Thwarting The Gloom: Senryu

THWARTING THE GLOOM

Lights switched on midday
Not shameless exorbitance
… Poetic licence

Unimpeachable

“‘Put it behind us and move on’ is a political term used meaning, “I’ve done something I ought to be thoroughly ashamed of, if not actually prosecuted with the full force of the law, so I wish to push the issue away before people start looking too hard.” – Terry Pratchett.

Pilate – Nuremberg – Obama

PILATE – NUREMBERG – OBAMA

What kind of defence is
“Just following orders”?
I hear you sold your arse
Hope you got a good price

Stop The Rot!

BLOWING THE WHISTLE ON WAR CRIMES IS NOT A CRIME!

Bradley Manning, a U.S. Army intelligence analyst, faces life in prison for allegedly sharing a video of a U.S. helicopter attack that killed 11 civilians and seriously wounded two children in Baghdad, Iraq with the WikiLeaks website.

He has also been charged with blowing the whistle on the “Iraq War Logs”, the “Afghan Diaries”, the “Guantanamo Files” and embarrassing US State Department cables.

In short, he’s been charged with telling us the truth!

For some details of the inhumane treatment of Manning by the US army uncovered by Amnesty see the link below. Bear in mind that he has been accused but not convicted. Still, after the Orwellian “Patriot” Act the “presumed innocent until proven guilty” principle no longer applies these days.
