"http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/06/05/human.trafficking.ap/index.html" [Broken] Clearly, the U.S. believes and rightly so, that such actions are not right. However, I believe that the U.S., being committed to only a particular part of the planet, and therefore only particular individuals and not all individuals, precluded the possibility of it having the moral authority with ALL individuals, including all of its own citizens. Now, one could delve into the past of the U.S. and cite many moral inconsistencies with its administrations, but one could delve into any nation's past and do the same. What's done was done. The purpose of the current thread is to simply ask whether or not you believe that the U.S. has the moral authority, with either its own citizens only or with all citizens everywhere, to oppose activities anywhere that are inherently harmful and dehumanizing? If you like, indicate whether or not you are a U.S. citizen. I am a Canadian citizen only.
