Murder, Torture, Illegal Wars, War Crimes

Mortality after the 2003 invasion of Iraq:
a cross-sectional cluster sample survey
By Gilbert Burnham, Riyadh Lafta, Shannon Doocy, Les Roberts
The number of people dying in Iraq has continued to escalate. The proportion of deaths ascribed tocoalition forces has diminished in 2006, although the actual numbers have increased every year. Gunfire remains themost common cause of death, although deaths from car bombing have increased. Read The Full Report [pdf]http://informationclearinghouse.info/pdf/lancet101106.pdf===

War Crimes Report
Shows US Violations of International Law Demands Prosecution of US Military and Civilian Leaders
The violence of the Iraq War, the chaos that has come to Iraq, can be traced directly to the illegality of the invasion and occupation of that country and the illegality of the tactics and weapons being used to maintain the occupation. U.S. War Crimes in Iraq and Mechanisms for Accountability documents these violations and calls on us all to demand investigation and prosecution of violations of international law by military and civilian leaders. http://informationclearinghouse.info/article15261.htm

===The Mushroom Cloud over the U.N. By Mike Whitney The Bush administration has repeatedly rejected North Korea’s appeals for a “non-aggression” pact. Bush believes that he has the inherent right to attack whomever he chooses if it is in the national interest, which is to say, if it furthers his ambitions for global domination. http://informationclearinghouse.info/article15271.htm

===Torture, Moral Values, and Leadership of the Free World
By Edward S. Herman
In the discussions of the new torture-permissive legislation the media do not bring up Bush's statement of June 26, 2003, that "Freedom from torture is an inalienable human right. Yet torture continues to be practiced around the world by rogue regimes," and that in this struggle "we are leading this fight by example."[6] This display of hypocrisy without limit, and its unintended and unrecognized designation of the United States as a "rogue regime," http://informationclearinghouse.info/article15270.htm
Comments:
The hypocrisy is rampant in US policy. It is sad to say that America is "leading" by example and to know that her example is torturous. Sad indeed.

Peace.
