More Cheney heart(less) Surgery… so remember the rule

Dance first, THEN piss…(mustn’t get our shoes all wet and stinky)

He hasn’t, alas, made the journey yet. He is however having more surgeries, mostly because he’s stupid and arrogant and won’t follow medical advice. Like not getting drunk while using his pacemaker.

It’s worth notice that he received care unavailable to any other American who, unlike him, hasn’t got a trillion dollars in stolen money stashed in his corporate coffers. Americans of his age and outrageously stupid health-maintenance habits. His money only borrowed extra time to add up more points against his Immortal Soul taking the old “up” elevator. People who have to depend on either Corporate Health “care” or Medicare/Medicaid/CHAMPVA/TriCare would be refused such treatment if they behave as stupidly as he does.

Or, and much more importantly, if they just don’t happen to be in a position of political power or extreme (stolen) wealth, thus the Corporate Medical Establishment doesn’t consider their lives to be worth saving. Something Mr Cheney “heart”ily endorses.

His lawyer-friend, the one from that infamous incident where they were both so drunk that Cheney couldn’t tell the difference between a 200 pound Corrupt Texas Lawyer and a 2 pound bird… (Cheney says “Duck!” and his accomplice jumps up and says “Where?”) might take the ferry-ride across Styx on the same trip. One can only hope, mostly because it would be amusing to think of Cheney trying to get his lawyer to plea-bargain for him.

My hope, in the off chance that there is no Hell awaiting him, is that he takes a few days to die. And in as much pain as any of the Torture Victims whose “enhanced interrogation” sessions he and Bush watched as porn.

The Ministry of Love (because non- compliance must be CRAZY right?)

In the book “1984” Winston Smith is arrested, and taken to the Ministry of Love, which in DoubleSpeak meant a Prison with a brainwashing facility. AKA, a psychiatric torture chamber. Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn, held in a similar facility, in the Soviet Union, was described as Mentally Ill by the Soviets and the Western Propaganda Media called it a Gulag, a Concentration Camp and … Ministry of Love. When Massimo Tartaglia busted Berlusconi in the face by throwing a Church at him (literally, it was a model of the main cathedral in Milan), The GodlessFather Berlusconi first had a press release where Signor Tartaglia was taped begging his forgiveness, a “Ring Kissing” ceremony if ever I saw one. Berlusconi said he forgave him. And said two days later, as he was being bundled into his car, that “Love conquers hate”.

This being the Hate-filled Fascist Prick who expressed so much “love” for the policies of Hitler and Mussolini. Who “Loved” the Iraqi people so much, along with the former Fascist PM of Spain, that he joined the Bush Regime in bombing living Hell out of them.

Tartaglia was declared on Monday to be “unfit to stand trial” and the Italian “justice” Bureau ordered him to be kept in the Italian Psychiatric Ministry of Love until such time as they could prosecute him and make him start on the official punishmeLove Session. Meanwhile, behind closed “hospital” doors and “protected” from Human Rights scrutiny by the Loving medical privacy laws, so we’re told, he’s not being given pain causing drugs, held naked in a bare concrete cell or placed in painful restraints, or if he is, it’s not torture in any way.

No, using psychiatric facilities as Torture Dungeons is something only bad wicked people like the Soviets would ever do. Not “civilized” people like Berlusconi, or for that matter his Fascist Idol Mussolini.

Here’s the Fascist Prick immediately afterward. Sic Semper Piggus!

Oooh, I bet that gander doesn’t taste nearly as good with all the Goose Sauce on it…. What goes around comes back around, Baby, and you just got run over by a Karma.

Meanwhile, the Iraqi Puppet Government denies that they mistreated Prisoner of War Muntadhar al Zaidi after he stood up to his American Masters, and the U.S. Air Force “doctors” who had him in THEIR custody for the better part of a week before turning him over to their Puppet Dictatorship “Ministry of Love” also deny Torture allegations.

