Now Playing: 10 point strategy for ending abuse and torture
Topic: TORTURE


 

From the website

"Human Rights First.org"

Here we have a group that has to tell our Government how to act appropriate. From the opening paragraph of the Human Rights First web page on this topic, I give you fellow Zebra3 readers, the opening advice that I am sure the White House received as well:

This plan is intended to move beyond concern and dismay and set a positive way forward. The goal of this plan is to help the United States reclaim its role as a leading defender of fairness and liberty in the world and to make clear that abuses like those we have seen and read about can never again be done in America's name

http://www.humanrightsfirst.org/us_law/detainees/end_abuse_plan.htm

10-Point Strategy

1. Commit to upholding the laws on interrogation and detention.

2. Investigate and prosecute all acts of torture and abuse and publicly report on
all cases.

3. Ban the use of torture.

4. Rescind all orders permitting conduct that amounts to torture and abuse.

5. Compensate victims of abuse and notify their families.

6. Mandate rigorous training for interrogators and ban civilian contractors
from conducting interrogations.

7. Disclose the location of all U.S. detention facilities worldwide and account for
all detainees in custody.

8. Inspect all military detention facilities worldwide and report findings to
Congress.

9. Provide all those in custody visits by the Red Cross and due process.

10. Ban transfer of prisoners to countries that use torture.

Seems to me, if my country cant abide by these simple suggested 10 Strategy Points they don't amount to a pile of dog crap on my lawn!

Seems to me, our government and Military might start to try living by some morals and follow the 10 point strategy. Heck - get this country back on its honest & forthright legs......but we will see! We will see indeed!

I actually kind of doubt the Military will do anything unless forced to by the courts! As crazy as that seems. Yet ironically ....Even being "told to by the courts" does not mean - that - "this group of out of control torture provocateurs" will even abide by the judge rule. They are rouge and beyond law as we knew it. Uncle Sam has gone mad!

To this day The McCain Torture Bill has not been abided by or enforced or followed. And  my dear readers, its been over 8 months since bushman was on TV shaking hands and telling the world he was going to follow the anti-torture agreement! Over 8 months and NOTHING done yet........?

....Funny thing HAHAHA after he signed the Torture Bill......he added a "signage clause" to the bottom of the bill that lets him not follow the requirement of the bill or law. ( snicker*)

HAHAHA these guys are as crooked as carnies at the traveling circus! The whole process is a game of charades. Bush still permits torture ....and yet on TV lies and pretends he will stop using it.

Folks you have been bush~shitted! That why these 10 points need to be discussed.

 

WOW so let me clarify this! We nowhave to spell-out the 10 points solution - for these war mongers to follow?

Kind of odd but ...Did bushman claim he was a Christian? And he allows this torture crap to happen? hmmmm?

A young solider named Jason, said he cant shoot young children in Iraq
Mood:  sad
Now Playing: Another Soliders Sucide in a Sicking Illegal War
Topic: WAR

On his death bed,

he told his mother,

"I can't go out there and

shoot at young children.

I just can't go to Iraq.

I don't care what side they

are on... I can't do it."

Tony Chelsea, 58, a factory production supervisor, said: "My son, Jason, was made very, very lonely by what was happening to him. He was very sad inside and he bottled up what was causing it. It was only after the overdose that he told us about his fears over what might happen in Iraq

His mother added: "Jason said that during the training for Iraq he had been told that children as young as two carry bombs and the time may come when he would have to shoot one to save himself and his friends. I think they need to think again about the training they give to young soldiers before Iraq.

He had even told his parents that he had been warned by his commanders that he could be ordered to fire on child suicide bombers. It was a fear that he never confronted. Within 48 hours of confessing his concerns to his family, Jason at the young age of 19 years old, was dead after taking an overdose of painkillers and slashing his wrists.

