The Geneva
Conventions
Are Chilling


I love the No Pasaran blog because the writers there know how to say a lot in just a few words. Check this out:


... what the Geneva Conventions really say (instead of) what the press is alleging and selling as received wisdom.

Under them (the Geneva Conventions) the al Queda scum are un-uniformed irregulars who target civilians. They can be shot on sight under the protocols. Call them "troops" and they can be locked up for the duration of a conflict.

Still want that thar' Geneva Convention in place, pally? Or just some statute you can vainly hold up that you're convinced makes terrorists just innocent, misunderstood naïfs?


Heh.
