Who Build The Nuclear Weapon

Bush signs Bill legalising CIA prisons - TODAYonline, 18 Oct 2006
  • United States President George W Bush yesterday signed a controversial law legalising secret CIA prisons, harsh interrogation practices and military trials as weapons against suspected terrorists.
  • "It is a rare occasion when a president can sign a Bill he knows will save American lives." "I have that privilege this morning," Mr Bush said at a White House signing ceremony.
  • "The Bill I sign today helps secure this country, and it sends a clear message: This nation is patient and decent and fair, and we will never back down from the threats to our freedom."
  • Both houses of Congress last month passed the Bill, which became a focus of the debate over security and civil liberties in Mr Bush's war on terror, launched after the Sept 11, 2001, attacks.
  • The measure was drafted in response to a US Supreme Court ruling in June that Mr Bush had overstepped his powers and breached the Geneva Conventions by setting up special war crimes tribunals for "war on terror" suspects.
  • The sweeping legislation sets guidelines for interrogating suspected terrorists and would send several hundred inmates held at the US naval base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to trial after years of detention.

Legalising CIA prison with harsh interrogation practices and military trials sounds the same to me as building nuclear weapon in North Korea and allowing Japan to have their very own army platoons. The only difference is who made the decision and how you phrase it nicely with your super-duper powerful English, "It is a rare occasion when a president can sign a Bill he knows will save American lives.".

If we were being given a chance to build such a prison (or we already have it?), this is how we phrase it. "Finally we got to build a prison, we can jail and abuse them, get them to admit they are the stupid terrorist suspect. Then we lock them up for as long as we want. We are the law."

And here comes America.... "Hey, you violated human rights".. My foot!

The similarity between these two is dictatorship to rule the world by their own law.
