Bush exacting his righteous wrath on Abu Ghraib. The buck stops there.
Edited on Tue May-25-04 08:45 PM by TruthIsAll
Bush has finally done the right thing. He is moving against all the components of the one entity most responsible for the abuse and torture of Iraqi prisoners. He is executing Abu Ghraib.

It's the ultimate penalty for the walls which dared surround the bunched up victims and caused the massive wounds of those who bashed their heads against.

And the floors. Those dastardly floors which held the bodies mounted in grotesque piles, while those at the bottom suffocated from breathing the sweating orifices in their faces. Any DNA which caused the Berg beheading will never see the light of microscopic day.

And the windows which let in a smidgen of light to remind the prisoners that they would never again dance in the sunshine after the sexual humiliations they went through will be demolished as well. Good riddance..

And what about the enclosed cells? Those miserable pieces of iron which had the audacity to keep the prisoners locked in to their humiliation night after night. Those damned cell blocks should be removed forever from this earth.

And don't forget the latrines. A sad reminder to those who were smeared with their own feces. These latrines were just teasing the prisoners who believed that at least their shit would flow down those toilet pipes.

What about the cameras? They, too, will be destroyed. They were the ultimate villains, those high tech monsters which recorded all the misery. Begone, eyes of evil.

And the stools. The ones that they were forced to stand on while their hands and penises were attached to electrical wiring should they fall off. Those foot stools were the cause of monumental fright.

Finally, the dogs. Attacking the prisoners and taking chunks out of their bodies. We should show those dogs no mercy.

Bush will force all these objects to realize the consequence of their existence. The buck stops right there. In the prison. Those objects of death will never again cause the horrors we have witnessed.

Abu Ghraib will be removed from this earth forever. Halliburton and Carlyle will gladly perform the funeral.

1. Y'know the saying
that if the only tool you have is a hammer every problem looks like a nail? You gotta admire the thought process. Torture Scandal? Blow up a building. Mission Accomplished!

2. Destruction of evidence?
Perhaps tearing down the facility is to keep the forensic evidence it contains out of the hands of international war crimes tribunals?

4. Tear down those walls! Hell Yes...get rid of all the DNA
that will show the presence of many that are no where to be found or of those who were never there.

5. Hey, I'm all for it so long as
they destroy that damn evil white chair!

Actually, this is the proper use for such a place:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuol_Sleng_Museum
http://www.robben-island.org.za /

Destroying it may be a choice the Iraqis choose some day. If the criminal enterprise now controlling the US gov't destroy it, then they are either the most stupid or the most venal gang ever to seize such power -- well, both, more likely.
