A hero does not shoot an unarmed man in the back, then pose for trophy photo.

SORRY, NO. And I've seen this composition before. Abu Ghraib. Or any of the trophy shots found on the digital cameras of US soldiers in free fire zones. These officers are holding up for display a critically injured man struggling to breathe. Shortly he'll be interrogated while still in intensive care, while America pretends this is justice. 44131

Almost forgot to title this one about a Traitor Iraqi “hero” in Colorado Springs

It's illegal for SOME Private Citizens to keep people in torture dungeons, but not for Halliburton, Exxon-Mobil, Blackwater etc on whose behalf a young Iraqi TRAITOR turned in his own family several years ago to the American Puppet Regime. Now the little puke is 19 and is still being hailed as a hero by the Colorado Springs War-Pig Establishment such as KOAA New 5 and the Gazette. And how is the American War Regime different from Saddam Hussein? For one thing, they actually HAVE weapons of mass destruction, more of all three major classes, Biological, Chemical and Nuclear, than all the rest of the world combined. So when PIGS like the recent attackers in Oakland and Atlanta go off on "their own citizens" as though we were THEIR "own" property, right? beating down, using toxic gas, plastic bullets that break bones, the coward torture freaks are actually Protected by the U.S. Government. Like the Army, CIA, Blackwater, other publicly funded Private Torture Services, they get paid to get their little sexual giggles from torturing people. Like the father of the Scum Coward Little Bitch Traitor. I wonder if the Military Police who sponsor him show him pictures of them torturing

War is over, so they say…

Said, in different words, that the illegal conquest Iraqi Oilfields and National Prison-camp Ghetto Rebuilding has been secured and that the Iraqi Puppet Army and Police are sufficiently trained in Western Style Police Brutality. What a victory for Righteousness and Decency! Strange that they never found all those WMDs, though, ain't it? Meanwhile neighboring Syria and Iran are targeted and Guess Which Really Stupid Lie They're Telling Us to justify that? Go on, guess... Ok I'll tell you. WMDs. Apparently a nation like the U.S. which employs torture and assassinations that have historically killed about twenty times as many non-combatants as they do "terrorists" and many of whose political leaders believe they should establish a fundamentalist religious dictatorship worldwide, is the only nation morally fit to have WMDs. Add in that the U.S., which has more of every class of weapon than the entire rest of the world combined, is also the only nation to have used all three classes of WMD, Biological, Nuclear and Chemical. And routinely uses gas and is experimenting with mass Pain weapons against "their own" citizens. Sort of a high-tech version of what they accuse Gadafi and Hussein of doing. And make no mistake, the American Cop or Soldier

For #NeverForget 9/11 #LetsRoll types

This poster says it all, doesn't it? Between "Never" & "Forget" are the Twin Towers framed by a Pentagon. Then there's Dumbass & Dumbo, the TSA grope, the GI thumbs up trophy snapshot, Abu Ghraib torture, Guantanamo illegal detention, and to silence those who would complain, the militarized riot police. All smiles. 9/11 Let's Roll!

The US Special Forces as a lily-white military career, a post-mortem survey

The US Department of Defense finally released the list of US soldiers killed on the NATO MH-47 Chinook helicopter downed in Afghanistan. Median age was in high 30s, which is unsurprising for highly trained Special Ops, but isn't it interesting that the usual disproportionate percentage of Americans of Color as cannon fodder (see casualty figures) doesn't extend to the higher-paid military career jobs?   Huge props of course to African Americans who decide against being career hitmen. And let's not neglect the exclusively white composition of the Abu Ghraib snap shot perps, and the docket, however sparse, of other US soldiers accused of war crimes.

Congratulations, Military Families, on your new Spiritual Caretaker!

From Salon's Glenn Greenwald and Antiwar.com writer Tom Engelhardt for pointing this out, your new Chief Psychologist who will be taking care of the spiritual and emotional needs and problems of your families, is the Former Chief Torturer at Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib. Yes, a Sick, Sadistic pervert who gets sexually aroused by the pain of others, is now going to be advising YOUR kids. Let's be clear here, shall I? of course I shall. Torturers are Sadists. They get their sexual giggles from hurting other people. They have to have unwilling non-consensual partners is this. That's politely called RAPE. It's either non-consensual or no boner. Masochist: "Hurt me" Sadist: "No". Just wouldn't be fun for them if the "partner" is willing. Dr. Larry James was previously best known as the Chief Psychologist at Guantanamo in 2003, at the height of the abuses at that camp, and then served in the same position at Abu Ghraib during 2004. Quite a CV, and now it seems hes just been appointed to a White House Task Force, with a mouthful of a name, Enhancing the Psychological Well-Being of The Military Family.

