Dennis the Peasant brings us this flash news report:
In a surprise move today, a coalition of Senate Democrats formally requested that Attorney General Alberto Gonzales revisit his memoranda regarding the definition of torture and international law.
"To be frank,” stated Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA), "We’re concerned that members of the federal judiciary could find themselves being indicted by the International Court of Justice at the Hague.”
When questioned as to the specifics of such charges, Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV) stated, "Specifically, we are requesting that the Nazi Administration of George W. Bush and his wetback minion, Alberto Gonzales, reformulate the definition to exclude ‘the withholding of food and water unto death’ from the definition of torture.”
IMAO calls for an end to suffering:
Africa has been a troubled region for some time. Unstable politics, genocide, aids outbreaks, mass starvation - we do what we can to help, we send money to Sally Struthers, but do we really think Africa is going to get better and be a fully functional continent again? Sure, we can keep things patched together, but each day Africa exists is just another day of suffering. It's time we face up to reality and give Africa the peace it needs in a natural end.
It's time we starve everyone in Africa to death.
