I think it is symptomatic of the rapid re-arrangement of the world order that while Amerika released it's worldwide human right report this week and, as is usual, targeted China as a major offender, China is feeling strong enough to call Amerika on it's own record.
"Relying on its strong military power, the United States has trespassed on the sovereignty of other countries and violated human rights in other countries," Xinhua quoted the document as saying, released by the State Council, or cabinet.
It cited foreign media reports in detailing the number of civilian deaths in Iraq.
"The document says the United States has a flagrant record of violating the Geneva Convention in systematically abusing prisoners during the Iraqi war and the war in Afghanistan," Xinhua said.
