http://thememoryhole.org/war/iraqis_tortured/Because I don't have the strength to post any of these pictures on my journal, I'll give you the link to witness them for yourselves: |
This country is run by sick bastards; a blind person needs no more proof than this.
We are the people of the defense mechanisms, how much more can we rationalize, how much more can we justify what is irrefutably evil? Is it not sick that our response to these images is an attempt to explain their existence? Repression is not acceptable at this rate. We are in love with comparable suffering, with convincing ourselves of our innocence by pointing fingers at other countries' atrocities. There are a million explanations, a million reaons, a million regrets. It seems that every morning I wake up, this country is becoming a new kind of Holocaust.
We are driven by fear and thanks to the government, we have new reasons to be afraid. Anti-Americanism is at an all time climax, and it has no intention of decreasing.
My resentment towards this country, towards this administration is visceral, instinctual, and raw. The only path to liberation is the path of the self, the path of the people. I do not seek comfort in Kerry or any other politician- politicans, by nature, are almost impossible to trust. My struggle to be a free spirit, just got a little harder.
La lucha SIGUE!
