The U.S. Pisses on the OAS Charter

Let’s just say what we all know to be true: The United States pisses on international law. Period.

There is something called the Charter of the Organization of the American States (OAS). The OAS is a continental organization that was founded on 30 April 1948, for the purposes of regional solidarity and cooperation among its member states. The Charter lists out the articles by which all member states will abide.

Let’s take a look at the many articles the United States has violently violated:

Chapter 2, Article 3, Sections (b), (e), (g), (h):

The American States reaffirm the following principles:

(b) International order consists essentially of respect for the personality, sovereignty, and independence of States, and the faithful fulfillment of obligations derived from treaties and other sources of international law;

(e)     Every State has the right to choose, without external interference, its political, economic, and social system and to organize itself in the way best suited to it, and has the duty to abstain from intervening in the affairs of another State. Subject to the foregoing, the American States shall cooperate fully among themselves, independently of the nature of their political, economic, and social systems;

(g)     The American States condemn war of aggression: victory does not give rights;

(h)     An act of aggression against one American State is an act of aggression against all the other American States;

Chapter 4, Article 15:

The right of each State to protect itself and to live its own life does not authorize it to commit unjust acts against another State.

Chapter 4, Article 19:

No State or group of States has the right to intervene, directly or indirectly, for any reason whatever, in the internal or external affairs of any other State. The foregoing principle prohibits not only armed force but also any other form of interference or attempted threat against the personality of the State or against its political, economic, and cultural elements.

Chapter 4, Article 20:

No State may use or encourage the use of coercive measures of an economic or political character in order to force the sovereign will of another State and obtain from it advantages of any kind.

Chapter 4, Article 21:

The territory of a State is inviolable; it may not be the object, even temporarily, of military occupation or of other measures of force taken by another State, directly or indirectly, on any grounds whatever. No territorial acquisitions or special advantages obtained either by force or by other means of coercion shall be recognized.

Chapter 4, Article 22:

The American States bind themselves in their international relations not to have recourse to the use of force, except in the case of self­-defense in accordance with existing treaties or in fulfillment thereof.

Chapter 6, Article 28:

Every act of aggression by a State against the territorial integrity or the inviolability of the territory or against the sovereignty or political independence of an American State shall be considered an act of aggression against the other American States.

Chapter 7, Article 35:

The Member States should refrain from practicing policies and adopting actions or measures that have serious adverse effects on the development of other Member States.

Who needs charters, treaties, or laws when you have power!?

Any questions?

Thanks for reading,
