Shocking report uncovers U.S. abuses

The torture of Filipino guerrillas 1899-1902! German POWs roughly manhandled by doughboys in 1918! Eyewitness accounts of GI atrocities against innocent residents of the Solomon Islands in 1942!

Yes, all this and more, coming soon from Newsweek, which today features this dramatic summary:
A long-awaited report on post-9/11 interrogation tactics will reveal harrowing new details about treatment of suspected terrorists.
This sort of stuff is not surprising if you are old enough to remember the post-Watergate era, after Democrats won a huge congressional majority in the 1974 mid-terms and proceeded to "expose" misdeeds of the FBI, CIA and the Pentagon, and impose various "reforms" that had the effect, in combination, of nearly destroying our nation's ability to fight crime, prevent espionage or win wars.

Disapproving of torture is one thing. Emasculating America's anti-terrorism capacity is something else entirely. And it is always wrong to fret over the "rights" of a bloodthirsty animal (e.g., Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, mastermind of the USS Cole bombing) for whom there could be no legitimate complaint of injustice if one of our troops had put a 7.62-mm slug through his skull.


  1. General "Black Jack" Pershing and the Muslim Terrorists in the Philippines before WW I

    Just before World War I, there were a number of terrorist attacks on the United States forces in the Philippines by Muslim extremists. So General Pershing captured 50 terrorists, and had them tied to posts for execution. He then had his men bring in two pigs and slaughter them in front of the, now horrified, terrorists.

    Muslims detest pork, because they believe pigs are filthy animals. Some of them simply refuse to eat it, while others won't even touch pigs at all, nor any of their by-products. To them, eating or touching a pig, its meat, its blood, etc., is to be instantly barred from Paradise (and those virgins), and doomed to hell.

    The soldiers then soaked their bullets in the pigs' blood, and proceeded to execute 49 of the terrorists by firing squad. The soldiers then dug a big hole, dumped in the terrorist's bodies, and covered them in pig blood, entrails, etc. They let the 50th man go.

    And for the next 42 years, there was not a single Muslim extremist attack anywhere in the world.

    Nothing succeeds like success. We have become a nation of men without chests.


  2. Ya know, I think that Pershing account was embellished a little...

    ...but I would like to see some bacon grease bullet casings happening in Iraq & Afghanistan.

    Anyway, Newsweek and other liberals are basking in their "America is evil" pornography again, and just like the 90's when Americans got sick of it, they will again this time around.

    America has tortured and murdered a few enemies over the course of its history.

    So what.

    Are liberals saying we have to suffer Jetson's cars and loser "green" job fantasies because our great grandfathers burnt some German'/Ottoman's feet?

    Go to hell. In fact, go to Canada.

    DAve: I'll bet there is some bacon greasing of cartridges going on.

    TOM: I wouldn't bitch if there was some double tapping going on.