‘Call us when WE behead somebody’ …again.

So, what happens when we do WORSE than behead somebody? Say, for instance, gut-shoot a third-world person knowing full well that the only place in town which can treat an abdominal wound is a hospital associated with whatever torture regime we're propping up, or a US Military Hospital who will patch the dude up and then turn him over to somebody like the Saigon Torture Regime? Which is what these rifles were designed for doing. Not for a humane quick kill. 23388

Jeep declares war on intellect.

They're sponsoring Call of Duty:whateverthehellnumber : BlackOps. In the Jeep commercial they show screenshots of a Black Jeep SUV in some tropical location that exists only in the imaginations of the designers of the game, who never got closer to actual war than speeding up as they passed the Army Recruiter's office on their way to a College Republicans meeting. Call of "Duty"? BlackOps is not very discrete code for Murder, Kidnap and Torture, in other words, REAL terrorism funded and backed by a massive military industrial complex. Of which the manufacturers of Jeep are a proud member-group. BlackOps is not anybody's "Duty" it's a pleasure romp for people who enjoy killing and enjoy torture and enjoy the feeling of helpless victims fearing them. The sick bastards who play the game on their computers in their Moms' basements and fantasize killing are only slightly less sick than the ones who go out and commit the actual Murders, kidnaps and tortures. Or the political bastards who order the Terroristic BlackOps strikes. Games like that destroy your own capacity to think rationally, it's a downward spiral into being the formerly human equivalent of a mechanical drone. THEY push your launch buttons and aim you toward

Racist Arizona Law, the Mosque and the connection

The Arizona State police are running cover for the Murdering Scum Minutemen who killed among others Raul and Brisea Flores, father and 9 year old Daughter, both of them American. The PIGS are parroting the unproved Racist Minutemen accusation that Raul was a drug dealer. Easy to do when the accused is Dead. The Racists who did that, the Racists who cover for them, are the same Racist TeaBags who are leading the charge against freedom of Religion, having killed one person, at least, burned at least one Community Center in Murfreesboro Tennessee, an assault on a darker-skinned construction worker at the ground zero memorial, because he was wearing a Rastafarian tee-shirt. Rastafarian is a Christian sect., but they say he "looked" muslim so it's all right. And, it doesn't stop with simple assaults, arsons and murders. There's also the notion of giving the PIGS even MORE powers to arrest people simply for being "different". Which is a violent act. 19756

Swiss refuse to hand over Polanski, US upset, still haven’t handed over Bush

Not trying to minimalize or trivialize date-rape or child molesting, but that's ONE count against Mr Polanski and (at least) Hundreds of Thousands of counts of Murder, including and especially children, against Messieurs Bush, Cheney, Rove, Petraeus, McChrystal, Rumsfeld, Prince, McCain, Kristol, "scooter" Libby, Murdoch, O'Reilly, Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, Dobbs, Mesdames Rice, Malkin, Palin, Bachmann, Coulter and any other Accomplices in the Wars started with, enabled by and continued under the auspices of, blatant acts of Perjury. The charges of War Crimes against these "leaders" and propagandists are consistent with United States policies as expressed during the Nunrberg Trials against officials of the nation of Deutschland and the Vichy Government of France (which had been diplomatically recognized by the U.S.) and "collaborators" including and especially Propagandists, such as Axis Annie, Tokyo Rose and Lord Haw-Haw. 18689

Illegal Alien costume has a Green Card

It's called the Illegal Alien Costume, available at Target, Walmart, et al. And look-- he's tendering a Green Card! That means he's overqualified to work the night shift cleaning super center floors. Immigrant rights activists are calling for the retailers to pull the costumes. No human being is illegal, certainly not #1 enemy of the state, which most Americans associate the Gitmo jumpsuit. Halloween party planners say, lighten up! Political Correctness goes too far to ask us to show sensitivity for the thousands of undocumented workers being rounded up by ICE, incarcerated indefinitely in privately operated Wackenhut detention centers, who may or may not be wearing orange Guantanamo prison garb. When Abu Ghraib type snapshots emerge from these DHS funded facilities, next year's Halloween xenophobic gag may be for adults only.

