Feels like home

Unknown number of people, locked away in an undisclosed location or locations around the world, for unlimited time, without charge, without fair trail or any trail, under unknown circumstances, meaning they may have been tortured or humiliated, this sounds like something the KGB would do, or maybe Saddam, but no. this is the president of the country which claims to be the leader of the free world, and for you who don’t know what I'm talking about, this the United States of America.
Thank for very much Mr. Bush, and in your face for you all who said that I lacked "Moral Equivalence", I hope you are reading this, and I hope, with all my heart, that you say something to me about it. There is in America now, a president who is an outlaw, and he is not as cool as Jessie James, or as smart as the Luther, he is stupid, ignorant, arrogant, and crazy.
But don’t think that he is doing this out of the goodness of his heart, or because he came around, or because he wants to accept the rule of the Supreme Court (which ruled earlier that these prisons and Guantanamo prison violate both the American constitution and the Geneva Convention. Add to that, it ruled that the special tribunals that government wants to hold for the detainees in those prisons are illegal and unconstitutional). No sir, this is game he is playing…. Wait a minute…. He is not that smart to do this, this is what his advisors told him to say to try to corner the democrats, to put them on defense for upcoming elections.
So he is just toying with the people, so democratic of him, and so clever of you, all of you who gave this man a second term.
Is that the democracy you came thousands of miles and spend billions of dollars and lost more than 2000 men and women to teach us? Ok, I understand the concept of democracy and the rule of law now, or at least the American version. You say it but you don’t do it, you tell other people to do it, and make them believe that you do it too. Just make sure to have lots of nuclear bombs and a strong economy, and then do whatever you want, and screw everybody else. Kindda like live and let die. Cool, isn’t it?
Now someone might argue that there people do not deserve to be treated like humans, because of all the horrible things they have done. But wait second!!! What about the people who killed more than 100,000 Iraqis, what about the people who for 13 years had nothing to do but to kill little babies? Which wasn't enough for them by the way, but the came all the way across the oceans to kill the rest and destroy what little left to destroy.
What is wrong with you people? It is you who lack moral equivalence, hell you don’t have any morals at al. when you murder, destroy, torture, lie, cheat, violate humane rights, it is always for the good. But when others do it they are evil. Does that seem moral to you?
Secret prisons, unlawful detention, detention without charge, illegal wire tapping, ignoring the Supreme Court, lying to the public……… this really feels like home.

Thank you - Have the Centre for Research on Globalization bookmarked from ages ago, but do not visit it all that often.

I will read the article now.

You are right about bush, too. He's a crazy idiot. One of the most dangerous kinds of people to have power.

I gave you a plug over at

Another great blog there. I am becoming more concerned by the day that the US govt is intent on attacking Iran at all costs.

I read the article at CRG and found it to be complex and thought-provoking. I will need to read it again in a day or so - the thought process can be slow for someone my age.

Please post again soon. I want nothing more than to end the occupation of your country and the suffering of her citizens.