Bush wants to torture Khalid Sheikh Mohammed again

Bush stands behind torture of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, says he’d “do it again to save lives.” Yesterday, former President Bush spoke at the Economic Club of Grand Rapids, MI, where he said that had no regrets about waterboarding Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the self-professed 9/11 mastermind, and would do it again.

According to Fox 17 in Grand Rapids, Bush “didn’t allow cameras inside for the event,” but reporters caught his remarks:

“Yeah, we waterboarded Khalid Sheikh Mohammed … I’d do it again to save lives.”

Waterboarding Mohammed 183 times didn’t save any lives. In fact, Mohammed told U.S. military officials that he gave false information to the CIA after withstanding torture. Additionally, a former Special Operations interrogator who worked in Iraq has stated that waterboarding has actually cost American lives:

“The number of U.S. soldiers who have died because of our torture policy will never be definitively known, but it is fair to say that it is close to the number of lives lost on Sept. 11, 2001.”

Bush will never be prosecuted for committing this crime he has now admitted to, because the Democrats, too support the use of government torture against Pentagon held POWs.

Should US torturers of 15-year-old combatant Omar Khadir stay unnamed?

Extending the jurisdiction of military tribunals to civilians and adversaries is not simply unpopular, it’s illegal, and America’s kangaroo courts in Guantanamo mock even self respect. Right now we’re prosecuting Afghanistan combatant Omar Khadr, captured when he was age 15, for lobbing a grenade toward US invaders (are any of our GIs guilty of less?) meanwhile obscuring the identity of American soldiers culpable of torture and murder. Last week four key reporters were banned from Guantanamo proceedings for having revealed the name of “Interrogator #1” guilty of past episodes for abuse of detainees including a death. His name: US Army Specialist Joshua Claus.

How many of these anonymity-seeking torturers can we out on the web? From mercenaries to repentant vets, the least we can do for the memories of their victims and their captives’ loved ones is to publish their identities in public.

You might see the wisdom in protecting the confidentiality of witnesses who were victims of sexual abuse, but perps? Of course a chief problem of military tribunals in addition to permitting testimony obtained through torture is the use of unnamed accusers. Convictions obtained through tribunals will stand up so long as the USA reigns omniscient, but in the eyes of international justice, the US and its torturers remain criminals at large.

Amateurish Bomb fails to go off, DHS to the rescue…

So, let’s see, A “Major Break” in terrorist infiltrators involving somebody with Pakistan ties “confessing” to buying large amounts of a solvent used as PVC cement that you can buy in 55 gallon drums without raising any suspicion, Methyl Ether Ketone, in a weaker formulation used for nail polish remover at a rough estimate of maybe 100 times as much price. That’s enough to raise my ol’ Suspicious Meter a hair. It’s touted as “sharp eyed Citizen Detective Work” or some similar bullshit.
Next there’s the Panty Bomber… hummmm….

Now, a bomb that should have been, from the description thereof, a large smoking hole in the middle of Times Square with a few tons of Human-Burger spattered on the walls of adjacent buildings.

It even started smoking. Had a great big timer made from a child’s toy clock in the windshield. Yep, nothing says discrete like

A Cartoon Time Bomb Even Worse than THIS...

I mean, Dayumn, son, why not have the Keystone Kops parade a few of these in the Evidentiary Hearings at court?

yep, a smoking gun if ever I saw one.

I tried to find a cartoon of a gun leaning up against a lamp-post smoking a cigarette, the pun is beautiful.

Now, we’re not talkin’ a couple of guppies that died a few hours ago, we’re talking about a whole boatload of dead fish that’s been out in the sun for a few days. There’s so much “setup” involved here, it has to be a joke, except the “Kill them all, then waterboard them” crowd takes it as Gospel.

Each of these “GWOT Success Stories” comes right at a crucial juncture, like during a debate over whether the Gitmo Concentration Camp Detainees should be defined as Real Human Beings who actually deserve PROOF or at least more proof than “we said they’re guilty, what more do you want?” Torture Freak Perverts who run the Illegal Prison.

And once again, I’m going to remind the Torture Freaks of the fact that Torture is Rape, and the torturers are Unregistered Sexual Predators (Perverts of the worst order) and need to be imprisoned in solitary confinement for the rest of their unnatural lives.