**********

After watching a football match on the night of 10 August, he calmly wrote the suicide note, telling his father it was a letter to a relative, took 60 painkillers then slashed his wrists. As he lay bleeding, the soldier dialed 999, telling the operator: "I have done something stupid."

In normal circumstances, Pte Chelsea, who suffered from dyslexia, may have recovered from his injuries. But when doctors began tests to assess the damage caused to his liver by the drugs, it was found that the organ had been irreparably damaged by alcohol. His family were told his liver was similar to that of someone who had been an alcoholic for 20 years and he would not survive a transplant. He died on 14 August at St James's Hospital in Leeds after his family gave consent for his other organs to be used for transplants.

His father said he believed t he reasons behind his son's drinking had provoked a previous suicide attempt in 2004, when he cut his wrists in his barracks. After this incident, Pte Chelsea was treated by an Army psychiatrist which the family said had restored his confidence.

Mr Chelsea said: "My son started drinking 18 months ago. He destroyed his liver in less than a year and a half. I believe that is because he was being bullied again. He did not want to make anything of it. He was in the Army, he knew he had to be tough. But it only takes a few words. He said he would hear comments aimed at him because of his dyslexia. He was told he would get his colleagues killed because he was stupid.

"I support the British Army and what it does. But I would like to stand before my son's unit with a picture of him in uniform and ask those who made these comments to him time after time to think about the effect they had."

The young soldier's despair was displayed in the note he wrote to his parents before his overdose. He said: "Really sorry, mum and dad. I'm just no good for you. I have got to finish it. I am just a waste."

********** 

Four days before the infantryman attempted to take his life, the British MoD released figures showing that 1,541 soldiers who served in Iraq are suffering from psychiatric illness.

An obscure law approved by a Republican-controlled Congress a decade ago has made the Bush administration nervous that officials and troops involved in handling detainee matters might be accused of committing war crimes, and prosecuted at some point in U.S. courts.

I share this report by Daniel Sherman

The United States'

arms policy is hypocritical

 http://www.iowastatedaily.com/vnews/display.v/ART/2005/06/02/42a09f324ee14

 

The hypocrisy of the American government has escalated to a point where the future and foundation of our nation is in serious danger. This danger is disturbingly evident in the ominous difference between what we preach and what we practice.

Take, for example, the review conference on the non-proliferation treaty that recently ended in failure this past month. The United States went into the meeting with two priorities: North Korea and Iran. It called for amendments to the treaty which would block the development of nuclear weapons by these countries. Yet, at the same time, the United States regarded its obligations under the treaty as voluntary, not mandatory and refused to reaffirm disarmament commitments. Such behavior is easily perceived as arrogant.

The United States develops new nuclear weapons and pursues the idea of weapons in space, which is prohibited under the treaty, while it selectively scolds other nations for pursuing nuclear energy programs, which is not prohibited under the treaty.

The rationale of the United States is that the development of nuclear weapons will aide in stopping proliferation by acting as a deterrent. The problem is that the United States has lost its credibility and its rationale has no merit.

A recent report by the World Policy Institute depicts this hypocrisy: "Arming repressive regimes in all corners of the globe while simultaneously proclaiming a campaign for democracy and against tyranny undermines the credibility of the United States in international forums and makes it harder to hold other nations to high standards of conduct on human rights and other key issues."

Prior to the war on terrorism, 27 countries were banned from purchasing U.S.-made military equipment because of human rights abuses, nuclear testing and/or the harboring of terrorists. After the war began, however, many of these bans were lifted and military assistance was subsequently provided to nations contributing to the fight against terrorism.

It is puzzling to find out that two years after these restrictions were lifted, 20 of the top 25 U.S. arms clients in the developing world were classified by the State Department as being either undemocratic regimes or governments with records of major human rights abuses.

Countries included are Angola, Algeria, Colombia, India, Pakistan, Indonesia, Georgia and Uzbekistan, to name a few. Some of these offer strategic military value, while others offer oil. They all offer business to arms manufacturers, however.

