  1. Well, you’ve started something now – haven’t you! :).

    What I would say, without any malice, is that it is interesting to see how people recognise the abuse of human rights when they may be the victims, whilst potentially condone it (through omission) when it is someone else.

    We had a similar ironic moment when people were calling for troops to be on the streets when we had riots in the UK, when they were condemning the same approach when taken in other countries.

    A very informative blog.

    1. Hey Mark,

      I agree with you wholeheartedly. It reminds me of the blog that got freshly pressed by an Arab woman who was detained this year on 9/11. In accordance with the patriot act, they removed her and too other “swarthy skinned” people from the plane because A passenger had said they were having a suspicious conversation. The conversation was about a pillow, if I recall correctly.

      It sickened me to read her comment stream as people championed the act and our continuing erosion of civil liberties in the name of freedom. It’s two side of the same coin. History, apparently, teaches them nothing. It’s all good until it’s YOU they are coming for.

I love it when you comment...
