The American Dream

The UN report says detainees' bodies often show signs of beating using electrical cables, wounds in heads and genitals, broken legs and hands, electric and cigarette burns. Bodies found at the Baghdad mortuary "often bear signs of severe torture including acid-induced injuries and burns caused by chemical substances". Many bodies have missing skin, broken bones, back, hands and legs, missing eyes, missing teeth and wounds caused by power drills or nails, the UN report says. Victims come from prisons run by US-led multinational forces as well as by the ministries of interior and defence and private militias, the report said.

Thus begins the sad epilogue to Bush's war on Saddam's evil dictatorship. The latest UN Torture report regarding the conditions in Iraq shows that torture conditions now are much worse than those that existed under Saddam's regime. The Duh!mericans first came to Iraq with a promise. They wanted to free the land from tyranny, confiscate any WMDs and leave it as a thriving democracy.

Today. While Saddam Hussein stands in the dock on trial for mass murder G.W.'s men still roam the area that was once the cradle of civilisation. Their heritage will not be an educational one. They came with their dream and will fly back with it. They did not bring hope but desperation. They did not relieve but caused more suffering.

It would seem that the American dream is exclusive to citizens of the land of stars and stripes. Do you know why the rest of the world does not have a dream of its own? Because it is awake. It cannot afford to sleep while this kind of atrocities are committed.
