the rule of lawlessness
happy halloween. scary times indeed. omar khadr killed an american soldier on a battlefield where neither of them should have been. that's what he says -- under torture and otherwise. if that's true, then that's war -- it's a crime. and bush and blair and obama (not to mention cheerleaders -- and very likely much worse -- harper, mckay, ignatieff and co.), the crime bosses: when do they face arrest and trial? the hypocrisy is breathtaking, a new normal for the natoland torture state consensus. same as it's been all the empire long. but can any system withstand such delusional disconnection from reality, such complete moral rot? i think not. the future is medieval -- if we're lucky, that is.