Though dealing arms and providing military assistance to undemocratic regimes seems to be contradictory to our quest for democracy, our government justifies such businesses by claiming that these countries are partners in the war against terrorism. The CIA used the same reasoning when it worked hand in hand with Osama bin Laden, while battling Soviet forces in Afghanistan.

Ironic, isn't it? Essentially, America is bankrolling the abuse of human rights. We preach respect for the dignity of human life, yet we fund its destruction. We claim to fight terror, yet we create it. We want to rid the world of weapons of mass destruction, yet we develop new ones.

It is this hypocrisy that discredits and endangers us. Already, hundreds of thousands of civilians have been affected by the Iraq war. More than 1,600 American soldiers have died. Terrorist attacks continue to increase throughout the world. Basic human rights are being neglected, and instances of torture by the orders of military and civilian leaders are grotesquely indicative of our hypocrisy.

It is time that we consider our collective fate. Despite our differences, it is imperative that we realize our future will be endured together. Should we bring our children and grandchildren into a world of fear and lies or should we stand up together, as one, and demand that the right to life is universal and the act abusing that right is unacceptable? We are the source of our ruler's power; ultimately, it is our decision. ~Daniel Sherman <is a sophomore in liberal arts and sciences-open option from Ames.>

Zebra 3 Reports on Cluster Bombs in Lebanon
Mood:  don't ask
Now Playing: White Phosphorus and Cluster Bombs
Topic: WAR

I posted the following article on PORTLAND INDY MEDIA today

-> http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2006/08/345005.shtml <--

********************************************************


On Tuesday, a UN de-mining official said that Israel dropped cluster bombs on at least 170 villages in southern Lebanon during its 34-day war with Hezbollah guerrillas.

Israel has defended its right to use cluster bombs and says it only deploys them in accordance with international law.

Oddly enough Israel has not admitted that it used them in the Lebanon war?

 

Yet according to tobacco farmer Majed Abu Della, many tobacco fields are also littered with these bombs!

I also read that according to a report published in The New York Times on Thursday, agreements with the US restrict the use of these weapons.

So…… now we are hearing that “made in the USA” cluster bombs, that were used by Israel is also in violation of an US agreement?

Human Rights Watch accuses the Israelis of using such bombs in civilian areas, in violation of international standards.

 

How is it we sell/give Israel cluster bombs to use, that they are not suppose to be using?

And I read where it is stated that The Times has been reporting that: there are three different types of US made cluster bombs that were used

In fact another article form à http://www.alertnet.org/thenews/newsdesk/L17443145.htm I read where experts have identified at least 10 places where air strikes were used to drop cluster bombs. These bombs are designed to puncture tank armor and spray molten shrapnel inside to kill the crew. These US made cluster bombs are released above their targets by jets or artillery.

 

The group from Human Rights said the 10 sites identified were in the areas of Nabatiyeh, Tibnin and Beit Yahoun, and along the road connecting the latter two villages. There is speculation that as many as 10 % of these types of cluster bombs “may not explode” leaving behind an estimate of 8,000 to 9,000 un-exploded DUD laying around

In one city alone it is reported over that they stopped counting bombs at 200. I read that more than 100 Israelis, most of them soldiers have now been killed in the conflict.

And more than 1,000 Lebanese, most of them civilians have also been killed from this conflict as well.

 

I read in a link here à http://www.democracynow.org/article.pl?sid=06/08/10/1339247  that Sam Husseini of the Institute for Public Accuracy who is a reporter, and was waiting outside of FOX NEWS studio, last Sunday in Washington DC, to ask the Israel's ambassador to the United States, Daniel Ayalon,. He was part of a part of a press stakeout. So he grilled Ayalon on Israel's targeting of civilians and use of cluster bombs in Lebanon, Israel's nuclear arsenal and its lack of adherence to United Nations Security Council resolutions. Read the following few sentences that sound to this average joe anybody as …..bald face LIES

 

SAM HUSSEINI: Are you using cluster bombs in Lebanon?

