Memorial Day Weekend...

This memorial day I am filled with a lot of feelings.

It's been blasted all over the web and TV, about the torture that was performed in Gitmo. Water boarding is cruel and unusual punishment that we don't even put our own criminals through. I mean if anyone deserved this wouldn't it be Drew Peterson.

But we don't do such things, because they are cruel tactics.

We will however do it to people that will never be convicted of any crime though. In the last 4 years we have made 3 convictions from Gitmo. That's it 3.

I know that we can't bring to trial somebody from a different country with our laws to determine their guilt... but there should be some kind of trial for these people. Even if they are terrorists. That means that they have won. We have lowered our standards to torture these people.

We as a country have failed.

These are War Crimes.... if not, I'd sure like to know what is.

We should persecute everyone involved. So what if you were the bottom staff that was just following orders... you knew it was wrong.

Hmmmm Job vs Humanity.... I know some people would still pick Job and that sickens me.

I will think of all the people who have given there lives in this and every war. That have fought for my freedom.

I will think of all the people who have died for something that they believe in so I can shout from a mountain that I am a Pagan.

All the people who have helped in making the US.

But I think that we have some explaining to do to the world. Not everyone. Just the ones responsible for this torture.
