US fails to practise what it preaches

One law for the US, another for everyone else? Like some of its Bible-Belt preachers, the US preaches democracy, justice, human rights etc; but conveniently ignores these preachings when dealing with its own "enemies".

The summary execution of Osama bin Laden will spawn thousands more terrorists than would have come to prominence if he was still alive, and of course this is good for US security firms, which thrive on terrorist threats, real or imagined.

The US should really try to practise what it preaches!