It doesn’t help the case of the War On Terror propagandists that they actually promised to lie to us and told us bluntly that we were morally required to believe anything they tell us, no matter how stupid and obviously false it is.

Oh, to continue, somehow, this fellow has confessed to not only attempted the Car Bomb That Looks Like A Car Toon but that he was a Highly Trained al Qa’eda Bombmaker. Uh… No. Propane or gasoline bombs are on the internet, the makings for them are simple.

You need fuel, air and a spark. It’s the basis of the Spudzooka, the motor on your lawnmower and the motor in your car. You don’t need any kind of “special training” to make one.

Things that go “Boom” in the night aren’t a genius level implementation, the only thing that’s required is you have to somehow be smart enough not to off yourself or your neighbors. You learn how to make some really hugely powerful explosives in high school chemistry, simply learning What To Avoid Doing.

Some of the recipes are misleading on the safety side. The Anarchist Cookbook for instance offers a recipe for Mercury Fulminate, the basic explosive in blasting caps and percussion caps for firearm ammunition. The recipe leaves out something really important. When the stuff is reacting, transforming from mercury to the fulminate thereof, it fulminates. Makes “smoke” actually a chemical fog, that’s evil looking, evil smelling and will kill you if you breathe it.

That’s not good. Some Anarchists think that for that one reason that William Powell is a provocateur sent to snuff as many would-be anarchists as possible.

Then this Highly Trained al Qa’eda operative, for the past two days has had his PICTURE leaving the scene, all over the internet, the TV news, etc… Since yesterday the News had the person who sold the car as telling the cops “Yeah, I sold that car a few weeks ago” and had given a description to the cops that matched the video…so what does he do? Strolls to the Airport and casually tries to board what any al Qa’eda operative would know is closely watched, because it’s heading for RIYADH… And we, the People, are all supposed to be so STUPID that we’ll not ask any of the questions posed above. That most of them don’t have a (?) at the end doesn’t mean they’re not questions.

This whole scenario we’re supposed to swallow makes Hogan’s Heroes seem High Drama, with Intellectual overtones.
The bumbling Loveable Inefficient Gestapo and Luftwaffe goofs, the Wiley Allied Spies disguised as prisoners always thwarting the machinations of the Loveable Nazi Goofs, seems much more believable than the crap we’re being exposed to right now.

Are all the SEALS cowardly torture freak Perverts, or just these bastards?

Another Torturer let off the hook by a Bush-appointee “prosecutor”. I was going to edit the “cowardly” part out of the title, but then, beating a bound and helpless person isn’t exactly a hallmark of courage “Perverts” because people who beat and torture prisoners, whether in Iraq, Afghanistan, the El Paso County CJC, are in fact rapists. They get sexually aroused from the pain of others, and the more helpless their victims, the better they enjoy it.

The SEALS are supposedly top of the line, most highly trained Murderers in the world So were the SchutzStaffel in their day.

There’s less and less differences between them every passing day. Not only did these Perverts bring shame to themselves, but any of their comrades who allowed them to do it and helped them “get away” with it. If the SEALS don’t have enough pride, dignity and courage to purge their ranks of low-life scum like that, then the SEALS by their own actions call themselves cowards.

To say that your victims are Unlawful Combatants ignores the fact that YOUR OWN part in the war is unlawful. Your commander in Thief started a war based on lies, and you willingly obeyed. You’re in their countries killing, robbing, raping and torturing them, that makes YOU the Unlawful Combatants, and if you’re judged according to the judgment which you mete out, then that’s how it will be. Like your Mercenary Terrorist comrades who got hanged on the bridge at Fallujah and lit on fire.

Am I supposed to plea for you to obtain mercy, when you give none? Or maybe to keep silent on your crimes and thus, support them by passive acceptance?

The way the Navy and indeed, the rest of the Military support these rapists.

The Tag Editor originally put in “Interrogation” when I typed “torture”. The sick perverts weren’t interrogating anybody, they were getting their Sexual Giggles from TORTURE. Pure and simple.

