Some prisoners from Guantanamo are now to go on trial and the Americans are calling for the death penalty if they are found guilty.
There's a slight problem here which so called western democracies Britain included might have spotted.
That problem is,well, it's difficult to describe in a nice way because America (home of the brave and land of the free) has imprisoned and tortured these prisoners for 6 years without a trial. Quite a big omission when you are seeking justice and, telling the world that you stand for freedom, justice, and democracy eh ?
It's worth recalling how some of these people got there. Pakistani street criminals and gangsters were kidnapped, tortured and made to confess to being members of Al Qaeda they were then sold on to America at $5,000 a time and, he presto ! America were catching the bad guys. The Pakistan authorities were never convicted of collusion over this, right ?
I will be dead and long gone before America can hold it's head up in the world and I think there will be a lot more of this kind of sickening American behaviour to come.
Gordon Brown would do well to remember that 'if you lie down with dogs you wake up with flees'
Bush & co. get nostalgic for the 'good ole days when you could jest lynch em' without all this fuss.
