Re: State Dept. Spokesman P. J. Crowley Resigns after Calling Army Treatment of Bradley Manning"Stu
The conditions of incarceration for Bradley Manning smack of psychological torture. Constant solitary confinement and forced nakedness are not normal for prison régimes, even military ones. Being a soldier should not mean absolution from upholding basic human rights, nor should it mean being shriven of those same basic rights should you become subject to the military courts. The Empire thinks differently though, as it appears in Bradley Manning's case. The United States govt. and its military are out to break Manning into tiny little pieces and scatter his remains in public, as an object lesson for the military whistleblowers of the future. State terrorism at its finest. The Empire has nothing left to learn from Josef Stalin and his show-trials.
"It is we the workers who built these palaces and cities here in Spain and in America and everywhere. We, the workers, can build others to take their place. And better ones! We are not in the least afraid of ruins. We are going to inherit the earth; there is not the slightest doubt about that. The bourgeoisie might blast and ruin its own world before it leaves the stage of history. We carry a new world here, in our hearts."
