“The torture of a bad conscience is the hell of a living soul.” —John Calvin
Of course that doesn’t apply to the Bush administration...it has no conscience for all it’s sanctimony and certainly no soul or morality. It is now legal to torture human beings if President Bush says it is. We have become about as low as any other pompous, fearful society when it comes to the treatment of our fellow human beings.
I hear Rush wailing that these people are not citizens and that therefore they don't deserve the same protection as we do under the Geneva Conventions. To that I say, ”Bullshit!” As Americans, don't we need to maintain a higher moral standard? If we descend to their level, doesn’t that make us as bad if not worse than them? I find that killing people, without regard to their guilt or innocense, before they might kill you to be madness. It is morally bankrupt. And pure bomber pilot mentality. If you don't see it, you can pretend it never happened.
Might does make right. I just hope we never lose. I can tell you the administration is looking after itself. They just better not travel to the Hague anytime soon.
