hmmm, treat people badly enough, and they'll tell you anything ...

and just so I got this right ... "we're" going to treat "them" badly (to put it mildly), because "we" think "they" have treated "us" badly ...

- perhaps I'm being naive, but anybody accusing the US of being hypocritical about human rights when it suits them has a bit of point. For months now, the US has been banging on about Defeating Evil, but keeping people (and yes, that's exactly what they, like it or not) in those sort of conditions is pretty close to Evil to me.

what are we seeking to protect, if this is how we behave? Surely the whole point of the "Civilisation" that was under attack, is that everyone is treated humanely, and not punished before being convicted.
