red cross: looking out for the oppressed

from the ap:

the red cross visited saddam hussein, ex-dictator and genocidal maniac, in u.s. custody today.

the us has been holding saddam on a secret desert base in kuwait, where the former butcher of baghdad is kept permanently outside, hanging by his pinky toes. there is a long line of iraqis bussed in blindfolded who take turns hitting their ousted oppressor with sticks, whips, and anything else they can get their hands on.

mohammed m. mohammed, whose entire family was killed by saddam's son uday, spit on saddam and said "this is too good for him, he deserves much worse. the u.s. and george bush, allah bless him, are too kind."

the red cross representatives were appalled and outraged at the treatment of the prisoner, until a u.s. marine went around slapping them all on the head, bringing them back to reality and reminding them who they were looking at. they then took turns hitting him with a lead pipe.

okay, okay, that isn't what it said. but that's what it should say, in a sane world.


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
