You don't need to be a linguist to see how tortured the recent Bush admin's attempts to legitimize the use of torture on beings they define as beyond any definable law--international, historical, cultural, supernatural, etc. etc.

Obviously, any entity that would blow itself up and then gibber about God in a tongue unknown to any decent human being begs to be chasttised and burnt and hacked into oblivion. Look at what they did to themselves and what they want to do to others--this in and of itself betrays their bestiality and insanity.

I will not attempt to show any sympathy or pity for this loathesome vermin--lower than baccillus, one-celled amoeba without the decency of an animal covering its own shit with dirt. Shameless, defiling, soulless, faceless, jobless--they defy all human catgories and must therefore be expunged using any means available.

So, avast efforts to limit the use of torture, the revelation of secret torture sites, or the claims that our great leader, Darth Cheney, is doing an end-run around puppet mouthpiece leader. Of course, even if the military manuals ban torture, there always exceptions, which the Rummy man knows best.

Eradicating this scum is legal if we say it is.

Ubu Bush is right, we do not torture. It's only torture if the guy dies... duhhhhhhhhh!

And our heroic warriors in Congress are right to find out who's leaking the truth about the secret torture sites--it's only true if we want it to be.

Of course, keeping them locked up and outa sight is the best policy anyway. Thing is, why waste the time or money? When do those "trunals" get started anyway? Maybe they'll be on TV.

Of course, you can count on those pinko Libs to make fun of those willing to kill in the name of our flag. How come those Libs are so smirky?
