If you're expecting justice in Iraq, just look to Guantanamo for reassurance

Truth About Iraqis

June 10, 2006

For years now we have heard of the deplorable condition in which Guantanamo detainees have been held. Most have not been told why they had been at the military prison facility for five years.

In world media, those who are eventually released go on to document the physical, spiritual and psychological abuse and torture they face. The UN as well as other bodies have called on the US to shut the prison facility down. They have heaped criticism after criticism for the way the prison is run and the way the detainees are treated.

The fact that they are called non-combatants and therefore not covered by international treaties and conventions (Geneva, ICRC, etc) has been a source of serious concern for the world community.

However, US media has discared every claim they make; ridiculed evidence and testimony, torn apart as lies.

Therefore, it is not surprising that there is no outrage when we hear that three Guantanamo detainees - a Yemeni and two Saudis - committed suicide today.

Instead, we hear that the three have engaged in aggressive behavior against the United States.

Three detainees at the U.S. Navy base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, committed suicide by hanging themselves with clothing and bedsheets, U.S. defense officials said Saturday.

"They are smart. They are creative, they are committed. They have no regard for life, either ours or their own. I believe this was not an act of desperation, but an act of ...warfare waged against us," Rear Adm. Harry Harris, commander of the Joint Task Force Guantanamo, said in a telephone news conference
.

So, of course we will hear some say that the women and children of Haditha blew their own brains out.

And in Abu Ghraib, the tortured Iraqis carried out all the abuse against themselves, in what is regarded as violent action against the US.

"... they have no regard for life ..." So killing them is okay because they wanted to die anyways, right?

Wrong. This is racism. Just like we heard that the "black" man had no soul and was cursed by God. KKK theology is alive and kicking.

Aha ... yes ...

Iraqi inspiration quote FROM Mark from Ireland: "They died at the hands of the depraved dogs set loose upon the city which was their home by the modern Hulegu. Long after he, his barbaric blood-drenched empire, and all his pomps and works are no more than a memory at which men spit, Baghdad - "the city given by God" will be there, serene, triumphant, beautiful.

Iraqi inspiration quote FROM Fayrouz: I'm more interested in reading the opinions of Iraqi bloggers than reading the American bloggers analysis of the siuation. Yes, you can add me to the list of your enemies of all I'm concerned.
