Stress of ages

Essential reading. The kind of torture Bush and his criminal gang have endorsed in their war on Muslims has a history.

What might strike you, and it struck me, was that the interrogation techniques described in Sullivan's piece are not as bad as those used in Abu Ghraibh and other places. The description of "stress positions" is very contemporary though.


There will not be a trial for our war crimes though. Trials are what the winners make the losers go through. We did not try Churchill for Dresden, after all. But many of those involved are Christians, with a faith in a vengeful god. They'd better hope they have that wrong.