Notice how the Prince of Blackwater talks like a defrocked Catholic priest?

When he talks about his Death Squad Goons being “The New Knights Templars” for instance, he throws in a lot of Ecclesiastic terms.
Which throws open the door for some heavy duty speculative thought.
Why would he be defrocked? According to the latest “news” hooplah, the Church not only doesn’t casually toss aside priests, they don’t defrock them even for really serious crimes.
He also doesn’t talk like somebody who left the Church voluntarily.
Then there’s the revival of the Inquisition methods of torture, against some of the Inquisitions favorite targets, by his associates/accomplices (Murdering cowards like them don’t have “friends”) at the CIA…

There are a few organizations in the world where one can acquire a New Identity, because they have control of documentation that’s almost bulletproof. Most of them connected to National Governments. The governments with whom Blackwater works closely are the ones which provide the most unquestioned documents. Israel, Britain, Spain, the U.S.

There’s one more which provides really good cover, really airtight documentation. The Roman Catholic Church.
Baptismal and Confirmation records are accepted by Social Security and ICE readily.

Is Prince really an American? His Military records could be just as easily fabricated, George W Bush showed that in the ’04 election, where having exactly NO real documentation of actual service isn’t any problem.
Of course it helps if when you’re evading the draft your daddy is a high-ranking government official, like George Senior was.

Gordon Brown says Iraq war “right”

quote: “But the main issue for him was that Iraq was in breach of UN resolutions”
AGAIN with the bullshit LIES about WMDs, how long can these ChickenHawk bastards play THAT card?
“and that “rogue states” could not be allowed to flout international law.”
Unless they’re Rogue States like the Bush Administration and its Puppets like Britain, Chile, Argentina, Honduras, Spain, Israel,….
“If the international community could not act together over Iraq, Mr Brown said, he feared the “new world order we were trying to create would be put at risk”
OH NO! The PNAC and their Satanic “New World Order” wouldn’t be rammed down the throatis of the Rest of The WORLD if America and Britain didn’t put “rogues” in their place.
The Corporate Big Pigs wouldn’t be allowed to run the world any way they God-Damned Please!
What could possibly be worse?

Navy wants immunity for its alibis

There are apparently five navy servicemen who say they can exonerate the Navy Seals accused of beating Iraqi suspect Ahmed Hashim Abed in 2004. But they won’t testify unless granted immunity from prosecution. Say what? Their alibi is illegal? I’ll confess to writing John Yoo’s torture memo if I can be indemnified from responsibility. Wait, Yoo and his lawless wild bunch were let off the hook. And the civil case against Guantanamo for its detainees suicided in interrogation was dismissed. US law down the rabbit hole. Off with their heads — except Americans!

More Torture victims in progress

“Saving his life” Yeah Right. They’re taking him to to a Torture Center, keep him alive long enough to waterboard him and send the videos to Torture Freak Propagandists, like our Local “Gunny” Bob Newman and Michelle Malkin so they can use them as Pig Porn. How ’bout it, “Gunny”? Like seeing a REAL man in pain? Semper Fi, punk. And it makes the Murderers look like Compassionate Heroes instead of the Violent Perverts they really are.

Name, rank, serial number, pantie size

When you’re an al-Qaeda brand POW, you’re expected to give more than the Geneva Conventions’ name, rank and serial number. From Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, US interrogators want to know the who, what and where about the explosives party in his pants but forget HOW the Christmas concoction was supposed to formulate itself into a terrorist attack. Should Americans be assured with the news today that “Abdulmutallab is cooperating with US intelligence?” His captors going back and forth about whether a pantie bomber is entitled to US civil rights sound like coercion of an American citizen to me. On top of the torture.

By all means tell them how you came to wrap yourself in C-4 plastique, more than likely you had a point to make, you might as well express it now. How sad that the American public has forgotten it is entitled to the freedom not to explain.

