(ECNS) -- The China Society for Human Rights Studies (CSHRS) on Tuesday released a report, revealing that U.S. crimes have not only led to frequent and repeated wars in the Middle East and other places, plunging them into the quagmire of conflict and security dilemmas, but seriously undermined the right to life, health, personal dignity, freedom of religious belief, survival and development.
Titled “U.S. Commits Serious Crimes of Violating Human Rights in the Middle East and Beyond”, the CSHRS report focused on Washington's systematic violations of human rights, including launching wars, massacring civilians, and damaging the right to life and survival; forced transformation, unilateral sanctions, severe infringement on rights to development, life and health; creating a "clash of civilizations" by imprisonment and torture, and violating freedom of religion and human dignity.
The report underlines the fact that the United States has committed war crimes, crimes against humanity, arbitrary detention, abuse of torture, torture of prisoners, and indiscriminate unilateral sanctions in the Middle East and surrounding areas.
Statistics from the U.S. Smithsonian Institution Magazine has shown that since 2001, wars and military operations launched by the United States in the name of "anti-terrorism" covered "about 40 percent of the countries on the planet." The warmongering United States has caused direct, serious and lasting damage to local people's right to life and survival, the report notes.
The United States has wantonly suppressed non-compliant countries and organizations in the Middle East, and coercively promoted American values in the region, to ensure U.S.-dominated global political, economic and security order, says the report.
The report adds that its essential goal is to maintain America's military, economic and conceptual hegemony, which in consequence has altered the independent development paths of regional countries and severely undermined the sovereignty of related countries in the Middle East as well as their people's rights to development and health.
Facts show that the United States has seriously violated the basic human rights of local people in the Middle East and other places, causing permanent damage and irreparable losses to countries and people in the region. The nature of American hegemony and the barbarity, cruelty and perniciousness of its power politics have been completely exposed, and the people of the world have a better understanding of the hypocrisy and deception of the American democracy and the American human rights, the report concludes.
