Nasty Letters To Crooked Politicians

As we enter a new era of politics, we hope to see that Obama has the courage to fight the policies that Progressives hate. Will he have the fortitude to turn the economic future of America to help the working man? Or will he turn out to be just a pawn of big money, as he seems to be right now.

Covering Iraq: Triumph of the Beast

Covering Iraq: Triumph of the Beast:

Triumph of the Beast

The torture of Iraqi detainees by US military forces is undeniable. We now know the Bush administration condoned torture even before Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom was launched upon Afghanistan and Iraq, in this post-9/11 hysteria of terrorist infiltration on American soil.

Congressman Marty Meehan (D-MA), a ranking member of the House Armed Services Committee, was horrified after he viewed Abu Ghraib prison photos released by the Department of Defense. Meehan remarked emerging from the darkened committee room, “I was obviously shocked and horrified to discover that the new photos were even more gruesome than those we have seen in the media. What went on there is indefensible and inexcusable.”

During a recent trip to Panama, President Bush pontificated that Americans “do not torture”—his deployment of executive authority to keep Congress from imposing rules on prisoner treatment notwithstanding. With the implementation of the Patriot Act of 2001, President Bush was given express power to declare anyone suspected of having a connection to terrorists or terrorism an “enemy combatant” and thereby suspend his right to habeas corpus. The Senate diligently voted to cast innocent people into pain and darkness without recourse or rights. American citizens declared “enemy combatants”should not be denied the constitution; but a formable squawk about rights and habeas corpus forced a compromise of allowing a post-conviction appeal – for people who had been arbitrarily seized and held in isolation for years without charges, which had been tortured, humiliated and driven to madness, some committing suicide before facing a kangaroo court. Such was the deal cobbled together for Bush to present as a triumph of human spirit and the American way."


My response:
Your article cracks the nut at its heart. I hope we can all live to see the trial and execution of George W. Bush and his entire murderous cabal...Cheney, Rice, Powell, Rumsfeld, Feith, Libby, Gonzales, Sanchez, Kimmet, Wolfowitz and Pearle, et al.

Let the night resound with the hammers of the gallows makers after their trial! Let us watch the hoods be dropped over every one of their heinous countenances and the hangman's noose pulled tight around their necks.

Let the cheering of the world echo far and wide as the hatch falls and they drop en masse into the black void from where the plan was hatched--the Beast released.

Only then will the Beast be satiated. Only then will the peace of the ages come to rest once again on our hallowed shores.
