And here we have another example of "Human Rights are good, as long as I agree with the opinions of the people who's rights we are discussing!".
I assume you do know about the Watch Lists?
I assume you know that Militias are increasingly being labelled as "potential domestic terrorists"?
I am sure you are aware that several people have already been held for years and then released after being found to be INNOCENT?
I assume you are aware that torture has been consistently proven to be an unreliable source of information?
And I am sure you grasp that many have been detained and held indefinitely based on such false information?
You can't have it both ways, you either abide by international law and Human rights, or you don't. You cannot simply pick and choose what you'll
follow and when as it suits you.
And, unlike you I don't think the civil liberty groups should send their loved ones over there. The members of congress, leaders, your
representatives should be sending their loved ones over there. They go into these wars for oil, profit and strategic advantage, and they expect the
poor people in society to fight the wars for them, to make their investments pay off, to increase their profit on the shares they have.
Those are the people who should be sending their loved ones.
