15. Thanks, Will!
What gripes the hell out of me is that the American public is not livid at this. We should be ripping down the White House stone by stone in anger at this inhuman spectacle.

Mercenaries. They're not called "the dogs of war" for nothing. And they are overpaid by OUR tax dollars; these acts of barbarity are done in our names, with our implicit consent, while we go about our mundane, middle class lives oblivious to it all, the screams of our victims muffled in the distance.

There is no hole deep enough to bury this steaming pile, no detergent strong enough to scrub this stain from our collective conscience.

My friends in other countries have always been slow to blame the people of the USA for the crimes of Bushco, but I believe that attitude is beginning to change, and with good reason. We have lost the capacity for outrage.
