More naked pyramids on the way?

A judge has ordered the Pentagon to release 100 new photos of prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib. Fun stuff.

After all, who needs Playboy when you've got Lynndie England, a hood, and some electrical wire?

Well, um, not most people.

But for those who seem to get off on torture--aka the Bush administration and their rightwing apologists--this should offer plenty of new inspiration.

    I can't wait to see Charles Grainer, the ringleader, force some poor prisoner to simulate oral sex. Great fun...NOT.

    What I think is a riot is BushCo, led by Cheney and Rummy, poo-pooing the whole prison abuse scandal while addressing the AF Academy and West Point (and after our own AG proposed these abuses in the first place) while you have the fucking Pentagon saying the exact opposite. What's a military cadet to believe?

    And Bush kept hammering away at Kerry last Oct. about sending "mixed messages."

    *shudder* I would welcome the hood and electrical wire if it meant not having to look at that nasty Lynndie England again.

    Yeah, she was not exactly easy on the eyes, although that other girl, Sabrina Harman--the one who was standing in front of the naked pyramid--was cute.

    Still, cuteness doesn't exactly make up for torture...

    I don';t think I can even laugh at what's happening with this (despite your well-writted post, no doubt). These pictures are going to hit the Arab media like a firestorm and any Muslim not already radicalized is going to be pissed. Quite frankly, I'm scared for our future.

    (None of that is to say, however, that I don't think the pictures should be released- I'm just terrified of what will happen when they are).

    Honestly, I'm scared too. But I've been scared for so long that sometimes I feel like all I can do is try to find some humor...although this post was pretty serious for my blog. More like outrage thinly disguised as humor, because I just had to say something.

    I'm getting so sick of every damn thing I read that I feel like I should have a separate blog just for my constant outrage at what the Bush administration and its cronies are doing to America and the world. It's hard to remember a time when I wasn't constantly upset about the state of politics.

    In this case, the Arab world already hates us so much that I'm not sure anything could make them hate us more...but I'd rather not find out. And unfortunately, it looks like we're going to. If all else fails, there's always the option of curling up in a ball and crying....

    What gets me is how can those involved can sit back and allow this to happen. You would think someone would come to their senses and try to prevent this from happening.

    I know...it's awful. There's just no accountability.
