1. This is probably one of the main issues that got me so involved in politics, when the Bush

War Criminals opened Guantanamo Bay and we saw the first pictures of the planes with those detainees in orange suits and chains. It was sickening and I had a bad feeling that was only the beginning of their nightmare journey. As it turned out it was.

Dick Cheney is an evil man. But until this country comes to terms with the fact that they either start prosecuting war criminals, or the stature of this country, already diminished by what has been done already, will continue to diminish.

To think we could have influenced the whole world to make this world a better place. We had the power. Instead, the country took a turn towards the darkest side and refuses to make amends even to those who wrongfully detained and tortured.

I am glad people are not keeping quiet about this most horrible, evil practice that should belong to the dark ages, but we, the supposed 'shining city on the hill' have made acceptable.

If this country prosecuted its war criminals, the polls would be very different.

Thanks for the link Solly Mack.