I went to a baby shower once where guests has to smell diapers filled with melted candy bars, the object being to differentiate one from the other, the gag being that the scenario looked like we were sniffing poo. It’s not a task I would entrust with the TSA. The American public should make their media talking heads do this when another diaper bomber comes up the gangway. Ants in the pants do not constitute an ant army invasion. Loose gunpowder does not a firecracker make. Explosives with no means of detonation do not make a bomber, a bullet in the hand is not worth a gunman.

Did you know John Yoo is not in jail?

john-woo-daily-showThis is the kind of civility that I just can’t stomach. Berkeley Law Professor John Yoo, author of the Torture Memos which Bushco’s blimpnecks took for their greenlight to water-board, was a guest yesterday on the Daily Show. Short of Jon Stewart orchestrating a citizen’s arrest, or reality television setting Gitmo alumni upon Woo like bears on honey, I don’t want to see the John Yoo walking free.

I could see that Stewart had planned some zingers which Yoo was able to dodge, and afterward Stewart behaved like Hannibal Lecter had just passed through, but on the whole I think hosting criminals like Yoo is ill advised. For one, you have to shake his hand. Then of course the nature of television entertainment –unless you are Mike Wallace who’s just strode into the mark’s office– has you trying to make light of the interview, the whole of which has been choreographed for laughs. Worst of all I believe, are the too-many times a host finds himself asking the audience to give it up for the guest.

When Stewart first announced the night’s guest was to be John Yoo, the audience appropriately enough did not cheer. Of course when it came time for the cretin’s entrance, the applause was obligatory. And so it followed, each subsequent punctuation. How else are the audience members supposed to show their enthusiasm? It’s true, their energy is critical to the stage energy.

Stephen Colbert solves the applaud-the-bad-guy paradox by taking a victory lap himself when the audience applauds the introduction of the guest. But usually Colbert’s show specializes in leftist guests with whom the audience is sympathetic, so the maneuver is more for bringing the studio audience unto Colbert’s role-playing for the Right. Integral to his act is an audience that mimics O’Reilly-Limbaugh ditto-heads. A veritable right wing audience could never be brought to even show civility to a guest they’re told is hostile.

And I guess I long for a little more of that genuine sentiment. It began for me when I saw Sarah Palin treated with effusive cordiality on Saturday Night Live. Again the audience was expected to applaud Palin, if in fact they were really just excited to see her roasted.

John Yoo and ilk, the whole Bush troops, must be prosecuted and jailed. That they walk about at large, free to second guess President Obama’s terrorism strategies are nothing to laugh at. I’ll cop to being humorless on this point.

NOTES:
Excerpt, March 13, 2002 Memorandum

“… neither the GPW (Third Geneva Convention) nor the Torture Convention restrict the President’s legal authority to transfer prisoners captured in the Afghanistan conflict to third countries. Although the GPW places conditions on the transfer of POWs, neither al-Qaeda nor Taliban prisoners are legally entitled to POW status, and hence there are no GPW conditions placed on their transfer. While the Torture Convention arguably might govern transfer of these prisoners, it does not apply extraterritorially.”

Excerpt, August 1, 2002 Memo

“Under international law, therefore, the United States thus is bound only by the text of the Torture Conventions as modified by the first Bush administration’s understanding.”

US soldiers in Cuba before Guantanamo

Life magazine cover showing US marines waterboardingWould you believe this is an issue of Life Magazine dated May 22, 1902? That’s water boarding! How is it that US military spokesmen now pretend our forces learned waterboarding from Korean prisons?
 
The cartoon on its cover depicts US marines waterboarding a captive in their effort to pacify the Cubans they’d just “liberated” from the Spanish. Watching in the background are the traditional western colonizers, often criticized by us for the brutality with which they repressed their foreign territories.

Between them, the Prussian tells the Brit:

“THOSE PIOUS YANKEES CAN’T THROW STONES AT US ANY MORE.”

Cartoons of US soldiers waterboarding a Cuban rebelThere it is in closeup. The arms bound at the elbows, the hands pinned, pressure applied to the stomach, a gun held to the poor Cuban’s head, a funnel put into his mouth, and water poured from a bucket marked “U.S. ARMY.”