Another ACORN thought…

DumFox Noose and their Demented Minions (selectively) Strike Again!?   Now, I used to work for ACORN. Twice. Once in Texas and registering votes in 2004.? 9734

Why be bothered by horrors of detainees

President Obama is blocking the release of further detainee abuse photos. Would more images of outrages committed against US detainees inflame sentiment against US troops? No doubt. Would more of such photos add nothing to the national dialog? Well... If you consider that the media is still vacillating on the definition of waterboarding, torturers and the lawyers who sanctioned torture are being exempted from prosecution, and war criminals like Dick Cheney are bragging about their participation, maybe there's room for more dialog. 7749

The American Caterpillar stormtroopers

Here come the stormtroopers with their American made caterpillar. Jewish Human Rights Activist Ezra Nawi now tries to stop this nasty American bug! Ezra then goes to jail as the stormtrooper gang has a jolly good time.   Doesn't all this remind you of the American fun and games crew over at Abu Ghraib? See it and weep, Kids.

Cheney and other Perverted Torture Freak Scum…

There's a standard, a psychological finding used to determine when somebody is a serial killer, and determine whether he is worthy of the death penalty. The prosecution doesn't actually NEED it in many cases, but they always do the testing and make the determination. 7526

Harold Pinter on drama and US banditry

"What has happened to our moral sensibility? Did we ever have any? What do these words mean? Do they refer to a term very rarely employed these days - conscience? A conscience to do not only with our own acts but to do with our shared responsibility in the acts of others? Is all this dead?" -Harold Pinter (1930-2008) 5861

Dr. Bousa and the CIA

One could easily overlook certain political world happenings and believe that the Arab Lounge's Ask Dr. Bousa is nothing more than yet another page in another innocuous single's meat market web site. However$$$? 4173

Muslim graves desecrated by Nazis

Times change yet somehow remain quite the same, it seems. The International Christian Right has found common cause today with the Jews it once hated so. French Muslim war graves defaced Does this have anything to do with US government torture of Muslims captured? Be the judge.

Lynndie England…

Remember her? Starlet of RightWing Torture Porn?   Now she's saying that the torture and degradation she put on the prisoners at Abu Ghraib didn't cause all the outrage about their treatment, It Was Our REPORTING The Incident that caused the trouble. 2889

Call out Alliant Techsystems & CACI too

Other military industries complicit in war crimes in Iraq have offices in Colorado Springs at Academy and Fountain Blvds.   ATK Alliant Techsystems is the leading supplier of Depleted Uranium, which is poisoning the Iraqi populace as well as our soldiers. Ft Carson vets who father children with birth defects will know whom they can hold responsible.   Likewise, CACI International provides "security solutions" to our boys overseas. Celebrated, ie leaked, examples were the torture methods employed at Abu Ghraib.   To be fair, abuses at Abu Ghraib were also administered by Colorado Springs neighbor TITAN CORP, now L-3 Communications Titan Group.   Isn't it amazing that so many culprits of Iraq atrocities are represented in Colorado Springs, at ACADEMY AND FOUNTAIN?! Our visit on Tuesday will be straight into the midst of these callous profiteers.

COS military-industrial complex HQ

Almost all of the defense industry giants earning the largest profits in this war on terror have offices in Colorado Springs. Here's a cluster at the intersection of Academy and Fountain Blvds:     Lockheed Martin, 1150 Academy Park Loop #1     Boeing, 1330 Inverness #2     Northrop Grumman, 1330 Inverness #3     General Dynamics, 1330 Inverness #4     Raytheon, 1330 Inverness     #5     Mitre, 1155 Academy Park Loop     Intecon, 1050 South Academy Boulevard and the ill-reported Iraq War opportunists:     Alliant Techsystems, 1250 Academy Park Loop (depleted uranium)     BAE Systems, 1150 Academy Park Loop (armor)     CACI International, 1250 Academy Park Loop (Abu Ghraib)     L-3 Communications TITAN Group, 1150 Academy Park Loop (Abu Ghraib)

Camp Bucca is not in Minnesota

I have done sort of a personal poll recently by asking folk if they have heard of Camp Bucca. Almost nobody has, since after Abu Ghraib Doctor Franken Rummy and Attorney General 'Cinco de Mayo' Gonzalez set out to hide away the continuation of Abu Ghraib from public (and media) scrutiny. 1729