DANIEL AYALON: No, we are not. We're not using anything which is not approved by the UN conventions and charters.

SAM HUSSEINI: Why did you bomb the electrical facilities in Lebanon?

DANIEL AYALON: Lebanon has electric capabilities, which is running. They have running water. We are not targeting any of the infrastructures. We could have done a lot of damage, which we're not doing, specifically because we're very much concerned about the humanitarian conditions over there.

And to add more back up proof that these claims of cluster bombs being  used in spite of the LIES that Daniel Ayalon is purporting.., Independent journalist Dahr Jamail, who exposed how the U.S. used white phosphorus bombs in Iraq, says Israel is using the same tactic in Lebanon –

All this is now confirmed by the Ministry of the Interior in Lebanon, from what I have read on this INDY link here à http://www.indymedia.ie/article/77507    In fact in this article I read where it is also confirmed that in a Southern Lebanon city named Nabatiya, it is not only been suspected that White Phosphorus has been used it also is confirmed by the Minister of the Interior.

Chomsky will explain what other obfuscate
Mood:  chillin'
Now Playing: Conversations With Noam Chomsky
Topic: MEDIA

 

 

 

Hey there how about a good Noam Chomsky lecture to help settle your nerves? This looks to me as to be coming from a  Berkeley College web site.

I really enjoyed the topics and the insight Noam provides....the last topic in his 5 subject lecture was on ACTIVISM and is rather enriching. Watch and listen to this educational and enlightening film from March 2002

http://globetrotter.berkeley.edu/people2/Chomsky/chomsky-con0.html

The subjects are

  1. Background (his)
  2. Anarchism & Power
  3. Thinking & Power
  4. The US Role in the World
  5. Activism (my favorite)

I hope you make the time, to listen to this man explain why some of the horse shit we are fed and manipulations we are dealing with have got to be addressed by Activism and Solidarity. He tells you why and he tells you how.......now who is listening is the problem.

Advertising Slime Ball Loose On School Buss
Mood:  loud
Now Playing: Mind Control? .....what if your child I'm talking about?
Topic: CORPORATE CRAP

 


And what about the stinking sneaky corporate advertising SLIME BALL that is being targeted at our children on their way to school? 

Now is that is a rather . . . Sleazy "sales slime ball" if I ever did see one!

I'm talking about the School Buss Advertising plots that are being proposed by the group on this link --> http://www.eastbayri.com/story/322161115460030.php

The slime ball sale site is here: http://www.busradio.org/

 


Mostly the concept is to pump music and ADDS into the busses, while selling the idea of Safety and getting the children to behave.

Then there is the giving away of PRIZES if the child goes and "LOGS-IN on-line" to the company (propaganda) website and listens to more adds selling products all of course, in between music and prizes and sales pitches, oh my!

Ahhhhhhhh..this is HOGWASH, its corporate sales to kids crap!

I found this Portland Oregon website which has publicized and interesting thing worth reading over. I urge you to check it out, and take action as I did.

It is called the Children's Bill Of Rights you can read it here at this link I provide for all my "child caring concerned good Z3 Readers"

 http://www.commercialalert.org/pbor.pdf

Now Get Active ***** Send you congressman a quick Internet email to let him know you are concerned and aware that a slime ball is loose in our kids school buss, and its not just and only the buss issue. It is in regards to pushing products at our children, it is about stopping corporations from sell and promoting JUNK SLIME AND GARBAGE to the little kids....it must be stopped by people like you and me ...we can help make change, little kids don't need this, and I don't want them to have it!

I ask you Zebra3 Report Readers, Please Support the

 

Parents' Bill of Rights!

Tell your Members of Congress that children are more important than corporate profits. It's quick and real easy to do.
