I Hate The World 

Because I'm pressed for time, I'll let Digby do the hard work of framing a suitable post for these atrocities, and simply note that this is nothing new. Anyone with an eye on the foreign press and the NGO websites could have told you as much ages ago. The most damning part of it all is that while we support (from the top down, mind you) a honeycomb of systemic torture chambers and kidnapping and transport to torture chambers, we continue to delude ourselves that we are not only good, we are chosen of God. We have a president who agonizes over the destruction of a muticellular organism with no more potential for life than the cells on the back of your hand, despite the promise of miracles they hold for the suffering, yet defends, protects and encourages the sadistic torment and murder of living human beings. And here in this mighty nation we have apologists for this outrage that find no fault, because they believe that "war is hell", and those on the receiving end are just getting what they deserve.

Gandalf said: “Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.” But no one could accuse those in the seats of power here or elsewhere of being overburdened by wisdom. And that goes double for the people who put them there in the first place.
