Bruce: Its about time government take responsibility for its actions and harm. Maybe government(s) will think their policies through and pay attention to the details. I don't think it is fair for government (any government) to hide behind legislation to avoid taking responsibly for the harm it does to its own citizen and others. Its one thing to make a few mistakes. Everyone does. We can forgive a few mistakes. But when those mistakes are done over and over, again and again, year after year, and when the evidence shows it is a mistake with the harm and a government continues to make the same mistake on purpose, it become criminal. One prime example is the narcophobe war machine (drug war). People in Latin America could sue the US for the horrible damages caused by the laws and policies and how they have created black markets and how these policies and laws have decimated whole communities and corrupted entire cultures, killing and ruining millions of lives, leaving a trail of bloodshed all across America and the western hemisphere. Again making a few mistakes is one thing and even forgivable, but after 40-50 years of an insane policy, that war machine needs to come to an end and it's victims both direct and indirectly, compensated. The insiders of Washington know by now how wrong they were and know the US owes compensation. They are either trying to hood wink the public and victims or trying to find an opportunity to do so. Doing so will show the US has a conscience, hopefully. Perhaps having people being able to sue such large institutions like government, will make those institutions think their policies through and be willing to reevaluate, modify and/or repeal them to reduce the harm and damages to its own peoples and their society and to explore other solutions other than harmful "knee jerk" political solutions.