Could Bush have bettered Obama?

Barack W. ObamaDavid Swanson describes for Tomdispatch what a GW Bush third term would have looked like. He paints a horror story continuation of all the policies which drove voters in 2008 to elect anybody but Bush. But did we? ABB Obama is proving to be quite the reliable steward of Bush’s policies of war, torture, rendition, and mercenaries, minus the public outcry. It’s change we can’t quite put our finger on.

There is no License to Kill

“Licensed to Kill” was an Ian Fleming invention. His friend Richard Meinertzhagen dropped Fleming’s phrase for guests to infer he was a secret agent. RM’s routine of arriving at diner parties with a smoking gun reinforced whispers that he had been the inspiration for James Bond. Meinertzhagen turned out to be a flake, but the authority to play god is still coveted by espionage idolators. Federal statutes prohibit identifying covert CIA operatives, regardless what they’ve done. Is that the same thing? A mythical supra legem indemnity? Sorry Virginia, nemo est.

Okay, some today are above the law, notable examples being Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Woo, et al. The jury is still out on who will atone for the Bush Co crimes. But should the Neocon exemption cover assassination squads and torturers too?

The US Department of Justice is up in arms -Fox News probably more than anybody- having learned that defense lawyers for terrorist suspects in US custody, have shown their clients photographs of CIA and private contractor interrogators, to learn which of them might have engaged in harsh techniques defined by the rest of the world as torture.

The John Adams Project, run jointly by the ACLU and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, is an effort to document the US torture in Guantanamo and our secret prisons around the globe. The ACLU assures all indignant patriots that asking the detainees to identify their torturers is completely legal.

Researchers for the project have been snapping pictures outside the homes of retired and active, CIA and intelligence industry interrogators. No names have been released except Deuce Martinez, who’d already been outed by the NYT. Martinez was the agent responsible for interrogating Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, although accounts soft-pedal his participation in the harsher techniques.

That’s the pattern of exposes about torture, those named always claim to have left the room. A remarkably similar motif accompanied the account of CIA interrogator John Kiriakou.

Two well-known names were doctors who attended to the tortured, later opening a consulting firm to train CIA interrogators.
Dr. Jim Mitchell and Dr. Bruce Jessen specialized in maximizing harsh interrogation, and making sure the victim didn’t die.

The defense lawyers have circulated the photographs of 60 suspected perpetrators, but have named only Martinez so far. How are torturers and murderers to be brought to justice, if they are not unmasked?

Why be bothered by horrors of detainees

Con Son Prison Vietnam 1951President 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.

Journalist Seymour Hersh has seen the additional photographs. He’s even recounted the videos of young Iraqi boy detainees being raped by their captors. Hersh described that the most haunting aspect were the boys’ screams. Barack Obama doesn’t want the American conscience haunted by any such brutalities.

US gov finally murders ‘ghost detainee’ (POW) tortured by CIA for 7 1/2 years

al Fakhiri, Ali Mohamed Abdul Aziz al ZaraniLibya reports prison suicide of top Qaeda man this week. Translated form CIA Arabic speak, that means he was murdered. Sure… so much has changed with Obama in office! I’m being facetious here. This man was murdered simply because he knew too much about how the Bush Administration tortured POWs in order to try to get them to fabricate ‘evidence’ about a Saddam Hussein-al Qaeda connection to justify their illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq.

A hit by the Libyans for Barack to help put a lid on this scandal? Well you speculate some… (Oh, Tony! Barack is not like that at all!) Sure he is. Certainly the government he heads is! I don’t doubt it for a second.

This reminds me of the President of Guatemala who has been just accused by an assassinated dead man of having murdered him. Luckily, unlike this victim of the CIA and Obama, he taped his accusation on youtube and it begins…

‘if you are hearing this, then I am already dead.’ And he is! See the video The Unspeakable Murder of Rodrigo Rosenberg (English subtitles) and the second part The Unspeakable Murder of Rodrigo Rosenberg Marzano (English sub.) part 2/2

A side note to this report about the CIA murder of this tortured American-held POW, is the last words this man made to Human Rights Watch which were…

“Where were you when I was being tortured in American prisons?”

