Bush’s second inaugural speech

Scott Rosenberg says what I think much better than I can. But in essence, I am scared out of my whits.

Scott Rosenberg’s Links & Comment

The world is a simple place to Bush. For him, “the moral choice between oppression, which is always wrong, and freedom, which is eternally right” is one that involves no hard calls. And since America represents freedom and freedom is eternally right, it must still be right even when it locks hundreds of people away for life without trial or it tortures prisoners in a war launched on a lie. We are the forces of freedom; we can admit no wrong because we can do no wrong.

    The French are really abysmal when it comes to detention of terrorists. They have laws considered

    draconian, and in the U.S., illegal. The U.S. is not the only country detaining people without trial. Torture(i.e. humiliation) as opposed to beheadings? I will take humiliation for 50 dollars.
