AaameriKKKa Does Indeed Torture


Stop Lying, AmeriKKKa Does Torture

“We do not torture.”- George W Bu$h

In recent months AmeriKKKans have had to endure the pathetic spectacle of George W. Bu$h attempting to persuade the public torture and abuse aren’t the official policy of the United States government towards enemy combatants and those being detained in the myriad gulags around the world; as well as defend the indefensible, his invasion and occupation of Iraq. Poor Dubeyah, the stress of having to lie so much must really be getting to him. Back in November during a visit to Panama Bu$h responded to a question during a brief press appearance with Panamanian president Martin Torrijo by feebly attempting to sway people with a terse statement, “We do not torture.” By now no one believes poor little George. He is like the lad in the story about the boy how cried wolf and Pinochio; he has lost all credibility even if per chance he ever utters the truth no one will believe him! His low credibility is reflected in his abysmal approval ratings. The latest Zogby poll indicates Bu$h’s ratings are in the 30's. That means almost seventy per cent of the people disapprove of the job he is doing! Not even members of Congress or Senate believe him. Yesterday the US House of Representatives voted 308 to 122 to support wording to prevent dehumanizing degrading and cruel treatment. In today’s Washington Post, one of the preeminent cheerleaders for the NeoConmen’s agenda there is a story on the House vote. “The House gave strong support yesterday to a measure that would ban torture and limit interrogation tactics in U.S. detention facilities, agreeing with senators that Congress needs to set uniform guidelines for the treatment of prisoners in the war on terrorism. On a 308 to 122 vote, members of the House supported specific language proposed by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) that would prohibit "cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment" of anyone in the custody of the U.S. government. Though lopsided, the vote was largely symbolic and does not put the language into law. The vote specifically instructed House negotiators to include McCain's language, word for word, in the fiscal 2006 defense appropriations bill, a decision that is not binding but carries significant political weight. The House also supported a McCain provision that would require officials in any Defense Department detention facility to follow the interrogation standards in the Army's field manual on interrogations. That manual is currently being revised. The vote sends a clear signal to the Bush administration that both chambers of Congress support the anti-torture legislation and want the government to adopt guidelines that aim to prevent damage to the U.S. image abroad. The White House has been aggressively pushing to create exceptions for CIA operatives and to water down McCain's language to keep it from limiting interrogators' options. But it appears that the administration and House Republican leaders lost some leverage yesterday. With the Senate's 90 to 9 vote in support of McCain's language earlier this year, both houses have presented veto-proof tallies to a White House that has vowed to strike down any bill that would limit the president's authority to wage the war on terrorism.” Obviously even the Post could not suppress the reality of what takes place on the floor of the US Congress.

One of the reasons Bu$h’s ratings are sooo low is because of the widespread exposure and exhibition of the horrific and degrading pictures of Abu Ghraib clearly showing AmeriKKKan soldiers and contractors abusing, belittling and degrading Iraqi prisoners. A picture is worth a thousand denials even when the denials are repeated twenty-four seven by the corporate mind control apparatus as part of the psychological warfare against Joe and Jane Sixpack. The fact there are cases in court trying to get more photos released is a clear indication even to the knuckle dragging Bible thumping dunderheads who think AmeriKKKa is on moral high ground with its occupation of Iraq and the War on Terrorism AmeriKKKa does inded torture. Were/are any Africans in AmeriKKKa shocked or surprised at the Abu Ghraib pictures? If so I suggest you visit www.withoutsanctuary.org and peruse the gruesome photos of lynching of black people during the twentieth century. AmeriKKKa tortures people every day! It is a form of torture to deliberately destroy people’s mind (menticide) through psychological warfare, disinformation and false advertisements. It is certainly torture to turn a blind eye and deaf ear to the suffering of the least of us. It is cruel and inhumane treatment for the government to give the super rich and corporations tax breaks while shredding the social safety nets of the working class, elderly, children and the poor! It is torture to drop white phosphoreus and napalm on innocent men, women and children like the US did in Fallujah! Here again the US denies doing that despite filmed evidence by an Italian television documentary indicating otherwise. George W Bu$h, the corporate media and the NeoConartists have lost all credibility. Nevertheless they keep trying or I should say lying. They’re like the guy in the old joke who was discovered in a compromising predicament who says, “who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes?’
