…the US military feel making a man stand for 12 hours is OK.
Not that standing is that bad – but standing in a box of no more than 3X3X6. And this is said to be humane.
At one time the US military was looked up to in regards treating prisoners with great restraint and dignity. What has happened?
IS it Bush and the way he allows such behaviour? I could imagine some of the previous president of the US both turning in their grave at such abuse and just being saddened that this is happening.
“America stands in firm opposition to China’s detention of political dissidents, human rights advocates and religious activists,” Bush said.
“We speak out for a free press, freedom of assembly, and labor rights — not to antagonize China’s leaders, but because trusting its people with greater freedom is the only way for China to develop its full potential,” he said. “And we press for openness and justice not to impose our beliefs, but to allow the Chinese people to express theirs.”
Sheer hypocrisy on Bush’s part – and we know that McCain will continue for this to be allowed.
