Human Rights Watch says Western countries, including the US, play a major role in generating or aggravating most of today's crises across the world by facilitating rights abusers' crimes.
The director of the leading human rights group, Kenneth Roth said governments increasingly deem human rights a luxury they fail to properly afford; and this in turn fans the flames of global crises. Roth stressed that the rights records of countries such as the US is full of wrongdoings, which provide a fertile ground for proliferation of extremist groups such as the ISIL. He specifically referred to the 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq as an instance of these violations. The HRW chief was citing the rights group's world report 2015.