Good question, Fakhiri. I went to the Human Rights Watch website again and it is amazing how this group never sees wars of aggression as being human rights violations. There’s nothing about US occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan there! Seems to simply have escaped their interest or concern! They, at best, have been like a gnat to the US government at times, but in the meantime, they usually are absolutely MIA. Fakhiri’s murder case is case in point.

Barack Obama reverses to better cover up torture so that he can continue his pogrom in Northern Pakistan

obama-white-house.jpg Now you see them, now you don’t! The Magician, Mr CHANGE, is playing the American liberal public as a motley gang of rubes and is getting away with it. All is silent on the liberal front. So that is why the Obama U-turn on abuse photographs can happen as liberals sit by with thumbs up their rear ends as their president escalates GWOT (the so-called global war on terrorism) into Pakistan. He has now put up to 1,500,000 people out of their homes and on the road to nowhere.

Barack Obama is a BOMB guided by Democratic Party politician hack drones like Biden, Pelosi, and Hillary and meanwhile the pogrom will fly overhead against the Pashtuns. All an economic stimulus to the war industries. Barack has started an American called pogrom against the Pashtun people.

Sean Hannity & the Global War OF Terror

The quicker we get Sean Hannity waterboarded the better. But we can hope for better than merely shutting him up about whether or not waterboarding is torture. Let’s figure out WHAT we can waterboard him for!

Is there a secret we want to extract from Sean Hannity? Or is there just something he’s done for which America could feel comfort in exacting redress? Wouldn’t that be the real point of torture? And actually, not to draw Hannity’s blood, but to extrude the shit from his colleagues looking on, who might fancy themselves next, O’Reilly, Limbaugh, et al.

I understand Hannity already has a volunteer to administer the procedure, what we really need is the person to direct it. To issue the thumbs up or thumbs down, irrationally, to heighten the torment.

Hannity has volunteered to subject himself to what he considers no more than fraternity hazing. Olberman has offered $1,000 for ever second Hannity lasts. Which I predict will be calculated in fragments of the first second. A subject of waterboarding can hold his breath, but the torturers will start the clock by forcefully expelling that reserve. Waterboarding begins when the victim gasps for air, and inhales water instead.

The media debate around waterboarding asks two questions. Is waterboarding torture? And does torture work? Both questions are flawed. The first is simply an insult, the second is misdirected.

Perhaps the average American is disconnect enough from reality to question whether the unimaginable can be. If you’ve never stepped into the sea, you can speculate that water is not really wet. Fast-food eating television viewers can wonder, does the stove burn?

Does torture work? Of course it does. To wonder if torture is an effective method of interrogation is to get the question entirely wrong.

In one debate about the efficacy of torture, the FBI claims the with one terror suspect they were making gains with psychological methods until the CIA seized custody in order to give the waterboard a try. Apparently with no success, after which the FBI had another promising run interrupted by another CIA inter-department rendition. Sound like the ol’ good agency, bad agency interrogation ploy to you?

Ignored in the torture efficacy assessment is the absence of a control sample. Did the subject have anything to reveal? How unfair to judge an interrogator if his subject doen’t have a secret to crack. And even that misses the point. What is the purpose of torture? Is it to extract information, such as learning of ticking time-bombs to save innocent lives, or is it about preemptive subjugation of people?

To torture someone is to terrorize them with their own helplessness under the thumb of brutal inhumanity. Torture is directed less against the terrorized subject themselves, than the public looking on. Torture is terror. It get the predicate reversed in the phrase “Global War On Terror.” Terror is the subject not the object; actually the objective. It’s the Global War OF Terror. In our GWOT, torture is an important weapon in the US arsonal, and of course it works. Against brave people, it “works” solely to provoke them.

