Someone had mentioned recently to me that the US has been implying that they will be using torture on Saddam… Along those lines I wanted to link this story about torture of prisoners held in New York by America… You know, it's easy to say “oh, but that was just the guards; it wasn't sanctioned” but when the prison tries to cover it up, the general public isn't particularly outraged, I don't see how one can see that “we” (the collective West) are somehow “better” than the nations we regularly decry for their almost identical violations of human rights.

What, you think it's somehow worse to torture someone because you think they were involved with blasphemy than it is to torture someone and then gleefully mop up their blood with an American flag t-shirt emblazoned with “these colors don't run” because you think someone with the same color of skin as they have attacked you?

…and that's just the prison inside US borders. What happens outside?

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
