To a fascist America:-http://www.guardian.co.uk/usa/story/0,,2064157,00.htmlFrom an American, who points out that 'Democracy' is difficult to establish, but not so difficult to destroy. Bush, Rove and their minions are doing their level best to destroy the U.S.I quote:-"Americans still assume this system and detainee abuses involve only scary brown people with whom they don't generally identify. It was brave of the conservative pundit William Safire to quote the anti-Nazi pastor Martin Niemöller, who had been seized as a political prisoner: "First they came for the Jews." Most Americans don't understand yet that the destruction of the rule of law at Guantánamo set a dangerous precedent for them, too.By the way, the establishment of military tribunals that deny prisoners due process tends to come early on in a fascist shift. Mussolini and Stalin set up such tribunals. On April 24 1934, the Nazis, too, set up the People's Court, which also bypassed the judicial system: prisoners were held indefinitely, often in isolation, and tortured, without being charged with offences, and were subjected to show trials.And there is more. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -On another topic, Jessica Lynch isn't too happy being used as a propaganda tool:-http://www.guardian.co.uk/usa/story/0,,2064617,00.html"Initial reports also suggested that Ms Lynch had been abused after she came round in the hospital. She said the reports were lies: she had been treated well and the Iraqis had tried to return her to US forces."Strangely, I see no coverage of this story in the U.S. media.It's a sad, Big Brother world.rosco
