Now that The New York Times has finally come out for a full on war crimes trial, naming Cheney et.al (but not Bush?) it’s only a matter of time before justice is served. Looks like “enhanced interrogation” is about to get a new definition. The old one. It’s a curious omission not to have included The Decider into the mix though. Very curious indeed. I can just see Cheney trying to cop a plea by giving up Bush as the “mastermind” behind the whole ordeal! Maybe it’s just my fantasy.
I joined the Army two days after the 9/11 attacks. I joined the Army because our country had been attacked. I wanted to strike back at those who had killed some 3,000 of my fellow citizens. I did not join the Army to go to Iraq, a country that had no part in the September 2001 attacks and did not pose a threat to its neighbors, much less to the United States. I did not join the Army to “liberate” Iraqis or to shut down mythical weapons-of-mass-destruction facilities or to implant what you cynically called “democracy” in Baghdad and the Middle East. I did not join the Army to rebuild Iraq, which at the time you told us could be paid for by Iraq’s oil revenues.
The trend to put everything in a click-bait listicle has led to the invention of the word itself.
Would it be too much to ask for a listicle of the doctors who scientifically decided exactly how hard we could physically abuse prisoners-of-war?
Did they strap an iPhone onto the prisoners and capture the data on a “health and fitness” app as they bounced them off the walls?
I dunno, but it seems kinda ‘war crime’ish” to me and I want to avoid those doctors who engaged in this type of medicine in any case. Who has the list? Is it left for me to come up with a listicle of listicles that have been overlooked for far too long?
As we approach the 2014 election season, never forget the blood-lust of the Republican party cheering on President Bush the Torturer while watching him commit the most heinous acts of brutality against humanity in the history of America. All on the basis of “legal” advice from this one guy – John Yoo.
I was absolutely shocked when I first heard the exchange, and you don’t have to read too far between the lines to wonder where the question of torturing children’s testicles came from in the first place. It’s not the kind of question that gets randomly tossed out. It’s yet another piece of ‘missing history’.
Prove It or Lose It
If there is a truly moral Christian soldier among the whole lot of the otherwise worthless religious wankers, I’d sure like to see it put to a better use than public prayers after the Church pot luck social.
To all the God slobbering, Jeebus’ loving, creationist-leaning, lunatic fringe Christians out there:
I once heard a song about how much Jeebus loved the children, all the children of the world. Red and Yellow. Black and White. They were precious in his sight.
If that’s still true, then how about taking time out of your busy schedules of homosexual hating and helping do what you know Jeebus would want you to do for the children? Speak out forcefully from your pulpits for justice to be served! I don’t think Jeebus would have approved of slicing up little Iraqi kids testicles with razors to make their daddy “confess” to the whereabouts of Bush’s fantasy weapons. There’s no stature of limitations on war crimes.
