Human Dignity: A Casualty of War

Matt Southworth, Friends Committee on National Legislation: ''As a bright-eyed nineteen-year-old soldier in Iraq in 2004, I was faced with a crisis of conscience. I thought I was going to Iraq to help free Iraqis, but instead I was a part of a mission to put them in a different kind of prison.''

Handmaidens to Barbarity

Chris Hedges, Truthdig: ''It was science, industry and technology that made possible the 20th century s industrial killing. These forces magnified innate human barbarity. They served the immoral. And there are numerous scientists who continue to work in labs across the country on weapons systems that have the capacity to exterminate millions of human beings.''

Gore Vidal and the upside of American military prisons

CounterPunch
by Chip Gibbons

08/12/12

Only the late Gore Vidal, who the American media was almost universal in describing as iconoclastic in his obituaries, could find an upside to the torture of prisoners by American soldiers. And only Vidal could find an upside that would be at the same time deeply witty, cynical, sensationalistic, and completely factual. I say completely factual because the torture and brutality that shocked the world in American military prisons from Guantanamo bay to Bagram to Abu Ghraib closely parallels and mirrors the United States s own domestic treatment of prisoners...

By Charles Davis

Love of Country

By Fred Reed

Mostly my country seems to be a bunch of brigands in Washington who send you tax forms to get money so they can kill people in some place that never did anything to you and you probably don t know where is.