Christian Crusades for committing torture, prayer & murder in Afghanistan

The Evangelicals love the authoritarian structures of the US military! It’s seen as a command structure coming down almost directly from the authority of Jesus Christ himself. Never mind the torture on the ground at Bagram Air Base nor the bombing and murder of innocents from up on high. There is a soft side of Jesus, too, if you just buy it? Or, at least that seems to be the message? Now let us bow our heads in prayer and check out this video of Military Evangelism at work…
04 MAY 09- US troops urged to share faith in Afghanistan

Obama stuck with his finger locked in the damnation

obama fingerIt’s kind of sad reading the liberal ‘Peace’crat sites as they scream and shout about why the Democratic Party must prosecute The Republicans for the crimes of implementing torture. That can’t happen though, and there is one BIG reason why not? Can you guess why it won’t and can’t be done?

The Democrats didn’t get tricked by the Republicans at the beginning of open overt US government use of torture on prisoners, but rather were their accomplices in initiating it. There is no way in the world now that they can rush to investigate and prosecute torture use by Republican Party officials. When Bush began to use overt torture of POWs he told the Congressional Democratic Party leaders of his plan and got their OK for it. It then became an open ‘secret’ among themselves what they agreed to allow and went along with.

So why all this ‘innocence’ about this among the rank and file Democratic liberal voter set? Their leaders might have misrepresented their own desires for allowing this torture to happen, but only a tiny minority of Democratic Party voters perhaps? Support for using torture remains strong within the general US public, and that includes Democratic Party voting circles. Obama has had to deal with this Pandora’ Box because of outside (of America) pressures more than inside pressures. He’s ready to move ‘forward’ once again, and in today’s lexicon of the Demo Party bigwigs, forward means backward.

Can Obama pull his finger back out of the damnation and pretend to America and the world that it never happened? No. He is simply stuck, finger in the damn, and condemnation will continue to try to flow forth. He could go under like New Orleans did under Katrina, especially since he has his finger stuck in yet another damn, that one called the Economy.

The truth comes out about how actually the US government tortured its POWs

Sept. 11 planner waterboarded 183 times: report, but this is a little bit different than the US government officials’ lies about how they used torture on Pentagon held POWs, is it not?

We ask, because the apologists for US government torture use have always tried to paint a picture of themselves using only supposedly limited and necessary tortures, needed and used only to protect the larger US common society from baddies. In such, they have mimicked the Israeli government’s murderous actions against Palestinians, too, where all the Israeli government abuse is qualified as being merely a restrained and rational program of protection for endangered Jewish people. But the truth actually in both cases is that both the Israeli and US governments are engaging in their own form of terrorism against people they have tried to deligitimize as supposedly not being subject to international laws of humanity and human decency.

teaching hospitalAmerican ‘medical science’ is something special! Can you imagine Attila the Hun or Napoleon Bonaparte or even Adolph Hitler with these scientific minded docs that The American Empire has?

‘Doctor, is it OK if I flood this man’s nose with water for 1.2 seconds more? How about 0.6 seconds more?’

And even the opposition to this scientifically directed violence seems compelled to respond with more ‘science’ of its own. See The Weapons That Kill Civilians — Deaths of Children and Noncombatants in Iraq, 2003–2008, a study done by The New England Journal of Bloodshed Analysis.

Red, White, and Blue cowardice- These colors do run!

American flagFor years now, the majority of Americans have allowed their country’s leaders to murder, torture, and lie in their name, with hardly a protest against it. They allowed their Constitution to be defiled by remaining silent as their government held innocents in solitary confinement without charges and tortured them for years, all the while many of them obtusely said that no torture was involved at all as for as they were concerned.

These lies and this complicity, by politicians of both parties, with US Federal government torture and mayhem now lie open and exposed, but does the common American want to correct and apologize for their support of crimes against humanity? Do all these ‘little Eichmanns’ feel any guilt and wish to atone for it now that it has been thoroughly exposed? Read 75% Oppose Release of Guantanamo Inmates in the United States and you decide.

And remember… these are our flag-waving dumb-cluck neighbors here. Instead of facing their acts done with flag in hand, they run! That’s our society’s Red, White, and Blue cowardice on display to the world once again! This poll shows that Americans are a nation of bullies and cowards.
