Much has been made of the clear violations of the Geneva Accords by Nazi USA, but the provisions of these accords are not known to most Americans. Now is the time to become familiar with these accords, detailed on the website of the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights. See: http://www.unhchr.ch/html/menu3/b/91.htm
These principles were drawn up in 1949 and enacted in 1950, as a direct response to the horrors perpetrated by Nazi Germany during World War 2, which was officially 1939-1945, although the war against Spain, 1936-1939, is often cited as the opening shots of World War 2.
