"They have no regard for human life, neither ours nor their own. I believe this was not an act of desperation but an act of asymmetric warfare against us" - Navy Rear-Admiral Harry Harris, base commander found at this article about the recent suicides at Guatanomo Bay http://thescotsman.scotsman.com/international.cfm?id=861802006
One of those keywords of our era like "Zero Tolerance"...
really shows how incredibly nutty things can be and are. Ok, I am partial.
But what I wonder is if there will even be a look into these suicides at all?!
At the least?
Or whether this Asymmetric Warfare explanation/rhetoric will more or less be thought of as passable. I think we are in era where not only must people pass for white in some form or the other (corporate rule books ruling the day, corny middle-americana fermenting in the "public" mind of what is beautiful, good and just, etc. ) but we now all need to be able-minded to pass for properly Militarized for the Continued War... Hence, such concepts and terms as "Asymmetric Warfare" when speaking of suicide in a prison...
keep you vigilant and ever on the lookout for this new, New war we are involved in. Where up is down, left is right, peace is war, it's all one crazy, violent war-world. Keep shooting, middle-americana "Public" mind. Keep shooting.
