conference, in progress in the last quarter of 1991. Under pressure from the administration of President George H.W. Bush in the United States, the UN passed the resolution. The text of the revocation was simply:
"The general assembly decides to revoke the determination contained in its resolution 3379 (XXX) of 10 November 1975." This formed resolution 46/86, which is one of the shortest in UN history. During this session, President Bush told the General Assembly:
"...to equate Zionism with the intolerable sin of racism is to twist history and forget the terrible plight of Jews in World War II and indeed throughout history."
