Anyone who refuses to prosecute somebody who tortured innocent people is sick, IMHO. WARNING GRAPHIC

The recent Cleveland house of horrors story has just brought this up for me again.... the fact that innocent people were tortured in the Bush years and nothing is being done about...




After years of disclosures by government investigations, media accounts, and reports from human rights organizations, there is no longer any doubt as to whether the current administration has committed war crimes. The only question is whether those who ordered the use of torture will be held to account.

óMaj. General Antonio M. Taguba (USA-Ret.), preface to Broken Laws, Broken Lives




"I call on all governments to join with the United States and the community of law-abiding nations in prohibiting, investigating, and prosecuting all acts of torture..."

2. The sick minds of torture

It seems natural if someone is tied up and tortured that they will eventually say or do anything to stop the pain, anguish to prevent the loss of oneís current mental state to reasoning, that undoubtedly is counter to the torturer. To torture is a means to only one answer, the one wanted.

Also, all Americans are being in a condemned situation, as those not held responsible for this confinement culture in living terror will eventually give retaliation, political, educational, or economical. Thatís why some of us are who we are. A weird thing to say but thatís the way it is as Mr. Walter Cronkite once said. Many will finally admit it is the media that brought America to this point in time, and the media culture is loaded with treachery. Especially cable and propagated hate radio.

Americans can release themselves anonymously without fear writing things on the internet to help progress the truth. For I have known that through my working career, bias, hatred, likeness, goodness, gaming, and personal vindictiveness or personality wars happens at the work place, best of all the mission statement, all the time for decades in this so called American free market place governed by biased breaking news after the commercialism. Stay tuned.

If those commercials are taxes America would have enough in the treasury to afford living compensation through Social Security. Ladies and Gentlemen of America, today anyone who can survive this present social structure without being thrown in jail qualifies for a full Social Security living wage compensation. The reasoning is simple the Stock market is rigged.
