I'm Sick of This Shit

and I don't know what else to do so I'll start a blog.

By "this shit" I mean:
the CIA and the US military torturing prisoners. This is a warcrime and it is fucking outrageous the Bush regime is getting away with it.

Then there is "this shit":
Getting Their Wives. You may have heard of the tactic. As a way to leverage information or capture an enemy, terrorists sometimes kidnap innocent women and children in order to put pressure on their husbands or relatives. It's called kidnapping and blackmail. Except that in Rumsfeld's military, the United States now uses the tactic. Sure, it's against the Geneva Conventions. Sure, those Conventions are supposed to apply in Iraq. But this is the Bush administration. King George doesn't have to obey the law; and his military can do anything they want. The Pentagon has gotten used to denying hard evidence of abuse - and no one, of course, has been disciplined for following the instructions given ultimately in Washington. "It's very hard, obviously, from some of these documents to determine what, if anything, actually happened," says the Pentagon spokesman. No, it isn't. And so we slowly descend toward the level of the enemy. Because King George can.

Then there is this mind-blowing outrage:
Details of Sexual Perversion At Detention Centers More Serious Than Media Reports; Pentagon In Possession Of Videos Of Boys Being Sodomized And Detainee Statement Verifies This Fact.

Although lower level military are taking the rap for Abu Ghraib abuse, critics contend Rumsfeld authorized the rape of Iraqi children.

Although the U.S. government is in possession of video tapes of boys being sodomized at Abu Ghraib and other detention centers, the evidence and public clamor to end the torture and killing has done little to change the mindset of the Bush administration.

Lawyers for President Bush, including U.S. Attorney Gen. Alberto Gonzales, have tried to neatly package and justify skirting international law regarding the illegal detention of prisoners.

This blog will try to keep up to date track of Bush regime war crime stories.

The blog's name may be a little awkward, but it is accurate.

were already taken.
