It's time for Rumsfield to Resign...

Coming straight from the mouth of the man that gave the infamous, confusing, and ridiculous "Known Unknowns Speech" we have another vague and ludicrous utterance of words that are completely and truly "Rummie Style."

"My impression is that what has been charged thus far is abuse, which I believe technically is different from torture," Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld said on Tuesday. "I don't know if it is correct to say what you just said, that torture has taken place, or that there's been a conviction for torture. And therefore I'm not going to address the torture word."

Alright, for clarification let's take a quick look at the definition of Torture...

tor·ture ( P ) Pronunciation Key (tôrchr)

1. Infliction of severe physical pain as a means of punishment or coercion.
2. An instrument or a method for inflicting such pain.
2. Excruciating physical or mental pain; agony: the torture of waiting in suspense.
3. Something causing severe pain or anguish.

Now, the definition of "Abuse."

a·buse ( P ) Pronunciation Key (-byz)
tr.v. a·bused, a·bus·ing, a·bus·es

1. To use wrongly or improperly; misuse: abuse alcohol; abuse a privilege.
2. To hurt or injure by maltreatment; ill-use.
3. To force sexual activity on; rape or molest.
4. To assail with contemptuous, coarse, or insulting words; revile.
5. Obsolete. To deceive or trick.

Well, I can understand where he might get the idea of simply labeling it "abuse" when merely reading about the "sexual" side of the torturing without considering WHAT methods were used. But this picture speaks for itself.

That Iraqi was told that if he got down or rested he would be electrecuted. Is that not An instrument or a method for inflicting pain?

Another picture shows a pyramid of naked Iraqi's... that is more than just sexual abuse. That is piling a bunch of men up into a freakin Pyramid. Think about that? That is torture.

I am sick and tired of Rummie's speeches which are aimed at stupifying American's using confusion and manipulation of language in order to make it seem that things aren't as bad as they actualy are. This is causing Americans not to understand the gravity of the situation. If you thought the Arabs hated us before... now they will hate us even more than ever thought possible. We came to Iraq in the first place on false premises which quickly twisted into a "liberation" campaign. The Bush Administration was going to Iraq because they had "torture chambers." Now America is torturing... this is clear hypocrisy, and the Arabs will never forget it. Since the beginning of the War on Terrorism, all America has insured is the prolonging existance of the Terrorists threat.

His pentagon ruling that the United States would no longer be bounded by the Geneva Convention's restrictions overturned enormous gains in the world to ensure fair treatment of humanity. In his decision he justified these types of actions by our soldiers. He failed to take action against warnings that bad things were going on... For this, he should be fired. The Geneva Convention itself was far too important to the very essence of what America was supposed to be bringing to Iraq! LIBERATION! Liberation from torture and dictatorial control, and we brought a false notion of "dimplomacy" which most arabs didn't fall for in the first place. This is proven hogwash in the fact that the Iraqi government isn't going to get full sovereignty in the first place!

How anyone could support this administration now is beyond myself... and anyone that does is either a sick mother fucker, or they are totaly ignorant and have fallen for every scheme hatched by this Government thus far with the goal of stupifying the country about what is actualy occuring. Even if Bush didn't know about the torturing that should be enough to get him out of office come November... his ignorance should scare the living shit out of all of us. What else will this great president allow to slip through unnoticed? It is now clearer than ever that in reality George Bush is the "Clear and Present Threat" of American lives today...

In every action initiated so far by our great leaders to "fight terrorism" they have only succeeded in prolonging the threat and raising it to an astronomical level. The hatred of Arabs towards Americans will now exceed anything we could possibly understand... and we will, mind you - we will, suffer for this. It would probably only be the quick impeachment of Bush and his entire administration out of office that could save any face America might have... if American's did that then it is possible that the Arabs would not consider us such ignorant bufoons... but when we allow men like Bush to deceive us for so long, it almost makes me wonder if we actualy deserve what's coming to us... This era should make us all ashamed to be Americans.
