Letter to the Editor

The torture of prisoners in Iraq is not entirely surprising. The Bush administration has been actively advocating the use of torture ever since 9-11. Many statements have been made floating the idea that torture might be used is special circumstances. Prisoners were given new classifications other that Prisoner of War in order to avoid the restrictions of international law. These prisoners were deliberately reclassified into a legally murky area where no rules exists for one and one reason only – so that they could break the rules.

The abuse of prisoners in Iraq was not the acts of a few individuals. It was in fact the real policy of the military and those soldiers were operating on orders from the top.

What the President creates lawless and encourages it and advocates breaking of the rules then it comes as no surprise when the rules are broken. Bush is responsible for the torture of prisoners in Iraq because he is the one who has made it known that the rule of international law does not apply to what America does. I therefore call on the entire Bush administration to take responsibility and step down from power. This is the kind of thing that happens when America allows a president to take power who was never elected in the first place.

SIDE NOTE:

I found yet another site that has the movie of the execution of 3000 Afgan POWs. Apparently the 17 minute movie I send you a link to was edited dowm. This link has a version with more details and is 59 minutes long. It is also in Real format instead of Quicktime.

The video is a Candaian Broadcasting Corporation documentary detailing the execution of 3000 prisoners by suffocation and the survivors shot and buried in mass graves. It’s far bigger that the Iraqi story.

If the terrorists have their way and an American city goes up in atomic flame, then whatever abuses that have happened so far will look like child’s play. Some of you conspiracy theory idiots need to stop your hysterical nonsense and start thinking about what this war ultimately means to your own worthless hide.
